It was a dark and stormy night











"Hey, children, it's storytime! Today we'll be reading My Pet G --"
















"Hold it right there, kid. You're gonna listen to this story instead. And don't forget the rest. If you know what's good for you."













"I know what's good for me, Sam, and it's a saucy tale."


















"Saucy is fine and dandy, but how about saucy with a side of strange."












"We'll keep going. You want another one? Just say the word. Instead of going to prison you'll hear this story about a bastard."

Thanks for the links. I just read Scarlett Blue's and enjoyed it very much. I'll be checking out the others throughout the weekend.

Very nice bit o' the pimpin' there. Thanks, though it would figure that the thing I have been the most unsure about writing would get the most press. I need to practice in that genre it seems. You are encouraging me to do it, and so you will share in the blame.

Tom Harper said...

Cool, the cover of my favorite Doors album. They were never quite as good after that one. IMHO.

Mary Ellen said...

Thanks for the links, it was the first time I've checked out Scarlett Blue's blog and absolutely loved that story. Checking on the other links now....am I going to be tested on all these stories? Do you have any Cliff Notes?

Candace said...

Thanks for the tour of blogosphere litrachure, Randal! I say, some jolly good reads there!

Mauigirl said...

Great stories, thanks for sending us to them!

Thanks for the link, Mr. Grave. Love that pick of Bogart.

Graves.

This weekend of Tequila, sun and yardwork finally caught up with me.

susan said...

'saucy with a side of strange' ..and one of my favorite album covers too! Thanks, Randal.

I'm familiar with the work of everyone else you linked to but guilty of not always announcing my presence. I'll attempt to alter that habit.

Okeedokee then. I'm ready for a trip through the inter-tubes to read. See ya when I get back.

Ummmm I think you my baby's daddy

Isn't that Scarlet a trip? -)

There is truth in every cliche.

Don't tell anyone, but I hear that Sam Spade had an affair with Mrs. Archer right before her husband died.

Randal Graves said...

angie, I hope they were all enjoyable.

FB, I'm a dude. Of course the erotica would be the thing I would link to. You know us guys are simple creatures. Please, blame me for more perversion on the tubes. A badge of honor.

frederick, I think one needs to be stoned to read my crappy blog, hence, the links to better things!

tom, that is a great record, and you might be right, but I do dig L.A. Woman a lot.

ME, she can spin a good yarn. Cliffs Notes? Are you kidding? That would require work!

candace, bloody 'ell right they is!

mauigirl, don't thank me, thank their brains!

liberality, no need to kid, I am a lot of the time!

dean, no problem, but you really need to cut back on the yardwork. Might I suggest replacing it with more tequila?

susan, de rien. Hey, even a 'me too!' works.

POP, at least there's no baking today!

welfare queen, I might be, but you're not getting any money!

tomcat, she certainly is!

fairlane, just say no to drugs.

dr. zaius, tell anyone what?

I went through this post by just looking at the pictures. It's quite the storyline indeed.

Scarlet W. Blue said...

Ah, this is where the new peops have been coming frm and nobody told me! I'm behind on my reading. And on my grading. And on my dishes. And on my laundry. And on my bills.... Actually, I'd better get on those bills now....

Thanks, Rannald.

Well done. A clever and entertaining way to do the link post.
