A timeless classic oft-read and reread since its initial publication in London in 1908. The House on the Borderland by William Hope Hodgson, blends science fiction, fantasy, and occult horror in a potent mix. Now comics legend Richard Corben, long recognized in the field as an innovator and delineator of cosmic horror, and long-time collaborator Simon Revelstroke bring their considerable passion and graphic expertise to this stunning adaptation of this ageless horror classic. This is a must read for true connoisseurs of the horror genre - offering a phantasmagoric tour of the razor-thin line between fantasy and reality, life and sleep, hope and death
***************
To describe the plot of House on the Borderland is nearly impossible.
Based on the 1908 novel by William Hope Hodgson, it involves the discovery of a discarded diary by two youths on the run from some troublesome locals. Upon reading the tome they unfold a story of the house that once dwelled in that very spot, the titular House On The Borderland. The borderland, it seems, is a place where the walls between this dimension and others meet and what tries to come through from that other place is as horrifying as it is unexpected. The illustrated version here is hard to describe, yet even the visceral, haunting and always brilliant art of Richard Corben cannot begin to touch on the surreal and disturbing images painted with words in the original novel.
Bookended with the two boys reading of the discovered book, the main narrative follows the author of the diary, Byron Gault as he spends a lifetime (and beyond, but not how you think) battling the evils that threaten to overrun the house. Both endings, Byrons and the boys are as shocking as they are open ended, leaving you haunted and pondering the intricacies of this story long after you have put it down.
An added bonus is the foreword by Alan Moore who delves into the life of William Hope Hodgson and the novel itself in greater detail.

Is there a less bloated version of this available?!? For only having 102 pages the file size of 693.42 MB seems awful large -- that averages out to over 6 MB per page!

Hey RIO, good deal! The pages of the smaller version are around 993x1520 / 300 dpi which are just dandy as far as I'm concerned. (whew! makes me wonder how the jumbo version was scanned -- should be panoramic with dolby surround sound as big as it is!
