The House on the Borderland

The House on the Borderland by William Hope Hodgson
By: (1877-1918)

The House on the Borderland by William Hope Hodgson is a haunting and eerie tale that will leave readers on the edge of their seats. The story follows an unnamed narrator who discovers a mysterious manuscript detailing the experiences of an old man living in a remote house on the edge of a vast abyss.

Hodgson does a fantastic job of creating a sense of dread and unease throughout the novel, as the narrator reads about the strange and otherworldly events that occur in the house. The vivid descriptions of the bizarre and otherworldly creatures that inhabit the surrounding area only add to the sense of unease, making the reader question what is real and what is merely a figment of the old man's imagination.

The House on the Borderland is a chilling tale that will leave readers questioning the nature of reality and the existence of forces beyond our understanding. Hodgson's evocative prose and masterful storytelling make this a must-read for fans of horror and supernatural fiction.

Book Description:

In 1877, two gentlemen, Messrs Tonnison and Berreggnog, head into Ireland to spend a week fishing in the village of Kraighten. While there, they discover in the ruins of a very curious house a diary of the man who had once owned it. Its torn pages seem to hint at an evil beyond anything that existed on this side of the curtains of impossibility. This is a classic novel that worked to slowly bridge the gap between the British fantastic and supernatural authors of the later 19th century and modern horror fiction. Classic American horror writer H. P. Lovecraft lists this and other works by Hodgson among his greatest influences.

I was doubly entertained by this story. First by the spooky atmosphere and then by the philosophical delving and an adventure that took me much farther than I expected to go.
