Holy cow! I'm about 1/2 way through this book of short stories and the experience is mindbending. It is cold and pessemistic like Suskind or Lovecraft, personal like Bierce, dreamy and intricate like Calvino. This is really hypnotic.

Anyone read this?

I've read other Ligotti, but the sense of despair that runs through everything was just too much. I need a glimmer of hope, sometimes..

I had no idea Ligotti is from Detroit.
In that context, I guess the endless despair makes sense.

You don't want to invite this guy to a party.

When browsing the internet, I keep a list of books that seem interesting. This has just been added to my list - thanks!

I really need to get a kindle
