the bottom falls out

I  told you in my previous post, titled meeting in the middle, that SB and I were working on a book together.  Well, only a few chapters in I am sad to report that Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith did not work out.  SB informed me by the third chapter that even the addition of zombies could not spice it up for him.  No, Ms. Austen did not light any literary fires.  On top of that, the recent events of naked Rudy Eugene eating the face of his live victim in Miami, porn actor Luka Magnotta making a snuff film in Montreal, and Alexander Kinyua of Maryland man who ate his house mate's his heart and brain, are truly stranger than this fiction and frankly, make the zombie tale more horribly believable than ridiculously farcical.
