It seems about time someone resurrected a classic form:
The cheap, pulp fiction novelette. Here it is, retro fans!
A friend asked, “Jed, where do you find your story ideas?”
My answer: “I lay on my back and stare at the ceiling a lot. The story just kind of appears, like a movie.”
“Really? What do you see on the ceiling right now?”
“Well, I see the hero, Bob. He is lost on a dark forest path. It’s a dangerous place. Bob needs help, but I think Jed and his girlfriend, Francine, might help him."
"Do you address important philosophical questions in this tale?"
"Of course! What causes beautiful Princess Mabel to cry so much?... and is she really wearing a royal gown beneath her long hair?...
and can goats actually belch tin cans?...
and what is the most socially acceptable way to befriend a gargoyle?...
and MOST important...
Can Jed really promise Bob a happy ending, or is he offering more than he can deliver?"
Don't miss this thrilling classic pulp fiction novelette:
****** SAVING BOB *******
I have added a bonus: The final chapter is a separate short story entitled "Blurry Bernie" Enjoy!
