Re: Quirk Classics

"Our Temporary Supervisor of the Waste Land" by Thomas Ligotti and T. S. Eliot.

"What does it mean to be alive except to court disaster and suffering at every moment?"

Tibet: Carnivals?
Ligotti: Ceremonies for initiating children into the cult of the sinister.
Tibet: Gas stations?
Ligotti: Nothing to say about gas stations as such, although I've always responded to the smell of gasoline as if it were a kind of perfume.

And The Beatles collaborated with Edgar Allan Poe on their joint album Sergeant Pepper's Tell-Tale Hearts Club Band.

This is not, of course, to be confused with the Beatles/M R James collaboration Sergeant Pepper's Lost Hearts Club Band.
