Re: Quirk Classics

Not to be forgotten is the more contemporary classic The Horse Whisperer in Darkness by Nicholas Evans and H. P. Lovecraft.

"What does it mean to be alive except to court disaster and suffering at every moment?"

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.

Re: Quirk Classics

I like this game. I am quite fond of the poem "Daddy and Mummy" by Sylvia Plath, the ancient Egyptians, and Universal Studios.

"Like a dog!" he said; it was as if the shame of it must outlive him. - Franz Kafka, The Trial

Re: Quirk Classics

Bloch would definitely have excelled at this game, but I doubt if he could top GSC. Funny stuff, Phil. Magic Mountains of Madness. lol
