“A story isn't like a smoothly running engine, but is rather like a photograph. Photos can never be a perfect representation of what an eye looking at the same subject will see, partially due to the limitations of lenses and emulsions, but largely due to the conscious choice of the photographer.”
Nick Mamatas

“Reading about Japan in the West is often like looking at a funhouse mirror through a kaleidoscope.”
Nick Mamatas, The Future is Japanese

“Personally, I don’t bother with anything cheap—my mother always said cheap was dear in the long run—but some people aren’t fussy.”
Nick Mamatas, The Future is Japanese
