The House on the Borderland - William Hope Hodgson

Wow... i tell you, I've read some crazy stuff in my time. BUT this tale. takes all those Biscuit's and dunks them in Gin! in a really good way though! I got this book on amazon it had some other stories with it i've yet to read. But anyway back to this strange tale.



American horror writer H. P. Lovecraft listed The House on the Borderland and other works by Hodgson among his greatest influences. i can definitely see why. Let's get to the Nitty Gitty without giving to much away, two men on a camping trip in rural ireland ((Yay!)) stumble on a old manuscript a diary of sorts. it tell's an absolutely crazy story. and you the reader and totally drawn into the world of... The only way i can describe it is, mythological beast gods, demons, and other "bestial pig form.



Then it totally switches up and you have in the plot Green sun's and forever Twilight's.



This book left me with a really spooky uneasy feeling i've never quite felt with a book before. I could only imagine how it left people in the day's it was first printed! i felt there was so many unanswered question's to the book. all in all i really liked it.
