Hodgson on the Web!


In many ways, William Hope Hodgson is still a ‘forgotten’ writer.  Walk into a bookstore and you will not find any Hodgson on the shelves.  There are no conventions or film festivals devoted to Hodgson.  But, thankfully, Hodgson does have a presence on the internet!

So let’s take a look at some of the best places for Hodgson on the Web

Wikipedia–This is the Hodgson entry on Wikipedia and it is really quite good!  Written by Paul Potts (who recorded several Hodgson tales), it is both factual and entertaining.  AND, a rarity for Wikipedia, correct!  Definitely worth a look.

The Night Land–Andy Robertson’s excellent site is the best Hodgson website on the internet.  Although THE NIGHT LAND is the primary focus, there is much more here worth exploring.  Well worth frequent visiting.

William Hope Hodgson–This is a page on Alan Gullette’s wonderful authors website.  Although a little outdated, there is much of interest here including a fine essay on WHH by Alan.

Hodgson, William Hope–This is WHH’s page on the “Literary Gothic” website.  Not too much here but some good links.

The Carnacki Stories–Website that reprints the Carnacki stories along with the original illustrations for the tales that appeared in magazines.

There’s still much more that can be done with WHH in regards to the internet but these sites represent a great starting place.  It is my hope that we will see more websites devoted to WHH in the future!
