I called his agent and made a lowball offer for his next novel, since he clearly doesn't need the advance.

Since you're lowballing here, I am happy to offer you my next novel.
As you know, rumor has it that I am John Twelve Hawks (see here: http://www.publishersmarketplace.com/members/VeraNazarian/ ), so I too can afford a lowball deal.
My snappy pitch for the novel on offer:
DEOGASM -- a standalone literary fantasy about a world in the thrall of a Deity that experiences a cataclysmic orgasm once a millennium, and which comes as a natural disaster.
So, how about it?
And in case you think I am kidding yah, look here to see all my current projects on offer (scroll toward the bottom of the page):

How about Theorgasm? (Equally shocking to the devout, but less so to the philologist.)
Of course, "Theorgasm" sounds sort of like a kid's name in a fringe cult. ("Theorgasm! Have you seen your sister, Starknuckle-Dancer?")

Wow, how did I miss that. I did a news story about one of our MacArthur award winners here at Stanford and I just skimmed the listing.
It's not as cool as being a super high tech fisherman though. Damn, that's good fodder for a sci-fi story.
