Re: Ligotti panel at NecronomiCon Providence 2017

Let's move on. This thread wasn't intended to indict anyone on either side. This is about a major panel at this convention being dedicated to the work of Thomas Ligotti.

I hope there will be a decent amount of time devoted to David Tibet and Current 93 in this panel.

Hope the convention panel is a brilliant success. No one has worked harder for wider recognition of Ligotti's fiction than you, Jon, so I hope you have a blast. It's obvious Ligotti is here to stay.

Thanks, Druidic. I deeply appreciate that, though we couldn't have come so far without all the TLO members like you.

We're coming into our 20th year of TLO in 2018. Can you believe it?

Re: Ligotti panel at NecronomiCon Providence 2017

Jon, I just found a link to the full essay on Borges' and Durrenmatt's detective fiction. It's placed in that thread now.

Re: Ligotti panel at NecronomiCon Providence 2017

I'm afraid a change of circumstance has made it so that I won't be able to attend the convention. I'll look forward to hearing a report about how the TLO meetup went.

We are going to miss you and your singular insight so much, Matt. And, of course, I'm personally bummed out since this was going to be the first time we met in person after 20 some odd years of friendship! But you can bet I'll be giving you the run down of all that occurs.

Re: Ligotti panel at NecronomiCon Providence 2017

Glad to see that Frater's going. He's bound to lend his unique perspective to events, and I hope he gives us his own wrap-up as well.

Put your faith in God; he won't expect you.
Put your faith in death, because it's free.
If you believe in nothing, honey, it believes in you.

Aw, man!

"What lay behind me was no longer any normal, familiar life, that everyday life out of which the impulse to pray raises us, with still at the back of our minds that whensoever we wish we can return. A void was behind me. And in front a wall, a wall of darkness." Georges Bernanos, The Diary of a Country Priest

Re: Ligotti panel at NecronomiCon Providence 2017

Speaking as someone who attended in 2013 and 2015 and was marginally involved with working on 2017, a portion of NecronomiCon is indeed about Lovecraft. Looking at this year's programming, it seems to be about 50/50 Lovecraft and non-Lovecraft content. Each iteration ventures further away from the Lovecraft circle and orthodox Mythos topics as its core. Simon Strantzas sums up the general vibe quite well in this new blog post, I think. A very short read that is well worth it.
