Today, Эксмо publish a new edition of Roger Zelazny‘s classic A NIGHT IN THE LONESOME OCTOBER — perfectly timed for Halloween! Here’s the synopsis for НОЧЬ В ОДИНОКОМ ОКТЯБРЕ

Добро пожаловать в Лондон конца XIX века! Под покровом тумана этого промозглого октября сойдутся в Великой Игре известнейшие персоны своего времени, а также их питомцы-помощники. Наградой победителю станет возможность изменить весь существующий мир…

Великолепный роман-трибьют классикам фантастики и мистики от Грандмастера фэнтези Роджера Желязны!

The novel was recently published in the UK for the first time by Farrago Books. Here’s the English-language synopsis…

All is not what it seems…

In the murky London gloom, a knife-wielding gentleman named Jack prowls the midnight streets with his faithful watchdog Snuff – gathering together the grisly ingredients they will need for an upcoming ancient and unearthly rite. For soon after the death of the moon, black magic will summon the Elder Gods back into the world. And all manner of Players, both human and undead, are preparing to participate.

Some have come to open the gates. Some have come to slam them shut.

And now the dread night approaches – so let the Game begin.

Эксмо is also in the process of publishing new editions of Zelazny’s Chronicles of Amber series — the most recently released is the ninth book, KNIGHT OF SHADOWS.

Zeno represents Roger Zelazny in the UK and Translation, on behalf of the Zelazny Estate.
