Topic Winner Thomas Ligotti Online - Seventeenth 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!

We're forever in your debt, good Dr. If not for you're efforts over these seventeen years, we would have neither the privilege nor the pleasure of calling this small isle of misfits our virtual home.

We really love you Jon, and you don't deserve all the grief we put you through. Well, me and my trouble-making, anyway.

Re: Thomas Ligotti Online - Seventeenth Anniversary

Ye gods! I had forgotten! Thanks, everyone

And many thanks to Dr. Bantham's brilliant design and work. You literally made TLO what it is today.

This is certainly the most exciting year of TLO I can remember. And I'm humbled by the breadth and depth of our members' knowledge and insight. This is a community the likes of which I could've never imagined all those years ago.

Finally, thanks to Ligotti himself as always. So pleased the literary world is beginning to truly recognize the singular brilliance of the man and his work.

Re: Thomas Ligotti Online - Seventeenth Anniversary

Both Dr.'s deserve all this gratitude and more for creating and maintaining this brilliant little community. As does Thomas Ligotti, who is seldom seen but ever present, ever permeating every thread and thought expressed in this forum (most of them, at least). Hats off to you gentlemen.

Re: Thomas Ligotti Online - Seventeenth Anniversary

A big THANK YOU to all those who maintain and run TLO. I found it to be a place where I could say things I wasn't able to share with anyone else offline or online, and for that I am extremely and eternally grateful. Happy birthday!

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.
