Book cover for Internment
Muslims have been in America since the first slaves were brought here. Can you even imagine what they went through to hold on to Islam? What they endured?”
“Reluctantly, painfully, he detaches his tattered mind from the hard hook-pins of word and meter. He rolls away from his madness and strokes the purring, winding cat.”
Siobhan Carroll, For He Can Creep

Misty Griffin
“Some things you must always be unable to bear. Some things you must never stop refusing to bear. Injustice and outrage and dishonor and shame. No matter how young you are or how old you have got. Not for kudos and not for cash: your picture in the paper nor money in the back either. Just refuse to bear them. —William Faulkner, Intruder in the Dust”
Misty Griffin, Tears of the Silenced

Carmen Maria Machado
“I speak into the silence. I toss the stone of my story into a vast crevice; measure the emptiness by its small sound.”
Carmen Maria Machado, In the Dream House

T. Kingfisher
“I will unmake him,” said the clock wife simply. “I will pull the marrow from his bones and pour lead into the spaces left behind. I will make his dying into a place and visit it every day until the end of eternity.”
T. Kingfisher, The Seventh Bride

Mira Grant
“No offense, hon, but you flirt like it’s a form of espionage and you’ll be executed if you get caught.”
Mira Grant, Into the Drowning Deep
