First Review of Chapbook + Exciting News

Review

Received your chapbook in the post today, and have just finished reading it. I enjoyed it very much, thank you. the old man reminded me of an old man i used to work with. except he wasn't evil. he was odd though. during the sixties he used to join occult groups to meet chicks. i don't think he got to meet many. he was asked to leave, usually, for asking too many questions. he once brought in a newspaper cutting about a man who could bring women to orgasm using only the power of his mind, which he then tried to replicate for the rest of the day.

News

I have been asked to write a short piece for the new print edition of www.hivemagazine.co.uk

I don't know what to write about. I would like suggestions, in response to this post, of a title for the piece to inspire me. I would like the title to be 2 or 3 words long, preferably 2. I would like the title to be exciting.

The winner will receive no prize.

Thank you for the chapbook, I very much enjoyed it and am now checking my flat for snails and old men. No snails as yet but I have disposed of a clump of elderly gents congregating under my fridge.

Possible title:

Banana Massacre

"unlawful killing"

or

"libyan spitjob"

I cannot top Banana Massacre.

So far Unlawful Killing is winning. Although Banana Massacre has a certain ring to it i did not find it inspiring enough as it is too specific. Unlawful Killing seems quite open for interpretation.

title: WASP CUNT.

Aiden Clarkson said...

or, i suppose, CUNT WASP.

"big legs"

or

"the lady"

or

"pizza dinner"

Socrates Adams-Florou said...

I think so far it has to be "The Lady". Simple - elegant, and I know a lot about ladies.

A lot.

Crispin Best said...

this is an anthology waiting to happen

today i thought:
'psycho the rapist'

but it's more on the 3 side of '2 or 3... preferably 2'

Socrates Adams-Florou said...

The Lady won.
