William Hope Hodgson’s back . . . in paperback!



Between 2005 and 2007, Night Shade published a five-volume hardcover set collecting all of early twentieth century fantasist William Hope Hodgson’s novels and short fiction. It was a popular release, and some of the volumes eventually sold out of their printings, fetching high resell prices from readers and collectors.

We get lots of email inquiries here at Night Shade, but near the top of the list of commonly-asked questions is: “Are you ever going to reprint the Hodgson books?”

Well, the answer is now YES: Following up on the well-received paperback reissues of our Clark Ashton Smith series, we’re following suit with Hodgson. All five volumes will be reissued in trade paperback, starting this month with The Boats of the “Glen Carrig” and Other Nautical Adventures, featuring a revamped series design from Claudia Noble, based on the original hardcover artwork from Jason Van Hollander.


Here’s the full cover for Volume One, as well as the table of contents—check it out to see exactly what you can expect to find inside:
