The full playtext of Audience with the Ghost Finder will appear in Carnacki: The New Adventures, an anthology of new Carnacki stories by modern authors. So if you’ve got a taste for new interpretations of William Hope Hodgson’s ghost finder, this book is going to be well worth your time.
It’s forthcoming in print and ebook formats from Sam and Carol Gafford’s Ulthar Press, which also publishes Sargasso: the journal of William Hope Hodgson Studies.
Watch this space and/or Sam Gafford’s William Hope Hodgson Blog for info on release dates, pricing and so on as it’s released.
You’ll still be able to download Audience with the Ghost Finder in full for free from this site, but you’ll be missing out on the rest of The New Adventures‘ impressive table of contents. (Since my free ebook edition has six of Hodgson’s original Carnacki stories, and The New Adventures has all these brand new spins on the character and his investigations, of course I’m going to recommend grabbing both…)
Here’s the full table of contents for the anthology to whet your appetite:
