Name Someone An Author Dedicates His Book To

Okay, I’m going to try something a little different in April, firstly because I’ve been getting some very strange questions at work, and secondly because I accidentally caught a few minutes of Family Feud the other day.

I could not believe how bad the contestants were. Who knows, maybe I’d be just as bad put on the spot like that.

In April, I am going to be writing a few posts that either ask questions that I have heard at work on the reference desk, or–questions from Family Feud that I have seen answered very, very poorly.

Today we’re in game show mode, so you’re going to get to be on the spot and show off your creativity.

You have finally finished that book you have been writing for so long, and now it’s time for the dedication. I want you to name someone an author dedicates his book to (or her, of course), and then write it down in the comments quickly, without overthinking. Game show mode activated.

Okay, me first.

To Mick Jagger, who taught me that if you think you’re the coolest person on Earth and nobody can convince you otherwise, I guess you sort of are.

(I typed that in about 10 seconds). All right, your turn.

In 3…2…1…

    To our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ, for showing me that long hair and a straggly beard is an awesome look and has been for over 2000 years.

    To my friend, Jack Bagby who taught me that consciousness manifests reality and that the past is as unwritten as the future.

    To Raul Julia and Jean Claude Van Damme for breathing life into Street Fighter II and the epic battle scene at the conclusion of the film as a reminder of the $6 and 90 minutes that I will never get back in this lifetime…..

      Best comment yet. I was the target audience when SFII came out. And still let down. Guile was much cooler in the game.
