Cornfield Meet

Things collide here.

Blue Max, The Deliverator, and A Master

Found this meme over on Martha O’Connor‘s site, and couldn’t resist:

1. Take five books off your bookshelf.
2. Book #1 — first sentence
3. Book #2 — last sentence on page fifty
4. Book #3 — second sentence on page one hundred
5. Book #4 — next to the last sentence on page one hundred fifty
6. Book #5 — final sentence of the book
7. Make the five sentences into a paragraph

To make things more random, I put the five books in a box and grabbed them blind, going with whichever one hit my hand first. The only time it didn’t work was with book four, which didn’t have 150 pages.

OK, here’s mine:

The Deliverator belongs to an elite order, a hallowed subcategory. "Can I tape this? Get away!" Blue Max sent burst-signals at top volume, concentrated pulses of information. There was a Master come unto the earth, born in the holy land of Indiana,

Pieces-parts come from:

Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson
Flyboy Action Figure Comes with Gasmask by Jim Munroe
Classic Stories 2 by Ray Bradbury (it happens to fall within the story All Summer in A Day)
Han Solo at Stars’ End by Brian Daley
Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah by Richard Bach (which yes, does end mid-sentence)
