“A classic of the first water.” —H. P. Lovecraft In rural Ireland, two travelers stumble upon the ruins of a lakeside home. Inside, they discover a diary detailing the terrible final days of a man known only as the Recluse. A scholar who bought the house for its isolation, the Recluse is plagued by strange sounds and terrible hallucinations soon after he moves in. He dreams of an eerie “Plain of Silence,” where a jade-green version of the house is surrounded by ominous mountains populated with mythical beasts and gargantuan monsters. Exploring a nearby ravine known locally as the Pit, the Recluse and his loyal dog, Pepper, are attacked by a creature that appears to be half human and half swine. A fantasy reunion with his long-lost lover proves that the house has powers beyond the Recluse’s comprehension. And just when he thinks that the horror is finally over, the real nightmare begins. Dripping with tension and atmosphere, The House on the Borderland is a landmark of supernatural horror and one of the scariest stories ever told.

The night land by William Hope Hodgson ( )
44 editions published between 1912 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The sun has died, as have the stars. Not a solitary light shines in the heavens. The days of light are nothing but a legend-- they are a story told to soothe children. The last millions of humans still live in their Last Redoubt, but the end of their days is at hand. ... Beyond the Last Redoubt, though, the world is a mystery as unknowable as the depths of space. Bits of it still live-- there are creatures in the endless darkness remotely akin to humanity. Fires burn and shadows creep; cities and lights lie still; clothed and shrouded walkers glide in the darkness. Other creatures, vaster than hills and slower and more ponderous than glaciers, wait eternally for some unknowable apocalypse. Forces stir in the darkness. Messages pass across the Land. From their tower above the Redoubt, the Monstruwacians record it all--Publisher's description
