i just fuckin remembered i scanned this thing i drew a few weeks ago... i finished reading the house on the borderland while i was on the plane and then drew this bc it was immensely inspiring. that book has a LOT of really striking imagery in it.... it’s especially wild to read about something that closely resembles black holes that was written from before black holes were even THEORIZED
also JUST realized i wrote “borderlands” in the picture instead of borderland, whoops

"For to adventure is the lust of Youth; and to leave Safety is the natural waywardness of the spirit; and who shall reprove or regret; for it were sorrowful that this Spirit of Man should cease."

The Ghost Pirates by William Hope Hodgson
Hodgson is one of the authors that inspired H.P. Lovecraft's works. I love the type of horror in Lovecraft's stories, but I don't necesarry love Lovecraft. His stuff is really hit of miss for me, and I have been let down by quite a few of his works. So anytime I hear about something that might play around with a similar type of horror I am really curious to read it. I had never read anything by Hodgson, and I didn't know much about it, but I was fully sold by the very premises of this short novel. Pirates, ghosts, and the light horror of the early 1900s, is the perfect combo for me. Plus, if you know anything about me, I adore stories that take place in closed spaces where characters are trapped. Whether that is an island, an unreachable house, or a ship in the middle of the ocean, like in this case I just love this type of setting.
The story takes place on a "unlucky" ship, things seem to go on well at the very beginning of the trip, but slowly some sailors start to figure out that there are weird things happening, expecially at night. The chapters are short, and each one of them has at least one major event in it, so that you find yourself glued to the pages. I loved the way these weird events get bigger and bigger and add up to one another until the very end. It's a very simple story, don't expect anything too complicated, but I feel like it works perfectly because of that. It's a really good ghost story, and I loved the setting on a ship. At the beginning it was a bit hard to keep up with all the very specific words linked to the ship itself, because I am quite ignorant on the matter and I knew only the vary basis. After I got the hang of the vocabulary I had no issues. I must say it actually motiveted me to look for more supernatural stories set on ships, I really enjoyed it. It's not a scary story, although it's really interesting to see the terror slowly but surely plague the minds of the sailors. I definetly look forward to reading more stuff by Hosgson.

I find it surprising that in all the criticism I’ve heard regarding Lovecraft, not once have I seen any mention of the fact that much of his subject matter, and his style of writing in general - was a rehash of William Hope Hodson. 
Hodgson was a sailor who lived in the late 1800s and would eventually die in world war one. Most of his writing was a mixture of horror and fantasy focused on strange events happening at sea. 
However he also wrote some more explicitly “cosmic horror” style stories. One example is The Night Land where a 1700s dandy wakes up in the extreme future when the sun has gone cold and the last remnants of humanity are locked away in a pyramid shaped arcology. The world outside the arcology is literally a vast unknown filled with unidentifiable monsters seeking to extinguish humanity at a moments notice.

[ Headshot of the swinething by Kingofrats]
Very distinctive monsters from Hodgson's book [ The House on the Borderland, ](Did this du[d]e have anything against pigs?) that likely inspired Swinefolk of Darkest Dungeon.  Interestingly enough, most of their depictions from various people have tusked, boar-like mouths when the narrator specifically describes their mouths as (grotesquely) human-like.

Reading  "The House on the Borderland" and so far the real horror is what his poor sister is going through. Imagine you live alone with your brother, then one day he starts hallucinating for hours on end. Shortly after that, he starts charging around the house thinking it’s besieged by monsters only he can see. He forbids you to leave the house and locks you up when he thinks he can’t trust you. You don’t have a phone, or any means of contact with the outside world. Also, your brother has a gun. Terrifying.
