The house on the borderland ... by William Hope Hodgson( Book )

99 editions published between 1900 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A manuscript is found: filled with small, precise writing and smelling of pit-water, it tells the story of an old recluse and his strange home – and its even stranger, jade-green double, seen by the recluse on an otherworldly plain where gigantic gods and monsters roam. Soon his more earthly home is no less terrible than this bizarre vision, as swine-like creatures boil from a cavern beneath the ground and besiege it. But a still greater horror will face the recluse – more inexorable, merciless and awful than any creature that can be fought or killed
The night land : a love tale by William Hope Hodgson( Book )

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

William Hope Hodgson was born in Essex, England on November 15th, 1877. Over his short career he produced a large body of work which explored and covered many genres. From horror, to science fiction, to stories on the sea, where he had spent much of his early life. In 1899, at the age of 22, he opened W. H. Hodgson's School of Physical Culture, in Blackburn, England, offering tailored exercise regimes for personal training. Eventually the business shut down and he immersed himself in writing. An article in 1903 'Physical Culture versus Recreative Exercises' seems to be one of the first and the following year came his first short story 'The Goddess of Death'. It was the beginning of an intensely creative period in his life. When war drew its shadow over Europe Hodgson received a commission as a Lieutenant in the Royal Artillery. In 1916 he was thrown from a horse and suffered a serious head injury; he received a mandatory discharge, and returned to writing. Hodgson recovered sufficiently to re-enlist but at the Battle of Ypres in April 1918 he was killed by an artillery shell

He produced a large body of work, consisting of essays, short fiction, and novels, spanning several overlapping genres including horror, fantastic fiction and science fiction. Early in his writing career he dedicated effort to poetry, although few of his poems were published during his lifetime.
