M.K. Hobson recently decided to follow a time-honored authorial tradition and become a bitter recluse. She swore off all social media and left her website to go to seed. At the moment, she exists only as a voice on short fiction podcasts such as Podcastle and Cast of Wonders. She leavens the tedium of her vastly expanded free time with misanthropy, paranoia, and weight lifting.

_88539139_eno_akhnaten_s-o290216_photo-richardhubertsmith-7661In a conversation with a co-worker the other day, it was suggested that I am a Philip Glass groupie. (It was also suggested that this was “cute”, a statement which rankles, honestly.) But the facts are these: I am currently at the Portland International Airport, drinking a mediocre Rogue Stout while I wait to board a flight to Los Angeles, where I will spend the night at a somewhat-sketch Airbn...

“Credomancy may seek to exploit the human desire for a tidy narrative where an unblemished romantic hero vanquishes all obstacles, but such ideals have very little to with reality. Reality requites pragmatism and compromise. Men fail. Women fail. There are no heroes, only human beings who somehow find the strength to behave heroically, no matter how many times they have been unable to do so in the past. If you understand that, Miss Edwards - if you truly and deeply understand that, then you will understand the most powerful thing anyone with a heart can understand.”
“And what’s that?” Emily said softly.

“That love is not enough. But it’s a start.”
M.K. Hobson, The Hidden Goddess

“There is an old Russian saying. 'A serpent changes his skin, not his fangs.”
M.K. Hobson, The Native Star

“Leave it to a New Yorker to put a bunch of trees in one place and call it wonderful.”
M.K. Hobson

“Substitute 'damn' every time you're inclined to write 'very;' your editor will delete it and the writing will be just as it should be.”
Mark Twain

“The difference between the almost right word and the right word is really a large matter. ’tis the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning.”
Mark Twain, The Wit and Wisdom of Mark Twain

“Words are but the vague shadows of the volumes we mean.  Little audible links, they are, chaining together great inaudible feelings and purposes.”
Theodore Dreiser

“People in general attach too much importance to words. They are under the illusion that talking effects great results. As a matter of fact, words are, as a rule, the shallowest portion of all the argument. They but dimly represent the great surging feelings and desires which lie behind. When the distraction of the tongue is removed, the heart listens.”
Theodore Dreiser, Sister Carrie

“Art is the stored honey of the human soul.”
Theodore Dreiser
