The House on the Borderland

William Hope Hodgson

Availability: In Print – Paperback, Out of Print – Hardback

I am an old man. I live here in this ancient house, surrounded by huge, unkempt gardens.”

An exiled recluse, an ancient abode in the remote west of Ireland, nightly attacks by malevolent swine-things from a nearby pit, and cosmic vistas beyond time and space. The House on the Borderland has been praised by China Miéville, Terry Pratchett, and Clark Ashton Smith, while H. P. Lovecraft wrote, “Few can equal [Hodgson] in adumbrating the nearness of nameless forces and monstrous besieging entities through casual hints and significant details, or in conveying feelings of the spectral and abnormal.”

“Almost from the moment that you hear the title,” observes Alan Moore, “you are infected by the novel’s weird charisma. Knock and enter at your own liability.” The House on the Borderland remains one of Hodgson’s most celebrated works. This new edition features an introduction by Alan Moore, an afterword by Iain Sinclair, and illustrations by John Coulthart.
