Why had I become a writer in the first place? Because I wasn't fit for society; I didn't fit into the system.
Brian Aldiss (1925 -)

When childhood dies, its corpses are called adults and they enter society, one of the politer names of hell. That is why we dread children, even if we love them, they show us the state of our decay.
Civilization is the distance man has placed between himself and his excreta.
Fantasy is literature for teenagers.
Science fiction is no more written for scientists that ghost stories are written for ghosts.
