Bulwer-Lytton Awards

I like to keep up with the Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest. When I was a student at Mississippi State, one of my former roommates was a participant in the competition and actually had a couple of entries published in one of their books.

Here's the Grand Prize recipient:

Gerald began--but was interrupted by a piercing whistle which cost him ten percent of his hearing permanently, as it did everyone else in a ten-mile radius of the eruption, not that it mattered much because for them "permanently" meant the next ten minutes or so until buried by searing lava or suffocated by choking ash--to pee.

Click here to see that entry, additional winners, and other notable entries.
