"I'm used to thinking of it as one of my favourite books, maybe the one that affected me most clearly both as a reader and an aspiring author - and yet I haven't reread for... what? Ten years? And I've never read it as it was written, in English.

So, yeah, I'm a bit afraid. What if it's not as brilliant as I remember it??

I'm willing to take the risk, though. I've just realised I've missed those stories so much."

All the Birds in the Sky by Charlie Jane Anders
"Just wonderful. A dazzlingly original, often hilarious, ultimately deeply touching modern fable. Charlie Jane Anders writes with a rare clarity, a bracing confidence, and a delicious weirdness. Dream logic blends with ardent longing and dystopian..." Read more of this review »

“Second star to the right and straight on 'til morning. ”
J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

Neil Gaiman
“One describes a tale best by telling the tale. You see? The way one describes a story, to oneself or to the world, is by telling the story. It is a balancing act and it is a dream. The more accurate the map, the more it resembles the territory. The most accurate map possible would be the territory, and thus would be perfectly accurate and perfectly useless.
The tale is the map that is the territory.
You must remember this.”
Neil Gaiman, American Gods

J.M. Barrie
“She's awfully fond of Wendy,' he said to himself. He was angry with her now for not seeing why she could not have Wendy.
The reason was so simple: 'I'm fond of her too. We can't both have her, lady.”
J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

Douglas Adams
“The ships hung in the sky in much the same way that bricks don't.”
Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

“Dreams do come true, if only we wish hard enough. You can have anything in life if you will sacrifice everything else for it.”
