Dark Deceiver (39)
“For a number of nights my dreams remained somewhat anemic and continued to present only the palest characters and scenes. Thus, they had been rendered too weak to use me as they had before, seizing, as they did, the contents of my life - my memories and emotions, all the paraphernalia of a private history - and working them in their way, giving form to things that had none of their own and thereby exhausting my body and soul. Mrs. Rinaldi's theory of these parasites that have been called dreams was therefore accurate... as far as it went. But she had failed to consider, or perhaps refused to acknowledge, that the dreamer on his part draws something from the dream, gaining a store of experience otherwise impossible to obtain, hoarding the grotesque or banal enigmas of the night to try and fill out the great empty spaces of the day. And my dreams had ceased to perform this function, or at least were no longer adequate to my needs - that appetite I had discovered in myself for banqueting on the absurd and horrible, even the perfectly evil. It was this deprivation, I believe, which brought about the change in the nature of my dreaming.”

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.

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 - 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!
