Finding the Graiken
by William Hope Hodgson

Click to Enter

Best known for the novel The House on The Borderland (1908), William Hope Hodgson (1878-1918), was born the second of twelve children of an Essex clergyman. As a youth he ran away to the sea. Though ocean life was extremely harsh and unhappy for years, it provided him with the raw material for books and short stories about life at sea.

His first novel was the eerie Boats of the "Glen Carrig" (1907), followed by the even stranger Ghost Pirates (1909). There have been several collections of his best sea stories including The Luck of the Strong (1916) and Men of Deep Waters (1917).

William Hope Hodgson was killed while serving with the Army in France in 1918. He is one of the most important and influential writers of the early 20th century.
