“Having absorbed or destroyed every one of its competitors, OneiriCon begins to deteriorate. It is then that its Governing Executives conspire to create a number of puppet entities which would provide a degree of competition for the organization, thus reinfusing its lower-level executives and other conflict-driven personnel with a sense of purpose and staving off total degeneration. (The majority of OneiriCon's employees - the billions of AL's and even greater numbers of EU's - have existed in a benign dream state for so long that they seemed to require no external stimuli of any kind, although this remained a matter of debate among the organization's scientists, who are highly adept at providing themselves with trumped-up mysteries and challenges.) For a time Project Puppetcorps succeeds admirably, and some of the artificial corporate entities do quite well in the marketplace, or what is left of it. In the end, however, they too are absorbed or destroyed by OneiriCon. Unable to reconcile themselves to the prospect of terminal stagnancy for an organization that has always subsisted on the principle of ceaseless growth, many of the Governing Executives voluntarily submit to devolutionary brain surgery and afterward join the ranks of Noncon AL's. Others have themselves transported to the distant past, where they become slaves of a society governed by automatons, thus affording their competitive spirits new objects of resistance and a low point of orientation from which they can once again work their way to the top.”

Near the end of a recent blog post, Jeff VanderMeer made brief mention of working on an introduction to a forthcoming Ligotti reprint for Penguin Classics. Exciting!

"Drink to Me Only with Labyrinthine Eyes" on Pseudopod.org
Apr 17, 2015 - 7:50 AM - by Dr. Locrian
The grand finale of the Ligotti-fest over at Pseudopod has arrived with an audio version of the Ligotti's own, "Drink to Me Only with Labyrinthine Eyes."

I haven't yet had a chance to listen to it, but the Pseudopod productions (and narrators) are uniformly superb, and of course I have no doubts about the quality of the writing!

While you're over there, be sure to check out the excellent Ligotti-related tale, "The Influence Of Thomas Glittio," by Arthur Staaz and my own "20 Simple Steps to Ventriloquism."

When you're done, be sure to head over to the official Pseudopod forum and share your thoughts about the stories. The Ligotti thread has not been created yet, but it will be in the next couple of days.
