Nonsense, I Say.
What would you call a fantasy or science fiction cookbook? You must understand that I am not in a particularly sane or sensible mood just now, so if you’re interested in a serious post, this blog is not your best choice today. However, if you’re feeling less-than-profound, as I am today… what would you entitle a cookbook filled with recipes based on your favourite SF or fantasy stories?
I mean, for a cookbook based on the hard-boiled detective novels of John D. MacDonald, there is no possible title but The Dreadful Lemon Pie. For a Regency romance-themed cookbook, you want April Ladyfingers. For recipes based on cosy British mysteries, there’s Five Red Pickled Herrings, maybe, or Passage to Frankfurters. So what about science fiction? What about fantasy?
Surely you have better ideas than I do. Must we be content with Lord of the Rings of Calamari, or Time Enough for Lunch? No, I say, You can do better, even in a silly mood. Go ahead. Make my soup — I mean, my day.
