As a lifelong film buff, I really took to this delightful, weird, hilarious, and very sad novel about the death of video stores and the power of movies. The three main characters are well defined and unpredictable in their actions. This one's a real ...more

Stephen King
“The road to hell is paved with adverbs.”
Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

Joss Whedon
“I write to give myself strength. I write to be the characters that I am not. I write to explore all the things I'm afraid of. ”
Joss Whedon

David Lynch
“There's always fear of the unknown where there's mystery”
David Lynch

Robert McCammon
“The truth of life is that every year we get farther away from the essence that is born within us. We get shouldered with burdens, some of them good, some of them not so good. Things happen to us. Loved ones die. People get in wrecks and get crippled. People lose their way, for one reason or another. It's not hard to do, in this world of crazy mazes. Life itself does its best to take that memory of magic away from us. You don't know its happening until one day you feel you've lost something but you're not sure what it is. It's like smiling at a pretty girl and she calls you 'sir'. It just happens.”
Robert McCammon, Boy's Life
