This week, something different. Instead of a single quote, I’m going to give you my out-of-context quotes from World Fantasy Con. I think these are pretty darn funny, and someone has asked for these already, so here we go. As always, feel free to tell me what you think.

“Any novel can be improved with the addition of talking cats.”
Person A: “Revision is a beautiful thing. If you’re a brain surgeon, you don’t get a second chance to get it right.”
Person B: “Not on the same brain, anyway.”
“Where does ‘strangeness’ end and ‘fantasy’ begin?”
“You’re really big on cell phones.”
“When I wrote my sequel, I took breathing into account.”
Question: “How much sex and violence is okay before it’s not YA anymore?”
Answer: “As long as it’s not with animals, you’re okay.”
“I do this personally, on my couch, in my pajamas.”
“Friends don’t let friends use Smashwords.”
“No one expects the oboe solo.”
“I’ve lived with vampires my whole life. (smiles) You know, the guys next door.”
So there you have it: WFC 2012 in a few short quotes. Now don’t you feel like you were there?
