From the Author
A producer and screenwriter are walking through a forest
They come upon a fast moving river dividing the land formiles
A prostitute waits on the water's edge, afraid to journeyacross
"Climb upon my backand I will carry you across these unsafe waters
The prostitute accepts the producer's invitation and togetherthey cross to the other side
The screenwriter is afraid to make the same journey andwaves for help.
But the producer refuses to come to his aid
Realizing he has no other choice, the screenwriter venturesacross the river
After catching his breath on the other side, thescreenwriter asks the producer --
"Why did you carry theprostitute across the river, but not do the same for me?"
The producer replied without shame or emotion -
"I hoped that my bravedeed would allow me to screw the prostitute without payment.
But there was no needfor me to risk my life again.
I already know that Ican screw you for free."

From the Inside Flap
You should stop right now.
Screenwriting pays off like Prostitution and DealingDrugs -
You end up spending most of your life...
In a small room with the toilet just a fewfeet from the bed.
Only the luckiest, most talented of whores andpushers...
Escape this fate."
