He read the first chapter of the book and then threw it away, saying "this book is just too insane.

And that man was Abdul Alhazred.

Does Clare have a full name? I might have missed it in one of the updates.

Both Rodney and the narrator call her Clare, but in the last chapter the FBI "captain" calls her miss Clare.

So is her name Clare Clare? Does everyone call her by her last name?
Or is she such an empty shell of a character that Miranda Leek didn't bother giving her a last name?

Is... is that roller coaster wearing fishnets?

Is this a drawing of the interior of a roller coaster burlesque house?

You basically got most of what's wrong with Merrylegs.

1. The Skull is less cone-shaped then a horse's skull, and the slope at the top of the nose is not steep enough.

2. The nostrils are too big, and her eyes are pointing forward instead of to the side.

3. The ears are pointing back instead of forward or to the side, but that might just be Leek trying to convey fast movement.

4. The shoulders are not big enough compared to the forearms, and the knees look painfully swollen.


I don't know why she wouldn't use a photo reference for this, it's not like image reference for horses is hard to come by. I mean she did a semi-alright job on the human, aside from the placement of the features on the head and the spaghetti hair.

e: 5. Another thing I just noticed is that the arms don't connect properly to the torso.

I tried my hand at a cover.

Is that a toilet plunger?

It's the base of my desk lamp. I didn't realize it looked like a plunger while I was painting it but now that you mention it it really does look like a plunger.

"Everything that is or ever was a part of any amusement park, theme park, carnival, circus, or world, state, or county fair has a place here."


I so hope this includes Triremes from the roman Coliseum, and dragons from the Chinese circus (or would it be just dragon skins in this case?)

Also well done on making the "Park Beyond" imaginative.

I was reading another book today, and when I came upon the word "sigh" I was reminded of this travesty of a book and had to put it down and take a break. The writing in Twisted is so bad that it ruins the good writing in other books. It has practically murdered an English word for me.

Seriously, looking at that image I can totally picture him, anthro-rollercoaster aside, in some trailer park in Tennessee.

I usually don't agree with people who try to pseudo-psychology an authour based on his/her writings, but I'm getting the awful feeling that Railrunner's characterization is modeled after Miranda's own father, or at least someone she knows and admires. Hopefully I'm not right about that.

e:I'm not implying Miranda Leek grew up in a trailer park.
