Speaking from Among the Bones by Alan Bradley
"I do like this series — and tear through the books — when I get round to reading it, but I don’t particularly feel a pressure to keep up. There’s just something too precious about Flavia, and indeed the whole portrayal of idyllic British country l..." Read more of this review »

Terry made a comment on his review of The Worm Ouroboros

Alexandre Dumas
“And he at once determined on going to find Gilbert, who was residing at Versailles, but who, without having revisited the queen after the journey of the king to Paris, had become the right hand of Necker, who had been reappointed minister, and was endeavoring to organize prosperity by generalizing poverty.”
Alexandre Dumas, Ange Pitou

Guy Endore
“A real politician, and these were real politicians, never betrays his country to an outsider. He betrays it to himself. He is the enemy within.”
Guy Endore, The Werewolf of Paris

Russell Hoban
“Ready to cry ready to dy ready for any thing is how I come to it now. In fear and tremmering only not running a way. In emtyness and ready to be fult. Not to lern no body nothing I cant even lern my oan self all I can do is try not to get in front of whats coming. Jus try to keap out of the way of it.”
Russell Hoban, Riddley Walker

Robertson Davies
“The house stank; a stench all its own pervaded every corner. It was a threnody in the key of Cat minor, with a ground-bass of Old Dog, and modulations of old people, waning lives, and relinquished hopes.”
Robertson Davies, The Rebel Angels

“Chicanery is the spice that seasons the world.”
