Primarily what the face stated was, ‘You boys of bitches available! Whatever you assume you can do, I can do worse! So don’t you risk be available in here!’ I had faith in the creatures I conjured; I felt I was of their people; that there was a demon inside me that was finally scarier to that human being outdoors than he might ever be to me – that I belonged on the side of the beasts, and that the side of the beasts was a strong place to be.

This worldview blooms possibly most publicly within the short novel commemorated here, Cabal – a book he has actually referred to as his “hymn of praise to the monstrous” – as well as in its transformation right into the motion picture adaptation, Nightbreed.
