THE QUOTABLE QUOTE OF THE DAY
_ _ _
* * * * *
Graves are for the living, not the dead. It gives us something to concentrate on instead of the fact that our loved one is rotting under the ground.
Laurell K. Hamilton
Guilty Pleasures was the first book of the Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter series, published in 1993. As well as putting both its protagonist, and its author, Laurell K. Hamilton on the map, it became a catalyst for the growth and popularity of the urban fantasy genre.
Although an eventual, dramatic shift away from its crime fighting roots to become an erotica fest (or porn without plot, depending on your point of view), alienating large numbers of fans in the process, the series remains one of the most popular in the genre, having spawned over twenty books and showing no signs of ending.
Unforgettable quotes of fantasy and science fiction literature. The long and the brief; the funny and the serious; the whimsical and the dramatic.
