Synopsis

The Slightly Dangerous Book for Wimps Acts of Derring Do for the Faint-Hearted by Captain H. Faversham

The Slightly Dangerous Book For Wimps is a parody for our times, when safety regulations and scare stories are reducing us all to quivering wrecks. This lily-livered manual combines laugh-out loud observations on the things that scare us; a deadpan guide to negotiating the inherent dangers of everyday tasks when uncoordinated; plus slightly dangerous games and adventures for a world where the default emotion is abject terror. For the yellow-bellied and jelly-spined among you, the ever-so-slightly risky life skills include crossing the road; shaving without sharpness, swallowing big food; safety conkers; vertigo treehouses; talking to girls; stationary go-karts; walking into a room; living without mother; and flossing. The time has come to wrestle with your inner wimp.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
