The Night Land - Large Print Edition by William Hope Hodgson

The Night Land qualifies as science fiction for its time because when the book first appeared in 1912, we didn't know the energy source for stars. Does that make it fantasy? Does that make it horror? It's certainly a dystopian novel of a dying earth. It's also incredibly inventive. A man from the 17th century loses the love of her life, and during his mourning process, he gets a vision of a far future where he and his lover will be reunited, but that future is a strange one where the sun has gone dark, and people live in a giant metal pyramid known as the Last Redoubt and fight with the creatures who live outside in the dark.

The hero establishes a mental connection, or psychic link, with the reincarnation of his lover and finds that she is not in the Last Redoubt, but in a forgotten place known as the Lesser Redoubt. He sets off into the darkness to find her...

This Large Print Edition is presented in easy-to-read 16 point type.

About 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.
