Examples of Bad Prose

Admittedly sci-fi related - where you can find all the best examples of.. e..experimental prose. Click here for a random sample - it will cheer you up when you are struggling to polish your own perfect sentences!

My favourite example the last time I looked is below...

'Somehow, the mackerel paté of memory had escaped its wrapper, skipped its kitchen dish, and turned into a flickering silver shoal, darting and twisting in terror against an empty darkness.' ('Gabriel King', The Wild Road, 1997)
