Joy shared 7 highlights from
Slouching Towards Bethlehem by Joan Didion
I know something about dread myself, and appreciate the elaborate systems with which some people manage to fill the void, appreciate all the opiates of the people, whether they are as accessible as alcohol and heroin and promiscuity or as hard to come by as faith in God or History.

Cameron Awkward-Rich
“Get it? Gender is a country, a field of signifying roses you can walk through, or wear tucked behind your ear.

Eventually the flower wilts & you can pick another, or burn the field, or turn & run back across the tracks.

(from "Essay on the Theory of Motion")”
Cameron Awkward-Rich, Transit

“[Kirk] paced back toward his command chair, all eyes on him. "He must have a weakness."

"Certainly," Chekov said. "Is he not basically humanoid? He could be poisoned, phasered, stabbed-"

Kirk sneered. "Without killing him, Ensign."

With a shrug, Chekov turned quietly back to his console, pulling his hands from his lap and placing them on the controls.”
Dave Galanter, Troublesome Minds

Ann Leckie
“Thank all the gods,” said Sphene. “I was afraid you were going to suggest we sing that song about the thousand eggs.” “A thousand eggs all nice and warm,” I sang. “Crack, crack, crack, a little chick is born. Peep peep peep peep! Peep peep peep peep!” “Why, Fleet Captain,” Translator Zeiat exclaimed, “that’s a charming song! Why haven’t I heard you sing it before now?” I took a breath. “Nine hundred ninety-nine eggs all nice and warm…” “Crack, crack, crack,” Translator Zeiat joined me, her voice a bit breathy but otherwise quite pleasant, “a little chick is born. Peep peep peep peep! What fun! Are there more verses?” “Nine hundred and ninety-eight of them, Translator,” I said. “We’re not cousins anymore,” said Sphene.”
Ann Leckie, Ancillary Mercy

Eoin Colfer
“Most craft give a nod, however brief and unfriendly, towards beauty. Vogon ships did not nod towards beauty. They pulled on ski masks and mugged beauty in a dark alley They spat in the eye of beauty and bludgeoned their wait through the notions of aesthetics and aerodynamics. Vogon cruisers did not so much travel through space as defile it and toss it aside.”
Eoin Colfer, And Another Thing...

“I like David Foster Wallace. But if you type David Foster Wallace into OkCupid, it’s a shitshow.”
Moira Weigel, Labor of Love: The Invention of Dating
