Thog's Masterclass. Provocative Clothing Dept. '... a young lady's garment, with a bustle that rustled and, as Billie walked, made passes at the air behind her as if it had its own appetites and interests.' (Elizabeth Knox, Billie's Kiss, 2002) [PB]

Neat Tricks. 'Rader jumped up, then caught himself in the almost absent gravity.' (William Rotsler, The Far Frontier, 1980) [BA] 'Felicity sits up so quickly I can still feel the warmth of her next to me, trailing behind her by seconds.' (Libba Bray, A Great and Terrible Beauty, 2003) [PB]

Something Fishy Dept. 'His feet, in black socks, were long and limp as dead salmon.' (Jack Vance, 'Parapsyche', August 1958 Amazing) [BA]

Dept of Alpine Allure. 'Time had refined her so that now, in her forties, she had the spare beauty of a mountaintop blown clean of snow.' (Julia Spencer-Fleming, In the Bleak Midwinter, 2002) [PB]

Don't Try This At Home. 'Russ cleared his throat. Officer Durkee fell in.' (Ibid)
