"A reclusive man, retreating to the Irish countryside with his sister, finds himself one day at the portal to another dimension. Years later, amid the crumbling ruins of his home, a pair of travelers find his diary and its horrifying details of the terrors that stalked his world--grotesque, swine-like monsters crawling from an abyss to swarm about the doors, fierce storms that threatened to unleash malevolent supernatural powers, and a harrowing vision of the death of the solar system."--Back cover
The night land : a love tale by William Hope Hodgson( Book )

55 editions published between 1912 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 339 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

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dr. Thorndyke is an early proponent of forensic investigation; and there is the blind gumshoe Mac Carrados; and gentleman thief Simon Carne; and Mr. Carnacki who is a detective of the occult. These men pit their wits against the best that London's underworld has to offer. Victorian London was a boon for crooks and a bane to Scotland Yard, whose job it was to keep the city safe from criminals
The ghost pirates by William Hope Hodgson( Book )

51 editions published between 1909 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Hope Hodgson was one of the finest writers to ver write horror. This tightly plotted novel is both compelling and terrifying. Do not read this one alone on a foggy night. The Ghost Pirates . . . is a powerful account of a doomed and haunted ship on its last voyage, and of the terrible sea-devils (of quasi-human aspect, and perhaps the spirits of bygone buccaneers) that besiege it and finally drag it down to an unknown fate. With its command of maritime knowledge, and its clever selection of hints and incidents suggestive of latent horrors in nature, this book at times reaches enviable peaks of power. - H.P. Lovecraft
