“Because, you see, the cruel gods are stronger than the kind gods, and they will always beat them in the end. You doubt it? Look at the world, my brother, my sister. And so the spirit of Roth is here with me also, and battles for my soul. And I don't know who will win.”
Anthony McGowan, The Knife That Killed Me

“Thinking? You're not thinking. You're reasoning without reasons, and that's just another word for prejudice.”
Anthony McGowan, Henry Tumour

“I spat out the appropriate response of bitter laughter. Heads turned to me again. I guess I wasn't looking too sane to the crumblies. [referring to the old people in the room]”
Anthony McGowan, Jack Tumor
