Tais Teng commented on a post on Blogger.
It is a nice game to make some sly references to earlier works of Hodgson in my own Night Land stories.
 For instance, while approaching the Lesser Redoubt:
 This was the most desolate of deserts, an ancient sea bed with a thick crust of salt. Fumaroles spewed poison gas and half way lay the ten mile long wreck of what had once been the sea-going palace of Chairman-emperor Carnacki. The Lesser Redoubt painted a black silhouette against a haze of fire.
( Any hero on the side of light no doubt has sons or grandchildren who are no good at all. Occult powers like Carnacki's can easily be misused.)
 Or a reference to the Derelict, when my protagonist is getting a glimpse of his former lives:
The next vision brought him impossibly far back, a white capped ocean under dismal gray heavens. A derelict ship was wallowing in the waves. Things crawled across the spongy hull, eyeless things with the flesh rotting from the bones.
