The Monkey King's Used Primate Emporium and Book Reviews

The List of Fame, Shame, and Literary Names.

January 1, 2002 - ?. Posted 14 March 2006

All right, we're all current! Now, hopefully there's some sort of use for this. Looking for those Hemingway song parodies? They started this year with "The Old Man and the Sea." Trying to find those Family Circus abominations? The author is Bil Keane. Want to know if I ALWAYS hated Kerouac. Now it's easier to find. Are you, perhaps, a megalomaniacal author who wants to see if anybody's been talking shit about your work (And this has already happened to me). Look it up, Mr. Sensitive.

Be warned, however, if you do use this page for these purposes, you're a bigger dork than I am for making this page in the first place.
