    Grimscribe His Lives and Works E–book/E–pub Ligotti's second collection of short tales is a considerable advance on his first I won't deny that Songs for a Dead Dreamer contains a number of effective stories but the collection as a whole is uneven and many of its most powerful effects occur in stories that are not in themselves successful This is due primarily to an immaturity of style Ligotti was not yet capable of fashioning a world that could contain his most characteristic pha

    Grimscribe His Lives and Works E–book/E–pub After bathing in the dark imagination of American contemporary horror fiction writer Tomas Ligotti’s first collection Songs of a Dead Dreamer I was keen to read his second book of thirteen macabre yarns entitled Grimscribe My experience did not disappoint – in the tradition of Poe and Lovecraft absolutely first rate well crafted bizarre and ghoulish narratives told by first person narrators to make your hair stand on end and

I ve decided to re review this almost a year after reading it because I ve decided that Ligotti might just be one of the best authors of short stories that most people have never heard aboutThis isn t something that I say very often best In order to explain myself assuming that you haven t already started ignoring me I m going to need to compare Ligotti to some other writers We ll start with what Ligotti is not Stephen King Now most people know who Steven King is If you ve never read one of his books or seen one of the movies based off his books you re probably taking a break from reading this review to whip the butler who incorrectly sorted your ascot collection He King not the butler along with people like Peter Straub Dean Koontz and others produce endless reams of horror pulp for their audiences Most of the time this plays off something scary and involves a bunch of people somewhere on the east coast getting killed by and then killing some monster of some sort Maybe it s a clown maybe it s a rabid dog maybe its aliens who cares The main thing for my point is that mass market paperback horror of this sort is viewed as a genre of pulp that has little or no value other than a distraction on winter nightsNext we ll move on to those that Ligotti is similar to There exist in pulp genres people who do something spectacular They write things that fulfill the primary reuirement for higher fiction novelistic fiction if you will This is to say that they write things that are concerned with existential uestions Now I have to use the term existential carefully here before everyone rolls their eyes and waits for me to start talking about how great Sartre s underpants were What I mean is that great literature often asks uestions relating to human existence In this light Moby Dick is not the story of a whale but of human obsession Anna Karenina is not about absurd bourgeoisie horse races or French Midgets but about a woman who s lost her virtue Crime and Punishmentwell that s still about Crime and Punishment but it s also exploring the post Napoleon ideas about laws and morals losing their grip on individuals after they transgress their way to Supermen With all this in mind Ligotti reminds me of Philip K Dick Philip K Dick PKD you may know or not know you may like or not like I will make this point though PKD turns a pulp genre Sci Fi into high literature This I would argue is why we ve seen so many movies made out of his stories because even though they were written in a pulpy genre they deal with now timeless themes of humanityLooking at PKD s work I think he covers uestions and deals with issues of human existence faster and interestingly than any other author I ve ever readSome examples Minority Report Will technology advance to the point where we can curb violent elements in human life before they are actualized How can such a power be used as a tool be used for political controlDo Androids Dream of Electric Sheep Will we advance our creations to the point where the border between us and them become blurry and we can no longer or just barely distinguish between human and human proxyFlow My Tears The Policeman Said How much of an effect does an individual have on the world Is it possible that the power that people use to change the world can be altered using drugs Will we create drugs powerful enough to completely replace our reality What is reality if not something we experience on a moment to moment basisWe ll Remember it For You Wholesale What is memory Will technology advance to the point where memory can be altered Replaced Used to alter and control large parts of the populace What is reality if not something we rememberMaybe at this point you get the idea I ll still add this PKD produced short fiction with serious uestions with wide variety of themes at a rate that dwarfs any other writer I can think of Even the worst of his writing at least that I ve read contains inspiring content than anything Stephen King has written Anyway almost a page later it s time for me to get back to the point With all of the above in mind the reason that I think that Ligotti is the best writer of short horror is this his work is similar to PKD s work with Sci Fi He takes the themes of horror sometimes with just the indefinable feeling of something terribly wrong ala Lovecraft and uses them to make punchy short stories that have meat than bestselling novels Adding to this he often writes unforgettably lines which reek of poetic skill something PKD wasn t capable of He wasn t as consistent or as productive as others but he s well worth a read In a genre where people often only aim to give people a little thrill Ligotti s work might be better compared to someone like Borges than his contemporaries
