“Terrible and ancient and scarred with the endless cold of space, the terrible and ancient things glistened with frozen moisture and colors played across the surface of the skin, colors that were never meant to be seen on earth.”
Simon Kurt Unsworth, Lovecraft Unbound

“Because this is Hell, Thomas—have you understood nothing? We all do what it requires of us, no matter how pointless or trivial those things appear to be. We are, all of us, at the whim of forces and desires and urgencies far greater, far wider, than we can ever hope to recognize or understand. Hell knows what you will find in there, but it will not pass on that knowledge, because you need to find it for yourselves.”
Simon Kurt Unsworth, The Devil's Detective

“But joy is individual, and can only be experienced alone. Hell is communal, but Heaven is personal.”
Simon Kurt Unsworth, The Devil's Evidence
