Thomas Ligotti's short story "Nethescurial" has one of the best closing sentences in English-language horror, right up there with "It was a picture from life!" and "It is the beating of his hideous heart!". It's not long, either. What starts off as a reader's account of an interesting manuscript uncovered in a library turns into...something else. Read the whole thing, courtesy of Thomas Ligotti Online.

Now see, I thought "It was a picture from life!" was redundant, which made me sad because, in terms of style, the rest of "Pickman's Model" is unusually sprightly and economical.
