#141: Storytime Edition's The Voice in the Night by William Hope Hodgson

schoonerIt's time for another Storytime Edition! That's right! One of my audiobook-style readings of various types of public domain stories. For today’s Storytime, I’ve chosen William Hope Hodgson’s “The Voice in the Night.”

William Hope Hodgson was a British writer with a penchant for the macabre. He spent a lot of his young life on the open sea, which gave him fuel for a lot of the stories he would write. After listening to "The Voice in the Night," you can easily find some of his other work like "The Boats of the Glen Carrig," "The House on the Borderland," or "The Night Land." His life was cut short during WWI, when he was the young age of 40.
