It’s the scheduled monthly meeting of the Pendon Writers Circle tonight, but as it’s nearly Christmas attendance is down a bit.  And those who do manage to get to chairman Arnold’s house are down a bit, too:  the dreaded writer’s block.  They each reveal their progress (or rather, embarrassing lack of it) in their chosen literary genres.  As a desperate measure Arnold proposes they collaborate on a story which combines all their styles.  That’s the cue for thunder and lightning and a crazy intertwining of Victorian melodrama, 1920’s who-dunnit and science fiction.  Central to this vortex of quick-change and highly improbable plotting is Arnold’s elderly (unseen) mother:  has she been murdered or abducted by aliens?  You have to watch IMPROBABLE FICTIONto find out!
