The Eye of Argon

This is just amazing. Jim Theis, the author of this masterwork, has the most amazing talent for writing cringe-worthy, innuendo-laced dialogue and vague, ambiguous prose, all shot through with confounding tense changes and inappropriate word usage. But best of all are his detailed descriptions. I dare you to take them literally. If you can find one that doesn't leave you seeing the world of Norgolia looking like the painting of an insane, aspiring Picasso, you have far more talent than I.

But the biggest challenge of all, which is a tradition that has long been treasured at sci-fi conventions: Read the whole thing aloud without bursting into laughter.
