“It is that sinister enchantment which derives from a profound evil that is kept at just the right distance from us so that we may experience both our love and our fear of it in one sweeping sensation. Too close and we may be reminded of an omnipresent evil in the living world, and threatened with having our sleeping sense of doom awakened into full vigor. Too far away and we become even more incurious and complacent than is our usual state, and ultimately exasperated when an imaginary evil is so poorly evoked that it fails to offer the faintest echo of its real and all-pervasive counterpart. Of course, any number of locales may serve as the setting to reveal ominous truths; evil, beloved and menacing evil, may show itself anywhere precisely because it is everywhere and is as stunningly set off by a foil of sunshine and flowers as it is by darkness and dead leaves.”

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?
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!
