Song of a Dead Dreamer

Songs of a Dead Dreamer by Thomas Ligotti, 275 pages

This author and therefore this book were recommended to me after my reading of Lovecraft. I was looking for another horror writer that conveyed the same sense of unease or dread upon the reader. Sadly, though it was quite good, it did not measure up to the standard of Lovecraft.

There was still the created sense of dread and unease but it was not as prevalent. Again I had my favorites that really seemed to resonate with me. But I it felt that more of this book was a drag despite being only short stories.

Since Ligotti is highly praised in his works of horror I plan to continue with his books.
