Quirk Classics

What do you think about the Quirk Classics idea? It looks fun. If this book makes it to my library, I might give it a try. I'll have to ponder what other classics can be reworked. Maybe Wuthering Heights with Werewolves. Any ideas?



Lisa Schwarzbaum of Entertainment Weekly reviewed it and gave it an A- !

Re: Quirk Classics

Tender Is the Nightgaunt by F. Scott Fitzgerald and H. P. Lovecraft.

"What does it mean to be alive except to court disaster and suffering at every moment?"

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.
