Welcome, Jac.

What's the novel? And can you (or somebody) parse it? I sure can't...

Ha!Fun. The tool in that link only takes 28 letters.
So I cut off the plural from 'fishes'.
Then it comes up with a crazy 1000 outcomes.
All complete nonsense. So how could adding the missing e and s put any sense into this?
