Awake in the Night Land Read & Download ✓ 105 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. John C Wright is not for everybody and a series of novellas set in the same realm as an obscure early piece of weird fiction that almost nobody today has read is probably even less for everybody but I loved this anthology to bits and pieces figuratively because it was an ebook and I would be sad if my e reader no longer functionedWright captures perfectly the awful grandeur of William Hope Hodgson s creation the last bastion of humanity besieged in its seven mile tall Redoubt on a world populated by eldritch horrors unlit by any but the most ghastly of flames He captures it perfectly and expands upon it imagining the societies that must have lived or rather will have lived there the trials they face the decisions for good and evil that they makeMy favorite story was the first Awake in the Night Land with a truly beautiful redemptive ending that improves on Hodsgon s vision The second Cry of the Night Hound impressed me with a new take on a very old story I won t tell you which one because even though the clues are pretty obvious in retrospect it still took me half the tale to figure it out and I enjoyed the discovery so much I would never take that thrill away from someone else The third tale Silence of the Night included some of the most horrifying imagery I have ever encountered and chilled me to the roots of my soul The fourth and final tale The Last of All Suns was an interesting departure from the Night Land proper and included some John C Wright y elements like mashing together lots of different genre tropes and characters and making them all interact with each other it was fun and weird and terrifying and profoundIf I have one uibble I do here it is it was the profusion of typographical especially in the last tale Perhaps a later edition can correct that fairly minor flaw

Interconnected novelettes set in the far future 22 million years away where humanity is dying upon a darkening EarthThis is not so much SF as weird talehorror with some science ish trappings As I read them I cannot stop critiuing their likelihood and logic For one thing these stories are set millions of years before the world would end A million years is a long time guys The entire length of human civilization is not a 10th that at present and the events of even one thousand years away seem unfathomably distant On an individual level we can barely care about what will happen in a couple of decades And yet these people are all miserable and deflated bewailing their doom and behaving as though imminent destruction is just around the corner Were I faced with the knowledge that humanity will end in 7 million years I ll be living my life just as carefree as if there is no prophecy thanks muchAnd how little do these societies seem to change although they jump aeons between each story And how little humans seem to change physically biologically through out the aeons despite their landscape and daily existence having changed drastically OK the 3rd story mentions multiple iterations of Mankind throughout the years so there s that But for all these different iterations they seem to act and think much like previous versions Always patriarchal always and constantly consulting ancient books for lost knowledge and full of the same rituals and moralitiesAnd what even constitutes human anyway Stories like these always make me think of Planet of the Apes What for example would everything look like from the Silent Ones perspective Or the abhumans who are cast aside or eliminated just because they have adapted to survive in the new darkness intelligent and yet designated as evil and cruelBut then I slap myself upside the head remind myself of the Dying Earth and Cthulhu and a host of similar stories and returned to the stories themselves The Manichean nature of these forces bother me An eternal evil aligned against mankind Why Because A wild surmise bc darkness hates the light and death hates life These dainty women with their hair tendrils fingernail scraping on chalkboardThe second story is an iteration of mad Antigone determined to bring her dead brother s body back to Thebes for a proper burial I ve never understood her insistence and I do not understand the stubbornness of this chick eitherIn the third story an iteration of Aeneas bearing his aged father away from the destruction of Troy one of these namelessly evil creatures tells the hero they intend to torture and degenerate humanity slowly and will torment even its ghosts for eternity Why Just because Feh It is entirely possible that while I appreciate his writing capabilities very much Wright and I have a fundamental disagreement of sensibilities For the last story humans throughout the ages are resurrected some 15 billions years into the future in the death throes or creation of the universe itself They are on a ship falling at lightspeed toward the zero point the Big Bang with time breaking down and becoming so uncertain that uantum physic rules expand from micro effects to macro A lyrical imagining based on very hard science of how the endbeginning of the universe may look to our puny perspectiveThis story I like the best for it explains many hidden assumptions built into the previous 3 stories provided a variety of vastly different perspectives and speech patterns that interacted with one another and is the last mystery left to be solved ever Very fun set upOf course the ultimate resolution is way mushier as these stories always are and with religious overtonesview spoiler although with a twist and maybe sly dig bc the forces of evil inserted a fake Biblical figure to fool the protagonists into believing in their original sin but it s of a dig at orthodox religion than with the godhood itself hide spoiler
