Now this is my kinda book club! [More:]
Pynchon, Amis, Ichiguro, they're so obvious. But these Denver clubbers ... I think they've found the Horny Grail:

Jennifer Giordano wasn't looking for a hero, just a boarder to help make ends meet. But Dar was larger-than-life in every respect, and as her gaze traveled from his broad chest to his muscular arms, time stopped, literally. Her new tenant unsheathed a knife and shattered the face of her chiming grandfather clock. Then he diced up her beeping alarm clock, and Jennifer knew this hulking hunk with a magic mantle, crystal dagger, and pet dragon would never be the ideal housemate.

C'mon, guys let's do this too! Aliens 'n' pirates, clones 'n' crusaders, what's not to like? Who's with me? Everybody ... 1, 2, 3, read!
but inside they promise love in new, fantastic places.

Hmm.

Are the men always stupid, muscled barbarians? I want to read about a spindly-armed geek sweeping a princess off her feet by discussing the Fourier transform.

matildaben, if you write that book, I will buy a copy as a present for my girlfriend.

Margaret Ball, Mathemagics. There's a review here.

Wow. My mom reads about three Regency Romance novels a week -- I should get her a couple of these. You know, for variety.

This isn't real, is it? It's a parody, like this right? Please say that's not real.

I'm scared.

LF, I do believe it's real, if a tad old. (Loved the cracked.com link, btw. Thanks!)
