Meet the Author

William Hope Hodgson (1877-1918) was a British author of horror, fantasy, and science fiction. He loved to blend genres, and some of his novels are now considered classics in the literature of the fantastic. The House on the Borderland, and The Night Land, in particular are still well-loved, and The Boats of the 'Glen Carrig' is a forgotten gem of the fantastic. He was killed by an artillery shell in World War I.

    Pretty good

    I enjoyed a couple of the stories a lot and a couple not so well. He is very hard on animals and that upset me but it was written in the early 1900s and things were different then. About 315 pages long with a bit of violence and of courae some supernatural stuff. I was impressed that he was able to make something as low key as a door slamming and blankets on the floor scary.

    Just So-So

    The author had some interesting ideas, but his presentation of them was mediocre at best. For instance, he refers to certain arcane rituals, with names that include two or three of the same vowels together. This is annoying an shows a lack of imagination or effort. I found the book mildly amusing, but not something I am likely to read again.

    One Of The Truly Great Masters.

    Carncki: Hodgson's physic detective is one of the best. If you're a fan of the old school of writing, and long to find a good book to curl up to the fire on a cold winters night, this book is IT! The book is a veritable magic carpet ride to the wierd and the unknown.
