1 Quotation from Stanley Ellin

Venusian n. 2 1982 S. Ellin Under Financial Duress in Whodunit? 82 [T]here always seems to come a day when I must descend to reality and actually put some of those words on paper. And, in so doing, must recognize yet again that I was born with a faulty connection between mind and hand, something which suggests that I have been thinking those marvellous tales in Venusian, a language notoriously untranslatable into English. Willy-nilly, I must press forward with that translation, becauseโ€”to descend into the grossly mundaneโ€”I put words on paper only under financial duress.
