Fevre Dream by George R. R. Martin
For a long moment he did not know which it would be, whether Joshua would take the bottle or tear open the veins in his wrist. "We all got to make our [GD] choices, Joshua," he said softly, in the grip of Joshua's strong fingers.

Fevre Dream by George R. R. Martin
She went flying right on out ahead of the Southerner, and when she was safely clear of her Kitch eased her right in front of the other steamer's bow, leaving them to ride her waves.  All those worthless berthless pilots were chuckling and passing around smokes and yapping about what a heller of a boat this Fevre Dream was, while the Southerner receded behind them and Abner Marsh grinned like a fool.

Teaser Tuesday post for 27 January 2015
from ‘Salem’s Lot by Stephen King

'Salem's Lot by Stephen KingAnd in the awful heavy silence of the house, as he sat impotently on his bed with his face in his hands, he heard the high, sweet, evil laugh of a child --

           --and then the sucking sounds.

Teaser Tuesday post for 30 September 2014:

Children of the Night by Dan Simmons“Kat,” he had said, “the bad news is what my daddy taught me –namely, a good big guy can always beat the shit out of a good little guy.  I’m afraid that even when you get good at all this kicking and gouging stuff, you’ll always be a little guy.”

Teaser Tuesday: Children of the Night (again)

Teaser Tuesday post for 23 September 2014:

Children of the Night by Dan SimmonsShe and O’Rourke said nothing as the motion of the train rocked back and forth and from side to side.  With each motion, their legs touched more fully–first their knees, then the inside of their knees, and finally their thighs–not rubbing against one another of their own volition, but making contact passively, inexorably, insistently, through the gentle rocking of the train.

Teaser Tuesday: The Night Flier (Nightmares & Dreamscapes)

Teaser Tuesday post for 8 July 2014:

Nightmares & Dreamscapes by Stephen King“Oh, I write like a boid,” Dees said, and offered a smile he hoped looked good-humored and warm.  This was an expression he had practiced almost constantly and continued to practice with fair regularity in the bedroom mirror of the New York apartment he called his home, and in the mirrors of the hotels and motels that were really his home.  It seemed to work–Selida McCammon answered it readily enough–but the truth was that Dees had never felt good-humored and warm in his life.

from the The Night Flier to “Nightmares & Dreamscapes” by Stephen King
