Rachel Rising, Volume 1 by Terry Moore
"Rachel wakes up in a not-so-shallow grave. She's been strangled.
She makes her battered way home, unable to recall what happened.
Who killed her? Why is she back from the dead? How come some people don't recognize her? The questions mount up, and so..." Read more of this review »

Lindy West
“And being an "equal opportunity offender"—as in, "It's okay, because Daniel Tosh makes fun of ALL people: women, men, AIDS victims, dead babies, gay guys, blah blah blah"—falls apart when you remember (as so many of us are forced to all the time) that all people are not in equal positions of power. "Oh, don't worry—I punch everyone in the face! People, baby ducks, a lion, this Easter Island statue, the ocean…" Okay, well that baby duck is dead now.”
Lindy West, Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman

Joss Whedon
“Make it dark, make it grim, make it tough, but then, for the love of God, tell a joke.”
Joss Whedon

Neil Gaiman
“A short story is the ultimate close-up magic trick -- a couple of thousand words to take you around the universe or break your heart.”
Neil Gaiman

Simeon Berry
“Every night, just before you fall asleep, other voices start talking amongst themselves in the monochrome waters at the deep end of your brain…”
Simeon Berry, Ampersand Revisited

Lindy West
“Punching up versus punching down isn’t a mandate or a hard-and-fast rule or a universal taxonomy—I’m sure any contrarian worth his salt could list exceptions all day—it’s simply a reminder that systems of power are always relevant, a helpful thought exercise for people who have trouble grasping why “bitch” is worse than “asshole.” It doesn’t mean that white people are better than black people, it means that we live in a society that treats white people better than black people, and to pretend that we don’t is an act of violence.”
Lindy West, Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman
