The textual content, most likely spurious, was once present in the ruins of the inn Calgary, Paris, on June 29, 1901. The authorship of this diary is unknown and it can't be traced. however it does offer a desirable account of what occurred there among one enterprising lass, her boss Sebastian, and lots of guests.

Girodas desired to pass into co-partner enterprise with publishes who had pirated his titles, yet not anyone was once — why pay out what that they had been getting at no cost? Plus Girodas had a few stigma hooked up to him…he used to be no longer relatively welcomed within the united states, yet tolerated, and the feds have been searching for methods of having rid of him, which they finally did.

Meanwhile, Girodas came upon traders and organize store, and certainly one of his writers was once then-young-up-and-coming Barry N. Malzberg, who had no longer but made a reputation for himself in SF, and who have been promoting books to Midwood as Mel Johnson.

Barry Malzberg's champion novel

American technology fiction writer Barry Malzberg has stated that he as soon as wrote a unique in sixteen hours - and offered it to a writer. I've frequently puzzled what the e-book was once and the way Malzberg pulled the object off. It has to be the fastest-written novel ever that has been released via a advertisement publisher.

Then on the Fictionmags email record there has been a dialogue of stychomythia (in which somebody says anything and another person grabs the sentence and ends it, similar to Huey, Louie and Dewey do in Donald Duck). This has been extensively utilized in lots of paperback novels whilst a author desired to fill pages speedy and wrote brief sentences that made up an entire paragraph (which would possibly not really be an instance of stychomythia). notwithstanding, Malzberg wrote at the acknowledged list:

I made my very own contribution to stychomythia in DIARY OF A PARISIAN CHAMBERMAID, Midwood Books 1969 (my 16-hour novel).
The protagonist wrote a poem.
Quite an extended poem.
A lengthy poem of brief lines.
It absorbed 5 pages.
I be mindful the 1st line:
"Paris is a nipple."

I requested Malzberg extra approximately this and he wrote back:

[The e-book in query used to be] DIARY OF A PARISIAN CHAMBERMAID, by means of Claudine Dumas. Midwood Books 1969. 60,000 phrases. Written on St. Valentine's Day that 12 months. i may do whatever like that during these years. Mozart wrote the Paris Symphony in 3 days. yet i'm no Mozart. neither is DIARY OF A PARISIAN CHAMBERMAID the Paris Symphony.
