This is a blog about the English writer, William Hope Hodgson (1877-1918). Known primarily as the author of four novels (THE NIGHT LAND, THE HOUSE ON THE BORDERLAND, THE GHOST PIRATES and THE BOATS OF THE “GLEN CARRIG”), WHH also wrote many short stories, articles and poems. Hodgson is acclaimed as one of the early voices in science fiction and horror and he has influenced many authors over the years. Writers such as H.P. Lovecraft and Clark Ashton Smith have sung Hodgson’s praises.
This blog will examine many aspects of Hodgson’s life and writing. Our goal is to promote a larger audience for WHH’s work as well as to encourage literary criticism. Comments and submissions are also welcome. Send them to the administrator of this blog, Sam Gafford, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
