G.M. Malliet
“[From p. 70 of the Midnight Ink paperback.]

"You have to have a corpse by page fifty-seven. Page seventy at the absolute outside."
"Says who?'
"Why, so says everyone. It's the industry standard."

[There has been, as yet, no corpse.]”
G.M. Malliet, Death and the Lit Chick

Carrie Vaughn
“Some bodies were meant for Speedo. His was black.”
Carrie Vaughn, Kitty and the Dead Man's Hand

Oliver Sacks
“This drove home to me how barbaric our own medicine and our own customs are in the “civilized” world, where we put ill or demented people away and try to forget them.”
Oliver Sacks, On the Move: A Life

China Miéville
“Of all the skills necessary for her work, what she was perhaps worst at was being polite to inanimate things.”
China Miéville, Kraken

Mick Herron
“On discovering a fire, the instructions ran, shout Fire and try to put it out. It was useful, heart-of the matter advice, and could be extended almost indefinitely in any direction. On discovering your husband's guests are arseholes, shout Arseholes and try to put them out.”
Mick Herron, Down Cemetery Road
