Editorial Reviews

The Washington Post
Editor Jeremy Lassen and Night Shade books have done a true service to fantastic scholarship by collecting William Hope Hodgson's hard-to-find early fiction. The Boats of the "Glen Carrig" and Other Nautical Adventures demonstrates Hodgson's gift for spinning sensational adventure yarns of haunted swamps, forests and seas, suffused with dread and crawling with monsters. — Fiona Kelleghan
Publishers Weekly
The Boats of the "Glen Carrig" and Other Nautical Adventures: Being the First Volume of the Collected Fiction of William Hope Hodgson, edited by Jeremy Lassen, collects all the series sea fiction of this British fantasist, much of it long unavailable. As the 23 short stories show, Hodgson (1877-1918), best known for his novels of cosmic vision, could write quite successfully for the commercial magazine market of his day.
