I am currently reading Teatro Grottesco by Thomas Ligotti. It is a weird fiction short story collection. Thomas Ligotti is a modern day Lovecraft. I
can not believe I did not read his stuff sooner. He gives me that same feeling I got, when I first read Lovecraft as a teenager. He also does it
without directly copying Lovecraft, like so many weird fiction writers do.
The only reason I found out about him. Is because I just finished watching True Detective. After finishing it I read the Wiki page for True Detective.
To find out about the writer. Well on the Wiki page it said that some people have noticed word for word similarities between some of the dialogue in
that show with the works of Thomas Ligotti. I loved True Detective. So thought I would give the guy they ripped off a shot lol.
I also read Robert Chambers The King In Yellow because of True Detective. It was the book I read right before Teatro Grottesco. I have been on a short
story horror/weird fiction kick.
