    On Ligotti.net there are some threads about clowns. In particular the news reports about clowns menacing and how similar such episodes are to The Clowns of Mirocaw etc...

    It may all be kicking off worldwide in the last couple of months, but the Northampton Clown was at it three years ago! http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/weird-n...powell-2366915

    Ooh look - an article on Ligotti and 'corporate horror'! Just stumbled across it, not read it yet but may try to absorb what I can via my desktop workstation during my allotted nutrient ingestion break.

    Has some nice moments ('Ligotti remains somewhat obscured' lol so apt) and some cringey bits. The Land and Brassier connections are a bit over reaching imo. Not sure they are the best supports for his argument... more 'unpacking' of the Berardi bits would be nice. I like those, even though I disagree with their sentiment.

    Charles Beaumont's 'The Vanishing American' is a nice corporate horror story.

    For decades, Ligotti’s fiction has avoided any sustained literary and critical attention for decades...
    ...within an uncanny and imaginative and decaying literary world-view...
    ...the likes of Franco ‘Bifo’ Berardi, Bülent Diken, Ray Brassier and Eugene Thacker, for example...
    Yeesh, I actually feel kind of for the guy.

    Edit: and that's not even a complete list of awful clangers in the first two paragraphs!

    There is one paragraph where 'this paper' is mentioned 4 times.

    I think I'd like to see a Ligotteque tribute in this academic style.

    The Last Feast of Harlequin is close: 'I had for some years been engaged in various anthropological projects with the primary ambition of articulating the significance of the clown figure in diverse cultural contexts.' LOL.

    But perhaps something really overboard. All passive sentences, close to curatorial speech. Throwing around the words like 'speculative' etc...

    Perhaps this will be my next story.

    I'm guilty of it myself. Before anyone points it out.

    However, something like this is nice.
