One of the classics in this genre but best read as individual short stories as the episodes can be a bit repetitive and long winded (but they were paid by the word in those days, weren't they). Viewed from the 21st century Hodgson's devices have a 'steam-punk- quality that's perhaps even more entertaining than intended.

I don't find Lovecraft's vision of the otherworldly visitors at all at play here. These are strange, dangerous, and ghostly apparitions, but their harm is almost always localized. Hodgson summons great Lovecraftian fear and awe in his excellent novel The House on the Borderland.

A great read for fans of early horror, detective… (plus)
