Carnacki Gallery


Carnacki is arguably William Hope Hodgson’s most popular creation.  He is the only one of WHH’s characters to live beyond him with appearances on television, comics and works by other writers.

Since the collection of Carnacki stories first appeared in 1913, there have been 26 English editions of the book and it is a frequent favorite of print-on-demand publishers.  Not only that but it has been translated into German, Italian, Japanese, Romanian, Spanish, Dutch and French.

Today we present a gallery of CARNACKI book covers!  Enjoy!

    Anyone know what that creature on the French book is supposed to be? At least the other covers look more relevant to the content.

  2. I have The Casebook of Carnacki The Ghost Finder. It has nine stories. Is that the complete list? If not, do you know how many Carnacki stories there are?

    • Yes, nine stories was the entirety that Hodgson wrote with Carnacki as a character. Only six were published in his lifetime and collected in the first CARNACKI collection published by Eveleigh Nash in 1913. August Derleth added three “unpublished” Carnacki stories when he published his Arkham House edition in 1947 and, since then, all of the reprints have included all nine stories.
