Description
"In the 1930s, William Sloane wrote two brilliant novels that gave a whole new meaning to cosmic horror. In To Walk the Night , Bark Jones and his college buddy Jerry Lister, a science whiz, head back to their alma mater to visit a cherished professor of astronomy. They discover his body, consumed by fire, in his laboratory, and an uncannily beautiful young widow in his house but nothing compares to the revelation that Jerry and Bark encounter in the deserts of Arizona at the end of the book. In The Edge of Running Water , Julian Blair, a brilliant electrophysicist, has retired to a small town in remotest Maine after the death of his wife. His latest experiments threaten to shake up the town, not to mention the universe itself."

display_description "In the 1930s, William Sloane wrote two brilliant novels that gave a whole new meaning to cosmic horror. In To Walk the Night, Bark X and his college buddy Jerry Lister, a science whiz, head back to the old alma mater to catch a football game and to visit a cherished professor of astronomy. In the midst of the game, a strange inimical presence seems to grip the entire stadium; after, the two young men discover the body of their professor, consumed by fire; and before long Jerry is married to the professor's uncannily beautiful, young widow, Selena, and settled in the Arizona desert, where there's an unobstructed view of the stars--and of the darkness of space. In Edge of Running Water, Julian Blair, a brilliant electrophysicist, has retired to remotest Maine after the death of his beautiful young wife. After living as a recluse for years, he issues an urgent summons to a former student, Richard Sayles, now a well-regarded professor of psychology. At Setauket Point, Sayles finds a house shunned by suspicious locals and under the guard of an unpleasant and uncooperative housekeeper, Mrs. Walters. There is also stunning Anne, Blair's sister-in-law. Meanwhile, Julian, dead to the world, stays locked in his study. The Rim of Morning: two novels about the inescapable link between knowledge and sacrifice, the other, unspeakable, unknowable, unendurable side of the world we think we know. About the silence out there"--
