This was the #1 Digg this morning:
Best First Page of Any Book Ever? (click on it to read without squinting)
Turns out it's a real book. No kidding. Moon People, by Dale M. Courtney. Part One of the Moon People Trilogy, according to Dale's blog, which means that there is even more of this to cherish in the future. If you thought the first chapter was way too much to be the real deal, here's Chapter 9:
Here's Dale's bio. This is the best part:
"...two years latter my only son was born. He was a strutting buck. We named him Charles Earl Courtney. Well then we migrated to the Ormond Beach, Florida were I had a hobby of making Global Economic Equality and foreign policies for years but I never thought I would be able to use it for anything, but low and behold we went to war with Iraq and Afghanistan because of 9-11. I remember it was April 1, 2007 when President Bush came on the airway and was asking for Ideas on the Iraq and Iran problem at the time Iran had 15 British Solders hostages. Well One thing for sure I’ve always have an Idea. I’m a firm believer that a simple Idea can solve everything. Well I was lucky because my Idea worked and from there on I gave about 50 more Ideas and I’m still going."
So the question is, are they using them?
The best part of all this, of course, are the reviews on Amazon. This blog is becoming a self fulfilling prophecy with the name and all, ain't it?
