Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"A fractured mind is often the way into a world not suspected by those of an innocent normality."

Enter the universe of renowned horror master Thomas Ligotti — a universe where clowns take part in a sinister winter festival, a scheming girlfriend makes reality itself come unraveled, a crumbling asylum's destruction unleashes a greater horror, and a mysterious Teatro comes and goes, leaving only shattered dreams in its wake.

In the tradition of Edgar Allan Poe and H. P. Lovecraft, Ligotti's sophisticated tales of terror take us to places few would suspect exist, where madness is only a thought away. The Nightmare Factory adapts four of Ligotti's most chilling tales into fine graphic literature by famed writers and artists Stuart Moore, Joe Harris, Colleen Doran (The Sandman), Ben Templesmith (30 Days of Night), Ted McKeever (Batman), and Michael Gaydos (Alias).

Featuring all-new introductions to each story by Thomas Ligotti.

Review:

"[M]akes for deliciously bleak reading....If you like straightforward, meat-and-potatoes horror, you may be put off by the obliqueness of stories such as 'Teatro Grottesco.'...But even these yarns pack a fair share of nightmarish moments... (Grade: B+)" Entertainment Weekly

Review:

"[A] quartet of stylishly ominous adaptations....In a fall season typified by much more categorizable frights, Nightmare Factory provides a bitterly entertaining treat for those attuned to its storyteller's grim sentiments." The Boston Globe

Review:

"The artwork was superb across the board....[I]f you're a fan of Ligotti or the likes of Poe and Lovecraft, and you're looking for something to curl up to this fall to get your 'creep' on, then I'd recommend picking The Nightmare Factory up and giving it a whirl." JoBlo.com

Review:

"[E]ntertaining from start to finish....These tales of terror exude waves of paranoia and pathos from every page." Ain't It Cool News

Review:

"The scripts tend to be oppressively wordy and sometimes irritatingly repetitive to little purpose....Ligotti is more about mood than specifics, but while these stories aren't generally satisfying, they're beautifully, queasily rendered... (Grade: B)" The Onion AV Club

Synopsis:

The terrifying world of acclaimed horror writer Thomas Ligotti is brought frighteningly to life by a collection of today's most talented writers and illustrators. Full color throughout.

About the Author

Thomas Ligotti is regarded by many as one of the greatest living horror writers. His works have received numerous honors, including three Bram Stoker awards. In his book-length study of the modern weird tale, H. P. Lovecraft scholar and veteran critic of horror fiction S.T. Joshi has written of Ligotti's "The Last Feast of Harlequin" that "it may perhaps be the very best homage to Lovecraft ever written" and that, among his peers in the horror genre, Ligotti stands alone, remarking: "His is the most distinctive voice in the field."
