Frankenstein, Bulwer-Lytton, and the unsheathed pen

There is nothing that Australians can't do worse than the rest of the world, brags Frankenstein, aka Dylan Welch, in The Sydney Morning Herald.

So began his challenge:

The inaugural Rip-Off-of The Bulwer-Lytton

And Australia did us fair.

Have a giggle, yet . . . with an anxiety that almost amounted to agony, the Good Doctor himself related that . . . (My heart pounds! I would die rather than spoil his telling with my retelling) 'warning' . . . 'continue' . . . 'undaunted' . . . (oh, Doctor!)
