Here is the second ad page which appeared in the back of the 1921 Holden & Hardingham edition of CARNACKI. Like the previous page, it attempts to create demand for one of Hodgson’s other books which was also published by H&H. And, as before, it’s interesting to note because of the reviews that were quoted. Transcript follows the scan.

“A serious contribution to literature. Its quality is
excellent . . . ‘Through the Vortex of a Cyclone’ is a
description of one of Nature’s overpowering phenomena not
unworthy of the pen of Michael Scott himself.”–Times.
“No lover of tales of mystery and imagination that are
also good literature should miss this book . . . They grip
you, as Poe’s grim stories do, by their subtle artistry and
sheer imaginative power.” — Bookman
“These stories of the sea are enthralling . . . Mr.
Hodgson is a writer on whom the mantle of Poe has fallen.”
“In ‘Through the Vortex of a Cyclone’ sheer imagina-
tive descriptive writing reaches a climax. It is mangifi-
cently done.”– Pall Mall Gazette.
“In these stories of the sea Mr. Hodgson worthily main-
tains a well-won reputation of strength in the qualities of
imagination, mystic beauty and spiritual force.”
