The Night LandBy W. H. Hodgson
The Night Land " - this fantasy of a night-black, dead planet, with the remains of the human race concentrated in a stupendously vast metal pyramid & besieged by monstrous, hybrid & altogether unknown forces of darkness, is something that no reader can ever forger" (H. P. Lovecraft). "One of the most potent pieces of macabre imagination ever written" - H.P.Lovecraft. Lovecraft wasn't wrong: this is, perhaps, the greatest single work of fantastic fiction in the English language. The sun has died, as have the stars. Not a solitary light shines in the heavens. The days of light are nothing by a legend - they are a story told to soothe children. The last millions of humans still live in their Last Redoubt - but the end of their days is at hand.
