And Then the Murders Began

The “And then the murders began” game has been going around Facebook recently. That’s where you take a book (although Mom and I have successfully done it with articles, instructions, and catalog copy), read the first sentence and add, “and then the murders began”.

It does little for A Wrinkle in TimePattern Recognition, or The Diamond Age. But check out what happens to Hamlet on the Holodeck:

The birth of a new medium of communication is both exhilarating and frightening…

…and then the murders began

This may be shooting fish in a barrel, given that it’s a book on the birth and rise of cyberdrama, but doesn’t that just sound like a fantastic cyberpunk opening?

Maybe it’s just me. 😛
