A Night in the Lonesome October

by Roger Zelazny
Release date: 1993
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasy, horror

Illustrated by Gaham Wilson.

Nebula Award nominee 1994.

Narrated by Snuff, loyal watch dog and companion of Jack, A Night in the Lonesome October details the sometimes poignant, sometimes macabre, and pervasively charming actions of an array of characters drawn from classic horror and folklore sources.

Snuff interacts with a witch, a druid, a werewolf, Sherlock Holmes, Count Dracula, Dr. Frankenstein and his gentle yet ungainly creation, and several others readily recognizable from a rich tradition of literature.

These Players in "the Game" collaborate and plot, make alliances and murder enemies, all with an eye on the final ritual to take place on Halloween night under the full moon, the combination which drew them to the appropriate area to engage in contest.
