HOW TO EAT FRIED FURRIES

And now for something completely different...

I am a huge fan of the Pythons, and admire their non-linear method of storytelling (you know, the way they told stories in the old episodes of FLYING CIRCUS; with absurd segues and recurring themes).

I admire that style of storytelling so much, in fact, that I borrowed it for my first book, the black comedy HOW TO EAT FRIED FURRIES. It's a novella set in a world where farmers raise furries (you know, people in animal costumes) as livestock. Along the way, I introduce not only furries, but also reverse-furries. The Amish make an appearance, as do the dastardly Pseudo-Amish.

I'm intending to share this with everyone here...not as "spam" (for, as we know, the Pythons DON'T LIKE SPAM).

But I just want to thank the Pythons for being ground-breakers on television all those years ago. It makes it a little easier to be (hopefully) breaking new ground in fiction these days.

Anyone interested in checking out my book can do so at Amazon.com. Just click on the linky.

Genji, that's an excellent thought! I need to check with the publisher to see if they would okay that (and maybe with Pythonline, too?) Would they be okay with that?

If you explain the Python link (influence, tribute, style, etc.) then Pythonline wouldn't have a problem with the content, as long as you have permission to post copyrighted material.

Sgt. Looney: "bizzaro author series"? didn't know about that....damn you Trinidad and your lack of advertising!
Nice idea for a book though. I'll ask for it for Christmas ;)
