Thomas Ligotti is a modern horror short-story writer whose first publications came out in the late 80s, and were a profound influence on the genre and I think on anyone who reads him. If you are familair with the field you will always remember the first Ligotti story you read (mine was "Alice's Last Adventure' from Prime Evil) . His style can be arch, dry, really disturbing and very funny. He is one of the really important ones. A film adaptation of his story 'The Frolic' is forthcoming, as is a graphic novel of his highly recommended collection 'The Nightmare Factory'. Lovely, dark and deep.

Isn't Agyness Deyn adorable?...she reminds me a little of Sara Stockbridge, one of the stars of i-D magazine in the 80s and a favourite of Vivienne Westwood's. They're both got a sweet, individualistic attitude.
