  1. Um, so if you don’t live alone you’re going to end up missing big chunks of story?

    Well, at least, I *hope* you end up missing them….

    Interesting gimmick, though I’m surprised they didn’t use it to print “Dark Water”.

    …sometimes, the jokes write themselves.

    Yeah, you’d sorta have to have multiple copies if you expect to have guests.

    On the other hand, it does sorta address those of us who bring in reading material. On the other other hand, it’s sorta hard to read more than a few paragraphs at a time; a sequence of short stories (or short-shorts)  might have been a better idea.

    Horror ain’t my thing. At least, not what passes for horror these days;  I’ve liked some older work. So if I bought this, it would be as a comment upon the genre.

  4. I bought some, scared the shit right out of me.

    “Ring”, “Drop” and “Spiral”?

    Fnar, fnar.

      Kind of reminds me of the kids games you could be playing, instead:  Concentration, Aggravation, Hang On Harvey and Ker-Plunk!

    That’s a Swiping Story!

    I’m waiting for the double-ply version of “Atlas Shrugged”.

    You forgot “Loop”, the final book in the “Ring” trilogy (and for my money, the best one).  And shouldn’t it be ‘Author of “Ring” and “Spiral”‘ instead of ‘writer for’?

    Nitpicking: off.

    This excites me to no end. I’ll buy a roll or two.

    Showed this to my gf who works in a library. She says they won’t order this, their toilets are enough of a horror story by themselves.

    Well they certainly managed to do what no other writers in the industry have been able to do. Stop the secondhand market dead in its tracks. 

    I doubt, no, I pray I never run across used copies of these.

    Finally I can replace my Robert Heinlien paperbacks with something that doesn’t just spread the “stuff” around so much…

    Free toilet paper with ads. Maybe keep our stalls properly stocked.

  13. wilmcdaniel says:

    Give me ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ on TP and I’m in. 

  14. Being somewhat of a schoolboy at heart, my headline for this story would have been more along the lines of:

    “Toilet Paper Emblazoned with the Nightmare of the Ring.”

  15. Beanolini says:

    Is it also printed on the other side of the paper for the 30-40% who prefer the ‘under’ orientation?
