“This is what I am talking about: the bewitching power of moonlight. Moonlight incites dark passions like a cold flame, making hearts burning with the intensity of phosphorus.”
Edogawa Rampo

“The living world is a dream. The nocturnal dream is reality.”
Edogawa Rampo

“From dawn to dusk I spent my time in the real world. Only in my dreams at night could I indulge my fantasies.”
