This is a seuel by other hands being based in the setting of William Hope Hodgson s The Night Land However I can assure you that it stands aloneIt consists of four stories three set in the Last Redoubt and a fourth set at a mysterious location that only slowly unfolds The first three have their time given in a line up front which tells us also how many years they are before the extinction of mankindThat is part of the setting All take place after the sun and the moon were lost and the sky so clouded to give not even starlight The Last Redoubt is besieged by monsters There are the abhumans savages creatures once human Night Hounds with teeth like sharks the Watchers enormous glacially slow in motion maliciously bent on the Redoubt the hooded Silent Ones and ghastly and malicious nightmaresYet there are those who venture out into the Night LandsTales of valor and love against that dark backdrop They involve a prophecy fulfilled exactly a pair of brothers arguing about whether something will lead to disaster a man in a scene from two memories conflated a backstory like Orpheus with a twist a woman who is tempted at a dance to forget her brother and much

CHARACTERS Awake in the Night Land

FREE DOWNLOAD Æ Awake in the Night Land AWAKE IN THE NIGHT LAND is an epic collection of four of John C Wright's brilliant forays into the dark fantasy world of William Hope Hodgson's 1912 novel The Night Land Part novel part anthology the book consi. I read the reviews of this on and thought I have to read it for myself I figured if it was half as good as they were saying it would be a good bookIt s far better than then I had hoped it s just as good as the reviewers claim The sum exceeds the parts it s a masterpiece made from smaller masterpieces Take The Mocking of Christ with Mary the Annunciate and Mary the Elder by Frans Schwartz for example The alter piece consists of five pieces depicting Christ being mocked by the crowds and plotted against by the rulers to either side the Marys with pain sorrow and adoration sitting and standing in the middle bruised and battered before His trip to the cross is Christ painted with a spirit of humanity and the divine Each of the pieces are works unto themselves but together they tell a much greater story with Christ at the centerSo to is this novel On the surface it s a horror sci fi not a blood and guts horror but along the lines of Lovecraft horror and a blend of the older sci fi novelists like Bradbury mixed with modern overtures especially for the ending storyIt s CS Lewis Chesterton Meville Tolkien Bradbury Hardy it s all these and and yet it s all WrightI had never read the original book however Wright paints the landscape and world with such skill and attention it doesn t seem to be necessaryAlright so enough with praise what s the book about Hope when there is no reason to hope Humanity in the face of inscrutable and monstrous inhumanity4 stories 3 set directly in the Night Land There the last of mankind is living in the Last Redoubt a seven mile tall pyramid of a metal made in ages beyond reckoning on the dying planet Earth long after the sun had spent itself out The technologies reuired to keep the place running are so ancient as to have passed into mythology and ritual understanding All around the Last Redoubt lies the Night Land inhospitable poisoned dark and filled with inhuman eldritch forces bent on wiping out the last of humanity seeking to destroy the body and consume the soul to all that fall under their powerThese forces are straight out of Lovecraft out of nightmares These things range from twisted creatures of flesh and bone such as the abhumans twisted animals like the Night Hounds and then there are things outside human understanding outside the normal bounds of space and time Whispering voices tempting the listener to venture outside the protection of the Last Redoubt and past a protective circle of Earth Current and into the domains of fell creatures monsters beyond human comprehension named only by their attributes The Silent Ones The Thing That Nods The Slowing Spinning Wheel just to mention a few Places like The Silent House where no sound has even been heard issuing forth for as long as humanity has been studying it and where men driven mad have gleefully ran into never to be seen or heard of again And then there are the Watchers behemoths the size of hills slowly slowly moving toward the mighty fortress advancing at a glacier pace and inexorable as entropy Alive and yet not bending their strange powers at the Great Redoubt for millennia Death will come to humankind it has been foretold to the last days the last stand the Last Child and humanity will be extinct in a dead universe ruled by beings of total malice and outside the laws of life and death And against all of this stands humanity s last home standing in the face of this doom peopled with untold millions human souls aeon after aeon in grand defiance of powers no human can hope to stand against much less overcome And these Things besiege the Last Redoubt for countless years like the siege of Troy a siege lasting for aeonsThe greatest minds of mankind toiling for millions of years can t do than watch the advancement the inhuman forces The very best they create the Last Redoubt was to merely slow down their extinction there was no solution to drive back the darkness no Ring to destroy no savior coming to fulfill prophecy no inventions with enough force to do than help one man possibly survive the Night Land It sounds like something out of fever dream born of a mind made unstable by forces dimly perceived at best And maybe the original was Wright then takes this forlorn hell and makes it his own The landscape unthinkable in it s alien nature hostile to all normal human sympathies and notions but the burdens the characters bear are wholly human they are our burdens of lost loves lost friends lost family paths of redemption paths of duty and honor the ageless cry of Why Why us Why me Why now and having hope beyond what can be seen and felt Wright deftly blends in Greek and Roman traditions the cornerstones of Western Civilization For me this grounds the book s heroes these are people who have lived than once and who we know and can recognize for they are us The inhuman fantastic world throws the humanity into sharp relief the story elements drawn from our past pulls the people even closer to usThe lights of the Great Redoubt shine forth defiant in the face of Things of unthinkable malice and incomprehensible force The light shines in the darkness a beacon to those in the Night Land illuminating the path when possible giving a means to orientate the wanderers toward humanity and all good things The light shines forth from the cities of Man millions adding their small light the greater whole and the darkness not understanding consumes all The light shines up until the end of humanityAnd that s just the first 3 stories the fourth is where Wright really taps into CS Lewis and Chesterton I can t summarize it without revealing too much It s tightly written tying together different ages of mankind and their stories into a whole that takes on meaning at the endI can t do this book justice it surpassed my meager skills to do so I only hope to add my voice to the chorus of supporters and not to mar the book s impact for other readers
