Rachel Caine
“Anything is possible. The impossible just takes longer.’” “Stupid”
Rachel Caine, Paper and Fire

Patrick Rothfuss
“If you want to write a fantasy story with Norse gods, sentient robots, and telepathic dinosaurs, you can do just that. Want to throw in a vampire and a lesbian unicorn while you're at it? Go ahead. Nothing's off limits. But the endless possibility of the genre is a trap. It's easy to get distracted by the glittering props available to you and forget what you're supposed to be doing: telling a good story. Don't get me wrong, magic is cool. But a nervous mother singing to her child at night while something moves quietly through the dark outside her house? That's a story. Handled properly, it's more dramatic than any apocalypse or goblin army could ever be.”
Patrick Rothfuss

Philip K. Dick
“It is sometimes an appropriate response to reality to go insane.”
Philip K. Dick, VALIS

Walter Moers
“Wednesdays were the best thing about Atlantis. The middle of the week was a traditional holiday there. Everyone stopped work and celebrated the fact that half the week was over.”
Walter Moers, The 13½ Lives of Captain Bluebear

George R.R. Martin
“A mind needs books like a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its edge. That is why I read so much.”
George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones
