William Hope Hodgson

The House on the Borderland

The House on the Borderland is a supernatural horror novel by William Hope Hodgson. He went beyond the existing ghost story and gothic molds, synthesizing a new cosmic horror that made a huge impact on later writers of weird tales, notably H. P. Lovecraft. The two gentlemen Tonnison and Berreggnog head to a village in Ireland for a week's fishing. There they discover the ruins of a strange house and the diary of the house's former occupant, the words on its torn pages hinting at an evil far beyond anything that has existed in this world before.

    🙈Ikke min kop te

    Esperaba una historia diferente. Hay capítulos que se me hiceron muy aburridos debido a las descripciones tan largas y detallada de las visiones del protagonista. Eso sí cabe resaltar la habilidad del autor para describir escenarios apocalípticos del cosmos. Sin embargo, repito, no es la historia que esperaba.
