I don't think Hal Johnson is a very unusual sort of a guy. He's just -- well, the average American citizen and family man, the kind that are the backbone of the nation. I admire him and like him. I like his attitude. Until, that is, he gets behind the wheel of an automobile. At that point he changes. He changes from a careful, considerate citizen—to a menace.

–"Driven to Kill," 1948 driver's safety film.

If someone drove a dump truck full of money up to my house...well, I'm not made of stone.

On one hand, I think the book answers all the questions and wraps everything up, so there's no need for a sequel. But on the other hand, the world is a wide world, and there are many places in it to have adventures, and I could see books in which people might meet the Rosicrucians or seek the nagbu-thorn and never talk about lycanthropes at all.

Although I guess that's the world most books take place in?(less)

Life with/against the Circus


I joined the circus sort of,

Ran away and joined the day we

Tamed, beneath the overpass, menageries of sarin gas,

The bearded lady, the leopards, and the kiwi.


That morning, some drunk ape took my ticket.

I said I should be comped because I

Helped at the concession stand. He tore the ticket from my hand

Anyway. He wasn’t going to let me get away with a lie right at the st...

“A shameful fact about humanity is that some people can be so ugly that no one will be friends with them. It is shameful that humans can be so cruel, and it is shameful that humans can be so ugly.”
