Re: Article on Ligotti in French Newspaper "Le Monde" Today

Thanks for sharing Aeron! I've only read the translation of The Frolic from the lovely French volume for the moment. It's a strange feeling to read it in my native language after reading it so many times in English... Not the same music, but a lovely music nonetheless.

Re: Article on Ligotti in French Newspaper "Le Monde" Today

Cover art, title page, table of contents and the first three pages of Petits Jeux/The Frolic, here.

My French is far from perfect, but the Le Monde article, especially the second part, seems very vague, no? Anyway, should not look a gift horse in the mouth.

Who is Brussolo? Does he really merit inclusion along with Lovecraft and Ligotti as a lyricist of horror? I have never heard of him before.

Re: Article on Ligotti in French Newspaper "Le Monde" Today

Now I wish I knew French. Google Translate it is, then.

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.

Brussolo is a french writer of more than 100 genre novels. I never got around sampling any of them. One that seems interesting is a medieval story where a locked up monk rells about a pelgrimage that went very wrong, he thinks that the devil was involved.
