The Kraken Wakes John Wyndham

It’s been a while since we’ve had any levity on the blog, and since today is the end of the first full working week of the year, I think we all deserve a moment of light-heartedness to celebrate.

This is a game we learned about at the Jersey Eastercon in 2002, whereby you take the title and author of a book and run them together to make a sentence, thus: John Wyndham‘s The Kraken Wakes becomes ‘The kraken wakes John Wyndham’.

Here are a few of our favourites:

I have no mouth and I must scream ‘Harlan Ellison!’
Tales of the unexpected Roald Dahl
Spin Robert Charles Wilson
Land of the headless Adam Roberts
Where late the sweet birds sang ‘Kate Wilhelm’
Camouflage Joe Haldeman
The sheep look up John Brunner


Well, it amuses us.
