In Memorium


awhhAs we celebrate Memorial Day here in America, let us also remember the life and sacrifice of William Hope Hodgson who died on April 19, 1918.  A Lt in the Royal Artillery Corp., Hodgson and another office suffered a direct hit from a German mortar shell which left barely enough for burial at the spot of their deaths.  Hodgson was just one of many writers who lost their lives during WWI, leaving us without the work they might have accomplished later.  He, and so many other millions through the years, have given their lives in service of their countries and to preserve our freedoms.
