“Carnacki The Ghostfinder”, though recognised as a classic of weird fiction, has for years been an extremely rare book. The first edition was published in 1910 and contained just six stories. After William Hope Hodgson’s death three more Carnacki stories were discovered and here, for the first time in paperback in Britain, is the Complete Carnacki.

I’m not the person to comment on these as it’s been years since I read this and the verdict was I by far prefer Hodgson’s non-Carnacki output, notably The Derelict, The Voice In The Night and the novels The House On The Borderland and The Ghost Pirates.
