I’m finishing the very last short story of the next collection RIGHT NOW. Everything else has been written: the stories, the introduction, all that…
It’s being published in February, and it will be called TRIGGER WARNING: Short Fictions and Disturbances.
Film Meme: directors (7/7)
It’s important for little girls to know not every story has to be a love story and for boys to know that soldiers aren’t the only ones to triumph in war. - Guillermo del Toro
#the neverending struggle to put into words#how fucking important del toro’s work is to me#from the early stuff [chronos & mimic] the grotesque hybrid-horror full of pestilence and insects and invaded bodies#to the dark anarchic subversions of superhero films starring monsters [hellboy & blade ii]#to bitter gothic satire [el espinazo del diablo]#to the terrible & beautiful shadow-fairytales [hellboy ii & pan’s labyrinth]#[& that strange action blockbuster which was wonderful but lacking in exquisite grotesquerie]#he’s just#one of the greatest living directors#with the most awful and enchanting and macabre imagination#with the utmost respect for darkness of every kind#but not at the expense of heart and love and survival and kindness (via elucipher)
