1. "Maxwell Arbus was the reason Saul lost an eye?" "Yes," Millie answers stiffly. "But that was a long time ago. Saul has moved on. So have I." Whatever checks I'd held on my emotions shatter.

There is no moving on because it's happening right now!"

6. "[M]y mother read a horror novel every night. She had read every one in the library. When birthdays and Christmas would come, I would consider buying her a new one, the latest Dean R. Koontz or Stephen King or whatever, but I couldn't. I didn't want to encourage her. I couldn't touch my father's cigarettes, couldn't look at the Pall Mall cartons in the pantry. I was the sort of child who couldn't even watch commercials for horror movies - the ad for Magic, the movie where marionette kills people. sent me into a six-month nightmare frenzy. So I couldn't look at her books, would turn them over so their covers wouldn't show, the raised lettering and splotches of blood - especially the V.C. Andrews oeuvre, those turgid pictures of those terrible kids, standing so still, all lit in blue."

10. "The streets of Prague were a fantasia scarcely touched by the twenty-first century—or the twentieth or nineteenth, for that matter. It was a city of alchemists and dreamers, its medieval cobbles once trod by golems, mystics, invading armies. Tall houses glowed goldenrod and carmine and eggshell blue, embellished with Rococo plasterwork and capped in roofs of uniform red. Baroque cupolas were the soft green of antique copper, and Gothic steeples stood ready to impale fallen angels. The wind carried the memory of magic, revolution, violins, and the cobbled lanes meandered like creeks. Thugs wore Motzart wigs and pushed chamber music on street corners, and marionettes hung in windows, making the whole city seem like a theater with unseen puppeteers crouched behind velvet."

11. "Prága utcái olyan fantáziát képeztek, amelyet alig érintett meg a huszonegyedik század – vagy akár a huszadik, esetleg a tizenkilencedik. Alkimisták és álmodozók városa volt, középkori macskakövein gólemek, misztikusok, hódító hadseregek jártak egykor. Magas házak ragyogtak aranyvesszo és kárminvörös és tojáshéjkék színekben, rokokó gipszcsipkékkel díszítve, egyforma piros tetok alatt. Barokk kupolák antik reze zöldellt lágyan, és gótikus tutornyok nyúltak az égbe, hogy felnyársalják a bukott angyalokat. A szél mágia, hegeduk emlékét sodorta, és a macskaköves utcák úgy kanyarogtak, mint megannyi patak. Mozart-parókás banditák kamarazenét játszottak az utcasarkokon, és az ablakokból marionettek lógtak, amelyektol az egész város egyetlen, nagy bábszínháznak tetszett, láthatatlan bábosokkal a bársony mögött. Mindennek fölébe tornyosult a kastély a dombteton, körvonalai élesek voltak, mint a tövisek. éjszaka reflektorfényben fürdött, kísértetiesen."

12. "When I was six, I discovered a terrible truth: I was the only human being on the planet. I was the seed and the sower and I made myself several seconds from the event horizon at the end of time - at the x before time began. Indeed, there were six billion other carbon-based sapient life forms moiling in the earth, but none of them were the real McCoy. I'm the real McCoy. The rest? Cardboard props, marionettes, grist for the mill. After I made me, I broke the mold under my heel."
Author: Laird Barron

The contemps around me hav eno idea how long it will take to rebuild something like this. Do they see the beauty around them? Are they dizzy from the heights on this pinnacle their civilization is teetering upon? No--they troop along, necks crooked into their ancient phones like bent marionettes. Their right cheeks glow."
Author: Thomas Mullen
