Gothic Horror 2 concludes William Hope Hodgson’s Trilogy with “The Ghost Pirates.” The first two books, "The Boats of the Glen Carrig" and "The House on the Borderland” were published in Gothic Horror 1. Though very different in scope, each of the three books deals with certain conceptions that have an elemental kinship. The unifying theme seems to be the dreadful forces that lurk just beneath the veneer of what we, in immense folly, believe to be "reality". Malign forces may surface at any moment to drag us to destruction or worse. “The Ghost Pirates” tells the captivating tale of the ship "Mortzestus", an unlucky vessel haunted by "too many shadows". The palpable sense of creeping fear grows into climactic scenes, each one leaving the reader wondering how anyone will survive. This novel has been called ‘totally engrossing’, ‘a cross between an old-fashioned sea story and the cosmic horrors of H.P. Lovecraft.’ As an added bonus, Gothic Horror 2 also includes the chilling account of “Carnacki The Ghost Finder.” Hodgson’s stories blend horror, fantasy, and science fiction. As a beautifully written work of pure imagination, his work has few equals, and has been compared to the writings of Poe, Machen, and Blackwood. Enjoy a wild ride into the supernatural!

Our mission is to provide the world with beautiful, accessible, illuminating editions of classic horror fiction, introducing these chilling gems to new generations, making them gorgeously illustrated and giving you critical, historical, and artistic insights with every single story. This is one of those books. One of the leading names in classic weird fiction, William Hope Hodgson remains an influential and powerful storyteller, remembered chiefly for his nautical horror stories and for his occult detective, Carnacki the Ghost-finder. Hodgson's career - cut off prematurely in World War One - was extensive and elaborate, and this book contains the cream of the crop: the Sargasso Sea Mythos, a broad selection of his best maritime horror stories, printings of his lesser known strange tales (including The Baumoff Explosive and The Goddess of Death), five of the most striking Carnacki cases, and excerpts from two of his elaborate supernatural novels. Illustrated and annotated, these stories include episodes of fantasy, science fiction, horror, and mystery: floating stone ships, derelicts teeming with man-eating rats, ghost pirates, mutant weed men, carnivorous trees, parasitic fungi, were-sharks (you read that right), a ship with a heartbeat, a cursed room that whistles in the night, a castaway who refuses to let his hideous face be seen, freakish mutations, deadly ghost ships, bloodthirsty octopi, demonic hogs, and more. Hodgson's fiction reveals a level of anguished vulnerability that blends the cynical realism with fantastic romanticism, creating a borderland - a liminal doorway - that brings the anxieties of the every-day into contact with the fantasias of the nightmarish. The landscapes of his fiction - the weed-choked Sargasso Sea, the steaming South Pacific, Irish manor houses, derelict ghost ships - act as borderlands whereby these uncomfortable thoughts and existential pangs can enter into our world - to haunt and infect it. The illustrated, annotated stories included in this unique anthology - stories of fantasy, science fiction, horror, and mystery - are among Hodgson's best and will not fail to disturb, amuse, and inhabit your imagination. TALES INCLUDED in this ANNOTATED EDITION: The Grey Seas are Dreaming of My Death - The "Shamraken" Homeward-Bounder - Out of the Storm - From the Tideless Sea - Further News from the "Homebird" - The Thing in the Weeds - The Finding of the "Graiken" - A Tropical Horror - The Mystery of the Derelict - The Derelict - The Stone Ship - Demons of the Sea - The Haunted "Pampero" - Excerpts: The Boats of the Glenn Carrig - Excerpts: The Ghost Pirates - The Voice in the Night - The Baumoff Explosive - The Goddess of Death - The Valley of Lost Children - The Terror of the Water Tank - The Gateway of the Monster - The Horse of the Invisible - The Searcher of the End House - The Whistling Room - The Hog
