The House on the Borderland
by William Hope Hodgson




Overview -
The House on the Borderland by William Hope Hodgson. "What were they, those Beast- gods, and the others? At frst, they had appeared to me, just sculptured Monsters, placed indiscriminately among the inaccessible peaks and precipices of the surrounding mountains. Now, as I scrutinised them with greater intentness, my mind began to reach out to fresh conclusions. There was something about them, an indescribable sort of silent vitality, that suggested, to my broadening consciousness, a state of life-in-death--a something that was by no means life, as we understand it; but rather an inhuman form of existence, that well might be likened to a deathless trance--a condition in which it was possible to imagine their continuing, eternally. 'Immortal ' the word rose in my thoughts unbidden; and, straightway, I grew to wondering whether this might be the immortality of the gods."
