Summary

“An epic novel with enough terrifying adventure to accommodate at least a few sleepless nights. All aboard—and highly recommended!” —Dark Bites   Under the subways’ roar, out of the deep, wet caves, comes the fury from Hell . . .   . . . to be met by an unlikely troupe ready to save the lives and soul of their city. In the bedrock beneath New York, beautiful news reporter Lya Marsden and hard-bitten detective Michael Corvino enter an eerie maze of abandoned tunnels, searching for a train that vanished with all aboard—over half a century ago.   But under the concrete maze of skyscrapers and tourists, below the peep shows and the penthouses, within the clammy darkness, and around the next turn—an unholy evil waits to disgorge violence and blood.   In Night Train, the urban decay of 80s-era New York City meets hordes of feral cats, a Subway Slasher, the occult, and an underground labyrinth full of primeval and modern monsters that threaten to swallow whole a four-hundred-year-old city and its inhabitants. What’s beneath their feet will shock and horrify till the last blaring warning of lost Train 93.  Praise for Thomas F. Monteleone   “Monteleone has a dark imagination, a wicked pen, and the rare ability to convey an evil chill with words.” —Dean Koontz, New York Times–bestselling author   “Tom’s an expert storyteller.” —F. Paul Wilson, author of The Keep and Deep as the Marrow   “A vastly entertaining novel of horror and suspense [that poses] difficult questions about the nature of man, God and the devil.” —Los Angeles Daily News   “The story is irresistible, moving to a mighty climax.” —The New York Times

    Classic horror from the prolific author of ghost stories and supernatural fiction, and thought by H. P. Lovecraft to be the best “weird tale” of all time.   “Algernon Blackwood’s novella The Willows uses setting like a master. This story is considered by Lovecraft and others to be one of the greatest horror short stories of all time. . . . I can tell you it creeped me out more than I thought it would. It’s a simple tale: two men traveling the Danube by boat end up stopping at an island of willows to pass the night, and they begin to realize that they have trespassed upon a land that does not welcome them, and isn’t really a part of our own world. I went in knowing that it greatly influenced Lovecraft, and the parallels in ideas and style are readily apparent in the last half of the story. . . . A beautifully written, enjoyably creepy novella.” —ChicagoNow   “Represents a high point in the development of the horror genre—in fact, horror master H. P. Lovecraft regarded it as the best supernatural tale ever written. More thought-provoking than gory or terrifying, The Willows is a must-read for fans of classic ghost stories.” —NPR.org   “Mind-blowing eeriness . . . [a] slow-thickening, vibrating, vegetable atmosphere of dread.” —Tor.com   “It’s easy to see why this story was revered by Lovecraft and others. It is a textbook example of the classic weird tale, evocatively conjuring the mystery and otherworldly dread that are the hallmarks of such fiction. It moves a little slowly, but patient readers will be well-rewarded with a deeply unsettling slice of cosmic horror.” —My Weird Life
