“Deep in the ravines where He sleeps
three Maids for four secrets keep
For where virtue warms the worm
the meek, the weak, the sneaks, and the freaks
shall disport in the hurting dirt
—the Seven Suffragans’ Slut”
Daniel Scott Westby, Lie by the Sword: Fimbulvetr - Book Two

“In the end, no one knew how many minds the mask held. The only thing known for certain was that they all hated each other.

“What happened to fantasy for me is what also happened to rock and roll. It found a common denominator for making maximum money. As a result, it lost its tensions, its anger, its edginess and turned into one big cup of cocoa.”
Michael Moorcock
