15: Roger Zelazny Quote of the Day: ... a thing I suspect to be malignant though not a tumor.
I am standing in front of Vindy's and cannot read the racing stix because of the brownout which is the worst I can remember, when Crash Callahan comes by and the light is not so bad that I cannot see the bulge beneath his racing jacket, a thing I suspect to be malignant though not a tumor.
The Context: The nameless narrator of Deadboy Donner and the Filstone Cup is opening the story.
Why I like it: Because Roger Zelazny wrote a story in the voice of Damon Runyon, and it is pretty much the best thing ever.
