“'Even the most esoteric ecstasy, when it comes down to it, requires the prop of vulgar pain in order to stand up as an experience. Having acknowledged the truth, however provisional, and the reality, if subject to mutation, of all the strange things in the universe - whether known, unknown, or merely suspected - one is left with no recourse than to conclude that none of them makes any difference, that such marvels change nothing: our experience remains the same. The gallery of human sensations that existed in prehistory is identical to the one that faces each life today, that will continue to face each new life as it enters this world... and then looks beyond it.'”

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?
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!
