Robert Aickman
“Ursula excelled me without difficulty in swimming, sailing, and fell-walking alike. Marriage had sheered off the first edge of romance from our actual caresses, but there was a sweet affection between us, as between a devoted brother and a devoted sister, though I suppose that is not an approved way of putting it. I always wanted a sister, and never more than at this present moment.”
Robert Aickman, Cold Hand in Mine

Samuel Fort
“Thus, it came to pass that Martha and William spent every night in Venice sleeping somewhere above the slowly decaying remains of their foster daughter and a box of murdered puppies.”
Samuel Fort, Cult of the Great Eleven

Terry Pratchett
“Colon in particular had great difficulty with the idea that you went on investigating after someone had confessed. It outraged his training and experience. You got a confession and there it ended. You didn’t go around disbelieving people. You disbelieved people only when they said they were innocent. Only guilty people were trustworthy. Anything”
Terry Pratchett, Feet of Clay

Thomas Ligotti
“And one thing we know is real: horror. It is so real, in fact, that we cannot be sure it could not exist without us. Yes, it needs our imaginations and our consciousness, but it does not ask or require our consent to use them. Indeed, horror operates with complete autonomy. Generating ontological havoc, it is mephitic foam upon which our lives merely float. And, all said, we must face up to it: horror is more real than we are.”
Thomas Ligotti, Songs of a Dead Dreamer

Robert Aickman
“Men’s dreams, their inner truth, are unheimlich also, your Highness. If any man examines his inner truth with both eyes wide open, and his inner eye wide open also, he will be overcome with terror at what he finds. That, I have always supposed, is why we hear these stories about a region of our lake. Out there, on the water, in darkness, out of sight, men encounter the image within them. Or so they suppose. It is not to be expected that many will return unscathed.’ ‘Thus with men, Spalt. What about women?’ ‘Women have no inner life that is so decisively apart. With women the inner life merges ever with the totality.”
Robert Aickman, Cold Hand in Mine
