The Night Land (1912) is a terrifying tale of romance and fantasy in which William Hope Hodgson imagines humanity at the end of the world. Noted for its creative exploration of concepts such as telepathy, futuristic technologies, and reincarnation, Hodgson's novel is an indisputable classic of literary science fiction. When a widower dreams of Earth in a far-off future, what he sees is nearly unrecognizable. The sun has been extinguished, and all human life has been forced to gather within the Last Redoubt, a metal pyramid looming miles above the darkened planet. Outside, monstrous forces gather, waiting for the mysterious energy source powering humanity's last refuge to die out. When the narrator unexpectedly connects with a young woman telepathically, he makes the horrifying choice to leave the safety of the pyramid in order to search for her at the rumored Lesser Redoubt, long thought lost to the dark. The Night Land journeys to the outer reaches of space and time to see how far humanity will go to keep love, and itself, alive. Complex and kaleidoscopic, William Hope Hodgson's The Night Land is a classic story of romance and loss projected into a harsh, unpredictable future. It is often considered a seminal work in the Dying Earth or apocalyptic subgenre of science fiction and fantasy. For its strange blend of futuristic imagery and archaic narration, the book was initially deemed difficult to read. However, as time has passed, and with the help of positive reviews by such figures as H.P. Lovecraft, The Night Land is now appreciated for the depths of its vision and the experimental nature of its form. For modern readers, who face the daily reality of a deadly pandemic and a future threatened by global climate disaster, Hodgson's work can only prove timely. For fans of classic science fiction, horror, and fantasy, The Night Land is a guaranteed hit. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this new edition of William Hope Hodgson's The Night Land is a classic work of science fiction reimagined for modern readers.
