Watching my son play football yesterday (his team lost to a sickening last-gasp goal), I noticed straight away that the opposition coach had an extraordinarily loud voice. So what else could I do but write down everything he said over the course of the 80 minutes…


First Half

Keep it moving.

Make it stick.

Always awake.

Constant talking.

Ball to feet.

Leighton can hang.

Go with him.

Josh, talk to him.

Conrad Williams and 25 other people liked Jonathan Janz's review of The Road:
The Road by Cormac McCarthy
"This is one of my favorite books. It has its detractors, and of course, your mileage might vary, but here are a few quick observations about Cormac McCarthy's brilliant The Road.

1. This book made me cry. You've heard of the iceberg technique of s..." Read more of this review »

“You could be the ugliest, nastiest most miserable piece of shit known to man, but if you had a beating heart there was always a chance you'd turn into a diamond after a million years.”
Conrad Williams, One

“To those of you who are yet to plunge into the zygote pool and want to know what both plumbless horror and pure love feels like, have yourself a baby...”
Conrad Williams

“He was a prisoner to the calendar, he realised, as we all were. He thought in little boxes that were to be ticked off and filled with things to do. Almost every day he thought back to what he had been doing ten years ago, twenty years ago, further. He lived in the past, by his diary. He was a history man, his head full of dead leaves. It was a form of reassurance, he knew. There were too many roads into the future and he didn't like not having a map for it.

("Wait")”
Conrad Williams, Best New Horror 23
