“...he could feel hot tears coming to his eyes as the image of that night, outside the house as the November wind blew black leaves up off the ground and the sky turned colors like bruised flesh.”
David Nickle, Eutopia: A Novel of Terrible Optimism
tags: autumn

“By this time it was well past midnight. You know how that is. It’s a time when you start asking questions about things that in the light of day you wouldn’t consider twice. It’s a time … well, we both know how that goes, in the dark hour.”
David Nickle, The Best Horror of the Year: Volume Four
