The Hanging Stranger by Philip K. Dick

Clear rating
This story encapsulates the era so nicely. It picks at the edges of the false narrative of the perfect post-war America. The veneer of optimism almost but not quite obfuscating the deep red paranoia and suspicion. The Other is here, and they must be ...more

All Cats Are Gray by Andre Norton

This is a cute story but would have been more powerful without the disability compensation of extra powers. That said, this makes me want to check out more of Andre Norton's stories with cats set in space. This story is available for free on Project ...more

H.P. Lovecraft
“The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of the infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.”
H.P. Lovecraft, The Call of Cthulhu and Other Weird Stories

J.R.R. Tolkien
“I cordially dislike allegory in all its manifestations, and always have done so since I grew old and wary enough to detect its presence. I much prefer history – true or feigned– with its varied applicability to the thought and experience of readers. I think that many confuse applicability with allegory, but the one resides in the freedom of the reader, and the other in the purposed domination of the author.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Douglas Adams
“The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy also mentions alcohol. It says that the best drink in existence is the Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster, the effect of which is like having your brains smashed out with a slice of lemon wrapped round a large gold brick.”
Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Clark Ashton Smith
“in the days when the world begins to bleach and shrivel, and the sun is blotched with death. Socialist and Individualist, they'll all be a little dirt lodged deep in the granite wrinkles of the globe's countenance.”
Clark Ashton Smith

L. Frank Baum
“That proves you are unusual," returned the Scarecrow; "and I am convinced that the only people worthy of consideration in this world are the unusual ones. For the common folks are like the leaves of a tree, and live and die unnoticed.”
L. Frank Baum
