" That's good, thanks. "
The Martian Child by David Gerrold
"David Gerrold calls his book a novel. I would like to suggest that he wrote a memoir instead. He definitely touched me. I know this kid, his martian child. I know this kid well. I spent 16 years of my life, more actually when adding volunteer work..." Read more of this review »

“I'm all in favor of keeping dangerous weapons out of the hands of fools. Let's start with typewriters.”
David Gerrold, A Matter For Men

“To say that a writer's hold on reality is tenuous is an understatement-it's like saying the Titanic had a rough crossing. Writer's build their own realities, move into them and occasionally send letters home. The only difference between a writer and a crazy person is that a writer gets paid for it.”
David Gerrold

“The secret of the universe is this: The universe doesn't care. That part of the job is yours.”
David Gerrold
