5/5* for "You Go Where It Takes You". Perfect magic realism; the supernatural element isn't the whole story. It gives the characters something to react to and think about, but it's just a moment in Toni's life. Who she is, and what she does next, mak...more

Harlan Ellison
“You are not entitled to your opinion. You are entitled to your informed opinion. No one is entitled to be ignorant.”
Harlan Ellison

Etgar Keret
“He misses the feeling of creating something out of something. That’s right — something out of something. Because something out of nothing is when you make something up out of thin air, in which case it has no value. Anybody can do that. But something out of something means it was really there the whole time, inside you, and you discover it as part of something new, that’s never happened before.”
Etgar Keret, Suddenly, a Knock on the Door

John Scalzi
“Here's a quick rule of thumb: Don't annoy science fiction writers. These are people who destroy entire planets before lunch. Think of what they'll do to you.”
