I’ve officially jumped into science fiction!
“I may have given the impression that boot camp was made harder than necessary. This is not correct.
It was made as hard as possible and on purpose.
It was the firm opinion of every recruit that this was sheer meanness, calculated sadism, fiendish delight of witless morons in making other people suffer.”
– Starship Troopers by Robert A. Heinlein, page 45
“Panting, he swallowed hard, his heart still racing; his face drained as he gently touched his hand to his neck and brought away blood on the tips of his trembling fingers.
‘Oh, my God!’ he whispered. The cut wasn’t deep, he could tell that, no more than a scratch, and yet…
He backed up a few steps in shock, still holding the lit lighter, and knowing the steps were behind him, he collapsed upon one of them. His whole body was quivering.”
– Vampire Blood by Kathryn Meyer Griffith, page 168
A recent trip to a local used bookstore added these to my collection. I got a ton of books. Like 30 (but I spent less than 40 bucks, so hey…). Anywho, that second book is from the Zebra Horror collection that I love so much. Happy I found these!
