The Art of Starving – Sam J. Miller

“That’s one of the more infuriating bugs in the human software.

“Dad tells me the wood is not a place to play. It is a place for business, and it is more powerful than I could ever imagine. He tells me I cannot forget the rules of the wood. There are three. Do not travel from the paths. Do not linger after dark. Do not ignore […]
