My Work is Not Yet Done (2011) 3 stars

Pretty typical Ligotti

3 stars

I have written elsewhere that Ligotti’s progression as a writer goes from one or two fantastic first publications and then spirals downhill. This is definitely part of the spiral.

For the most part I enjoyed the increasingly creepy imagery of the first novella, but the ending left me a little cold and ultimately it felt pointless (maybe that was the point though). The other two stories were unnecessary filler.

No need to read this unless you’re a Ligotti completist.
