Lovecraftian Thing a Day No.292: The Ceremonies

Probably of the best weird novels of the late 20th Century, T.ED. Klein's The Ceremonies is about to see a new re-release in hardback from PS Publishing. More Machen than Lovecraft (at a push The Ceremonies could be almost be treated as a kind of sequel to Machen's The White People), the novel does, nonetheless contain a strong thread of cosmicism running through it, and is a must-read if you are new to weird fiction or haven't yet encountered this. Sadly, this is the only novel Klein has thusfar published, although (and I may be misremembering this) I seem to recall that S.T. Joshi mentioned recently that Klein has finally returned to finishing his long-anticipated second novel Night Town...
