Blurb: a personal aesthetic opinion

Wrote a long, long rant about how though book covers are meant to lure an ignorant reader in, they often fail by promising ridiculously, repellently too much.

Then deleted the said rant, as I’ve written it twice before.

One bit, though, expressed a personal opinion of mine I think I have not aired before, so here you go.

Gawd, “blurb” — even the word sounds like something fetid, fermented and demented slipping out of an abused rectum. Truth in nomenclature! Then again, “blog” sounds like the same thing going back in.

Ah well; have I mentioned there are some words I don’t like?
