“And at that moment I was sure that I was still living in some way--that even if I was not entirely alive, neither was I wholly dead. Somehow I was caught in between these two worlds--caught in a place where I had made a rare connection with that Great Black Swine, that thrashing and vicious blackness which flowed like a river through every living thing, and possibly in the spaces around everything that lived, allowing me to be wherever the blackness flowed, to become one with this agitated force that was everywhere and inside everything, that moved and manipulated all the created life of this world and gave me the power to move and manipulate things according to my will, which was nevertheless only the lower-case will of an isolated being--a cockroach elevated to human form, a small swirling of that flowing blackness that was as great and enduring as the world itself, that was the secret face of the living world, the shadow within all life, the thing that would live on and on as each one of us died our deaths alone. Because whatever life we had was only its life, and when our bodies, our cockroach bodies, became too damaged to accommodate it... this blackness flowed away, leaving behind a dead vine, a bug's crushed carapace, or a human corpse--things that had no life of their own, nothing real at all about them.”
Thomas Ligotti - “My Work Is Not Yet Done”

Ligotti Publication News
Nov 04, 2014 - 11:52 AM - by Dr. Locrian

Il Saggiatore, an Italian publishing house, has offered to publish Italian translations of Teatro Grottesco, The Spectral Link and The Conspiracy Against the Human Race.

The Saggiatore publications are still officially tentative, but the deal is in the works.

From Thomas Ligotti:
"Also, a translation of Teatro Grottesco is going to be published in Poland. That’s definite, as is the Italian Grimscribe publication, the French collection, and the Serbian translation of My Work Is Not Yet Done. A large collection of my stories was published in Sweden, if I never mentioned that. The Spanish publisher Valdemar, which published Noctuary, is also going to issue translations of Grimscribe and The Conspiracy Against the Human Race."
This is all exciting news, and we'll keep you informed with more details as we get them.

Did the writer of “True Detective” plagiarize Thomas Ligotti and others?

Did the writer of “True Detective” plagiarize Thomas Ligotti and others?
by Mike Davis

Like many fans of weird fiction, I was overjoyed to discover HBO's True Detective. But as the season progressed, I became increasingly uneasy. It seemed to me that True Detective writer Nic Pizzolatto was "borrowing" words and phrasing from other authors, especially Thomas Ligotti. Recently, I expressed my concerns on one of the Lovecraft eZine video shows […]

New TLO Exclusive Interview -- "Vital Realities: A Conversation with Thomas Ligotti"
Jul 23, 2014 - 5:53 PM - by Dr. Locrian
Hey there, folks. Well, thanks to the patience and labor of Tom Ligotti himself, we have a new interview to consume--and it's over 5,000 words of riveting material which covers Tom's literary revitalization via physical and emotional trauma, a look at "Metaphysica Morum" from the inside out, and Ligotti's opinion on what makes for a good (and bad) interview.

Click here to read it.

Thanks again for your time and effort, Tom!
