I’m glad not every popular book spawns a sequel.

Some books are without equal … or sequels.


I’m glad to live in a world without:

Vegetable Farm


Pitcher in the Rye


Off the Road

The Executioner’s Song (extended remix)

In Warm Blood

Two Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest

Oliver Shout

The Adventures of Tom Seenyer (possibly Tom Seeyer as a prequel)

To Kill a Bunch of Mockingbirds

The Deaf Assassin

Johnny Got His Bigger Gun

Moby Harry  (possibly Moby Tom as a prequel)

The Sun Also Sets

Humble and Accepting

The Razor’s Twin Edge

Atlas Gets Two For Flinching

The Last of the Mohicans: The Next Day

Stranger in a Strangerland


note: who was this Ernest Heming anyway?

double note: yes I know there was more than one Tom Sawyer book, but it was such an easy one!


notes to myself #137

Graham Greene the author is dead. Don’t keep looking for more books by him.
Graham Greene the actor is still alive … I don’t know if he’s written any good books though.

  1. I would really love to see the movie they made of the Horse Shouter. He shouts at the horse, the horse runs away. The movie probably wouldn’t go for very long, unless the horse eventually came back

  2. Oliver Shout: I like that one. Very tangental. I sometimes use alternative titles as funny asides in my books. I particularly enjoyed creating Flasher inthe Hay and How Moist was my Crevice. We think alike.

  3. My god! I thought the picture was funny and then I got to the list. Ha! “Vegetable Farm” — not much dialogue in that one I bet. Another short movie.

  4. I love when you do your thing….. lol 🙂

  5. What about the fine novel, “Humility and Tolerance”?

  6. “You Are The Cheese” — ha ha ha ha! I don’t know if Graham Greene the actor has written anything but he was good in “Thunderheart” …

  7. I agree with Doraz…when you do your cheeseness it is like no other. I learned more stuff in First Grade, Not being unbearably heavy…love it.

  8. Thanks for all the comments.

    Tony: I think there are a lot of horse shouters at the racetrack. hee hee!

    Tooty Nolan:great minds think alike … fools seldom differ” … or something like that.

    Donald Diddams: I wonder what the bad vegetable would be in “Vegetable Farm” … probably asparagus … if I was writing it. hee hee!

    Doraz: thanks!

    S. Le: I thought I had that one covered with “Humble and Accepting“.

    Dennis the Vizsla: I always liked him in the movie “Maverick“.
    oh! did I just say that?

    w1kkp: thanks!

  9. Wow! Two names for the same novel. I suppose one could be the mini-series.
