Lovecraftian Thing a Day No.97: in a Foreign Town, In a Foreign Land.

After picking up David Keenan’s England’s Hidden Reverse yesterday, I was inspired to turn my attention to a relevant piece from my collection: The collaborative In a Foreign Town, In A Foreign Land which includes a booklet offour stories by Thomas Ligotti accompanied by a CD of four tracks by Current 93. The collection contains what is, for me, another choice Ligotti tale, ‘His Shadow Shall Rise to a Higher House’ in which one Mr. Ascrobius seeks not only to end his existence, but to utterly 'uncreate' it from realities both material and numinous – with (unsurprisingly) monstrous results.
