When an author has to use obscenities in her book title to get readers' attention, one really has to question how good or compelling the stories are going to be.

My guess would be, not to expect too much.

My response:

The two anthologies, titled UNCAGE ME and EXPLETIVE DELETED, contain what I consider to be extremely well written stories. If you made your judgement without having read any of them then I would agree that these books are not for you.

My goodness, people will go out of their way to be unkind sometimes.

My word verification is "multwit" which I take to be related to "multi-wit" rather than "mull twit".
