    I'm working on a book and so far the name I have come up for it is "The ficticous auto-biography of a self-proclaimed time traveller: safety not garunteed"

    Just wondering what everyone thinks of the name.

    If I took out ficticious I would feel like there needs to be another word there.

    You could start by spelling "guaranteed" correctly... :p

    But actually if I were you I would drop that last bit. The first part sounds good by itself.

    ...if it takes me ten minutes to read the title, which it wouldn't, then I have a good chance at not picking it up...

    That's fine, I wouldn't want someone like yourself to read it anyways Ray, you wouldn't understand half the words.

    It's terrible, although with so many words I'm sure you can rearrange them to get a decent title :D
