In 1877, two gentlemen, Messrs Tonnison and Berreggnog, head into Ireland to spend a week fishing in the village of Kraighten. While there, they discover in the ruins of a very curious house a diary of the man who had once owned it. Its torn pages seem to hint at an evil beyond anything that existed on this side of the curtains of impossibility. This is a classic novel that worked to slowly bridge the gap between the British fantastic and supernatural authors of the later 19th century and modern horror fiction. Classic American horror writer H. P. Lovecraft lists this and other works by Hodgson among his greatest influences.
Excellent reader, more science fiction than ghost story though
This is a great and fantastical story that is very eventful and thought-provoking. The narrator does a great job as well. Highly recommended!
A most unusual, amazing, wonderful story. Great reader!
Gothic atmosphere plus strange creatures and an unexpected slingshot into the spaces between worlds make for a nightmarish vacation for the protagonists.
I was doubly entertained by this story. First by the spooky atmosphere and then by the philosophical delving and an adventure that took me much farther than I expected to go.
A story that will hold your attention. One excellent reader for all chapters of the book.
