As in, the regular ol' printed page. What are you reading? What have you finished reading? In my case, over the past year I've been exploring the oft-neglected genre of "weird fiction," where there's some incredibly talented writers toiling in obscurity. Partially due to the fact "weird fiction" is a tricky thing to classify (and easily advertise) as a genre, partially because the majority of their work appears in books with an extremely limited print run (fewer than 200 copies in some cases).
The writer who sparked my interest in the genre is Thomas Ligotti, whose work is as richly textured and beautiful as it is bleak. Most of Ligotti's bibliography is out-of-print, but I was able to secure a copy of his first work, Songs Of A Dead Dreamer, which was re-released this year in an edition extensively revised by Ligotti himself (and unlike some artists, Ligotti's revisions to his earlier work improve it). Also, Ligotti's first nonfiction book, The Conspiracy Against The Human Race, was released shortly after the revised SOADD, and provides a marvelous tool for navigating some of the more abstract ideas in his work, as well as providing a detailed outline of Ligotti's dour personal philosophy.
In fact, I'm reading a bunch of short story collections right now. Joeseph S. Pulver, Sr.'s Blood Will Have Its Season, combines poetry, noir, and some severe cosmic nastiness, as well as contemporary updates of Robert W. Chamber's The King in Yellow. Mark Samuels spins tales of metaphysical urban terror in The White Hands And Other Gothic Tales and Glyphotech. Laird Barron pits private eyes against ancient extraterrestrial threats lurking in the Pacific Northwest and elsewhere in The Imago Sequence and Occultation. Quentin S. Crisp provides a mash-up of Japanese literature and British wit in All God's Angels, Beware!. The list goes on, but those are the books I'm working through at the moment. What's on everyone else's reading pile?
