Last week, curt from The Groovy Age of Horror made a great suggestion that I read George Macdonald’s Victorian-era horror novel Lilith since she is a central character in my horror manuscript. My novel uses several characters from Victorian literature and it would be easy enough to make a few changes as a nod to George Macdonald’s classic. Today’s thought for today from a spiritual site I subscribe to was this:
Annihilation itself is no death to evil. Only good where evil was, is
evil dead. An evil thing must live with its evil until it chooses to be
good. That alone is the slaying of evil.

I do not want to give any spoilers to my manuscript, but I got a chill down my spine reading that quote.
