William Hope Hodgson actually spent time on the sea. He worked as a sailor in the very late 19th/very early 20th century, which was a time of transition (there were still sailing ships although steamers were taking over; and did you know that there was an entire class of steel-hulled four-masted windjammers? I didn't) as the Age of Sail gave way to the Age of Coal. (And then WWI broke out and he enlisted in the British army, twice, and was killed by a German shell in 1918 at the age of 40.)
