A Night in the Lonesome October by Roger Zelazny

A Night in the Lonesome October by Roger Zelazny

This is my favorite book.  As a voracious reader and librarian, I understand the gravity of this statement.  I was first introduced to this novel in 7th grade, and fell in love immediately.  Zelazny takes many of literary horror’s greatest characters (Dr. Frankenstein, Dracula, etc.) and puts them in an intense month-long competition – a mysterious game that has dramatic, earth-shattering consequences.  Part of the joy is in the discovery, but as someone who re-reads this book every year, I can say with certainty that there is great pleasure in reading this book to get in the Halloween spirit!  And I have not even mentioned the eye-popping Gahan Wilson art scattered throughout!  If you enjoy Halloween as much as I do, you will love this novel.
