NIGHT IN THE LONESOME OCTOBER audiobook out now in Russia

Roger Zelazny‘s classic novel A NIGHT IN THE LONESOME OCTOBER has been released in audiobook in Russia! Published by ЛитРес as Ночь в одиноком октябре, here’s the synopsis…

“Ночь в одиноком октябре” – последний роман удивительного Роджера Желязны; считается одним из лучших в творчестве автора (номинирован на премию Nebula Award за лучший роман в 1994 году).

Сторожевой пес по кличке Снафф (англ. Snuff – Нюх) ведет свой дневник, где (не без юмора, рассудительно и временами с какой-то даже английской чопорностью) повествует о некоей Большой Игре, проходящей в Лондоне и его окрестностях, результатом которой должно стать открытие или закрытие Врат.

The novel is also published in print in Russia by Эксмо.

A NIGHT IN THE LONESOME OCTOBER was recently published in eBook in the UK by Farrago/Profile. 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.

‘The last great novel by one of the giants of the genre.’George R.R. Martin

‘A madcap blend of horror tropes and fantasy… There aren’t many authors who would set out to write a novel in which the Wolfman and Jack the Ripper were the two heroes… And I’m not sure anyone else could have made it work.’Science Fiction Chronicle

‘Sparkling, witty, delightful. Zelazny’s best for ages, perhaps his best ever.’Kirkus

‘A cheerful, witty, well-crafted fantasy… Its deft, understated good humor and spare, poetic prose reaffirm Zelazny as one of fantasy’s most skilled practitioners.’ — Publishers Weekly

‘Jack the Ripper meets Dracula, Dr. Frankenstein, Sherlock Holmes, and a few other choice individuals in this romp through the annals of literary horror and mystery… Zelazny’s quirky humor and Wilson’s appropriately creepy drawings compliment each other in grand style.’ — Library Journal
