Topic Winner Thomas Ligotti Online - Eighteenth Anniversary

On February 4th, 1998, TLO was born.

Happy Belated Birthday, Thomas Ligotti Online! Like a doddering, absent-minded father, I had mistakenly thought it was today--not last Thursday.

A heartfelt thank you to Brian Poe (aka Dr. Bantham) for his wonderful design, hosting and administrative prowess and to all the members of TLO past and present for making this an online community that continues to stand the test of time.

Finally, thanks to Thomas Ligotti himself as always. So pleased the literary world is recognizing the singular brilliance of the man and his work.

Here's to eighteen more years of TLO!

"...the uncanny is to me the defining trait of this strange and terrible world and our strange and terrible minds." --Thomas Ligotti

Indeed. My thanks as well.

Re: Thomas Ligotti Online - Eighteenth Anniversary

Such an exceptional site. Hours of enjoyment...or is it days by now?

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.

Re: Thomas Ligotti Online - Eighteenth Anniversary

It says a lot about TLO that it is still alive and kicking while many other forums have died "relatively gradually" or "relatively suddenly".

Re: Thomas Ligotti Online - Eighteenth Anniversary

Congratulations TLO! In three years, I'll be able to take you out for a drink. And many, many thanks to you, Jon, for creating such a great place to share all things Ligottian.

"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: Thomas Ligotti Online - Eighteenth Anniversary

Congrats and thanks to all members. I am not here as often anymore but I still lurk once in a while. The level, variety and depth of the discussions on this site is superb. Hip hooray!

"I myself have never seen the Red Tower - no one ever has, and possibly no one ever will. And yet wherever I go people are talking about it. In one way or another they are talking about the nightmarish novelty items or about the mysterious and revolting hyper-organisms, as well as babbling endlessly about the subterranean system of tunnels and the secluded graveyard whose headstones display no names and no dates designating either birth or death"
