I will be writing a series of essays about the scientific, literary, and other influences on William Hope Hodgson's speculative fiction — the science most of all.

Part 1 of the first essay is up. It's called "The Fading Sun: An Examination of the Astronomy in The Night Land, The House on the Borderland, and H.G. Wells' The Time Machine."

The first part introduces the subject and covers The Time Machine.

After the latest update, my installation of Firefox on Linux quit loading the menu and header font. Since Firefox on Windows and every other browser correctly loads it, I believe they introduced a bug, and I'm not going to change the site to accommodate it. I switched to Chromium.

Under the Background menu there is now a Cosmos section, where I will be adding quotes from Mr. Hodgson's works (and perhaps a few others'): these will be the important that describe history or some important aspects of how the world works. There is presently one section from The Night Land involving the Days of Light.

I've added missing links to Brett Davidson's republished stories to the Timeline and the Chronological List of Stories, as well as his author page.

I'm now also working on the Multimedia Gallery. I'm not sure how long that's going to take — a few days, at least.

The Links page needs many links, also.

I didn't realize I hadn't put Mr. Davidson's fine story Imago back up until I was adding some links to the Timeline and discovered the story wasn't there to link to. It's up now!

We have a terrific new gallery of Night Land art by professional artist Jeremiah Humphries, who was much inspired by the stories of John C. Wright.

I'm starting to bring back the Others' Night Lands section, which was on the old site.

Our first entry therein, however, is a new story:

"For Every Lost Tomorrow", by Greg Gwyther, of Disciples of Solid Sound. It's about the Fall of the Lesser Redoubt. Not everyone, it seems, went gentle into that Dark Night. Many of our stories have a literary voice, but this one reads rather as if it were written by the working, fighting folk it's about.

On this site soon, we'll have a new story by Greg Gwyther. It's called "For Every Lost Tomorrow," and it's about the fall of the Lesser Redoubt.
