Hodgson ran away to sea at the age of thirteen and eventually assisted in the Merchant Marine. After a failed business venture he decided to support himself by writing. His early works, The Voice in the Night and The Boats of the Glenn Carrig, were based on his experiences at sea.

Hodgson’s works are chiefly of the ‘occult’ or ‘horror’ modes. Despite his frequently-labored and clumsy language, there is a critical consensus that he achieves a deep energy of phrase, which focusses on a sense not only of terror but of the ubiquity of potential terror, of the thinness of the invisible bound between the world of normalcy and an underlying reality for which humans are not suited.

His two chief achievements are the novels The House on the Borderland, referred to by H. P. Lovecraft as “a classic of the very first h2o”, and The Night Land, a somber vision of a sunless far-future world. He as well designed the “detective of the occult” Thomas Carnacki, who appeared in a lot of quick stories.

Hodgson was killed at Ypres in 1918.
