William Hope Hodgson was an English author born in 1877 in Essex, England. He was a prolific writer in the early 20th century and is best known for his works in the horror and science fiction genres. One of his most famous works is the novel 'The House on the Borderland,' which was first published in 1908.

'The House on the Borderland,' tells the story of an unnamed protagonist who discovers a manuscript written by a previous occupant of a remote and decaying house on the edge of a vast and mysterious abyss. The manuscript details the strange and terrifying experiences of the previous occupant, who is drawn into a world of cosmic horror and ancient evil.

The novel is a haunting and unsettling work, filled with vivid and surreal imagery. Hodgson was a master of atmosphere, and he creates a sense of creeping dread that lingers long after the last page has been turned. The house itself is a character in its own right, with its twisting corridors and strange, shifting dimensions.

But 'The House on the Borderland' is more than just a simple horror story. It is also a meditation on the nature of time, space, and consciousness. The protagonist grapples with questions of identity and existence as he confronts the horrors of the abyss, and the novel ends on a note of cosmic uncertainty that is both terrifying and awe-inspiring.

Hodgson's influence on horror and science fiction cannot be overstated. His works have been cited as major influences by writers such as H.P. Lovecraft and Clark Ashton Smith, and his contributions to the genre have been recognized by the Bram Stoker Awards and the World Fantasy Awards.

'The House on the Borderland' remains a classic work of horror and science fiction, and a testament to William Hope Hodgson's skill as a writer.
