The House on the Borderland

by William Hope Hodgson

I was about 11 ( I am now 49) when I choose this book. For the creepy cover, with a house shaped as a skull with ghouls and corpes coming out of it with eerie surrondings on a silver cover! I wasn't allowed to read this until a few years later, and I thank my parents so much for that.

It terrified me and inspired me in equal measure, I then went on to write the most macabre and menacing stories and poetry! I lent this book to one of my parents friends and never got it back and over the years searched a large number of book stalls and second hand shops in the hope I will come across it again. Now thanks to the internet this looks imminent, and to spook another generation!!

Author of the Day

Angela Roquet
Angela Roquet loves everything macabre - with a dash of comedy. She is also fascinated by world religions, the afterlife and mythology. This clearly shows in her work, where mythological characters tend to make an appearance, showing off their more mundane sides. Today, Roquet talks to us about what inspired her book, Graveyard Shift, why she has a female reaper in the leading role and how she used to raise eyebrows in public with the types of books she was reading.
