|(Rotsler) A letter-substitute patterned after the WO3W and various chain letters. First a multi-carboned read-and-pass-on job, later mimeoed. Burbee coined the expression "short-shot" to define it and separate it from the one-shot, but the imitations it provoked were more usually called letter-substitutes, and were circulated by people whose correspondence ran away from them. Kteic was thought a hoax by many -- it was sent to a very limited and select group, Rotsler explains -- and the cryptic comments of the Kteic Society (:all the people who received KM; "generally the BNFs and the more interesting fans:", says WR) built this mystification up. The title is from the greek kteis, the female equivalent of phallus.|
