Personal Quote:

And if we're talking about hard-boiled detectives, too, what could be more hardboiled than the worldview of Ligotti or Cioran? They make the grittiest of crime writers seem like dilettantes. Next to "The Conspiracy Against the Human Race," Mickey Spillane seems about as hard-boiled as bubble gum.[2014] See more »

Trivia:

His favorite writers include William Faulkner, Cormac McCarthy, Denis Johnson, Alice Munro, Stephen King, Emil Cioran and Raymond Chandler. See more »
