Writers getting involved in their stories?

Capt Zapp

It appears some writers really get into their stories. Every now and then the title/artist comes across as that anyway. The one that showed up today on the "Random story from the archives" is:

"How Ronny Throckmorton Was Saved From The Indians by Lubrican"

Anyone else find interesting coincidental combinations like this?

Those instances of author interjection always disturb me


I don't think he's referring to author interjections, but cases where the title + byline makes an interesting combination.

The specific example is the story "How Ronny Throckmorton Was Saved From The Indians"
Author: Lubrican

So when you put the story and byline together, you get: "How Ronny Throckmorton Was Saved From The Indians by Lubrican"

Not sure that has anything at all to do with your questions...


Not really. I was humored by how the title showed up on the feed. The way it displayed it looked like Lubrican was the one who rescued Ronny Throckmorton.

Duh! I completely missed that, thinking it was an intentional reference to another author's reference.

Please, ignore my previous rant. It only interferes with a good chuckle.

This is kind of like those old book title jokes, such as:

Into the Dark Cave by Hugo Furst

The Yellow River by I.P.Daily

I wonder if there are a lot of stories like this where Lubrican's hero isn't named Bob?

You made a comment on an thread where puns are being thrown around without making a pun of your own!

Who are you and what have you done with the real richardschagrin?

Same here, and I was just about to hunt it up. I liked Lubrican's story and looked forward to a parody.

Hint: I'll bet Robert wouldn't object to such a parody. He'd probably laugh right along with you.

What does it matter that someone carried a flag past him?

Why? Why not.
