The Manuscript of Horrors by William Hope Hodgson

In 1877, two men travel to Ireland to spend a week fishing in the village of Kraighten. While there, they discover in the ruins of a ominous house a diary of the man who had once owned it. Its torn pages describe an evil beyond anything that existed on this side of known reality. This novel is responsible for building a bridge between the fantastic and supernatural authors of the later 19th century and modern horror fiction. This masterpiece is chillingly relevant today.

About the Author

William Hope Hodgson (Nov. 15, 1877 – Apr. 1918) was a prolific English author who wrote in the Gothic/sci-fi style, which the great H.P. Lovecraft said greatly influenced him. Early in Hodson's career he wrote unique and dark poetry, although few of his poems were published during his lifetime. He was also a talented photographer and a bodybuilder. He died in World War I at the age of 40.

He is considered one of the prime influences on modern horror and fantasy.

I can see why H.P. Lovecraft used this author's work as a road map. The horror is so good it plays well today, in my opinion. I got more than I expected from this horror masterpiece. It was weird, Gothic and just plain terrorizing.
