3. "Contemporary fantasists all bow politely to Lord Tennyson and Papa Tolkien, then step around them to go back to the original texts for inspiration--and there are a lot of those texts.

Without shame, we pillage medieval romance for all we're worth."

The Dr. Roland told me that he thought I was overreacting, and the "fingeral" wasn't even a real word. Then I told him that I though he was underreacting, probably because he's embarrassed that he doesn't know how Latin works. Then he claimed that "underrecating" isn't a word either. The man has a terrible bedside manner."

It woke him up and got him off the road."
Author: Kurt Vonnegut

Time is faltering in preparation for rewriting itself.""Like the way your computer freezes up more and more frequently before the hard drive crashes and erases your twenty-page term paper?"

But do you want to own it?"
