Masquerades in Literary And Academic Circles According to "The Devil’s Dictionary"

Part of what I admire in Ligotti is his absolute humility, his refusal to pretend that having literary talent makes him a superior being. He’s had a difficult life and that’s made him intolerant of arrogance.

One way to deal with confusion linguarum is to rely on dictionaries. Out of the dozens of dictionaries that pile up on my shelves there is an exceptional one that through its biting critique provides a vehicle for moral instruction… and by doing so brings huge amounts of merriment and laughter. The work in question was compiled by one of the classic weird fiction writers, Ambrose Bierce. I am of course referring to The Devil’s Dictionary, of which I am a huge enthusiast. I have been stopping to browse it on and off for over a decade.

"Eddie" M. Angerhuber Bibliography: Translations

>>Bibliography: Short Stories

Note: The purpose of this section is to compile a list of Angerhuber’s translations, all of which were published under the author's real name Monika Angerhuber. Monika has translated into German several titles for the publisher Edition Metzengerstein, including three books from their series Edgar Allan Poes phantastische Bibliothek, among them: The White Hands by Mark Samuels, My Work is Not Yet Done by Thomas Ligotti and a collection of stories by Quentin S. Crisp (Dunkler Gestade – Aufgesang) that assembled texts from various sources.[1]
In 2002 Angerhuber won the first place in the German Phantastik-Preis for In einer fremden Stadt, in einem fremden Land featuring her translation of numerous stories by Thomas Ligotti. The same year, she was awarded the fourth place in the internet-based contest "Supreme TerrorScribe" for the story "The Skull" published online in her own translation.

"Eddie" M. Angerhuber Bibliography: Short Stories

>>Bibliography: Novels, novellas, short story collections and chapbooks

Note: This section presents a list of stories by Angerhuber with their original and subsequent appearances. In his entry on “Eddie” M. Angerhuber in Supernatural Literature of the World: An Encyclopedia, Marco Frenschkowski states that the writer “has published about one hundred tales of weird and supernatural fiction”. Out of those one hundred pieces, many of which were published in obscure fanzines and magazines, I have managed to identify ninety (titles of two stories still need to be identified). In many cases the first publications were identified based on reviews, which are still available online, plus those that were published in Solar-X. Please note that the story collections do not provide the source of the original publications (except for Die darbenden Schatten), it was therefore a challenge to track down some of the original appearances.[1]
