A NIGHT IN THE LONESOME OCTOBER.
Edition: First printing.
New York: William H. Morrow, (1993) dj. Hardcover first edition - A humorous tale covering 31 days in October, one which combines the bizarre imagination of this Hugo and Nebula award winning writer with the macabre artistic talent of Gahan Wilson. In the late nineteenth century, good dog Snuff lovally accompanies his knife-wielding master, Jack, on his midnight rounds through the murky streets of London. Dracula, Frankenstein, Sherlock Holmes, and others make an appearance here. The Publisher's Weekly review commented that "Zelazny handles this material with a charm few can match, and while this novel does not approach the depth of his best work like 'Lord of Light,' its deft, understated good humor and spare, poetic prose reaffirm Zelazny as one of fantasy's most skilled practitioners." 280 pp. ISBN: 0-688125085.
