Thomas Ligotti Online - Ninth Anniversary

On February 4th, 1997, Jon Padgett unleashed a horrific vision upon this world. Thomas Ligotti Online was created to champion the greatest living horror/weird fiction writer. Many thanks must be extended to Jon for his initiative and effort to bring the Ligottian world to those receptive - yet hidden within the mindless masses. He has undoubtedly introduced countless readers to Tom's work and hand laid the foundations for the community herein. A tip of the hat to you, Jon!

The coming year will be comprise the tenth year of TLO, the span of which shall hereto be known as the "Mad Decade of Atonement". What is in store for TLO? For starters, the exhaustively detailed and graphic Ligotti bibliography labeled "The Library of Byzantium" will be unveiled. Beyond that, there are many more expansion plans which shall remain secret for now. The end goal is to create massive blasphemy of arcane knowledge which upon reaching a critical mass must implode inwards, thereby creating the first black hole in cyberspace. So mote it be!

I invite members to gather tonight within FlashChat for a "Mad Night of Atonement". Time to leap from that summit of illusion our world has achieved...

For it is modern science itself which will enable us to realize the Creator's dream, and to unrealize all the rest. See for yourselves. Look what is happening to the flesh of these future puppets, and to their eyes: wax and wood and shining glass to replace the sad and cumbersome structures of biology.

Re: Thomas Ligotti Online - Ninth Anniversary

Thank you for all the hard work you've done, sorry I'm late arriving.
I've been a man with books in the dark, wondering if others read them too.

Re: Thomas Ligotti Online - Ninth Anniversary

I tip my hat to you, Jon Padgett. You got things started and you had a dream. That dream has become reality. And I also wish to thank Dr. Bantham for his relentless, hard work and eagerness.

This site is a magical spot--and several members have become as close as family members -- some like brothers, some like sons.

And it all boils down to the initiation of Jon Padgett. I bow. Thank you. Happy 9th anniversary!!

I'm sorry I missed the chat last night. I was watching a dvd, but would have joined if I had known about it.

My story NOWHERE TO GO was published by PS PUBLISHING in a book titled POSTSCRIPTS #14 in England in 2008. Let me know if you've read it. If you'd like to contact me, send me a Private Message.
