Takes a great deal of concentration to read this. Don't get me wrong, these stories were good and quite scary, but it's a slow build and one needs to read EVERYTHING (don't skim). As a person who likes to read on the bus, it was difficult for me to get through.
"Life is a nightmare that leaves its mark upon in order to prove that it is, in fact, real."
Reclusive American horror author Thomas Ligotti's name came up a number of times in connection with HBO's "True Detective," which prompted me to check out. Subterranean press has reissued three of his collections in revised, hardcover editions with creepy covers. This was his first and established him as the rightful heir to Lovecraft's slow-burn, supernatural horror, although astute readers will pick up traces of Poe too. Like Lovecraft, many of his stories have to due with legends, obscure lore, madness, and dream-like states that may be real. Check it out.
