He has cited Thomas Bernhard, William S. Burroughs, Emil Cioran, Vladimir Nabokov, Edgar Allan Poe, Giacomo Leopardi, Samuel Beckett, Franz Kafka, and Bruno Schulz as being among his favorite writers. H. P. Lovecraft is also an important touchstone for Ligotti: a few stories, “The Sect of the Idiot” in particular, make explicit reference to Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos, and one, “The Last Feast of Harlequin”, was dedicated to Lovecraft. Also among his avowed influences are Algernon Blackwood, M.R. James, and Arthur Machen, all fin de siècle horror authors known for their subtlety and implications of the cosmic and supernatural in their stories. He has also invoked the influence of philosophers such as Arthur Schopenhauer and Peter Wessel Zapffe.

Ligotti has suffered from chronic anxiety and anhedonia for much of his life; these have been prominent themes in his work. Ligotti avoids the explicit violence common in some recent horror fiction, preferring to establish a disquieting, pessimistic atmosphere through the use of subtlety and repetition. Ligotti has stated he prefers short stories to longer forms, both as a reader and as a writer, though he has written a novella, My Work Is Not Yet Done (2002)

Ligotti’s ancestry is three-quarters Sicilian, one-quarter Polish, a genetic combination he likes to think “contributed to the bizarre quality of my imagination and to what has been called its ‘universality’.” He says that his Polish grandmother’s stories, though not horrific, “put me in touch with an older and stranger world than I would otherwise have known and that emerged when I started writing stories so many years later”.

Life Story & Timeline

2015

In July 2015 Born to Fear: Interviews with Thomas Ligotti, edited by Matt Cardin, was announced as one of the nominees for that year’s World Fantasy Awards.

2014

In 2014, the HBO television series True Detective attracted attention from some of Ligotti’s fans because of the striking resemblance between the pessimistic, antinatalist philosophy espoused in the first few episodes by the character of Rust Cohle (played by Matthew McConaughey) and Ligotti’s own philosophical pessimism and antinatalism, especially as expressed in The Conspiracy Against the Human Race. After accusations that dialogue from Cohle’s character in True Detective were lifted from The Conspiracy Against the Human Race, the series’ writer, Nic Pizzolatto, confirmed in The Wall Street Journal that Ligotti, along with several other writers and texts in the weird supernatural horror genre, had indeed influenced him. Pizzolatto said he found The Conspiracy Against the Human Race to be “incredibly powerful writing”. On the topic of hard-boiled detectives, he asked: “What could be more hardboiled than the worldview of Ligotti or [Emil] Cioran?”

2008

Ligotti gives a favorable quote in the introduction to Nova Scotia, Canada, fiction writer Barry Wood’s short story “Nowhere to Go” (2008) published in Postscripts #14. Ligotti has also provided blurbs for books by Eddie M. Angerhuber, Matt Cardin, Dustin LaValley, Sarah Perry, Michael Cisco, Peter Sotos, the philosopher Eugene Thacker, and Thomas Wiloch. Thomas Ligotti served as editor for the revised edition of “Haunted Universe: The True Knowledge of Enlightenment” by Steven Norquist. Ligotti also approved an excerpt from “Professor Nobody’s little lectures on Supernatural Horror” to be used in the introduction. Ligotti is mentioned and thanked in the acknowledgements of the book for challenging the author to present “Haunted Universe in its most pure and powerful form.”

2002

Ligotti has suffered from chronic anxiety and anhedonia for much of his life; these have been prominent themes in his work. Ligotti avoids the explicit violence common in some recent horror fiction, preferring to establish a disquieting, pessimistic atmosphere through the use of subtlety and repetition. Ligotti has stated he prefers short stories to longer forms, both as a reader and as a writer, though he has written a novella, My Work Is Not Yet Done (2002)

1997

Ligotti collaborated with the musical group Current 93 on the albums In a Foreign Town, In a Foreign Land (1997, reissued 2002), I Have a Special Plan for This World (2000), This Degenerate Little Town (2001) and The Unholy City (2003), all released on David Tibet’s Durtro label. Tibet has also published several limited editions of Ligotti’s books on Durtro Press. Additionally, Ligotti played guitar on Current 93’s contribution to the compilation album Foxtrot, whose proceeds went to the treatment of musician John Balance’s alcoholism.

1980

Ligotti started his career as a published writer in the early 1980s with a number of short stories published in various American small press magazines. He was contributing editor to Grimoire from 1982 to 1985. In 2015, Ligotti’s first two collections, Songs of a Dead Dreamer and Grimscribe: His Lives and Works, were republished in one volume by Penguin Classics as Songs of a Dead Dreamer and Grimscribe. Michael Calia of The Wall Street Journal wrote of the reprint that “Horror writer Thomas Ligotti is about to enter the American literary canon. Penguin Classics published a volume of Mr. Ligotti’s short stories, making him one of 10 living writers, including Thomas Pynchon and Don DeLillo, among the hundreds the imprint has published in the U.S.” Ligotti’s work received high praise following the publication from the likes of The New York Times Book Review, the Los Angeles Review of Books, The Washington Post, and The New Yorker. Terrence Rafferty contrasts Ligotti with Stephen King, observing, “King, the great entertainer, needs the story as the comedian needs the joke, and when he can’t quite deliver it he dies (in the comedian’s sense). King is a master of horror, though. When inspiration fails, he has the technique to fake it. Thomas Ligotti is a master of a different order, practically a different species. He probably couldn’t fake it if he tried, and he never tries. He writes like horror incarnate.”

1971

Ligotti attended Macomb County Community College between 1971 and 1973 and graduated from Wayne State University in 1978. For 23 years Ligotti worked as an Associate Editor at Gale Research (now the Gale Group), a publishing company that produces compilations of literary (and other) research.
