“There are no things man was not meant to know. There are, perhaps, things man is too dumb to figure out, but that's a different problem.”
Michael Kurland

“Dimly lit restaurants always make me think they're trying to hide the food.”
Michael Kurland, The Unicorn Girl

“Holmes had no sisters, and a man who grows up without sisters has few defences against those wiles, those innocent wiles of body, speech and motion, with which nature has provided young females in its blind desire to propagate the species.”
Michael Kurland, The Sherlock Holmes Megapack: 25 Modern Tales by Masters: 25 Modern Tales by Masters
