Summary

FNH Audio presents an unabridged reading of William Hope Hodgson's "The Derelict". When a storm abates, leaving the ship in need of repairs, the men set to work, only to discover another ship a mile off, a floating wreck, a derelict. Thinking there may be salvage to be had, they cross to the mysterious stranger. Instead of salvage, they discover horror and death, and possibly a clue to the origin of life itself.

Classic Hodgson brand of horror fiction

Hodgson's unique and terrifying monsters always deliver, so far above Stephen King's obscenities filled garbage.

Underappreciated Classic!

This was the first time I read anything by William Hope Hodgson. Excellent! I will have to read more.

Sludge isn't scary.

Would you try another book from William Hope Hodgson and/or Felbrigg Napoleon Herriot?

Don't think so.

Would you ever listen to anything by William Hope Hodgson again?

Maybe.

What aspect of Felbrigg Napoleon Herriot’s performance would you have changed?

I sort of liked the English accent, but made it a bit harder to follow the story.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Derelict?

Most of it.

Any additional comments?

Nope.
