Hodgson's vividly drawn descriptions of revulsive oceanic entities often pre-echo Lovecraft in their evocation of squamous, deep-sea terror, while the latter also acknowledged Hodgson's masterful evocations of elemental disquiet and disorder. NIGHT OCEANS collects all of Hodgson's acclaimed "Sargasso Sea" tales - From The Tideless Sea, The Mystery Of The Derelict, The Thing In The Weeds, The Finding Of The Graiken, and The Voice In The Dawn (famously filmed in 1963 by Japanese director IshirĂ´ Honda, under the title Matango) - reproduced in chronological order according to year of publication; also included is a complementary bonus text, The Weed Men, taken from Hodgson's sea-faring novel The Boats Of Glen Carrig.

    TO ALL

    Really? Come on, are yall not ahamed of yourselves at all?? Like seriously. How do you thibk the authors feel when they see these on their books? They probably get all excited cux they got a review and then they found out its some kids being nasty!! And think about the kids who see this stuff. I know for a fact six and seven year olds go on the nook. They see this and they ask me "whats this?" And i have to quickly say "thats bad. Those are bad people. " do you wanna be a "bad people"? Im 13. No one i know thibks this is cool. Even the older teens say this is just disgusting. its not cool. It wont make you feel happy. It wont make you liked.This just sickens me. Im sorry, all you authors who have their books defiled by this.
