As well as four classic fantasy novels and a series of "occult detective" stories, William Hope Hodgson (1877-1918) produced a large number of sea-faring tales, many of them steeped in elements of supernatural terror. Hodgson's vividly drawn descriptions of revulsive oceanic entities often pre-echo Lovecraft in their evocation of squamous, deep-six deliria, while the latter also acknowledged Hodgson's masterful evocations of elemental disquiet and disorder. HORRORSâ ^FROMâ ^HAUNTEDâ ^SEAS not only collects all of Hodgson's acclaimed "Sargasso Sea" tales -- From The Tideless Sea, The Mystery Of The Derelict, The Thing In The Weeds, The Finding Of The Graiken, and The Voice In The Dawn -- but also presents a further 15 stories and episodes of nautical mystery and horror, including A Tropical Horror, The Voice In The Night, Out Of The Storm, The Stone Ship, Demons Of The Sea, The Albatross, and numerous others. The stories are reproduced in chronological order according to year of publication, making this perhaps the definitive edition of William Hope Hodgson's weird oceanic tales. The Voice In The Night was famously filmed in 1963 by Japanese director Ishirá´ Honda, under the title Matango (aka Attack Of The Mushroom People).

Review quote

"Few equal Hodgson in adumbrating the nearness of nameless forces and monstrous besieging entities, or in conveying feelings of the spectral and the abnormal" --- H.P. Lovecraft
