HAPPY BIRTHDAY, WILLIAM HOPE HODGSON!!!


Yes, today is Hodgson’s birthday!  He was born on November 15, 1877, to parents Samuel and Lizzie Hodgson at St. Mary the Virgin, the Blackmore End District Church of the Parish of Wethersfield.

William, known as “Hope” to his friends and family, was the second of twelve children, three of whom would die in infancy.  It is difficult at this point to speculate about the type of life young Hope had but we can join in wishing this amazingly creative and imaginative writer a “Happy Birthday” on what would have been his 135th birthday!

Cheers!

William Hope Hodgson

  1. From one of his posthumous publishers I want to wish him a happy birthday, one of his stories is in the Edgar Allan Poe Museum with the anthology Nickolaus Albert Pacione Delivers: A Library Of Unknown Horrors. If you want the pdf of this let me know but don’t distribute this.

    To mr. Hodgson! Literally, because I am sitting in front of my computer with a glass of an excellent red wine I drink now and then. 🙂
