“Curiosity did not kill the cat all by itself.”
― Laird Barron, The Imago Sequence and Other Stories

 “Brush snapped. The stag shambled forth from the outer darkness. It loomed above Scobie, its fur rank and steaming. Black blood oozed from gashes along its flanks. Beneath a great jagged crown of antlers its eyes were black, its teeth yellow and broken. Scobie fell to his knees, palms raised in supplication. The stag nuzzled his matted hair and its long tongue lapped at the muddy tears and the streaks of drying blood upon the man’s upturned face. Its muzzle unhinged. The teeth closed and there was a sound like a ripe cabbage cracking apart.”
― Laird Barron, The Beautiful Thing That Awaits Us All

“When I was six, I discovered a terrible truth: I was the only human being on the planet. I was the seed and the sower and I made myself several seconds from the event horizon at the end of time – at the x before time began. Indeed, there were six billion other carbon-based sapient life forms moiling in the earth, but none of them were the real McCoy. I’m the real McCoy. The rest? Cardboard props, marionettes, grist for the mill. After I made me, I broke the mold under my heel.”
― Laird Barron, The Beautiful Thing That Awaits Us All

 “For they were the stuff of nightmares; maggoty abominations possessed of incalculable and vile intellect that donned flesh and spines of men and beasts to shield themselves from the sun and enable themselves to walk upright instead of merely slithering.”
― Laird Barron, The Croning

― Laird Barron, The Imago Sequence and Other Stories

 “Everyone is looking for the answer. They do not want to find the answer, trust me. Unfortunately, the answer will find them. Life—it’s like one of those unpleasant nature documentaries. To be the cameraman instead of the subjects, eh?”
― Laird Barron, The Imago Sequence and Other Stories

“It’s about walking, or crawling as the case may be, through this messy existence with eyes open. It’s about squeezing a fistful of shit and praying for a diamond.”
― Laird Barron

 “I used to write as an escape. There’s no escape. There’s just me sending my voice into the dark, waiting for an echo.” – Laird Barron”
― Laird Barron

“Enlightenment is its own reward, its own punishment. You begin to see so much more. And so much more sees you.”
― Laird Barron

“The cold impassive stars didn’t bother him so much as the gaps between them did.”
― Laird Barron, The Croning

One Final Bonus – Laird Barron Quote 

“Ye wanna steer clear o’ ‘im and ‘is little friends. Ye shall come to a nasty end nosin’ ’bout that gent.”

The Spy knew the refrain. He wondered aloud as to the nature of these little friends.

“Ain’t ever seen ’em, just ‘eard of ’em. Cripples and deformed ones. Some ain’t got no arms or legs is what I ‘ear. they crawl along behind ‘im, see? Wrigglin’ in the dirt all ruddy worm-like.”

“He’s got an entourage of folk without arms,” the Spy said, raising his brows toward the brim of his cocked hat. “Or legs. Following him wherever he goes.”

“Some got arms, some don’t. Some got legs, some don’t. Some got neither. That’s what I ‘ear.” The farmer shrugged, made the sign of warding again, and would say no more on the matter.”
― Laird Barron, The Croning
