Re: Recent Reading

Frater Tsalal,

Another one you might like if you haven't already read it, is Thomas Karlsson's "Qabalah, Qliphoth, and Goetic Magic." It deals with the same themes as "Nightside of Eden", though I would say it's a better book. Unfortunately, it's around 200 hundred dollars on Amazon, so you probably want to wait for a better deal somewhere. (I would certainly pay 50 dollars for it.)

Alan Moore's Providence. Mindblowing.

Your fall should be like the fall of mountains. But I was before mountains. I was in the beginning, and shall be forever. The first and the last. The world come full circle. I am not the wheel. I am the hand that turns the wheel. I am Time, the Destroyer. I was the wind and the stars before this. Before planets. Before heaven and hell. And when all is done, I will be wind again, to blow this world as dust back into endless space. To me the coming and going of Man is as nothing.

Re: Recent Reading

Usually I read more than one book, four or five at a time. Right now I am reading Nabokov's Lolita, TL's corporate horror stories, My Work Is Not Yet Done, the anthology, Lovecraft"s Monsters, and Alan Moore's Providence (YEEES! Very mind-blowing!). The combination is like a strong shot of fiery brandy.

Re: Recent Reading

So Hell-Ghost on the Favorite Lovecraft thread deserves credit for this. Anyone want to go with me on what was the last thing (hopefully emphasis on the Weird or Fantastic) you read at the end of the Old Year?

Mine: Mark Samuels "The Face of Twilight." Awesomely awesome story.

Re: Recent Reading

Hodgson's The Haunted Jarvee would have been the last thing I read on New Year's Eve. I quite enjoyed it and liked how Carnacki didn't seem to be able to fully rationalise the events of the story.

Re: Recent Reading

I just finished a wonderful book called "The River Through the Trees", by David Peak. I don't know if David Peak has been mentioned here before, but this guy is good, and will likely appeal to TLO readers. Overall, "The River through the Trees" is the best thing I've read in two years. Peak has another book called "The Spectacle of the Void" which I haven't read yet, though I have paged through it, and it looks rather interesting.

Re: Recent Reading

On New Year's Eve I finished reading The Green Man by Kinsgley Amis. The most memorable thing about the novel was Michael Dirda's introduction, which included lengthy excerpts from M. R. James on the craft of the ghost story, as well as an amusing but hypothetical anecdote concerning Robert Aickman, whom Dirda calls "the finest writer of 'strange stories' in the second half of the twentieth century."

The first book I opened on New Year's Day was Moravagine by Blaise Cendrars.
