Timothy Jarvis

Since his name is bound to come up again at some point I thought it might be an idea to start a thread on Timothy Jarvis. His debut novel The Wanderer, or at least some of the episodic sub-sections within it, have a very Ligottian aesthetic to them (the whole is more of a Hodgesonian romp). He is also responsible for a series of article on modern writers at The Weird Fiction Review as I'm sure many of you have seen.

Wanderer, The || Perfect Edge || Book Info

Overall his work is sometimes over-exuberant in style but none-the-less representative of that non-visceral, philosophical strand of Weird Fiction which has seen so much development in recent years. Doubtlessly we shall be seeing more of it in the future.

Re: Timothy Jarvis

I received a copy of The Wanderer last night via the post.

I'm very much looking forward to reading it, but based on my TBR pile, a review will be ready for public consumption sometime just before the heat death of the universe.

Re: Timothy Jarvis

I've started it. Most of the time it rides around in the back seat of my car.

Re: Timothy Jarvis

I've started reading this in earnest, and I'm enjoying it very much.

Re: Timothy Jarvis

I just finished reading this novel today. I cannot recommend it enough; fantastical, imaginative, arcane, Lovecraftian, nightmarish, apocalyptic, darkly comical, sepulchral, demonic, Ligottian, Burroughsian, Borgesian, erudite, grotesque, metafictional, Lynchian, visionary, surrealistic, feverish. A diabolic love letter to wyrd fiction and those haunted men and women who have peered underneath the veil that masks the Unknown. What really happened to Bierce in Mexico? What was the truth surrounding Leonora Carrington in a madhouse in Madrid? What is the reality behind Austin Osman Spare's chimeric, occult paintings? Did William Hope Hodgson really outmatch a diabolical immortal? And is Thomas Ligotti truly jaded when it comes to viewing otherworld horrors? Is Timothy J. Jarvis, himself, a cursed individual? Are we all cursed? That's the way to do it!

Let us admit...the hallucinatory nature of the world. Let us...seek unrealities which confirm that nature.
-- Jorge Luis Borges

Re: Timothy Jarvis

I read THE WANDERER and loved it. It stayed in my head like a virus. That is how I know that book is worthy of the time one spends with it. So it merits re-reading and the anticipation of a new Timothy Jarvis work.
