Ligotti - in a foreign town

Oh also, Michelle got me a new copy of the Thomas Ligotti/Current 93 book/cd In a Foreign Town. It's a small book, more of a booklet, which is with a CD. The idea is you listen to the CD while reading the book, because they're both creepy.

The stories are, i think, more finely crafted than those in Songs of a Dead Dreamer.

They all take place in "A town near the northern border", and involve the themes of metaphysical disappearance, public collusion, identity, etc. Actually, make that: metaphysical disappearance, metaphysical public collusion, metaphysical identity, and metaphysical etc.

Needless to say, i loved it.


  • what a swell girl, that michelle. i just began Catcher in the Rye.
