...WE WILL CALL IT THE BIBLE
MANY OF OUR READERS
WILL NEVER READ ANOTHER BOOK
WHILE CONDEMNING OTHERS WHO DO...
PAYMENT TO BE DETERMINED
There were over two hundred submissions. Only twenty authors would be published.
This want ad was posted two thousand years ago.
Fred Dullman submitted a purely factual account of something or other.
Gene Siskokowitz did otherwise: he ornamented things, stretched truth beyond recognition.
Guess which one made the cut?
Not only did he get published but Mr. Siskowitz got himself a nom de plume.
They called him Genesis.
Another nom de plume was given to Cleon Stasis who wrote with an arabesque regard for reality.
He became E. CCle Siastis. His wife divorced him because she hated poetry.
A boy named Jake Cross was given a loincloth and a Beatles recording of All You Need Is Love. His name was changed to Jesus Christ.
The Cross family was given the rights to the writing implements and in modern society, they manufactured Cross Pens. A cousin of Jake, fifty generations removed, became an artist and a party host. This descendent was Gerald Murphy. He married Sara Gluckman whose name appeared repeatedly, fifty generations ago, in that book which proved, indeed to be a best-seller of exact Biblical proportions.
