John E. O. Stevens, Fred Kiesche and Jeff Patterson gather for the SECOND episode of December! This time out they are joined by Karen Burnham to talk about William Hope Hodgson’s classic The House on the Borderland. Topics include the novel’s unique storytelling, possible interpretations, and where it falls in the spectrum of SF/F.
Fred has posted a companion piece to this episode on his blog as an introduction to both Hodgson and the book.
And even though we discussed our recent genre culture consumed in last week’s episode, we still manage to have more to talk about.
