Bulwer-Lytton Awards Given

The annual Bulwer-Lytton awards, given to the person
who writes the first sentence of the wosrt imaginable
novel, were awarded yesterday. The winners in all
categories (including the sci-fi and fantasy
categories) are given here.
I love the sci-fi dishonourable mention: Rodney
knew that he was going to die a horrible, screaming,
unspeakable death, when he arrived on the bridge in a
uniform that did not match the others, was referred
to only as “yeoman” and was to be sent planetside
with Captain Kirk and the regular away team.
