I'm not the Robin Johnson who wrote Alice in Wonderland.
I've also written, as far as I know, the only playable Inform 7 meta-sonnet:
Will's Study is a room. The desk is here.
A hastily handwritten note is on it.
Description is "It's from your friend Shakespeare:
'I've gone to lunch. You'll have to write the sonnet.'"
Composing is an action applying to nothing.
The quill is a thing that is in the study.
Understand "write sonnet" as composing.
Description of the quill is "Old and cruddy".
Instead of composing when the player
does not have the quill, say "You've no quill."
Instead of composing, say "And... done. 'Heya',
says Will, returning. You say, 'Hello, Will!'
Says Shakespeare, 'Thank you for the time you've taken!
You really are a pal, Sir Francis Bacon.'"

|Aunts and Butlers, by Robin Johnson (2006)|
It's 1920, you're a minor aristocrat fallen on hard times, and your wretched Aunt Cedilla is on the warpath. A Wodehousean comedy of manners, manors, mysterious butlers and unfriendly poodles.
