Fantastical Marvels

“Fantasy, abandoned by reason, produces impossible monsters; united with it, she is the mother of the arts and the origin of marvels.” – Goya (Spanish artist and court painter, 1746-1828.

I don’t know who Goya is but I like the quote. It could be a description for the difference between science fiction and horror writing. Though even horror has to have enough reason to make it seem possible.
