“'Please, before you are led to think that his was merely a sentimental attachment, however perverse, let me say that it was no such thing. His feelings with respect to the sanitarium were in fact quite incredible, owing to the manner in which he had used his authority at that place. I found out about this when I was still very young, but not so young that I could not understand the profound conflict that existed between my father and grandfather. I disregarded my parents' admonitions that I not spend too much time with the old man, succumbing to the mystery of his presence. And one afternoon he revealed himself.

'He was gazing through the window and never once turned to face me. But after we had sat in silence for some time, he started to whisper something. "They questioned," he said. "They accused. They complained that no one in that place ever became well." Then he smiled and began to elaborate. "What things had they seen," he hissed, "to give them such... wisdom? They did not look into the faces," no, he did not say "faces" but "eyes." Yes, he said, "... did not look into the eyes of those beings, the eyes that reflected the lifeless beauty of the silent, staring universe itself."

'Those were his words. And then he talked about the voices of the patients under his care. He whispered, and I quote, that "the wonderful music of those voices spoke the supreme delirium of the planets as they go round and round like bright puppets dancing in the blackness." In the wandering words of those lunatics, he told me, the ancient mysteries were restored.'”
Thomas Ligotti - “Dr. Locrian's Asylum”

Ligotti panel at NecronomiCon Providence 2017

This sounds spectacular! A panel at NecronomiCon Providence 2017:

Saturday, August 19 – 4:30-5:45pm
TEATRO GROTTESCO: The Bleak Universe of Thomas Ligotti – Grand Ballroom, Biltmore 17th Floor
Thomas Ligotti embraces the themes and moods of Lovecraft, Schulz, Cioran and others, and emerged from the shadow of these literary heirs to become one of the most powerful voices in Weird fiction. In this panel we discuss the bleak and pessimistic universe his work evokes, as well as works crafted by writers who count him among their influences.
Panelists: Matthew Bartlett, Michael Calia, Michael Cisco, Kurt Fawver, Alex Houstoun (Moderator), Jon Padgett

Ligotti Panel at StokerCon
Apr 22, 2017 - 2:30 PM - by Nicole Cushing
A week from today (Saturday, April 29) at 2:00 p.m., there will be a panel at StokerCon titled "Thomas Ligotti and the Nightmare of Living".

S.T. Joshi, Ted Grau, and I will be discussing Tom's work aboard the Queen Mary. (A former luxury liner permanently docked in Long Beach, CA.) The panel will be in the Regent Room. Would love to see some TLO folks there.
