** "Nerd Porn Auteur" is also included in a poetry collection, titled ''[[https://www.amazon.com/Importance-Being-Ernest-Cline-ebook/dp/B00NMXR16I/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8 The Importance of Being Ernest]]''. ([[IThoughtItMeant No, not]] [[Theatre/TheImportanceOfBeingEarnest that one]].) All of it fails at being poetry and is more like blog posts or short stories with random line breaks inserted, and range in subject matter from the ''Series/{{Airwolf}}'' TV show to having Nostradamus as a roommate to cunnilingus (yes, really). None are great, but "Nerd Porn Auteur" is definitely the worst of the lot.

* '''''500 Manga Creatures''''' by Yishan Li might have been a decent clipart/how to draw book...if you like blatantly plagiarized ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' and ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' artwork. [[https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/51NIIZ4xjnL.jpg Just by looking at the cover]], you can see what are clearly supposed to be [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Weedle, Dragonair, Hoothoot, Oddish, Latias,]] [[Franchise/{{Digimon}} Angewomon, Mummymon and Cherrymon]], as well as (for some reason) [[Franchise/SailorMoon Artemis]]. [[https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0061650501/ref=pd_sim_14_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=PCMT9FGZ1WA6PXB70Q28 Pretty much all of the reviews for it on Amazon]] point out how a good 90% of the artwork is blatantly ripped off from official Pokemon art.

* '''''Diary of a Lonely Demon''''', written by Jon David, is a classic example of what happens when a MarySue [[JustForFun/XMeetsY meets]] [[UnfortunateImplications Misogyny]]. In a nutshell, the story revolves around one Jasper Davis, a [[{{Wangst}} wangsty]] self-insert that blames everything that's wrong with his life on ''[[StrawCharacter eeevil women]]''. Jasper then runs into Morgalla Smythe, a demon girl that [[InsaneTrollLogic apparently turned Christian thanks to her new-found boyfriend.]] All of a sudden, [[ClicheStorm demons show up and it's up to Jasper and Morgalla to stop them.]] Ultimately an AuthorTract on how women are wrong and [[StrawMisogynist how Jon is right]], the author sets up a plethora of {{flat character}}s, adds a dash of blatant racism, sexism and other offenses, and caps it all off with a metric shit ton of grammatical errors and plot holes. Include the fact that many passages are often copied from [[Literature/TheHobbit other]] [[Film/{{Avatar}} works]], and that the author [[SmallNameBigEgo suffers from an inability to take constructive criticism properly]], and the book just keeps getting worse.

Added DiffLines:

* While the ''Franchise/DanganRonpa'' fandom may [[BrokenBase divide on practically every matter]], practically everyone agrees that '''''LightNovel/DanganRonpaTogami''''', a three-part Light Novel series, is utter garbage. To describe the story is rather pointless, as whatever narrative is present is filtered through a massive RandomEventsPlot that takes so many {{Shocking Swerve}}s to become incomprehensible. The books are full of plot holes and nonsensical developments, some of them plot breaking (a good example is when two characters are able to somehow drive to the Czech Republic from ''Hokkaido''). There are LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters, with the characters from the main series being heavily OOC, and the original ones being extremely one-note and unlikable (the intended TragicVillain goes way too far over the MoralEventHorizon to be sympathetic, and the primary protagonist is probably meant to be TheWoobie but instead comes off as a sycophantic AuthorAvatar). The story is filled with tons of references to literature and obscure history, most of which interrupt the story and make it come off as intensely pretentious, especially the story interrupts itself ''mid-climax'' to [[SmallNameBigEgo brag about how good the author is]]. Oh, and if you came in wanting to read about Byakuya Togami, you don't even get ''that'', as he spends the vast majority of the story OutOfFocus.

* '''''To Train Up A Child''''', published in 1994, is a parent's guide based on the controversial "Pearl Method" taught by pastor Michael Pearl. Called "a Child abuse manual" by some, this book, among other things, says beating your kids is ok, recommends [[KickTheDog pulling a newborn's hair if they bite you]], lists the best places and what to hit your kids with to avoid leaving bruises, setting a trap for your child and then punishing them for falling for it, and claims [[InsaneTrollLogic if you don't do these things you don't really love your kids]]. The book was lambasted for its heavy religious meddling, and the method has been [[http://www.christianitytoday.com/women/2011/october/when-child-discipline-becomes-abuse.html proven to have caused child deaths]].
