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

Has Thomas Ligotti released a new interview to the Italian magazine Weird Movies?
Here an excerpt: www.weirdmovies.it/il-cantore-delle-ombre-incontro-con-thomas-ligotti.
The interviewer conceals himself under the obvious pseudonym of George Stark and this excerpt, to me, sounds a bit like a collage of previously published interviews. (And, yes, I'm paranoid and somehow diffident toward my fellow countrymen.)

Re: Ligotti Publication News

Here is the Google translation.


Thomas Ligotti (Detroit, born in 1953) is one of the most unique and visionary fantastic contemporary writers, an author who has made the dream of paranoia and guidelines along which to spread the wings of a sick fantasy and hallucinatory. His first anthology of short stories, "The songs of a dreamer died", dates back to 1989, and today is the only work presented organically in Italy in 2007 by the publisher Elara (for the rest, the ground is still nostrana You can find various accounts scattered among the pages of several anthologies). Through titles like "Grimscribe", "Noctuary", "The Nightmare Factory" or "Teatro Grotesque", just to name a few, came to international attention for the originality of his inventions, all he infused with a romanticism and macabre poignant.

Ben disinclined attendance at conventions or television appearances, Ligotti was still happy to grant an exclusive interview Weird Movies.



In such times and in such situations prefers to create his stories?
I write and I've always written stories only when I feel motivated to do so. Most of the time, the source of my inspiration is in something as simple as a picture of an old house, a dream, a phrase, or even a word. I wake up and I start writing immediately. I created the titles "Nethescurial" and "Vasterien" before you even have a story for them. I thought they were evocative words, even if meant nothing in particular. One morning, I woke up, I uttered the words "Gas Station Carnivals", and immediately after I completed the story. I do not know how these securities are translated into other languages, but English has particular connotations, and somehow sinister. At one point I tried to consider how you could translate something I had written. It might sound selfish, as if I expected to be translated, but I found that such rules and restrictions are useful to write works to be ambitious 'travel', so to speak. I think every writer must be selfish to a certain extent. Why you should think that other people might be interested in anything I've written. In reality, you have to be really a kind of maniac to believe such a thing. It's like a musician who practices every day with the assumption that doing this will eventually become a virtuoso of the instrument chosen, although the practice is not often enough. The words and the arrangement of words - and, more importantly, the state of mind that the words convey - are critical in the same way in which melody and harmony are in music. If words are simply letting a plot, no one will want to read the story more than once. Best musical works can listen over and over again. The plot is of course an essential element in a story, but should not be the central element. It is my belief that if a story is marred by the fact that he already knows the ending is not worth the trouble to read it from the beginning. Point. A reader should be fascinated by at least each paragraph, and also by every sentence, every word. Before beginning to write a story, I already have in mind the entire plot from beginning to end. I never wanted to write a story thinking that it was not good, and maybe something more. So, I think that the titles are very important, as they represent the first or the first words that the reader encounters. Most of the authors focus on the first line of their stories, but I think the title is crucial to whet the reader's imagination. I'm used to appuntarmi ideas for my stories on a notebook, but then I discovered that I never used. First, these notes do not transmit what you need to feel motivated to write a story. In my youth, I often felt encouraged to write stories. Getting older, my motivations have become weaker. In part, this has to do with the fact that, story after story, I found myself expressing the same feelings, the same thoughts. Some writers can work with a certain range of feelings and thoughts, as if they were different writers united in one person. I only get a few things to express, as well as my favorite authors. These are, more often than not, writers obsessed with death, the horrors of human existence and atmospheres generally extravagant. Some of these are Vladimir Nabokov, Bruno Schulz, Thomas Bernhard, and various other writers exotic as Dino Buzzati. American authors hardly interested me, with the exception of Poe and Lovecraft ...

Re: Ligotti Publication News

I just noticed that Teatro Grottesco is no longer available for purchase as a Kindle book from Amazon. Fortunately I had already purchased a copy before it was removed. (The paperback is still available, however, and I am happy to say I have that as well.)

Anyone know if this is a fluke or if there is a story there? I went ahead and purchased the Kindle versions of a few other Ligotti titles just in case...
