Re: Ligotti Publication News

Well, it seems that after True Detective proved plagiarism was cool, everyone is doing it too. But, to be fair, this seems to be a mock cover and nothing else (at least, I hope so).

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.

Re: Ligotti Publication News

Well, it seems the hideous cover could be the definitive one. I found this online:

Re: Ligotti Publication News

And... this definitively is the cover for the Spanish edition of TCATHR. What the hell were they thinking? They ripped off a goddamn movie poster!

Re: Ligotti Publication News

Someone at Valdemar's facebook page asked if that was seriously the cover, because "that's clearly just the poster of Dead Silence." Valdemar's reply: "And what's wrong with that?"

Excuse me while I sob in a corner somewhere.

Re: Ligotti Publication News

The worst thing about that cover is that it makes the book seem to be one of those terrible, cheap and disposable horror books so common these days (and in the past too), and not at all related to Thomas Ligotti's work or his brand of horror. It is totally disrespectful.

Fox example, Dead Silence was produced by the same people responsible (or guilty) of the Saw franchise. 'Nuff said.

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.

Re: Ligotti Publication News

I have just read the Valdemar comments on Facebook and there are a lot of them dissing this cover; nice to see there still is some common sense. I left a comment saying the same I said here.

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.
