Harriet Prescott Spofford
“We found, before the hands of the dial had taught us the lapse of a week, that this would be something not to be endured. The sun sank lower every day behind the crags and silvery horns; the heavens grew to wear a hue of violet, almost black, and yet unbearably dazzling; as the notes of our voices fell upon the atmosphere they assumed a metallic tone, as if the air itself had become frozen from the beginning of the world and they tinkled against it; our sufferings had mounted in their intensity till they were too great to be resisted.”
Harriet Prescott Spofford, The Moonstone Mass and Others

Flynn Meaney
“In winter this town is freezing. You step out your door in the morning and the whole place looks like one of those nature specials in which a guy brings a camcorder to the North Pole and then the camera cuts out and you hear on the news that he got eaten by a bear”
Flynn Meaney, The Boy Recession

“We had proceeded but a few days, coasting the crushing capes of rock that every where seemed to run out in a diablerie of tusks and horns to drive us from the region that they warded, now cruising through a runlet of blue water just wide enough for our keel, with silver reaches of frost stretching away into a ghastly horizon—now plunging upon tossing seas, tho sun wheeling round and round, and never sinking from the strange, weird sky above us, when again to our look-out a glimmer in the low horizon told its awful tale—a sort of smoky lustre like that which might ascend from an army of spirits—the fierce and fatal spirits tented on the terrible field of the ice-floe.”
Harriet Prescott Spofford, The Moonstone Mass and Others

“I used to figure that Santa was the zombie. Not like modern zombies, more like the voodoo ones. The elves resurrect this long dead saint to do their festive bidding every year because they were magically restricted to the North Pole. It’s entirely possibly my mom let me watch too many horror movies.”
Thomm Quackenbush, Flies to Wanton Boys

“This place is just like the North Pole, except it smells like mushrooms and everyone looks like they want to hurt me." Buddy the Elf”
Buddy The Elf, Santa's Ultimate Recipes

Petter Dass
“Det siunes at Verdens bortliggende Kandt,
Vil have sig noget forvaret iblandt,
Naturen er icke forbunden
Til een eller annen besynderlig Tract,
Gud haver og noget ved Polen nedlagt,
Hvorved er Fornøyelse funden.”
Petter Dass, The Trumpet of Nordland
