The House On The Borderland

Authors: Richard Corben, Simon Revelstroke, Lee Loughridge

Publisher: Vertigo

Categories: Drama, Fantasy, Horror


Lending Period: 7 days


This classic novel of the weird supernatural, first published in
1908, was an important influence on H. P. Lovecraft. In the ruins
of an ancient stone house in Ireland is found the diary of an
elderly man who lived alone with his sister and their pets, and
who longed for his lost love. The diary tells of how the man
explores a cyclopean cavern beneath the house and fights off
swarms of white pig-like monsters pouring up from below. Then, in
a visionary sequence, he breaks through to an alternate space-time
dimension and sees a doppelganger of his house on a vast desolate
plain. The prose is hokey at times, but the strange mood evoked by
the other-dimensional setting is powerful indeed. As acclaimed
horror writer T. E. D. Klein says, "Never has a book so hauntingly
conveyed a sense of terrible loneliness and isolation."
