J.G. Ballard
“I believe in the power of the imagination to remake the world, to release the truth within us, to hold back the night, to transcend death, to charm motorways, to ingratiate ourselves with birds, to enlist the confidences of madmen.”
J.G. Ballard

Steve Aylett
“No matter how good the idea, there’s always an advocate extreme enough to deter people.”
Steve Aylett

J.G. Ballard
“Civilised life, you know, is based on a huge number of illusions in which we all collaborate willingly. The trouble is we forget after a while that they are illusions and we are deeply shocked when reality is torn down around us.”
J.G. Ballard

Howard Waldrop
“I can't die yet - I haven't seen The Jolson Story!”
Howard Waldrop

Fyodor Dostoevsky
“We're always thinking of eternity as an idea that cannot be understood, something immense. But why must it be? What if, instead of all this, you suddenly find just a little room there, something like a village bath-house, grimy, and spiders in every corner, and that's all eternity is. Sometimes, you know, I can't help feeling that that's what it is.”
Fyodor Dostoevsky, Crime and Punishment
