|"I do not regard my work as 'fantasy' at
all, except, perhaps, for commercial purposes. I try to depict the
world as I see it...
I care about the literary art, and I know exactly what the Ancients meant by 'the promptings of the Muse'. The stories which I consider to be my most successful came to me as if dictated... The true ghost story is akin to poetry: only in part is it a conscious construction, and when the Muse does not speak, you cannot write it."
