Just for fun

A big tip of the fedora to Dave's Fiction Warehouse for posting the winners of the 2007 Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest, especially this top entry in the detective category, from Bob Millar of Hässelby, Sweden:

"I'd been tailing this guy for over an hour while he tried every trick in the book to lose me: going down side streets, doubling back, suddenly veering into shop doorways, jumping out again, crossing the street, looking for somewhere to make the drop, and I was going to be there when he did it because his disguise as a postman didn't have me fooled for a minute."

Says Dave, "This winning entry shows that those Swedes are almost as good at crime fiction parody as they are at straight crime fiction."
