Mr Spock wouldn't do that: Who the fuck is Kitty Glitter?
The author's Wil Wheaton book, which was previously titled Wesley Crusher: Teenage Fuck Machine, hit no 12 in the New York Times bestseller lists and was then pulled when Paramount sent Amazon a cease and desist letter. The author simply retitled the book, Wil Wheaton: Teenage Hump Machine and it's once again available.
I wonder what Paramount will make of , Geordi La Forge: Mother of Darkness.
And despite reviews like, - "i could not get past the first sentence....it's just that awful. and it's not even sci-fi!!!! it is a horrible attempt at erotica. ugh!!" or "Written like the porn books of the 1970's that I found cleaning out an uncle's house absolutely nothing but crude language. Glad that I didn't waste money on this. This is such a piece of trash it needs to be thrown out with the kitty litter." - the books are still selling like hot cakes.
"My background is a mix of all kinds of lies and facts and delusions. I'm like the Joker in "The Dark Knight". So my background depends on like my mood. Today I am Kitty Glitter though and I'm a black female writer from East Orange, NJ. I was actually born in the Queensbridge projects though. Before me, Nas was the biggest phenomena to come out of those projects. Now it's me. As a writer of fiction though the most important thing to know about me is that I am the protege of Patricia Highsmith. She was my mentor, or at least her ghost was. She taught me how to write." The author recently stated in an interview which can be found here-.
The true identity of the author though remains a secret and browsing the books on Amazon and using the Look Inside function is enough to tell you that this isn't particularly well written- it's fact is looks rather stupid but that's not stopping the titles racking up high sales. Is this an indication of our eFuture?
