“For a terrifying moment I thought he was going to hug me, but fortunately we both remembered we were English just in time. Still, it was a close call.”
Ben Aaronovitch, Moon Over Soho

“ I gave the prescribed Metropolitan Police "first greeting".
"Oi!" I said "What do you think you're doing?”
Ben Aaronovitch, Midnight Riot

“Carved above the lintel were the words SCIENTIA POTESTAS EST. Science points east, I wondered? Science is portentous, yes? Science protests too much. Scientific potatoes rule. Had I stumbled on the lair of dangerous plant geneticists?”
Ben Aaronovitch, Midnight Riot

“You need to read more science fiction. Nobody who reads science fiction comes out with this crap about the end of history”
Iain Banks

“Colonel Otto, do you have a, perhaps, fuller and more detailed account than your preliminary one of why my Imperial Security building is now largely an underground installation? From a technical perspective.”
Lois McMaster Bujold, Captain Vorpatril's Alliance

“My Dad says that being a Londoner has nothing to do with where you're born. He says that there are people who get off a jumbo jet at Heathrow, go through immigration waving any kind of passport, hop on the tube and by the time the train's pulled into Piccadilly Circus they've become a Londoner.”
Ben Aaronovitch, Moon Over Soho

“I am not a fate worse than death, dammit!”
