    This is one hell of a challenge, a bit like writing your own bio!

    In a post-apocalyptic world, Joe is an astray survivor who unwillingly gets involved into an unlikely treasure hunt.

    In the wild west, a criminal loses his purposes and wanders aimlessly pursued by an obsessed U.S. Marshal and by his own past.

    Benjamin crosses the wastes of hell itself to rescue his girlfriend.

    When a dark sorcerer kidnaps the princess, the fate of the realm falls on the shoulders of a phony prince and a rather stinky peasant.


    How to do for stories that don't have either a major single character nor a major single plot but have a large rooster and the outcome is the product of more story-lines?
    i.e. how would you do a one sentence shot for works like A Song of Ice and Fire or for the Foundation of Asimov?

    I have to manage on my romances which almost by definition are built out of two plots. Figure out the central thrust of the cloud. This is like back cover text, find the plot and hint it, don't start boringly listing characters.

    A Song Of Ice And Fire: "A lot of people in a medieval-like fantasy world kill each other for various reasons at various times."?
