Mr Catch (49)
“'And we may be among those in paradise, this is the great news I bring to you tonight. We may take our place among the puppets, as the tableau you see before you will serve to demonstrate. For at the moment there are certain faces insinuated within this elect company that do not... belong, that stand out in an unpleasant way. How to bring them into the fold is the question. And the answer, if you will turn for a moment and direct your eyes toward the balcony, the answer - spotlight!- is the puppet machine.'

Turning their heads as instructed, the audience saw the object which, under the sharp spotlight, seemed to be resting on nothing, as if secured to the darkness itself. Some of the more observant members of the audience noticed the shining waxen faces whose eyes looked back at them from within the bizarre contraption. Set in motion by the remote control device in Dr. Haxhausen's coat pocket, the machine noisily elevated its stovepipe neck and pointed its single, iridescent eye at the figures upon the stage.

'Ladies and gentlemen, I mentioned earlier that winter is the sacred state of things, the season of the soul. But that is not to say that the definitive winter we are approaching will be without all the colors of the rainbow. For it is the frigid aurora of the Sacred Ray, the very eye of the Creator, that will bring about the wondrous conversion of all things. As you can see, the design is His own. And, by means of modern assembly techniques, a sufficient quantity may be produced to serve the world, bathing every one of us in the garish radiance of our destiny.'”
Thomas Ligotti - “Mad Night of Atonement”

Miskatonic Musings Podcast Ligotti Episode
Apr 15, 2014 - 4:07 PM - by Nicole Cushing
I was recently the guest on an episode of the relatively new podcast Miskatonic Musings. The topic was Thomas Ligotti. (It was essentially, a "Ligotti 101" sort of episode, designed for the newbie, but I thought I'd post info about it here, too, in case anyone was interested in the discussion).

Here's a linky-link, for those interested.
