¶ Hodgson's first published book, a horror novel written in an archaic style, presented as a true account of the events encountered by a passenger of the ship 'Glen Carrig', lost at sea in the mid-18th Century. The novel is primarily a survival and adventure story with elements of horror, in the form of monsters, which may (or may not) have supernatural origins. A classic.
