“When the world goes gray on its way to white, every living heart summons us with its fear; and, if circumstances are favorable, we will answer. We take as many as we can back to the grave with us, because that is our task. Our senseless cycle is out of nature's season: we go our own way, deviates of matter longing to bring an end to the charade of all seasons, natural or supernatural.”

TLO HSP Restriction
Aug 06, 2014 - 9:03 PM - by Dr. Bantham
It appears that TLO is either being attacked or is simply demanding a high level of resources from the Host Service Provider and the account has been restricted. The latter case does not make sense given the current traffic trends. I have reached out to technical support but the initial warning message I received was very ominous and the account is in jeopardy of suspension. I will make every effort to resolve the issue with the HSP, but I do have a backup of the site secured in the event of a worst-case scenario. If the site should be taken down at any point, don't panic and check back periodically. I have previously invested in a new version of vBulletin, but have been putting off the migration due to the incredible effort applied in the past relative to custom modifications. If necessary, I will abandon the frills in an effort to embrace stability.

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 - 4:53 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!
