Re: The William Hope Hodgson thread

Yeah, the initial descriptions of what lay beyond the Great Redoubt are the parts I return to most often. Stunning.

Re: The William Hope Hodgson thread

Blackwood could write in beautiful, lyrical prose when he wanted to do so and when such prose suited the particular story. See The Wood of the Dead.--Shadenuat


I agree completely.

Re: The William Hope Hodgson thread

A Descent Into Egypt is a good example of Blackwood's potential for mellifluous prose. I don't see it mentioned often. In fact, I don't think I have ever seen it mentioned.

We need a dedicated Blackwood thread. M. R. James and Sheridan Le Fanu, too.

Re: The William Hope Hodgson thread

A Blackwood thread is a good idea. You should start one, James.

Re: The William Hope Hodgson thread

No need to start more threads when we've got some.
