Do horror, Carraka, it adds more character to the book. Though, a little erotica never goes amiss... joking, of course!

I read an article. Adding in erotica or idiotic jokes (fart noises, etc. ) may make get you some more readers, but it'll really alienate people who have been enjoying your work without that stuff. So, not a good idea.

And yes, Shadow, I am aware you were joking

I think Fantasy and Sci-Fi are going to lock heads in this poll. It's like ninjas and pirates all over again...

Probably. Space ninjas would be interesting, though. Even in an astronaut suit, they're still speedy and deadly.
