“He is still kneeling before the coffin as his features begin to undergo the ravages of various, obviously conflicting, phases of feeling. Eyes, mouth, the whole facial structure is called upon to perform gruesome acrobatics of expression. Ultimately an impossible task is relieved or avoided by laughter: the liberating laughter of an innocent derangement, of a virgin madness. Voke rises to his feet by the powers of his idiotic hilarity. He begins to move about in a weird dance - hopping and bouncing and bobbing. His laughter grows worse as he gyres aimlessly, and his gestures become more convulsive. Through complete lack of attention, or perhaps by momentarily regaining it, Voke makes his way out of the loft and is now laughing into the dark abyss beyond the precarious railing at the top of the crooked stairway. His final laugh seems to stick in his throat; he goes over the railing and falls without a sound, his baggy clothes flapping uselessly.

Thus the screams you now hear are not those of the plummeting Voke. Neither are they the screams of Cheev, who is long gone, nor the supernatural echoes of Prena and Lamm’s cries of horror. These screams, the ones from beyond the door at the top of the stairs, belong only to a dummy who now feels warm drops of blood sliding thickly over his lacquered cheeks, and who has been left - alone and alive - in the shadows of an abandoned loft. And his eyes are rolling like mad marbles.”

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!
