Happy Halloween everyone. Here’s a story, my gift to you on this most wonderful of days.

Quotes by Brett J. Talley  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“I don't understand exactly what's going on, but Goodreads shouldn't be deleting reviews, period. People are smart enough to look at them on their own and make up their mind, and deleting reviews undermines the integrity of the site.”
Brett J. Talley

“Respect is a thing earned, not bought, and a man who lets it be known that he seeks respect will probably never see it bestowed.”
Brett J. Talley, That Which Should Not Be

“Words, my young friend.  Words are all the power in the Universe.  It was by words God created the Earth, the heavens and Hell.  Is it any surprise that a book be the most powerful force in the world? ”
Brett J. Talley, That Which Should Not Be
