It was a dark and stormy night, the beer fell down our throats in torrents, except when we missed our mouths and soiled our trousers. 

Today, we cover what is considered to be the worst opening line to a novel in all of human history. But don’t take our word for it. There’s a whole contest dedicated to it! We discuss why the opening sentence is bad, then read a bunch of winners and losers from the 2019 Bulwer Lytton Fiction Contest.

DBS #46: Comic Book Writers And Their Novels Drunken Pen Writing Podcast

We start the episode off by talking wayyyy too long about superheroes and their sexual abilities. Blame Batman! After that nonsense, we discuss known comic book writers who also have great novels on the market. We end things with some more book talk about what we're reading or plan to read next, as well as some stuff we feel like we need to check out in the future.
