February Books 10) William Hope Hodgson

If you’re wondering how come I’ve read so many books in the last couple of days, I’ve been in bed sniffling and feeling sorry for myself, and getting through my “to read” pile. Anyway, this entry isn’t a review, nor a note of a book that I’ve read, but a note that I have officially given up trying to finish The House on the Borderland and Other Stories, by William Hope Hodgson, a review copy sent me by Infinity Plus. As noted several weeks ago, I read the three rather good short novels in the first half, but just couldn’t bring myself to finish “The Night Land” which occupies the second half of the book. I must now write a proper review for Infinity Plus, which has just published another (rather hostile) review that I wrote for them.

  1. Yes, I had fantastic results about a year ago with a cut of pork called ‘spiering’ in Flanders; apparently it’s the neck.

    I’m also a bit dubious about the hot sizzle, whether it is even really necessary if you’re not too bothered about having a crunchy crust.
