      I loved the setting and the imagery -- it was Hodgson's appalling
      faux-medieval prose that made the book such a chore at times. (Morris
      and
      Eddison were much more successful in their use of language.) In the past
      couple of years, there have been two anthologies of recent Night Land
      fiction published, both edited by Andy Robertson. As always with these
      kinds of things, some stories are better than others, but they're worth
      tracking down.

      Greg Bear's _City at the End of Time_ (on the long list for the last
      MFA) is rather obviously indebted to _The Night Land_.
