“Monsters are real, and ghosts are real too. They live inside us, and sometimes, they win.” —Stephen King”
Richard Chizmar, The Long Way Home

“The question that had bloomed in her mind while sitting on the bench that long ago summer day resurfaced—and rather rudely—earlier this morning as Gwendy was busy cushioning the button box in her carry-on bag with rolled up wads of socks and sweaters: How much of her life is her own doing, and how much the doing of the box with its treats and buttons?”
Richard Chizmar, Gwendy's Magic Feather

“It was just a strong...feeling.He gave off this seriously creepy vibe, a kind of hunger, you could feel it wafting off him.”
Richard Chizmar, Gwendy's Magic Feather
