About the Book

British fantasy author William Hope Hodgson wrote the supernatural horror book The House on the Borderland in 1908. The book is a hallucinogenic description of a recluse's stay in a rural location and his encounters with paranormal beings and ethereal realms. Two men are taken aback when they come upon a peculiar abyss while on a two-week fishing trip in secluded western Ireland. They discover ruins and a journal buried in them on a rock spur above this hole. They read the journal. The journal's author describes himself as an elderly guy who has long resided in a historic building. A few months later, awful man-sized monsters with dead-white skin attack the House after emerging from a nearby Pit. Strong and intelligent, the Swine-Things are unable to enter; after a night and day during which the Recluse kills several of them, they vanish. He waits several days before leaving the House with Pepper to seek the previous gardens outside because he is scared of the dangerous monsters. The story closes with the guy in his study seeing the beast enter the Cellar through the trap door. After recovering from reading the journal, the two guys resume fishing without attempting to return to the terrifying abyss.

About Author

William Hope Hodgson

English writer William Hope Hodgson lived from 15 November 1877 to 19 April 1918. He wrote a lot of essays, short stories, and novels that fall under a variety of overlapping genres, such as science fiction, fantasy, and horror. Many of Hodgson's short horror stories are set on the water, particularly his collection of interconnected pieces known as the "Sargasso Sea Stories," and he exploited his experiences at sea to add realistic detail. The Night Land (1912) and The House on the Borderland (1908), two of his books, have more cosmic themes, although he also wrote other books about the horrors of the sea. Hodgson put a lot of effort into poetry towards the beginning of his literary career, albeit not many of his poems were published while he was alive. He also gained notoriety as a bodybuilder and some attention as a photographer. Aged 40, he passed away in World War I. The son of the Reverend Samuel Hodgson, an Anglican priest, and Lissie Sarah Brown, Hodgson was born in the Essex hamlet of Blackmore End, close to the city of Braintree. He was the second of 12 kids, three of them passed away before they could walk.
