The Mystery as a Feature Film

Postby rufustfirefly » Fri Dec 04, 2015 8:32 pm

I have written a number of books, but one that is very special to me is "The Mystery." It may be because of my age and heritage, but I do know that I wept as I wrote one scene because I was so moved by it. It was weird because it was fiction God-willing, I would like to make this into a feature film one day.


I wept as I read the entire thing, Ray.

Mystery Science Theater 3000 is coming back, so do it, Ray.

Anyway, I want it to be read, so we are making it freely available (you only pay for the shipping). The reason I want to do this is in the hope that you will see its potential to reach the lost, and order it in bulk (at a really low price).

Back on Dec. 22, 2014 I posted that Ray was offering "The Mystery" for free. That's almost a year ago. Ray can't even give it away. He must have a large stock of it that he's trying to get rid of.

The book has been re-edited and greatly improved since the version listened to by Marianne.

Wasn't the re-edited version the one Ray posted on his blog? If not, re-edit shit is still shit.

I'm sure Comfort fancies himself as a Hemingway, Melville, or Twain.

The only reason Ray edited that POS book was that we ripped it shreds here and on his blog. Ray was pleased with the first edition.
Stop doubting and beleive Milo. Then everything will make sense.

Only the ignorant minions of Comfort would fall for that shit.
As a person who has tried on more occasions than I care to remember to write decent prose, not even a novice author could weep on writing a scene since the entire setting was thought through in advance. Authors do not weep at their own prose. If they are serious, the weeping (or laughing, or sadness, or jubulation) was the impetus for writing the story.

Of course the writing skill of Comfort's minions is non existent beyond spouting ignorant religious sounding aphorisms on a blog post.

The whole thing is beyond ridiculous.
