For this book, the literary critic August Nemo has chosen the two most important and meaningful novels ofWilliam Hope Hodgsonwhich are Carnacki, the Ghost Finder and The Night Land.
William Hope Hodgson'sworks both contain elements of science fiction, although they also partake of horror and the occult. According to critical consensus, in these works, despite his often laboured and clumsy language, Hodgson achieves a deep power of expression, which focuses on a sense not only of terror but of the ubiquity of potential terror, of the thinness of the invisible bound between the world of normality and an underlying reality for which humans are not suited.
