liked it

not nearly as spectacular (or spectacularly weird) as hodgson's The House on the Borderland, but it moves right along and does finally explode into full visionary horror mode in (fittingly enough) chapter thirteen, "the shadow in the sea," in and after which it is great. it's the kind of story that grows larger in your mind once it's done and just seems better and better and better. some pretty amazing imagery. over a hundred years old and still reads as completely original.
