I own that book as well - Mr. Hitchcock was a big reason I started reading in the genre as a kid - you are very welcome!

Does anyone remember this one? http://www.amazon.com/Alfred-Hitchcocks-Ghostly-Gallery-Hitchcock/dp/0394812263 I used to get it from the library when I was a kid. "The Upper Berth" really got to me.

A podcast of my favorite Hodgson story and a shout-out to MATANGO in the forums. It warms this fungus-lover's heart.

For those interested in more Hodgson, check out this guy's blog with occasional podcasts of readings (he's also updating and expanding all the Hodgson entries on Wikipedia)

http://hodgecast.blogspot.com/

There's some interesting and fun stuff to be gleaned therein.  Aside from his own readings of "A Voice in the Night" (compare/contrast), he's also done readings of the pirate romance/mystery story "Captain Dan Danblasten" and the entirety of Hodson's Sargasso Sea lost continent novel THE BOATS OF GLEN CARRIG from 1907 (which I'm currently listening to).

This is my personal 'Golden Age' of horror. From 1800 to about 1940 the writing world
, I think, produced the best of outlandish and autre horror writing. Maybe it is the
erudition of these late writers, Hodgson, Bierce, Chambers, Machen, Lovecraft, and
the rest. I feel much is lost in contemporary genre fiction, it is not so uncompromising
, subtle, intellectual, or even fun most of the time. The old school has always been able
to suspend my disbelief, I cannot say this of most present day attempts.

A classic story. I've always found stories about infections to be especially unnerving.  As several others have mentioned the narrator's "old man voice" was excellent.

P.S. Pseudopod needs a tag for stories that feature the word "fungoid." Let's face it - there is at least a 90% chance that any story that contains the words "fungoid" or "gibbous" is going to be good.
