I don't think Hal Johnson is a very unusual sort of a guy. He's just -- well, the average American citizen and family man, the kind that are the backbone of the nation. I admire him and like him. I like his attitude. Until, that is, he gets behind the wheel of an automobile. At that point he changes. He changes from a careful, considerate citizen—to a menace.

–"Driven to Kill," 1948 driver's safety film.

If someone drove a dump truck full of money up to my house...well, I'm not made of stone.

On one hand, I think the book answers all the questions and wraps everything up, so there's no need for a sequel. But on the other hand, the world is a wide world, and there are many places in it to have adventures, and I could see books in which people might meet the Rosicrucians or seek the nagbu-thorn and never talk about lycanthropes at all.

Although I guess that's the world most books take place in?(less)

Albion II

Harold Bloom has said that Blake’s prophetic work is “in proportion to its merits the least read body of poetry in the English language,” and now that I’ve read all of Albion, I would like to propose this poem as a rival. I’m not so crazy as to think it’s as good as The Four Zoas (with which it definitely has parallels), but it is so much more less read that it keeps the proportion steady.


I as...

“A shameful fact about humanity is that some people can be so ugly that no one will be friends with them. It is shameful that humans can be so cruel, and it is shameful that humans can be so ugly.”

“...beneath the temple of Emesa there is a system of special sewers wherein the human blood rejoins the plasma of certain animals. Through these sewers, coiling into broiling corkscrews whose circles diminish the further they descend to the depths of the earth, the blood of those sacrificed according to the needful rites will find its way back to the geological seams, the congealed cracks of chaos. This pure blood, thinned and refined by the rituals, and rendered acceptable to the god of the underworld, splashes the groaning deities of Erebus, whose breath finally purifies it.”
Antonin Artaud, Heliogabalus; or, the Crowned Anarchist
