Re: Ruinenlust and Weird Fiction

Today I posted another part:


I plan to eventually prepare ten such compilations/posts, with the next one focusing on Grabiński.

Re: Ruinenlust and Weird Fiction

It turns out I will need to speed up with my compilation as I am running out of spare time and will publish the remaining posts by the end of the week.
I have therefore posted:



Ruinenlust in Weird Fiction #5: Thomas Ligotti

This is a real Ruinenlust orgy.

Re: Ruinenlust and Weird Fiction

That Ramsay tower is a remarkable image, Slawek. It makes me want to lock myself away for a month, draw the curtains, and immerse myself in weird fiction. Ten years ago, when I first discovered TLO, I thought you had great talent as a photographer. If you ever publish a book of photography, I'll be among the first to buy a copy.

Re: Ruinenlust and Weird Fiction

Thank you, Matthew. These are the kindest words I ever heard about my photography. My wife always tells me that I take terrible pictures of people, so I prefer to devote my sessions to photographing books. Maybe I should think about publishing a photographic album for bibliophiles?

Here are two additional compilations:



Ruinenlust in Weird Fiction #7: Joel Lane

There is still one left. This one will be devoted to a Polish writer everyone at TLO should hear about: Wojciech Gunia.

Don't listen to your wife. Who cares about people? Matthew's right: you're very good with books, why not publish a photo book on books? The field's wide open. I'd buy one as well.

BTW, I'm totes jel about those Angerhuber books. They seem to be impossible to get ahold of. I'm only slightly mollified by the fact that I'm not fluent in German.

Thanks, Kevin. I will need to consider this in the future!

Well my German is far from fluent, but it's good enough to appreciate Angerhuber's prose. I know that three years ago Rainfall books was planning to reissue Nocturnal Products, but to no avail. I myself do not even have this collection, so I felt the need to obtain her works in German. Once I am back to blogging later in spring I will be posting some material about her books on Confusion Linguarum. I will make sure to report it in the thread dedicated to her.

Re: Ruinenlust and Weird Fiction

Thank you so much for these articles! I'm glad my appreciation for ruination is shared; your Grabinski article is excellent- I must reread On the Hill of Roses!

Re: Ruinenlust and Weird Fiction

Thanks for reading, Raul. And I appreciate the fact that you posted "The Ruined Grave" when I started the thread. I should be able to find time to read it soon!

I will posting the final part of Ruinenlust over the weekend or early next week. This will be something unique, as it will be a the first English-language short article about Wojciech Gunia and some of his works all in the context of the "pleasure of ruins." Gunia, according to many, is the most important Polish weird fiction author writing today. To miss him on Confusio Linguarum would be a terrible oversight. More about him soon.

Re: Ruinenlust and Weird Fiction

I hope you'll like it! I imitated Markitty and Grabinski and added some of my own interests and neuroses. There's some physical ruination and also some philosophical, linguistic ruination (the main attraction).
