Great Moments in Literature

“I made a big entrance when I arrived in my flying DeLorean, which I’d obtained by completing a Back to the Future quest on the planet Zemeckis. The DeLorean came outfitted with a (non-functioning) flux capacitor, but I’d made several additions to its equipment and appearance. First, I’d installed an artificially intelligent onboard computer named KITT (purchased in an online auction) into the dashboard, along with a matching red Knight Rider scanner embedded in the DeLorean’s grill. Then I’d outfitted the car with an oscillation overthruster, a device that allowed it to travel through solid matter. Finally, to complete my ’80s super-vehicle theme, I’d slapped a Ghostbusters logo on each of the DeLorean’s gull-wing doors, then added personalized plates that read ECTO-88.”

–Ernest Cline, Ready Player One, 2011

 

HOLES! ALWAYS THE HOLES, IN MAGIC! THE GAPING, DARK VACUUMS, BECKONING…BECKONING…! THEY HAVE BEEN THE VOIDS OF SPACE, AND THE GATEWAYS TO DIMENSIONS…THEY HAVE HURLED FORTH LIFE, AND LOVE OF ALL THAT LIVES…AND SWALLOWED WHOLE THE PLANET EARTH. ALWAYS THE HOLES!

–Steve Englehart, DOCTOR STRANGE, Vol. 1, No. 18, “The Dream is Dead!” 1976
