“In the absence of my host I directed my eyes to the treasures of his house and made them my own. There was something I had not yet seen, somehow I knew this. But what I was looking for was not yet to be seen, which I did not know. I was sent to spy and so everything around me appeared suspicious. Can you see it, through my eyes? Can you peek into those cobwebbed corners or scan the titles of those tilting books? Yes; but can you now, in the maddest dream of your lives, peer into places that have no corners and bear no names? This is what I tried to do: to see beyond the ghoulish remnants of the good Van Livenns, who were now merely dead; to see beyond this haunted stage of hysterical actors, who in their panics pretend to feel what we, good people, pretend not to feel. And so I had to turn corners inside-out with my eyes and to read the third side of a book's page, seeking in futility to gaze at what I could then touch with none of my senses. It remained something shapeless and nameless, dampish and submerged, something swamplike and abysmal which opposed the pure cold of the autumn storm outside.”
Thomas Ligotti - “Flowers of the Abyss”

Near the end of a recent blog post, Jeff VanderMeer made brief mention of working on an introduction to a forthcoming Ligotti reprint for Penguin Classics. Exciting!

"Drink to Me Only with Labyrinthine Eyes" on
Apr 17, 2015 - 7:50 AM - by Dr. Locrian
The grand finale of the Ligotti-fest over at Pseudopod has arrived with an audio version of the Ligotti's own, "Drink to Me Only with Labyrinthine Eyes."

I haven't yet had a chance to listen to it, but the Pseudopod productions (and narrators) are uniformly superb, and of course I have no doubts about the quality of the writing!

While you're over there, be sure to check out the excellent Ligotti-related tale, "The Influence Of Thomas Glittio," by Arthur Staaz and my own "20 Simple Steps to Ventriloquism."

When you're done, be sure to head over to the official Pseudopod forum and share your thoughts about the stories. The Ligotti thread has not been created yet, but it will be in the next couple of days.
