And you thought your writing was bad...

Need an ego boost? Read these blurbs about the book Atlanta Nights, considered by some to be the worst book ever written. And, remember, even your rough draft isn't this bad:

"The world is full of bad books written by amateurs. But why settle for the merely regrettable? Atlanta Nights is a bad book written by experts." — T. Nielsen Hayden

"I stayed upright reading it." — Jane Yolen

"ATLANTA NIGHTS makes the legendary EYE OF ARGON read like Asimov!" — Nick Pollotta

"ATLANTA NIGHTS: I haven't been this stunned since my colonoscopy." — Dennis L. McKiernan

"That's so bad it makes my skin hurt." — Raymond E. Feist

"Unputupwithable!" — M. V. Capobianco

"ATLANTA NIGHTS: surely to be the Great American Naval!" — Sherwood Smith

"ATLANTA NIGHTS democratizes the practice of fiction. If this can get published, ANYTHING can." — Susan Shwartz

"Better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. On second thought, maybe not." — Roby James

"Funnier than reading a ketchup packet!" — Chuck Rothman

"From a distance, it looks like a normal book." — Laura Burt

"ATLANTA NIGHTS: Don't Let This Happen To You." — Roby James


  1. Hehehe. :P
    Definitely gave me a smile, thanks lei!

  2. Thursday's ego boost brought to you by LuLu publishing and some very insane authors :o)

  3. EDIT: You can get a copy of Atlanta Nights from LuLu (proceeds going to a charity). It was originally written for PublishAmerica to see if they actually edited submitted work. And written by sci-fi writers who took umbrage to the fact that PA said sci-fi and fantasy authors weren't able to create real characters.

    It's all there on the website. Very amusing. :o)
