A tremendously faithful retelling of a classic tale of endless horror and eternal love and triumph. All the same wonder and splendor of the original, but with modernized and cleaned up grammar, actual dialogue, and much stronger characterization.

I'm a big fan of the works of William hope Hodgson, I remember plowjng through Hodgson's verbose and difficult original text, so it's with some relief that James Stoddard's excellent retelling exits at all. He's managed to make an unfortunately extremely unreadable book palatable for the masses, which is a good thing as hidden in the originals meandering script in a truly fantastic story. I did initially have reservations regarding Jason's narration however, I eventually warmed to his "accent " Well done all.
W.H. Hodgson's strange and quirky book has been made more readable in this re-written effort. This takes nothing away from the original story, which is a tremendous work of fantasy.
The reader is taken along on a quest through a dark and horror strewn world, where, against all the odds, a lone man ventures into the night land, guided only by premonition and hope, in search of his re-born former wife of an earlier time. No other work of fiction or fantasy is even close to this one, and whether you read this re-told version, or the original, you will be taken along on a journey through a nightmare land which will surprise and delight you.
