Stant Litore doesn't consider his writing a vocation; he considers it an act of survival.

With little time to think or react, he took a machete from the barn wall and hurried to defend his father's livestock; the experience left him shaken.

After that, community was never an easy thing for him. The country people he grew up with looked askance at his later choice of college degree and his eventual graduate research on the history of humanity's encounters with the undead, and the citizens of his college community were some

To Understand is to Stand Among

I love the word “understand.” It’s a very, very old English word, dating back to a time when the word “under” did not mean “beneath” but meant “in the middle of” or “among.” To understand a place, you must stand in the midst of it, looking around at everything there and being a part of…

“He knew all the stories. His grandfather had given them to him when he sat between the old man’s knees as a child. It was a comfort, though, to hear them again. To call them to mind. All these stories that made him more than just a vintner and more than just a man who carried a spear whom other men were willing to follow. More than just a man who lay dying. The stories made him one of the People, who would never die.”
Stant Litore, Strangers in the Land

“The problem with aging was not that death was near, for death was always near. The problem with aging was that a woman began to carry too many memories within her.”

“For the human memory is short, and even when we write it in stone we quickly forget and the stones crumble and even those stones then forget.”
