„Read a lot. Expect something big, something exalting or deepening from a book. No book is worth reading that isn't worth re-reading.“

„Now there's a book worth reading.“

—  R. A. Lafferty American writer 1914 - 2002
Context: Those individuals looking from within the SF world may lack, or simply disdain, the linguistic and critical skills needed to begin to reveal that in Lafferty's work there is much more going on than meets the eye. The brave individuals who have attempted to do so have either merely produced fulsome praise or attempted to classify Lafferty's writings on the basis of superficialities (i. e., calling him a surrealist). Lafferty's use of displacement is not unique, but so few writers have consciously attempted the process, and their works are so varied, that there are no unifying articles, no language for the critic with a day job to draw on. Some bright lad or lass (with the appropriate dignifying letters following their names) may read this and look for the method of displacement in H. P. Lovecraft, James Joyce, Robert Pinget, Gilbert Sorrentino, Flann O'Brien, R. A. Lafferty, Howard Waldrop, and R. A. Wilson. Now there's a book worth reading. The astute observer will note that all the names on the list are Irish, saving those which are not. Don Webb, in "R. A. Lafferty: Effective Arcanum" at Revolution Science Fiction http://www.revolutionsf.com/article.php?id=1110
