Subject: Echos (in 10th place)

Herewith is the 10th place winner of this year's Bulwer-Lytton contest, wherein one writes the opening sentence of a bad novel. The contest is named for the Victorian author Edward George Bulwer-Lytton, who is famous -- or is it infamous -- for writing the novel that began "It was a dark and stormy night."

As a scientist, Throckmorton knew that if he were ever to break wind in the echo chamber, he would never hear the end of it.
