The Spectral LinkThe Spectral Link by Thomas Ligotti

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This book consists of two long short stories (each around 45 pages) by the contemporary writer of existential horror. "Metaphysica Morum" is an expression and discussion of the nihilistic and pessimistic philosophy by a man disenchanted with the world (much like Ligotti himself). "The Small People" is the stronger story focusing on the limits of human knowledge and confronting the "unreal." This is the kind of writing that gets under your skin and in your head more than jumps out at you with visceral scares and Ligotti is a master of making the reader question assumptions about the world.
