No Shit, There I Was Now Funding On Kickstarter

Is there a better phrase to start a story than "No Shit, There I Was..."?

If you hear someone start with that phrase, you know it's going to be worth listening carefully. That's how all the craziest - and most interesting - stories start.

And then we turned a bunch of speculative fiction authors loose on that phrase.

I mean, these stories - whew. Science fiction. Fantasy. Humor. Even horror. What they came up with is kind of hard to believe.

But no shit, there we were.
