The eighth volume of The Blah Story by Nigel Tomm was published in 2008. In this volume, Nigel Tomm continues to explore possibilities of the modern English language (as fractal, algorithmic methods or literary phase-shifting). Almost all of The Blah Story, Volume 8  occupies one poem called My Blah Story. The most interesting fact about the poem – this is the longest published poem. The poem consists of 98,728 words; 449,441 characters (with spaces); 23,161 lines. More about it you can find here.

Book statistics: The Blah Story, Volume 8  contains 98,805 words; 449,832 characters (with spaces); 728 pages.

Some trivia about The Blah Story: Volume 19 contains the world’s longest word, Volumes 16, 17, 18 and 19 contains the world’s longest sentence, Volume 13 contains the world’s longest drama.

Here’s an excerpt (the first page of The Blah Story, Volume 8):

Then blah again to blah this time, where she blah blah with arty blah and blah in blah, took blah the simple blah, and wrote some blah blah poetry, supposedly the blah of a blah blah blah on the blah of the blah blah title My Blah Story:

Blah me. Blame you.
Blah you. About you. You blame me. Blah you.

I blah as you or blah by blah,
You know. You blah. You blah it out of blah.
Blah blah. Blah blah.

Blah blah, a blah,
Blah in blah.
Discovers blah and circles
Into blah. ‘My eyes,’ I scream.

And blah. There is. A blah blah blah.
On other blah. I see a blah.
Too blah, too blah blah blah.
As everything is blah.
Except my blah.

She blah.
I blah. I cannot blah.
‘Stop blah,’ he blah
And something changes,
Snaps into blah.
Back into blah. I lock the blah.

In locked blah,
Blah locked blah.
Forms changing other blah.
My blah. It blah blah sharply.
Blah themselves in empty busses
Phones are blah. They are.
Too fixed. Too blah.

The seventh volume of The Blah Story by Nigel Tomm was published in 2008. In The Blah Story, Volume 7 Nigel Tomm continues to explore the possibilities of fractal and algorithmic literature (which was used in volume 5 and volume 6). I think the best sentence which describes volume 7 is:  “The Blah Story is based mostly in steady pulse, stasis and slow transformation, and often reiteration of phrases or other textual units such as paragraphs, sentences, and words (with over usage of the word blah).”

Book statistics: The Blah Story, Volume 7 contains 407,761 words; 1,994,663 characters(with spaces); 732 pages.

The third volume of The Blah Story by Nigel Tomm was published in 2007. The Blah Story, Volume 3 continues The Blah Story, Volume 2, but in the third volume the body of the text (a carcass) has more structure and sometimes it feels that the text is evolving by itself.

Book statistics: The Blah Story, Volume 3 contains 430,804 words; 2,099,119 characters(with spaces); 732 pages.

    It was a Monday evening. We were standing and watching some blah blah things. They were changing in blah blah blah eyes as blah blah blah. The same old blah blah blah about blah blah blah. She touched the blah blah of her blah blah case, and blah blah that the blah blah blah and a story from blah blah blal blah were blah handy. The blah blah man was blah blah standing up with blah his blah to blah, putting his blah in the blah. She would blah the blah blah blah with his blah blah voice, she blah, and blah the blah blah blah with her blah. She was blah blah blah of humility, and blah a blah at blah. Nevertheless, it is a blah blah blah that blah are cruel. She blah half a blah of her blah, then blah saw blah blah blah the blah to blah the blah blah by blah of the blah blah test of blah blah blah. She would blah blah blah to blah him her blah. Blah blah but blah do blah blah men blah the blah? She blah to blah what he blah blah reading the blah blah blah.
    ‘Whose blah was it?’
    ‘People named blah blah blah.’
    ‘Blah blah you stay blah blah? Meet blah blah blah blah?’
    ‘No.’
    ‘Blah blah blah blah really?’ Blah blah voice blah in blah blah blah.
    ‘Not a blah blah blah. Blah she blah blah out four blah blah ago in blah blah blah city.’
    ‘Blah blah blah?’
    ‘Yes,’ answered blah blah blah with some blah blah, ‘I blah blah think that blah the blah thing blah blah about blah. She blah blah well, someday the blah blah blah there.’
    ‘Not blah blah too blah to blah you blah a blah.’
    ‘Blah enough. Blah blah blah by blah blah.’
    ‘Oh, blah, you’re blah blah blah. What blah blah blah you blah by blah blah blah?’
    ‘Well, blah blah blah blah her blah blah blah exactly, blah blah except to blah that blah blah blah gorgeous. Blah was blah blah alive. She blah blah was blah blah blah.’
    ‘What!’
    ‘It blah blah blah a sort of blah blah blah. She blah blah blah a blah blah blah blah she always blah blah blah at blah blah because she blah to blah around so blah in one blah.’

    Blah was blah to get very blah of blah by her blah on the blah, and of having blah blah to do but blah blah blah. Once or twice she blah blah had blah into the blah her blah was reading, but it had no blah blah blah or blah in it, ‘and what is the blah blah blah of a blah,’ she thought ‘without blah blah or blah blah blah?’
    ‘What’s the blah, blah?’ she said without blah blah blah from a blah she was blah.
    ‘Well, blah blah blah, that I blah.’
    ‘Why this blah new blah in a blah—I mean the new blah!  He blah blah us to blah the blah blah on Tuesday blah.’
    ‘O, but there is,’ she blah as blah blah blah.
    So she was blah in her blah blah (as well as blah could, for the blah blah blah her blah very blah blah and blah), whether the blah of blah a blah blah would be blah blah blah of blah and blah, when blah blah blah a blah blah by her.
    ‘I blah blah blah, it’s so blah blah to blah its blah.’
    ‘Well, blah blah blah blah the day blah blah we blah blah blah the blah last blah, and blah blah I blah blah blah to sell it blah blah blah.’
    The blah blah blah abruptly. Blah blah in blah, blah blah, blah blah. Blah blah blah blah of blah blah blah blah, blah blah as blah blah blah, blah blah, blah blah each other blah blah blah blah of some blah blah and blah blah blah moments blah blah as blah blah blah. Blah blah liked blah blah blah how blah blah one blah blah evening they blah blah blah from blah blah in blah of blah blah happiness. They blah blah blah to blah it, blah, blah in blah blah that blah blah had been blah blah blah than blah blah blah she blah blah blah blah. Love, it blah blah blah, blah blah a blah of the blah blah blah blah around blah blah blah blah it blah blah. Blah blah was no blah, no blah blah blah. She blah blah blah in blah to blah blah blah blah and blah, no blah blah blah blah except blah blah blah to blah, no one blah blah blah, without blah blah blah of blah happiness blah blah blah and blah blah blah.
    ‘What is blah blah?’ she blah blah blah, blah to blah blah one of the blah blah blah.
    ‘Blah blah my blah blah blah blah,’ blah answered blah blah blah. ‘I blah blah to blah it.’
    ‘Blah  you blah blah to blah it? Blah blah they blah blah blah?’
