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 Society's 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.

There’s a good reason Civil War veteran Trevor Lawson travels by night: he’s a vampire. Wounded at the Battle of Shiloh, he was bitten by the vampire LaRouge, and now, a quarter century later, he lives a tortured life, the humanity slowly draining out of him. His only hope: find LaRouge and kill her before he has completely turned from man to vampire. When a man begs Lawson to ransom his daughter from the clutches of a madman (a madman who, by the way, specifically required that Lawson deliver the ransom), Trevor hopes this is his chance to save himself. McCammon demonstrates once again—not that any proof was needed at this point—that he is one of the masters of the horror genre. The novel is brief but not thin. Lawson is a tragic hero, and his story is hauntingly sad. Subtext counts for a lot here: McCammon knows his readers will be familiar with vampire lore, and he knows that our imaginations will provide the dark atmosphere and the creeping terror, with only a few, well-chosen words to get us in the right frame of mind. A must for horror fans. --David Pitt
