Description

The Unspeakable And Others book. Dan Clore is a technically impressive writer with an extensive vocabulary of adjectives and adverbs, but plotwise, I found it greatly lacking.

The Unspeakable And Others book. Apr 25, 2008 Henrik rated it really liked it.

The Unspeakable written by Dan Clore is definitely not for the squeamish. Good horror literature as this, is indeed rare. Deeply dark without being prurient. Each tale is a fantabulous mind-bending trip of Lovecraftian proportions. All the tales (stand seperate), form a cohesive binding whole that makes the Unspeakable, speak. Each story is a "penny dreadful" written by the exo-outerly enigmatic Lord Weyrdgliffe of the Waughters. Highly recommend this in small doses on those nights you want to be creeped out!

My collected short fiction appeared in the fall of 2001 (surely the most terrifying event to occur in the period), as The Unspeakable and Others.

Unspeakable and Other Stories. Author of The Safety of Unknown Cities, The Silence Between the Screams ww. ucyTaylor.

Ron heard those two Unspeakables complaining about i. An Unspeakable is a wizard or witch who works in the Ministry of Magic's Department of Mysteries. Little is known about their workplace, and even less is known about their jobs. Employees of the Department of Mysteries are forbidden from discussing their jobs or disclosing any information about their department, hence the name "Unspeakable.

What is refreshing in Clore s work is a misanthropy as rare in literature as the Asianic style itself. Here one can only look to some of the darkest satirists of the past two millennia--Juvenal, Jonathan Swift, Arthur Schopenhauer, Ambrose Bierce, and Shirley Jackson almost exhaust the catalogue. The idea that we are required to extend benevolence to human beings merely because they are human beings is one of the deepest and most irrational prejudices in human thought. Let us recall Lovecraft: 'may not all mankind be a mistake--an abnormal growth--a disease in the system of Nature--an excrescence on the body of infinite progression like a wart on the human hand? Might not the total destruction of humanity, as well as of all animate creation, be a positive boon to Nature as a whole?' Whether Clore agrees with this remark is only for him to say; but that misanthropy is at the heart of all the tales of Lord Weyrdgliffe can hardly be gainsaid. --S.T. Joshi, from the Introduction

Over the top grotesques, similar to C. A. Smith if he had been un-edited. Makes Stephen King look like a sissy.

Dan Clore is first and foremost an impressionist; his work leaves an indelible impression on the imagination of the reader. Each like a micro article you'd have seen on a library computer many years ago, but they are not micro newspaper articles. They are small decals on a blotter of the strong stuff. The story that really caught my attention was the second, "The Unknown Elixir". Excerpt:

"The thing, pot-bellied and crouching in the posture of a statue of the Buddha, replied that, from its appearance, one might better judge it an anti-Midas than an alchemist; that changing gold into lead might better match its talents than the converse; and that it might, through its mere touch and not through any expertise in the spagyric arts, mutate the known universe into a shapeless dungheap relieved only by rivulets of bilious slime and oceans of fœtid ochre. It clutched its écru underbelly, turned a little bit to its left, and launched a jet of acrid vomit filled with still-living slugs, worms, and woodlice which soiled the several piles of books that lay scattered thereabouts as they crept away in a daze."

This could have been written by any number of the more well-remembered Decadents, by Robert E. Howard, it is informed by every precious literary madness in existence. Clore's is a compact pathos which, if one needed to classify, would be something like a mix of the surrealist with the deeply decadent. I doubt he will have to stoop to much careerism. This work stands on its own.

Mr. Clore is a master of the macabre prose poem. He is astonishingly inventive, and devises images not soon forgotten. He is willing to take risks from which most writers would flee in terror. He is unlikely to appeal to Babbitts or the semiliterate, but admirers of Poe, or the Decadents, or Clark Ashton Smith, should find his work of considerable interest. Sophisticated Lovecraftians will enjoy the outlandish and sometimes hilarious Cthulhuvian essays which are also included.

It is reputed that the author suffers from chronic pain. It is not clear whether that pain is the cause or a consequence of his writing style. My guess: the former.
