William Sloane’s other novel.
In a lonely New England house, a grieving husband builds a machine to talk to his dead wife. It doesn’t work the way he expected…

Often lamented as an overlooked classic, this William Sloane tale about necromancy in coastal Maine was first published in 1937, one of two horror novels Sloane, a successful publishing executive, wrote during his life. I picked up this copy at the Green Hand Bookshop in Portland, Me., which I strongly recommend to all fans of horror, mystery, and affiliated genres. As a bonus, it’s in the same building as the International Cryptozoology Museum.

1967 paperback of William Sloane’s To Walk the Night (1937).
1955 paperback edition of William Sloane’s To Walk the Night (1937).
Looks like just another pulp paperback crime story… but it’s not.
William Sloane only wrote two novels and they’re both amazing.
To Walk the Night is a mystery—an entrancing and unnerving woman named Selena leaves a string of dead scientist husbands in her wake—but it goes off into all sorts of strange directions. There’s a radical reimagining of the physical universe with chilling implications, disturbed astronomers, raving physicists, science fiction, horror, paranormal phenomena, and even some Lovecraftian echoes.
Not at all what you’d expect. This is something different. A genre unto itself.
