Had a thought: what would the longest and shortest books in the verse be about if they were written by a character...
Here's my ideas:
Shortest
"Things I like about the Alliance" by Mal Reynolds
"Men I wouldn't marry" by YoSaffBridge

Longest:
"Things I know about Engines" by Kaywinnet Lee Fry
"Things I know" by River Tam

Post your ideas!

The World According to Mal.

No chapter breaks, bad sentence structure, run-on sentences --basicaly one huge sprawling, out-of-control diatribe that spirals off on random tangents whenever one wanders by and leaves the reader (and the writer) wondering "what was I talking about again?"

I wish I could take credit for it, but it was coined by someone in a thread on the "other board". The thread was about: What was The Operative's real name?

Come to think of it, it may have been TheOneTrueB!x who thought up the name Theo P. Erative.
