Three chapters in, this is great writing. I love the melding and merging of the cityscape's buildings, signs and lights with the anatomy, and the imagery of ancient and mysterious buildings - temples, ossuaries, necrópolis, megaliths and so on. It gives it a visionary, poetic feel - well, you can tell a poet wrote it rather than a 'novelist':

"Objects acquired unusual aspect, logic suffered, the room was a conundrum."

"There is a cage around the spine and heart."

Also very intrigued about the object thrown through the window :unsure:

And I like these words: tangles, roots, tendrils, scars, roots, ablutions, bulges, membranes, skin and bone and blood.

Shub-Niggurath, Please
I notice that the title can be read as referring not only to lights in the normal sense, but also to light, i.e. low-tar, cigarettes. (Lambent & Butler, presumably.)

@woops I notice you wussed out of doing X in the chapter of alphabetical paragraphs! Couldn't you have had something about Xenophon sending Xerxes a xenophobic Xerox?

I just read that chapter yesterday but in such a tired, fuzzy headed state it took me till about the letter L before I realised it was alphabetical, lol.

Really enjoying it so far though. Very odd book, don't think I've ever read anything quite like it.

Unreal city.
