Thomas Ligotti Online - Fifteenth Anniversary

On February 4th, 1998, Jon Padgett (aka Dr. Locrian) 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 surgeon's cap to you, Jon!

I can't believe I've been visiting this pit of despair for fifteen years. Here's to fifteen more!

Re: Thomas Ligotti Online - Fifteenth Anniversary

Nomis has been here fifteen, I've been here eight... there is something almost surreal about this fact, the more that I think about it.

A toast to this wonderful site. To repeat the proffered sentiment with slight modification: Here's to fifteen more years of mad, miserable mirth!

"And into his dreams he fell...and forever."

And to think: a number of us -- nomis included, I believe -- have even been here (as it were) since before TLO was formally founded. Quite a few of us migrated to TLO from the previous Ligotti watering hole, the newsgroup alt.books.thomas-ligotti, which was also founded by Jon, and which was very active for a year or so before -- and also for a year or two after -- Jon went on to enact his master plan of creating a Ligotti Website.

The perpetual passing of time while the present moment stays eternally present constitutes one of life's central numinous mysteries, and I concur with you wholeheartedly that there's a distinctly surreal feeling surrounding the recognition that TLO is now, in the time scale of the online hyperworld, authentically venerable.
