This Blog Needs a Man-Eating Jellyfish

Jane Austen and creatures from the deep? Hmm.

I have family in town, but here’s a fun article from the author of “Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters”, Ben H. Winters.

This Scene Could Really Use a Man-Eating Jellyfish
How I wrote Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters.
By Ben H. Winters

The Daily Squirrel: gun

His gun lay only inches from his fingertips, but he couldn’t reach it. Sweat slid past his ear as he relaxed his shoulder and stretched his arm until his finger grazed the muzzle. Sending up a silent plea of desperation, he willed the gun to come to him.

It didn’t obey.

Arnold cried out in frustration, his breath coming in short gasps. His head throbbed and the room swirled around him as his shoulder protested his efforts. He couldn’t remember why he needed the gun, but he knew it was urgent.

    If only I had a publisher who asked me to write a book about jellyfish-hilarious rendition of the “mash up” but not actually one.

    Why does he need the gun? What’s going on? That can’t be it… there has to be more… What happens if he doesn’t get it? Ack!

    S….T….E….LLLAAAAAAAAAA! (Shameless Over the Hedge reference)

    *grin* Loved the Squirrel!
