26: Roger Zelazny Quote of the Day:For the Thread may wander anywhere and need not have an end...
For the Thread may wander anywhere and need not have an end; the thread has more sides than a sword; the Thread is subtle in its turnings, perhaps infinite in the variations it may play in the labyrinths of doom, destiny, desire. No one, however, can regard every turning of fate from the Valley of Frozen Time. Attempts to do so tend to terminate in madness.
The Context: A description of the extra-dimensional thread Kalifriki uses as a tool and a weapon.
Why I like it: I think Kalifriki of the Thread is a great story, and the last truly memorable creation of Roger Zelazny. I like the fairy tale cadences in the story.
