I love Junji Ito, in case you haven't been following along, and having any complaints about getting hardcover editions as nice as the ones from Viz feels a little like the very definition of looking a gift horse in the mouth but also the decisions th ...more

So, I am not up on the recent Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle comics. I say that not to disparage them in any way - I have every reason to believe that they're quite good, especially now - simply that I haven't gotten around to reading them before now.

Quotes by Orrin Grey  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“He was born of a human-fungal love affair that shook the court of Onddo. His mother was a human, a princess of the court, by the name of ‘Agatha’. His father was the notorious pirate captain, AGARICUS AUGUSTUS — THE PRINCE.”
Orrin Grey, Fungi

“His father was captured shortly after by the AMANITA PHALLOIDES and executed horribly.”
Orrin Grey, Fungi

“Like most pure fungi narratives, its interpretation and retelling into human terms is uncertain.”
Orrin Grey, Fungi

Topics Mentioning This Author

“For these beings, fall is ever the normal season, the only weather, there be no choice beyond. Where do they come from? The dust. Where do they go? The grave. Does blood stir their veins? No: the night wind. What ticks in their head? The worm. What speaks from their mouth? The toad. What sees from their eye? The snake. What hears with their ear? The abyss between the stars. They sift the human storm for souls, eat flesh of reason, fill tombs with sinners. They frenzy forth....Such are the autumn people.”
Ray Bradbury

“If the liberal arts do nothing else, they provide engaging metaphors for the thinking they displace.”
Roger Zelazny, Unicorn Variations

“Our bodies are the most permanent of Trapper Keepers.”
Adam Cesare
