Wee little shout out to Caleb Crain and Susan Choi, Lamba Literary Award Finalists
A good library will never be too neat, or too dusty, because somebody will always be in it, taking books off the shelves and staying up late reading them. — Lemony Snicket, Horseradish: Bitter Truths You Can’t Avoid (via observando)
Neil Gaiman Story Illustration by TimBakerFX
"Size doesn’t matter, sure, we are above the mundanity of counting page-length, but ever since the larger publishing world got it in their heads that longer novels are somehow more serious and of greater literary merit, there have been more and more literary books that sit bloated and bulging and would really do well to go on Paleo or start counting points or something."—Mat Johnson
