Back in high school I made many attempts to get published as a science fiction writer. I have a large stack of manuscripts (written with a manual typewriter) and rejection slips to this day.
After getting rejected by all the reputable magazines, I would market my manuscripts further down the hierarchy. Eventually, I got a couple works published in Antithesis. The sample below is the beginning of a rather long spoof of the Star Wars movies. LOTs of puns!
Yes, the writing is rough, but I still think it was better than what Mel Brooks came up with. (Admittedly, an extremely low standard of excellence...)
(By the way, I did not draw or approve of the artwork...)
