1913: The Night Land by William Hope Hodgson

July 25, 2008

Billions of years from now the sun has died out and darkness covers the land. Monsters are everywhere and toe-stubbing is at an all-time high. In search of his lost love, a single adventurer sets out across the unknown blackness of The Night Lands where he has adventures out the wazoo. You can’t see his wazoo, of course, because it’s dark. All this could’ve been avoided if God had used a General Electric EnersaveTM Yellow Sun. They last up to 5,000,000 years longer than conventional suns and use a fraction of the nuclear fusion.

On a scale of dark things ranging from the Dark Knight to dark matter, this book is: Doctrine Dark.

Also, there are giant Pac-Mans.
