A Night in the Lonesome October

A Night in the Lonesome October
Chicago Review Press; 9781556525605
   Price: $15.95 

Looking for an October read that's so funny, it's almost...spooky? Look no further than A Night in the Lonesome October, by Roger Zelazny, featuring wonderful black & white illustrations by Gahan Wilson. Narrated by Jack the Ripper's dog, October follows a group of mysterious characters (and their familiars, animal assistants who frequently meet and scheme amongst themselves), as they vie to achieve something nefarious on Halloween night. Zelazny strikes the perfect balance between eerie and funny, and Wilson's stylized and weird illustrations provide a wonderful counterpoint. Kirkus writes, "Zelazny perfectly blends horror, mystery and humor in this much-loved tale" and calls it one of "12 excellent horror reads for the month of October." A Night in the Lonesome October is also the IPG and Chicago Review Press office book club selection for October, so follow along with us as we uncover the mysteries of a book that has it all—animals, humor, supernatural creepiness, and the spooky Halloween spirit! 


Deadly Sanctuary

October is also a great time for reading about mystery, intrigue, and danger.  Deadly Sanctuary, soon to be a film, is a mystery novel that delivers thrills and chills. A truly pulse-pounding read for the Halloween month, Deadly Sanctuary follows beautiful, strong-willed reporter Kendall O’Dell, as she is drawn into an evil web of conspiracy beyond anything she could have ever imagined when she accepts a position at a small newspaper in isolated Castle Valley, Arizona. Her assignment: Find out why her predecessor mysteriously vanished while working on a story concerning the unsolved deaths of two teenage girls. Why is the sheriff so hostile to her inquiries? Why is the woman operating the local shelter for homeless girls so secretive? And how is attractive rancher Bradley Talverson involved? The film, featuring Rebekah Kochan, Marco Dapper, Eric Roberts, and Dean Cain, hits theaters in May 2015, so be sure to read the book first!

Chicago Review Press and Nite Owl Books are distributed by IPG.
