Guardian Review of SOADD and Grimscribe



Excellent review.

"These may not be horror stories at all, but more like evil little mantras, leading you into dark, half-conscious speculations about the frailty of human identity and purpose."

Songs of a Dead Dreamer and Grimscribe by Thomas Ligotti review – evil little mantras | Books | The Guardian

"What lay behind me was no longer any normal, familiar life, that everyday life out of which the impulse to pray raises us, with still at the back of our minds that whensoever we wish we can return. A void was behind me. And in front a wall, a wall of darkness." Georges Bernanos, The Diary of a Country Priest

I saw this today, too. And I agree that it's a fine review.

Having laboured for decades in the obscure regions of horror publishing, Ligotti recently joined Morrissey as one of the more surprising living writers to be published as a Penguin Classic. But unlike Morrissey, he may actually deserve the distinction.
Ligotti has outcharmed the charming man.

This is my life. This is my damnation. This is my only regret--that I ever was born.

Re: Guardian Review of SOADD and Grimscribe

Great review. I smiled at the Morrissey mention.

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.
