I apologize for the lack of new posts on this blog but I have been very busy working on various Hodgson projects. These are beginning to come to fruition now so I hope to be able to get back to regular posting soon.
One of these projects is the second issue of SARGASSO: The Journal of William Hope Hodgson Studies!
Just in time for Hodgson’s birthday on November 15, comes the second issue of this popular journal. It is currently in the final proof stages and should be available to order on Amazon on November 15h for both print and Kindle readers. The Table of Contents is:
“Under the Skin: A Profile of William Hope Hodgson” by Jane Frank
“Carnacki Pastiche: A Bibliography” by James Bojaciuk
“Contemporary Views: Pieces on William Hope Hodgson from the Idler and the Bookman” by Phillip A. Ellis
“A Home on the Borderland: William Hope Hodgson and Borth” by Mark Valentine
“A Concluding Oink: An Abnormal Flight of Fancy” by James Bojaciuk

The cover art is once again by the very talented artist, Robert H. Knox.
It’s another full issue and sure to be very popular. Over 170 pages of quality material about and inspired by Hodgson. The article by Mark Valentine presents, for the first time, pictures of some of the houses that Hodgson and his family lived in towards the end of his life.
I’m very excited about this issue and about the resurgence in Hodgson overall. I hope you will enjoy the issue.
