It's usually enough to get the truck out of the mud. If that doesn't work, I pick up another book and read until another idea hits me and my fingers start to burn. (less)

Dark Screams: Volume One

Dark Screams: Volume One by Brian James Freeman


My rating: 4 of 5 stars


As a huge fan of Stephen King’s Creepshow, I was thrilled to see the long-lost short story “Weeds” in the table of contents for Dark Screams: Volume One. I knew it as “The Lonsesome Death of Jordy Verrill,” but it has even more barbs and thorns in prose form (as well as being a little bit less campy).


It’s a good, tone-sett...

Terry Pratchett
“Give a man a fire and he's warm for a day, but set fire to him and he's warm for the rest of his life.”
Terry Pratchett, Jingo

Ernest Hemingway
“The first draft of anything is shit.”
Ernest Hemingway

“Just because I'm a librarian doesn't mean I'm at all tame.”
James Turner, Rex Libris, Volume I: I, Librarian

Annie Proulx
“Was love then like a bag of assorted sweets passed around from which one might choose more than once? Some might sting the tongue, some invoke night perfume. Some had centers as bitter as gall, some blended honey and poison, some were quickly swallowed. And among the common bull's-eyes and peppermints a few rare ones; one or two with deadly needles at the heart, another that brought clam and gentle pleasure. Were his fingers closing on that one?”
Annie Proulx, The Shipping News
