Happy Birthday, Thomas Ligotti

Although we all know how Tom feels about his Birthday, I wanted to provide a place for TLOers to wish him well today.

Here's hoping this day will be a peaceful, pleasant one for you, Tom.

Happy birthday!

Tibet: Carnivals?
Ligotti: Ceremonies for initiating children into the cult of the sinister.
Tibet: Gas stations?
Ligotti: Nothing to say about gas stations as such, although I've always responded to the smell of gasoline as if it were a kind of perfume.

Re: Happy Birthday, Thomas Ligotti

Hope Tom rediscovers his passion for writing. The world needs more good stories. There are too many bad ones.

Have a good one, however you prefer it.

Re: Happy Birthday, Thomas Ligotti

Hi, Rog.

I don't know if you've heard, but Tom has indeed written two new stories in recent months, and they are both amazing and quite unlike anything he's ever written.I'm eager for these to find a home so they can be enjoyed by all of his readers.

Re: Happy Birthday, Thomas Ligotti

Among all of the various tribulations and tragedies that comprise "the trouble with being born," I think none is more troubling or tragic than the fact that so few of these births give us -- or rather, only a single birth has ever given us -- a Thomas Ligotti. I think I wish you didn't exist for your own sake, Tom, but for the rest of us, I thank the Great Chemists that you do. Which is all, of course, a roundabout way of wishing you a most blessed birthday.
