“Just because you pretend the universe doesn't have teeth doesn't mean you won't get eaten in the end.”
Paul Russell, The Coming Storm

“It is Halloween,” he explains coyly. “I wanted to come out as something beautiful. None of this witch stuff for me. My God, don’t we spend our whole life as witches?”
Paul Russell, The Salt Point

“When he got a story urge, there was nothing to do but grab a pen and write. Otherwise it was too much like getting a hard-on and not jerking off.”
Paul Russell, The Coming Storm
