Phillip Murrell | 582 comments I've seen some discussion on joke blurbs and loglines, but I was curious what people would write as a single sentence to entice publishers/readers of popular books already in existence.

For example, The Hobbit:

A Halfling transforms from sloth to adventurer when a wizard tricks thirteen dwarves into taking him along to rob a dragon.

What else have you got?

I just did one for Ninefox Gambit/Machineries of Empire!

Homicidal space ghost fights injustice with math magic in vacuum-faring moth.

Gary (plaidchuck) | 55 comments How about: A 15 year old takes drugs and rides a giant worm to battle an obese man who wants to steal said drugs.

John Siers | 255 comments How about this one for David Weber's entire Honor Harrington series:

Horatio Hornblower undergoes a sex change and jumps forward 700 years into the future, only to find the British Empire hasn't changed much.
