About the Book

William Hope Hodgson, an English author, collected occult detective short stories under the title Carnacki the Ghost-Finder.
The Grey Room, a chamber in an old mansion, was the scene of a gruesome murder many years ago. He underestimates the strength of the manifestation, and he spends a wretched, terrifying night within his electrified pentacle. In Ireland, a derelict home exhibits paranormal activity, including what seems to be blood falling from the roof. Carnacki assembles a team of strong neighborhood guys and many dogs for the investigation. According to a Celtic tradition, a court jester was once burned to death while whistling in the fireplace of the chamber. The chamber is then completely destroyed, with all of its components being burnt in a blast furnace inside of a protective pentacle that features an old Celtic inscription. There is a female firstborn for the first time in seven generations, and her fiancée has just had her arm shattered by an unidentified attacker. Carnacki looks into a haunting that has occurred at his mother's home. The tenant informs Carnacki about the house's enigmatic past and rumours of a ghostly woman. Carnacki spends the night at the chapel dressed in armour, his camera at the ready to capture any enigmatic occurrences. He had been hearing strange noises all night.

About Author

William Hope Hodgson

English writer William Hope Hodgson lived from 15 November 1877 to 19 April 1918. The son of the Reverend Samuel Hodgson, an Anglican clergyman, and Lissie Sarah Brown, Hodgson was born in the Essex hamlet of Blackmore End, close to the city of Braintree. He founded a School of Physical Culture in Blackburn, England, in 1899 when he was just 22 years old. Personal training exercise programs were available from the school. Police officers from the city of Blackburn were among his clients. "The Goddess of Death" was Hodgson's debut short fiction (1904). A Hindu statue taken from an Indian temple and placed in a tiny English town is the subject of a story that centers on a monument of Flora that was formerly located in Corporation Park, Blackburn. During the Fourth Battle of Ypres in April 1918, Hodgson was killed by the immediate impact of an artillery round. On May 2, 1918, The Times published an obituary of him.
