Lexicon of Dread returns with a rendition of “The Voice in the Night” by William Hope Hodgson.

In the middle of a fog-shrouded night, somewhere in the Pacific, an isolated fishing schooner is visited by a strange entity.

With a coarse, inhuman voice, he pleads with the crew for desperately needed supplies of food. After his request is granted, he tells the crew a harrowing story of shipwreck and survival on a nightmarish island of otherworldly horror.

Can it possibly be true?

What kind of monstrosity has the survivor faced?

And why is he so desperate to avoid being seen?
