Commented on The Boats of the 'Glen-Carrig'

A wonderful, old-fashioned tale of lost sailors and their horrible discoveries of a weed-covered island in the deeps of the oceans. The dark and frightening continent is home to fantastic, terrifying fungi, tentacled monsters, and worse.

Commented on The House on the Borderland

A stunningly original work that suffers somewhat from long strange flights of interdimensional fancy in the last half of the book, but whose strange imagination carries some plodding passages and tensionless moments into success.

The layout of the tale reminds me of H.P. Lovecraft (and he cites this as a big influence), and the lengthy finale is reminiscent of _2001: A Space Odyssey_ in strange astral projection amongst the stars.
