Wycliffe A. Hill took the work out of writing when he unveiled his Plot Robot!(TM) It takes a smart person to play the fool - and an even smarter person to build the story of the fool! But Comedy challenges more authors than any other genre. What may seem hilarious to an author, in the solitude of their study, might be unfunny and offensive to audiences.* After developing The Plot Genie(TM), inventor and author Wycliffe Hill undertook the serious task of writing comedy. His ingeneous Plot Robot guides authors in the proper direction, and sends readers into hysterics.* Bold Venture Press, a small-press imprint specializing in classic pulp fiction and new tales of suspense, is proud to present this classic "writer's friend." Check out other "Plot Genie" supplements from Bold Venture Press. * Results may vary.

About Wycliffe a Hill

Wycliffe A. Hill sold two silent film screenplays when the great director Cecil B. DeMille rejected one of his submissions. ..".Although an interesting narrative," DeMille wrote, "it contains no dramatic plot." Apparently, Hill was inspired to created THE PLOT GENIE, a book containing lists of plot elements, characters, and settings. A cardboard spinner wheel -- "The Plot Robot" accompanied each copy. Plot Genie and its subsequent supplements flourished during the Depression, when newsstands were filled with pulp magazines, and every magazine sported at least one short story. Hill spent most of his professional career as a story consultant and gave lectures and workshops on plot construction.
