“And if it were possible to strip away the scenery that surrounds us, to pull up the landscape of every planet, to rip away the skies and shove away the stars and sun, to tear from ourselves our own flesh and delve deep into our bones, we would find it standing their eternal, the origin of all things visible or invisible, the source of everything that is or can be, this degenerate little town.”
Thomas Ligotti - “This Degenerate Little Town”

LA Review of Books article on Lovecraft and Ligotti
Jan 27, 2016 - 10:45 AM - by Dr. Locrian
Loving the Alien: Thomas Ligotti and the Psychology of Cosmic Horror



Some notable quotes from this remarkable article:

"THE REPUBLICATION by Penguin Classics of Thomas Ligotti’s first two story collections marks the next stage of the ascendance of cosmic horror to the commanding heights of our literary culture."

"While the focus in Lovecraft is always on the alien reality below the appearances, Ligotti is fascinated by the simple capacity of changing appearances to suggest a different reality. He pursues the inhumanist psychology of the process in which appearances come loose from their anchor in the human world."

"Ligotti’s grasp of canonical modernism’s resources for cosmic horror helps explain the fact that his prose is the sharpest and most richly imaged of any in the genre."

"Lovecraft says: There are people who like this kind of thing. Ligotti says: And you are one of them. You who love cosmic horror are one of them, one of us."

Thomas Ligotti Online - Eighteenth Anniversary
Feb 08, 2016 - 10:41 PM - by Dr. Locrian
On February 4th, 1998, TLO was born.

Happy Belated Birthday, Thomas Ligotti Online! Like a doddering, absent-minded father, I had mistakenly thought it was today--not last Thursday.

A heartfelt thank you to Brian Poe (aka Dr. Bantham) for his wonderful design, hosting and administrative prowess and to all the members of TLO past and present for making this an online community that continues to stand the test of time.

Finally, thanks to Thomas Ligotti himself as always. So pleased the literary world is recognizing the singular brilliance of the man and his work.

Here's to eighteen more years of TLO!
