“I have painted it, tried to at least. Oiled it, watercolored it, smeared it upon a mirror which I positioned to rekindle the glow of the real thing. And always in the abstract. Never actual sinking suns in spring, autumn, winter skies; never a sepia light descending over the trite horizon of a lake, not even the particular lake I like to view from the great terrace of my massive old mansion. But these Twilights of mine were not merely abstraction, which after all is just a matter of technique, a method for keeping out the riff-raff of the real world. Other painterly abstractionists may claim that nothing is represented by their canvasses, and probably nothing is: a streak of iodine red is just a streak of iodine red, a patch of flat black equals a patch of flat black. But pure color, pure light, pure lines and their rhythms, pure form in general all means much more than that. The others have only seen their dramas of shape and shade; I - and it is impossible to insist on this too strenuously - I have been there. And my twilight abstractions did in fact represent some reality, somewhere, sometime: a zone formed by palaces of soft and sullen color standing beside seas of scintillating pattern and beneath sadly radiant skies; a zone in which the visitor himself is transformed into a formal essence, a luminous presence, free of substances - a citizen of the abstract.”

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 […]
