Parodies 'r' me

Paul DiFi here!

Hanging out with Lucius Shepard this weekend and hearing him read aloud from a new story reminded me of the one time I tried to write like Lucius--for one paragraph only!

My parody of Lucius and nine other writers--including myself!--originally ran at LOCUS ONLINE, where they're still archived.

But the archived version lacks the fake author bylines. So here are the ten authors being parodied, in order of appearance.
