I'm a librarian who loves anime, manga, and reading a wide variety of genres.
I have a feeling this first story, "The Unstrung Harp," would be perfect for those of you who are writers. Mr. Earbrass is working on a novel called The Unstrung Harp:
"Mr Earbrass has been rashly skimming through the early chapters, which he has not looked at for months, and now see TUH for what it is. Dreadful, dreadful, DREADFUL. He must be mad to go on enduring the unexquisite agony of writing when it all turns out drivel. Mad. Why didn't he become a spy? How does one become one? He will burn the MS. Why is there no fire? Why aren't there the makings of one? How did he get in the unused room on the third floor?"
