“I find it most remarkable that we who are so intimately involved in the battle between good and evil are even more involved with the shades of gray in between them.”
Christopher Golden, Sons of Entropy

“What is it with you and the Wizard of Oz references? Zombies and werewolves and vamps, oh my. Zombies and werewolves and...”
Christopher Golden, Halloween Rain

“We're all leaving now", Blue Eyes whispered to her. "Together. Out the front door. Scream, and we'll kill you here and now.

Christopher Golden, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Vol. 2
