Years ago I read a parody of Whitman (mostly a pastiche of A Song of Joys, IIRC) which I have largely forgotten, except for a single line: playing on WW's tendency to exhortations and his supreme self-regard, it was along the lines of "Lumberjack, fell your mighty tree! But not until I, Walt Whitman, am safely out of the way." Googling this fragment, parts of it, and variants of it avails me naught. Anyone else recall this?
I recently ran across this text on a Virgil-centered site: The Secret History of Virgil by Alexander Neckam said to be based on a History by Gaius Asinius Pollio From a Manuscript in Old Royal Library in the British Museum Edited and Translated By Joannes Opsopoeus Brettanus (c) 1996. Is this an actual 12th-13th c. text based on an actual 1st c. BCE source, or a modern-day confection of the "found manuscript" variety? The copyright, of course, is odd, but I thought it might've been claimed by the site hosting the text. There was a brief discussion of it here, but no conclusions were drawn. Thanks.
What are the best non-Doyle Sherlock Holmes stories, collections, and novels?
I'm in the process of formulating a story that would twist a known, beloved children's franchise setting into a violent noir. The eventual goal would be to self-publish an ebook for a few bucks on Amazon, but I'm concerned that the subject matter would get the book pulled due to copyright matters. How does Amazon handle parody and pastiche? [more inside]
