From Subterranean Press:
I Travel by Night marks Robert McCammon's triumphant return to the sort of
flamboyant, go-for-broke horror fiction that has earned him an international
reputation and a legion of devoted fans. The terrors of the Dark Society, the
gothic sensibilities of old New Orleans, and the tortured existence of the
unforgettable vampire adventurer Trevor Lawson all combine into a heady brew
that will thrill McCammon's loyal readers and earn him new ones as well.
For Lawson, the horrors that stalked the Civil War battlefield at Shiloh were
more than just those of war. After being forcibly given the gift of undeath by
the mysterious vampire queen LaRouge, Lawson chose to cling to what remained of
his humanity and fought his way free of the Dark Societys clutches. In the
decades since, he has roamed late nineteenth-century America, doing what good
he can as he travels by night, combating evils mundane and supernatural, and
always seeking the key to regaining a mortal life.
That key lies with his maker, and now Lawson hopes to find LaRouge at the heart
of a Louisiana swamp with the aid of a haunted priest and an unexpected ally.
In the tornado-wracked ghost town of Nocturne, Lawson must face down monstrous
enemies, the rising sun, and his own nature. Readers will not want to miss this
thrilling new dark novella from a master storyteller.
