stewart on being haunted

Posted by rigorousm on July 11, 2015

You can’t deal with all that need, all that grief. Even me, I try to stay uninvolved. Because if you start noticing, where does it stop? There’s rivers of grief out there, floods of it. You’d drown. Anybody would.

But I think once the first ghost catches you, others can feel it. They can find you. We’re alive; we burn like candles in their darkness. Even the blind ones come groping for our heat.

— Sean Stewart, Perfect Circle, p 128.
