Patrick Somerville
“I don't think of love in terms of relationships. It happens in terms of seconds, but it goes away like that, too. I pass a nurse, I love her, it ends when I go around a corner; at a restaurant I see a forlorn man at the table next to me, and I love him, and the conversation pulls me back, and it's ended. A patient comes in, and she is sick, and I love her, and then she dies, and I never see her again. This is what I live for. Don't think that it's sad.”
Patrick Somerville, The Universe in Miniature in Miniature

John Varley
“We all love after-the-bomb stories. If we didn't, why would there be so many of them? There's something attractive about all those people being gone, about wandering in a depopulated world, scrounging cans of Campbell's pork and beans, defending one's family from marauders. But some secret part of us thinks it would be good to survive. All those other folks will die. That's what after-the-bomb stories are all about.”
John Varley

Mat Johnson
“Even drunk, I knew any escape plan that involved going to Detroit, Michigan, was a harbinger of doom.”
Mat Johnson, Pym

Hilary Mantel
“At some point on your road you have to turn and start walking back towards yourself. Or the past will pursue you, and bite the nape of your neck, leave you bleeding in the ditch. Better to turn and face it with such weapons as you possess.”
Hilary Mantel, Beyond Black

Stephen King
“When it comes to the past, everyone writes fiction.”
Stephen King, Joyland
