Re: Penguin Classics Publishing Songs of a Dead Dreamer and Grimscribe Volume

Well, a stupid review was bound to happen someday. By this I mean the fact that they gave the book 6 out of 10 stars:

Reality Itself Is Malevolent in Thomas Ligotti's Work | PopMatters

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: Penguin Classics Publishing Songs of a Dead Dreamer and Grimscribe Volume

Finally finished this one. Wow. Stories were good, prose incredibly dense at times. While the puppet motif came through loud and clear I was more chilled by his work regarding hypnotism from In the Sect of the Idiot. Something about hypnotized masses led by masters "who were themselves among the hypnotized" really left an impression on me. I don't think I've ever come across anything quite like it.
Brilliant.
