New Review

Don D'Ammassa has posted his review of Set the Seas on Fire, and seems to have enjoyed it.
This is an old fashioned, lost world adventure story, deliberately paced, and it even has a volcano in it. It's a form I've always loved, but it's hard to find new ones nowadays. The cover blurbs compare it to Lovecraft but it felt much more like William Hope Hodgson to me. And that's definitely a compliment.



What did you think of the William Hope Hodgson comparison? I've never read him, so not sure how you compare.
I've only read a bit of Hodgson, but in this instance I think that's probably a more apt comparison than Lovecraft, in terms of the supernatural element in that particular novel.
