The book's okay but I had to return it to the library before I finished as somebody else put a hold on it. I might check it out again, or maybe not.

Ray Bradbury
“I don't believe in colleges and universities. I believe in libraries because most students don't have any money. When I graduated from high school, it was during the Depression and we had no money. I couldn't go to college, so I went to the library three days a week for 10 years.”
Ray Bradbury

Garth Marenghi
“I know writers who use subtext, and they're all cowards.”
Garth Marenghi

Garth Marenghi
“He whisked off her shoes and panties in one movement, wild like an enraged shark. His bulky totem beating a seductive rhythm. Mary's body felt like it was burning, even though the room was properly air-conditioned. They tried all the positions - on top, doggy, and normal.

Exhausted they collapsed onto the recently extended sofa-bed. Then a hell beast ate them.”
Garth Marenghi, Slicer

Robert Louis Stevenson
“It is one of the worst things of sentiment that the voice grows to be more important than the words, and the speaker than that what is spoken.”
Robert Louis Stevenson, The Master of Ballantrae

Mark Twain
“All right, then, I'll go to hell.”
Mark Twain, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
