“Science...how beautiful science was - that it was one of the proofs of God's presence. All that order out of chaos.”
Jim Kelly

“That was the one moment he would always remember. The unhappiest moment of a happy childhood. The empty desolation of being on the wrong side of that sheet of ice, in the cold sterile water, while the fire burnt at the farm and the smell of Christmas food seeped out of the kitchen. And above him always the criss-crossed pattern of his own skates.”
Jim Kelly, The Water Clock

“The cellar, uncorked like a buried bottle, gave off the stale breath of the years.”
Jim Kelly, The Skeleton Man
