About Xavier Aldana Reyes


William Hope Hodgson (1877-1918) is renowned as a master of nautical mystery and horror stories, which possess a unique authenticity due to Hodgson's youth spent at sea and in the navy. He is also celebrated as the creator of the memorable occult detective character, Carnacki. Hodgson wrote many classic ghost and sea stories before his death near Ypres during the First World War.
