Lovecraft Country by Matt Ruff
Lovecraft Country
by Matt Ruff (Goodreads Author)
Rate this book
Clear rating
A fun series of linked stories that attempt to reconcile Lovecraft's glaring racism with the enduring popularity of his weird fiction. Ruff never disappoints.

C.S. Lewis
“The term is over: the holidays have begun. The dream is ended: this is the morning.”
C.S. Lewis, The Last Battle

Kim Stanley Robinson
“We will go out into the world and plant gardens and orchards to the horizons, we will build roads through the mountains and across the deserts, and terrace the mountains and irrigate the deserts until there will be garden everywhere, and plenty for all, and there will be no more empires or kingdoms, no more caliphs, sultans, emirs, khans, or zamindars, no more kings or queens or princes, no more quadis or mullahs or ulema, no more slavery and no more usury, no more property and no more taxes, no more rich and no more poor, no killing or maiming or torture or execution, no more jailers and no more prisoners, no more generals, soldiers, armies or navies, no more patriarchy, no more caste, no more hunger, no more suffering than what life brings us for being born and having to die, and then we will see for the first time what kind of creatures we really are.”
Kim Stanley Robinson, The Years of Rice and Salt

Haruki Murakami
“The world is a huge space, but the space that will take you in - and it doesn't have to be very big - is nowhere to be found. You seek a voice, but what do you get? Silence. You look for silence, but guess what? All you hear over and over and over is the voice of this omen. And sometimes this prophetic voice pushes a secret switch hidden deep inside your brain.

Your heart is like a great river after a long spell of rain, spilling over its banks. All signposts that once stood on the ground are gone, inundated and carried away by that rush of water. And still the rain beats down on the surface of the river. Every time you see a flood like that on the news you tell yourself: That's it. That's my heart.”
Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore

Stephen R. Donaldson
“Joy is in the ears that hear.”
Stephen R. Donaldson

James A. Garfield
“It has occurred to me that the thing you have, that all men have enough of, is perhaps the thing that you care for the best, and that is your leisure - the leisure you have to think; the leisure you have to be let alone; the leisure you have to throw the plummet into your mind, and sound the depth and dive for things below.”
James A. Garfield, The Works Of James Abram Garfield
