Fragments of Horror by Junji Ito

A truly disturbing collection of vignettes, deftly combines themes of Japanese folklore with an undertone of modern alienation. Highly recommended for anyone who likes to lie awake at night thinking about something you read six hours earlier.

“The sacred exists only at the expense of the truth.”
Mark Russell

“When he arrived at the town of Bethel, he was teased by a group of boys who called him “baldy.” Elisha responded to their taunts by summoning a team of wild she-bears. The bears mauled the boys to death, leaving the bloody remains of forty-two children littered on the ground.  Nobody knows why Elisha didn’t just summon a full head of hair.”
Mark Russell

“It might seem a little trite, all this trouble over a stupid wall. But you’ve got to understand, it was the wall that finally allowed people to return to Jerusalem without having to worry about being overrun by thieves, marauders, and rapists. A few hardscrabble pioneers can make a go of it in a lawless wasteland, but if you want the artists, priests, and scribes to come, then you need a wall to protect them. And those are the people who create your culture, write your history. It might be construction workers who build your nation, and soldiers who guard it, but it’s the nerds who make it a civilization.”
Mark Russell
