Going nuts trying to remember a Sci-fi title. Probably 1970s One word sounding like Squonk, Quink or Splonk but none of those.
I was sure it was Squonk but that is a different thing so not it. One of those "tip of the tongue" things :unsure:
 
OK.... Spock??

Do you have any details on the plot so we have something to look for?

No I'm just looking for a title that I vaguely recall , I never read it.
So this isn't the usual request, but still the most appropriate forum.
 
Using advanced search at isfdb.org I have come up with these possibilities
I searched for English NOVEL types with titles ending in 'onk' or 'ink' with silly names (none of the 'ink' results were silly enough ;) )

Kronk (1971)

Thwonk (1995)
 
Found!
Well done sir! It was indeed Edmund Cooper's "Kronk"

I once found a magazine called Spank under a sofa in my university digs. I think it belonged to my flatmate, although he said he had never seen it before. I dont think it was sf.
Famous for it's complex plot lines involving sloppy homework no doubt.

Those "magazine elfs" leave strange magazines in the strangest places!!
 
I read a lot of Edmund Cooper’s work in the eighties. I don’t think I’ve read Kronk, though.

I just bought a good copy of Kronk. Quite expensive at £9 so we will see. I Enjoyed Transit by Cooper so I'm optimistic.
 
The Cloudwalker and A Far Sunset we’re my favourite of his.
 
I've read most of his work but this one passed me by somehow.
