Dear Reader, "Rare" is a word which can mean either "not burnt to a crisp, and likely to make you ill" or "slightly harder to find." I'm sad to say that this rare edition of the bad beginning fits both of these definitions. In this alleged box, ...
this alleged box, you will find the following:
A woeful story entitled the bad beginning, featuring a disturbing new cover.
An entire chapter of previously unpublished author's notes, which are arguably even more woeful than the tale itself.
An alarming portrait of the heroes and villains of this tale, ready to display in a souvenir frame. You may prefer to display your own, less disturbing, 4" x 6" image.
It is my sad duty to provide these miserable materials to the public, but you are free to look for something easier to find and less likely to upset your stomach.
