“... you cannot shake hands with the Devil and not get sulphur on your sleeve.”
Nancy A. Collins

“Sleep: the stepchild of Death.”
Nancy A. Collins, In the Blood

“She knew that the only love her demon was capable of was self-destructive, cruel, vampiric, parasitic, and all the other words her best friends had used to describe Jerry, Alec, Christian, Matt, and the others whose names, faces, and genitalia had now blurred together in her memories. They were men incapable of love yet able to inspire suicide threats.”
Nancy A. Collins, Demonlover
