That cupboard at Place of Hawks contained a William Hope Hodgson titled THE VOICE IN THE DAWN which was published in Deep Waters (Arkham House, 1967) as “The Call in the Dawn” I have reproduced the first of 14 pages below, and it has some interesting features. Dereleth had second thoughts on his proposed title “Son of Men” and he annotated it “Deep Waters” at top right beside the punch clip. The original author’s address “14, Queens Road, Cheadle Hulmes, Cheshire” has been crossed out with “From L.S. Hodgson, Loynton, West Yelland, Instno, N. Devon.” This was undoubtedly one of several Hodgson manuscripts submitted to Arkham by his estate for publication. “L.S.” was likely the author’s wife or child. Interesting does any read have anything to add?
