Great Moments in Literature

“I took a deep breath and told Arthur I wasn’t just somebody to fuck. ‘What did you think we were?’ he said. ‘A little family?’ He was getting into a lot of harder drugs — they made him say things he didn’t agree with a few minutes later. But they were still the things he said. That was the last time I felt betrayed by a man, I think. Afterward I expected it.”

— Leslie Jamison, The Gin Closet, 2010

“THE POWER KNOWS NO DISTANCE! IT PROJECTS FOR MILES — TO THE CITY! TO A BUILDING — TO A WINDOW! AND BEYOND THE WINDOW IS LAURA CONWAY — SLEEPING — SLEEPING — AS THE MARK APPEARS ON HER NECK — TO CHANGE HER BODY CHEMISTRY! WHAT HAS BEEN DONE — IS NOW DONE!! THE RESULTS OF IT WILL RIVAL THE MOST AWESOME EVENTS EVER RECORDED!!”

— Jack Kirby, SUPERMAN’S PAL JIMMY OLSEN, Vol. 1, No. 142,”The Man From Transilvane!” 1971
