Topic Winner Exclusive interview and story over at Weird Fiction Review

Hey all. To coincide with the new Penguin release, we're running an interview with Ligotti and a story from Grimscribe, "The Night School." "The Night School" is a personal fav of mine from Ligotti's lesser known stories. I hope you all enjoy it.

Also, we still have some older material from Ligotti you might've missed:

Many thanks David!

Also, apologies to Jeff Coleman, who also posted a link to the interview. I didn't realize that either post needed to be approved by a moderator.

It is a good interview. Tom is surely the most suave and charming depressed man who can be. And he is so funny, as in

Re: Exclusive interview and story over at Weird Fiction Review

I had read references to Ligotti being a Catholic in his youth, but for some reason I had always assumed he shed his faith much earlier than 19.

Ligotti interviews are about as great a read as his fiction.
