Classics of western literature av Berkeley Breathed

Now wait for last year av Philip K. Dick

Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and philosophers of today - but the core of science fiction, its essence has become crucial to our salvation if we are to be saved at all.
Isaac Asimov

'Wonderful ... a heady mix of Flann O'brien, Douglas Adams, Tom Sharpe and Ken Campbell, but with an inbuilt irreverence and indelicacy that is unique - and makes it the long-awaited, heavy smoker's answer to The Lord of the Rings'
Time Out om Robert Rankin

The future is here. It's just not widely distributed yet.
William Gibson

The three-legged stool of understanding is held up by history, languages, and mathematics. Equipped with these three you can learn anything you want to learn. But if you lack any one of them you are just another ignorant peasant with dung on your boots.
Robert Heinlein

'An urban myth. Like the dyslexic devil worshipper who sold his soul to Santa.' - Robert Rankin (Raiders of the Lost Car Park))

The H. P. Lovecraft Studies Weblog

En riktig god blog om Lovecrafts litterære verk. Han plukker også frem dette sitatet fra ST Joshi:

I no longer have any interest in much of the nuts-and-bolts work that takes up so much time in Lovecraft scholarship. . . . [U]nless some broader conclusion is made, it is all so much useless intellectual baggage — and brings us no closer to what Lovecraft's stories are really about. Whereas mainstream critics must struggle to absorb Lovecraft's letters and essays to understand the fiction, it may be advisable for the inner circle of Lovecraft scholars momentarily to forget this body of peripheral material and read again the stories as stories

Joshi er den fremste Lovecraft-akademikeren. Han har blant annet skrevet den definitive biografien: HP Lovecraft. A Life.
