"I may not know how to fly but I know how to read and that's almost the same thing."-- Gregory Maguire, Out of Oz

"...while finding true love was one of the most splendid things that could happen to you in life, finding a friend was equally splendid." -- Felix J Palma, The Map of the Sky

Quotable Thursday

Reading Nick Harkaway's Angelmaker. So far I'm loving it.

"Metal like soft cotton, not linked but threaded; warming in his hand: Woven Gold.

The trick is whispered from time to time in kasbahs and jewellers' shops and conventions and gatherings and markets, almost revealing itself and then vanishing so thoroughly that many consider it a fiction."

Although it does raise the question: Is a story Steampunk if it takes place in Modern day instead of Victorian era?

Quotable Thursday originally brought to you by Bookshelf Fantasies.
