Introduction and covers.
"It was a dark stormy night."
Wikipedia writes this: " 'It was a dark and stormy night' is an often-mocked and parodied phrase written by English novelist Edward Bulwer-Lytton in the opening sentence of his 1830 novel Paul Clifford. The phrase is considered to represent 'the archetypal example of a florid, melodramatic style of fiction writing,' also known as purple prose."... The phrase had earlier been used by Washington Irving in his 1809 A History of New York."
