Re: Quirk Classics

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe in the Winter of Our Discontent by C. S. Lewis, James Goldman, and John Steinbeck. The authors were later sued by William Shakespeare in a notorious plagiarism suit.

Tibet: Carnivals?
Ligotti: Ceremonies for initiating children into the cult of the sinister.
Tibet: Gas stations?
Ligotti: Nothing to say about gas stations as such, although I've always responded to the smell of gasoline as if it were a kind of perfume.
