Shades in Shadow by N.K. Jemisin
"WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT!

Falling in Love with Hominids by Nalo Hopkinson
"A mixed bag of short pieces, great to dip into over the course of a few weeks. I particularly enjoyed the various uses of nature in supernatural contexts, with plants and animals often taking centre stage."

Ray Bradbury
“Read poetry every day of your life. Poetry is good because it flexes muscles you don’t use often enough. Poetry expands the senses and keeps them in prime condition. It keeps you aware of your nose, your eye, your ear, your tongue, your hand.
And, above all, poetry is compacted metaphor or simile. Such metaphors, like Japanese paper flowers, may expand outward into gigantic shapes. Ideas lie everywhere through the poetry books, yet how rarely have I heard short story teachers recommending them for browsing.

What poetry? Any poetry that makes your hair stand up along your arms. Don’t force yourself too hard. Take it easy. Over the years you may catch up to, move even with, and pass T. S. Eliot on your way to other pastures. You say you don’t understand Dylan Thomas? Yes, but your ganglion does, and your secret wits, and all your unborn children. Read him, as you can read a horse with your eyes, set free and charging over an endless green meadow on a windy day.”
Ray Bradbury, Zen in the Art of Writing

Karen Lord
“I told you from the very beginning that it was a story about choices – wise choices, foolish choices, small yet momentous choices – for with choices come change, and with change comes opportunity , and both change and opportunity are the very cutting edge of the power of chaos. And yet as the undying ones know and the humans too often forget, even chaos cannot overcome the power of choice.”
Karen Lord, Redemption in Indigo

Ann Leckie
“Thoughts are ephemeral, they evaporate in the moment they occur, unless they are given action and material form. Wishes and intentions, the same. Meaningless, unless they impel you to one choice or another, some deed or course of action, however insignificant. Thoughts that lead to action can be dangerous. Thoughts that do not, mean less than nothing.”
Ann Leckie, Ancillary Justice

Gabrielle Zevin
“Sometimes books don't find us until the right time.”
Gabrielle Zevin, The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry

Gabrielle Zevin
“We aren’t the things we collect, acquire, read. We are, for as long as we are here, only love. The things we loved. The people we loved. And these, I think these really do live on”
Gabrielle Zevin, The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry
