I got an email from a subcontractor this week. I get many emails from subcontractors. Generally, they'll have a signature line that includes contact information, or the name of their company. This one, however, said simply:

"That's actually the best thing about fiction."
"What, that you can create these little people and jack up their lives?"
"Um, YEAH. Outside of the book, I can only ruin my OWN life. Inside it? I'm like Godzilla rampaging over an unsuspecting urban setting."
"Sometimes I find you mildly disturbing. You know that, right?"
