Quote: Harlan Ellison

I have a feverish fascination with a book’s opening lines. I think the best pieces of writing in print (and certainly online) win the attention and trust of their reader with just a few opening lines, and those lines…the ones I love anyway, set a mood, scene, attitude, and conversational tone with such brilliant concreteness that you immediately feel as if the author is in the room speaking to you.
