The House on the Borderland

by

The House on the Borderland Cover

 

Staff Pick

A seemingly pleasurable fishing trip leads its members to a dilapidated house with a strange pit next to it. In the rubble, two members find a diary that reveals a bizarre story that transcends space, time, and dimensions. Published in 1908, The House on the Borderland was a watershed novel that severely influenced H. P. Lovecraft and other Weird Tales writers, and stands as the breaking point from the realistic ghost fiction of the late 1880s and the birth of a new cosmic horror genre. Outstanding!

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"The House on the Borderland (1908) — perhaps the greatest of all Mr. Hodgson's works — tells of a lonely and evilly regarded house in Ireland which forms a focus for hideous otherworld forces and sustains a siege by blasphemous hybrid anomalies from a hidden abyss below. The wanderings of the Narrator's spirit through limitless light-years of cosmic space and Kalpas of eternity, and its witnessing of the solar system's final destruction, constitute something almost unique in standard literature. And everywhere there is manifest the author's power to suggest vague, ambushed horrors in natural scenery." — H.P. Lovecraft
