Do You Feel Lucky Albatross?

This spoof blog has been set up to enhance the reader's enjoyment of a story by absurdist writer Rhys Hughes (that's me!)

The story in question is called 'Rommel Cobra's Swimming Carnival' (an allusion to 'Monty Python's Flying Circus') and is narrated by a professional blogger known only as The Postmodern Mariner.

The motto of the Postmodern Mariner is:
"Do you feel lucky albatross? Well do you, punk?"

Near the beginning of the story, The Postmodern Mariner gives the address of his blog, and it occurred to the real author that it might be a nice touch to set up a real blog in case a reader decides to check the validity of the address.

If you are such a reader, well done! I guess you deserve some sort of prize. I don't know what yet!

The story is only in the early stages of being written. It is being written specifically for a pirate anthology that Jeff VanderMeer is planning to compile and that may be issued by Night Shade Books in 2007.
