The Ghost Pirates William Hope Hodgson (First edition)

Original red cloth, spine and cover lettered gilt. 12-page catalog at rear. Frontispiece illustration by Sidney H. Sime.

Science-Fiction, horror and fantastic fiction writer William Hope Hodgson uses his unique experience as a sailor, and his love of the sea, to add an air of authenticity to his work  The Ghost Pirates. Everett Bleiler described the value of  The Ghost Pirates in  The Guide to Supernatural Fiction, saying that it is ”one of the great sea novels… highly original in detail and well done. Although it is overshadowed as visionary horror by the more spectacular  The House on the Borderland and  The Night Land, as a work of art, it is finer.” This opinion is reaffirmed by celebrated author Robert Weinberg who said that the novel is “one of the finest examples of the tightly written novel ever published.”
