„Gene police! You! Out of the pool, now!“

—  Charles Stross, The Atrocity Archives

Источник: The Atrocity Archives

„He stabs at the mouse mat with one finger and I wince. But instead of fat purple sparks and a hideous soul-sucking manifestation, it simply wakes up his Windows box.“

—  Charles Stross, The Laundry Files

Not that there’s much difference.

„Why are you trying to shoot that cat?“

—  Charles Stross, The Laundry Files

”Because—” I squeeze off another shot “—it’s possessed!”...
Mo turns and looks at me harshly. “That looked just like a perfectly ordinary cat to me. If you’ve—”
“It was possessed by the animation nexus behind JENNIFER MORGUE Two!” I gabble. “The clue—he saw a laser dot and dodged—”
Chapter 16, “Reflex Decision” (p. 329; ellipsis represents a half-page elision)
The Laundry Files, The Jennifer Morgue (2006)

„What if he is a true believer, have you thought about that?“

—  Charles Stross, The Laundry Files

“A true believer in what? The prosperity gospel? New Republican Jesus who rewards his faithful flock for their faith with the ability to make money fast? That’s self-serving cant, and you know it. Wish-fulfillment as religion.” A twitch of the cheek: Persephone unamused. “Don’t get me started on the gap between the Vatican and their flock.”
Chapter 7, “Communion” (p. 125)
The Laundry Files, The Apocalypse Codex (2012)

„Suppose rather than passing the plate in church, they get a radio show and pass the plate and half a million listeners donate. Isn’t that going to convince a preacher that it’s all true? Wealth comes to the faithful, that’s the message they’re going to take. An’ I never yet met a con man who wasn’t the better at the job for believing his own spiel.“

—  Charles Stross, The Laundry Files

“That’s not…untrue. But money corrupts. Almost invariably, powers that arise around money are corrupted by it. He might have started out as a true believer, but money has a way of taking over. A church is a business, after all, and those employees or executives who are good at raising money are promoted by their fellows.”
Chapter 7, “Communion” (p. 126)
The Laundry Files, The Apocalypse Codex (2012)

„I’m thinking on the fly, here.“

—  Charles Stross, The Laundry Files

Although now that I’m in middle management I think I’m supposed to call it “refactoring the strategic value proposition in real time with agile implementation,” or, if I’m being honest, “making it up as I go along.”
Chapter 9, “Speaking in Tongues” (p. 180)
The Laundry Files, The Apocalypse Codex (2012)
