Some Odds and Ends


I regularly stroll through the internet and look for items of Hodgsonian interest.  Occasionally, I find a few things.  Here’s a couple I found today.

 

3345640-01The ComicVine website records a previously unknown to me appearance by Hodgson in a comic called CTHULHU #1 which was released in 2010.  I do not have a copy of this comic but the listing states that the story, “The Cursed Island” is by WHH.  This may be an adaptation of “Voice in the Night” but, if anyone could supply more information, it would be appreciated.

You can read the listing here: http://www.comicvine.com/cthulhu-1-vol-1/4000-427796/

Back on June 30, 2010, the UK newspaper The Guardian published a nice little article about Carnacki.  Showing once again that WHH’s occult detective continues to hold reader’s attentions.  The article is quite good but I’m sure that Tim Prasil would debate the often reiterated claim that LeFanu’s Dr. Martin Hesselius was the first occult detective!  You can read the article here: http://www.theguardian.com/books/booksblog/2010/jun/30/thomas-carnacki-supernatural-detective

S.T. Joshi informs me that the Hodgson volume of the Centipede Press Library of Weird Fiction should be available soon.  This will be a 900 page collection of Hodgson’s works and is a bargain at the publication price of $60.  Other volumes will include Lovecraft and Blackwood as well.
