I Couldn't Wait Till April Fools' Day
« on: March 09, 2017, 11:03 AM »
The Devil's Slushpile

I have asked agents and editors to send me all the rejects from their slushpiles.

I will make a huge stack, 755 or so feet tall.

It will be the new Devil's Slushpile National Monument.

Parking, concessions, everything. It may not be a wildly popular tourist stop.

(Sorry.)

The concessions stand could serve humble pie, crow, and lightly-beaten dead horse burgers. Heh.

For additional entertainment and fun, there could be a nightly lighting of the huge rejection bonfire, creating another landmark, the Valley of Ashes of Broken Dreams.

If you build it, they will come.
