Reality check

The Artdog Quote of the Week 

Stephen King hands us another one this week, a little thought-provoker that I’d like to pair with a second thought from Clive Barker:

Coping mechanism

The Artdog Quote of the Week 

What is the fascination of horror fiction? As we move toward Halloween I thought it might be fun to explore thoughts on why so many of us love to be scared by fictional horrors.

And where better to start than with a quote from the King of Horror himself?

IMAGE: Many thanks to all the many, many, many (many, manyMANY) Pinterest boards that feature this quote image–so many, I found 22,300,000 matches, and ran out of time to track down the original source. I found this particular file on Stephanie Girolami-James’s board, via Chelsie Bowen’s HORROR Pinboard.

Revealed Truth

The Artdog Quote(s) of the Week

Since my zany schedule cheated us out of quotes earlier this month, here is a second pair of quotes to kind of “even things out.” Separate centuries, parallel thoughts by well-respected writers. I hope you enjoy them!
