Return to the William Hope Hodgson
The Night Land by William Hope HodgsonDescription: A story set in the far future of earth when the sun is dying. This story is a century old, (written at the time of H. G. Wells) and is far more remarkable than anything of the period or potentially any period since it's publication. This should be recognised as a classic! Series:

"One of the most potent pieces of macabre imagination ever written" - H.P.Lovecraft.
Lovecraft wasn't wrong: this is, perhaps, the greatest single work of fantastic fiction in the English language. The sun has died, as have the stars. Not a solitary light shines in the heavens. The days of light are nothing by a legend - they are a story told to soothe children. The last millions of humans still live in their Last Redoubt - but the end of their days is at hand.
