PETE ABRAMS QUOTES

American writer and illustrator (1970- )

Isn't everything a little weird? We all know the answer. Man, machine, reality. What holds it together is that we're all nuts! And that is the ultimate truth, and maybe that's all we need. That and ferret-pee-proof upholstery.

When you start with wussie mortals, you get wussie demons. Sure, they steal souls and rend flesh occasionally, but they choke up in a pinch.

You gotta respect a girl who realizes that romantic relationships are built on lies and goes to town with it!

You are free to move about the cabin. Unless your hands are duct-taped together.

You've lost sight of the fact that it is our weeniness that makes us human!

The threat-to-minute ratio on this ship is staggering.

How did you know that what you sought was redemption and not righteous vengeance?

I'm sorry we cannot help you get home to your dimension. We have a pressing mission to get cough-syrup to a dying planet.

The hardest thing about winning is trying to do so without losing something of greater importance.

Wow! When you become a vampire, men become broad shouldered and muscle-bound and women become tall and thin! You ever think of selling this on QVC?

Great things can rise from fetid pits of wanton death and sorrow.

I think of Torg as a friend, a brother. My desire to punch Val in the head is more like a hobby.

And another adventure draws to a close with the classic happy ending. Happy except for the fact that Berk is dead, Aylee is gone, and Gwynn is a soulless vegetable. At least the bad guy got away! Ok, so the ending wasn't so happy, but hey, you can be happy to know nothing else can go wrong!

Get your arm off of me: I'm trying to listen for shoulder-worms in your rotator cuff.

I'm not actually going to blow you out of the airlock Roberts. I just need you in a quiet place where you won't blurt out something stupid at the wrong time near the wrong watch.
