Asylum of the Ancient Ones by H P Lovecraft Lunatic Asylum

This is a collection of HP Lovecraft inspired stories, some of which are from the point of view of Mythos creatures. It is fun, and funny, sometimes horrifying and sometimes disgusting. I enjoyed it a lot.

A great collection of stories, and well worth savoring. It's also well named, because one of these stories (about the living statue) has got to be the creepiest thing I've ever named.

My general response to Crichton books has been that they are fun and engaging for about 3/4 of the story, then the author loses interest and they just kind of... stop.

This particular book actually has a beginning, middle and end, perhaps because of t

Oscar Wilde
“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”
Oscar Wilde

H.L. Mencken
“Public opinion, in its raw state, gushes out in the immemorial form of the mob's fear. It is piped into central factories, and there it is flavored and colored, and put into cans.”
H.L. Mencken, Notes on Democracy

Peter S. Beagle
“The magician was studying her face with his green eyes. "Your face is wet," he said worriedly. "I hope that's spray. If you've become human enough to cry, then no magic in the world — oh, it must be spray. Come with me. It had better be spray.”
Peter S. Beagle, The Last Unicorn

Peter S. Beagle
“The true secret in being a hero lies in knowing the order of things. The swineherd cannot already be wed to the princess when he embarks on his adventures, nor can the boy knock on the witch's door when she is already away on vacation. The wicked uncle cannot be found out and foiled before he does something wicked. Things must happen when it is time for them to happen. Quests may not simply be abandoned; prophecies may not be left to rot like unpicked fruit; unicorns may go unrescued for a very long time, but not forever. The happy ending cannot come in the middle of the story.”
Peter S. Beagle, The Last Unicorn

Terry Pratchett
“God does not play dice with the universe; He plays an ineffable game of His own devising, which might be compared, from the perspective of any of the other players [i.e. everybody], to being involved in an obscure and complex variant of poker in a pitch-dark room, with blank cards, for infinite stakes, with a Dealer who won't tell you the rules, and who smiles all the time.”
Terry Pratchett, Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch
