Re: Born to Fear: Interviews with Thomas Ligotti nominated for a World Fantasy Award!

An excellent tome - highly worthy of award - this work throws much light - or rather a sharper definition to the en-shadowing that encompasses, infiltrates and emanates from Thomas Ligotti's work. Congratulations!

Re: Born to Fear: Interviews with Thomas Ligotti nominated for a World Fantasy Award!

Both it and The Thomas Ligotti reader are essential reading for anyone who really wants insight into one of the most creative and unique thinkers/writers of our time, in my opinion. Everything you ever wanted to know (almost) about the man but were afraid to ask...

Re: Born to Fear: Interviews with Thomas Ligotti nominated for a World Fantasy Award!

Congratulations, Matt. This is great news and I bet Thomas is delighted, if such an adjective can apply to him. I believe this will help to improve the public awareness about his work.

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: Born to Fear: Interviews with Thomas Ligotti nominated for a World Fantasy Award!

Thanks to all for the warm and enthusiastic response to this development. I was completely unaware that the book was even being considered, so it was quite a shock when Jon sent an email alerting me to its appearance on the just-released list of nominees.

I think the nomination is surely more for Tom than for me -- and rightly so.
