''all of his fiction seeks a natural, often scientific explanation, which makes his work closer to sf than fantasy, though the explanation is not always a solution, so that the supernatural is left as an option. This was most evident in his Occult Detective series about Carnacki, collected as CARNACKI THE GHOST-FINDER (1913). Although commissioned by the publisher to cash in on the success of Algernon Blackwood's John Silence (1908), Hodgson produced an investigator more scientist than psychic, though Carnacki relies on ancient manuscripts as much as modern equipment'' (Mike Ashley/Encyclopedia of Fantasy).
