The House on the Borderland by William Hope Hodgson

20 Jan 2006

I just received The House on the Borderland and Other Mysterious Places: The Collected Fiction of Willam Hope Hodgson, Volume 1 by William Hope Hodgson. The House on the Borderland is a weird and dark story that ranks up with Lovecraft’s best work; Lovecraft himself reviewed the story very highly. It is almost unclassifiable: it fits somewhere between dark fantasy, horror, and science fiction; think H. G. Wells in a fever dream, on laudanum. This edition, published by Night Shade Books in 2004, is wonderfully printed, with silver stamping on the leatherette cover, nice cover art, and a highly readable typeface. Best of all it is only $22.05 from Amazon and is eligible for free shipping. Someone in the publishing business may have lost money on this edition, but you can make out like a bandit on the deal. As my budget allows, I will be buying the other three volumes.
