From Evil's Pillow, as well as And Afterward The Dark are available at decent used prices and have fine stories. Both are Arkham books.

I've seen photos of him at gatherings and he looked like a guy from an Edwardian ghost story. I read one story and it was okay. He has lots of collections.

Re: Recent Reading

I have been reading "The Serpent and the Rainbow". They made a really bad but good movie with Bill Pullman on the cover all done up in voodoo garb and being buried alive. The book is weird as weird fiction; a Harvard scientist went to Haiti and found the drug that makes people zombies.

The House of the Wolf (1983) - Valancourt Books
Valancourt books has released three of his novels, including House of the Wolf, their editions are very nice. I like his prose in this, a bit pulpy at times but it fits the book nicely. I have also read Copper's The Great White Space, and unfortunatley I found it a bit dull. I am looking foward to reading Necropolis though.

His short stories are collected in three volumes entitled Darkness, Mist and Shadow, but if the paperbacks are like the hardback editions they're riddled with misprints.

Re: Recent Reading

I've heard the paperback and hardcover versions have slightly different contents. Annoying.

Really? The hardback edition is two volumes and the paperback is three volumes but I wasn't aware any stories were missing.

Maybe that's all the contents difference there is. If so, that's not so bad.

Re: Recent Reading

I do find it interesting that Ligotti provided a blurb for Sotos not so long ago. Mainly because Sotos doesn't seem like the type of writer I can imagine Ligotti enjoying. And yet, there it is...
