The textual content, most likely spurious, used to be present in the ruins of the inn Calgary, Paris, on June 29, 1901.

Meanwhile, Girodas came across traders and organize store, and one in every of his writers used to be then-young-up-and-coming Barry N. Malzberg, who had no longer but made a reputation for himself in SF, and who were promoting books to Midwood as Mel Johnson.

Barry Malzberg's champion novel
American technological know-how fiction writer Barry Malzberg has acknowledged that he as soon as wrote a unique in sixteen hours - and bought it to a writer. I've usually puzzled what the booklet was once and the way Malzberg pulled the article off. It has to be the fastest-written novel ever that has been released through a advertisement publisher.
Then on the Fictionmags email checklist there has been a dialogue of stychomythia (in which anyone says whatever and another individual grabs the sentence and ends it, similar to Huey, Louie and Dewey do in Donald Duck). This has been extensively utilized in lots of paperback novels whilst a author desired to fill pages quick and wrote brief sentences that made up a complete paragraph (which won't truly be an instance of stychomythia). even if, Malzberg wrote at the acknowledged list:
I made my very own contribution to stychomythia in DIARY OF A PARISIAN CHAMBERMAID, Midwood Books 1969 (my 16-hour novel).
The protagonist wrote a poem.
Quite an extended poem.
A lengthy poem of brief lines.
It absorbed 5 pages.
I take note the 1st line:
"Paris is a nipple."
I requested Malzberg extra approximately this and he wrote back:
[The ebook in query was once] DIARY OF A PARISIAN CHAMBERMAID, via Claudine Dumas. Midwood Books 1969. 60,000 phrases. Written on St. Valentine's Day that yr. i'll do whatever like that during these years. Mozart wrote the Paris Symphony in 3 days. yet i'm no Mozart. neither is DIARY OF A PARISIAN CHAMBERMAID the Paris Symphony.
