Songs of a Dead Dreamer | Thomas Ligotti

I reaaallllly need a good creepy book for the holidays. ;) Suggestions welcome, but beware, my tastes are slightly eccentric -- if you know who Thomas Ligotti is, he's a good example of the kind of horror fiction I like ...

"But you're quite right about one thing," he added, before the subject passed, "and that is that we're wiser not to talk about it, or even to think about it, because what one thinks finds expression in words, and what one says, happens."

Rainbow Stories | William T. Vollmann
Pickpick

Highly recommended to poets or anyone who loves experimental fiction. Dark and gritty with a high dose of empathy and sincerity, breathlessly beautiful prose. It's weird. It's amazing. It is strangely easy to read. Took me about a week to finish and I'm so glad I did.

I've never read a book like this and that makes the experience intoxicating and a little sad.

Kiernan is fucking brilliant, and so is this collection of short stories. If you‘re a fan of weird and dark fiction, you should definitely check it out.
