“Buku adalah benda luar biasa. Buku itu seperti taman indah penuh dengan bunga aneka-warna, seperti permadani terbang yang sanggup melayangkan kita ke negeri-negeri tak dikenal sebelumnya. ”
Frank Gruber

“A novel is an interminable effort. You think until you are weary. You write until you are ready to scream. You stop. You rest. But you have to get back to it. You have to pick up the threads, revive your enthusiasm, recapture the mood.”
Frank Gruber, The Pulp Jungle
