“It was something black and twisted into the form of a man, something that seemed to have come up from the earth and grown over the wooden planks like a dark fungus, consuming the structure. There were now black legs that hung as if charred and withered; there was a head that sagged like a sack of ashes upon a meager body of blackness; and there were thin arms stretched out like knobby branches from a lightning-scorched tree. All of this was supported by a thick dark stalk which rose out of the earth and reached into the effigy like a hand into a puppet.”
Thomas Ligotti - “The Shadow at the Bottom of the World”

Guardian Review of SOADD and Grimscribe
Jun 30, 2016 - 11:19 AM - by Arthur Staaz

Excellent review.

"These may not be horror stories at all, but more like evil little mantras, leading you into dark, half-conscious speculations about the frailty of human identity and purpose."

Vastarien: A Literary Journal Is Open for Submissions
May 18, 2016 - 1:29 PM - by Arthur Staaz

Vastarien. The forbidden tome – an entryway into “…a place where everything was transfixed in the order of the unreal… Each passage he entered in the book both enchanted and appalled him with images and incidents so freakish and chaotic that his usual sense of these terms disintegrated along with everything else. Rampant oddity seemed to be the rule of the realm; imperfection became the source of the miraculous – wonders of deformity and marvels of miscreation. There was horror, undoubtedly. But it was a horror uncompromised by any feeling of lost joy or thwarted redemption; rather, it was a deliverance by damnation. And if Vastarien was a nightmare, it was a nightmare transformed in spirit by the utter absence of refuge: nightmare made normal.”

Editor-in-Chief Matt Cardin and Senior Editors Jon Padgett, Brian Poe and Kevin Moquin are pleased to announce that Vastarien: A Literary Journal is now open for submissions. Vastarien aspires to be a source of critical study and creative response to the corpus of Thomas Ligotti, as well as associated authors and creative work. We plan to do this through scholarly and critical works of nonfiction, literary horror fiction, poetry and artwork. Please visit our website for more information. And stay tuned for more news as we review submissions and head toward a launch date.
