The Boats of the "Glen Carrig" by William Hope Hodgson

The Boats of the 'Glen Carrig' - William Hope Hodgson

Though the writing is a bit rusty and crusted with sea salt at times, Hodgson's first novel is a sustained work of unrelenting terror that is a direct ancestor of Tim Curran's DEAD SEA. This is an excursion into the big unknown, filled with unimaginable horrors that the suthor never slows down to explain. He simply relates his tale of lifeboats lost somewhere off the nautical charts, letting the reader become one of the shipwrecked survivors, facing incomprehensible monstrosities borne from the depths of a nightmare sea.

Highly recommended!
