    • The real shame here is that William Sloane only ever wrote two booksd now I ve read them both As he did with his first novel, To Walk the Night, Sloane once again deftly combines mystery, sci fi, and horror into an eloquent and suspenseful tale about an obsessed scientist trying to create a machine to speak with his dead wife Maybe I can track down the short stories he allegedly wrote


    • As an avid reader of the New York Review of Books, I keep an interest in, and am notified about, the books released by their publications arm New York Review Books I recently came across a blurb for their recently published omnibus of William Sloane s novels, which intrigued me enough to scout out one of his works, which I fortunately found as a freely borrowable ebook on openlibrary.Fortunate being an appropriate word, as this book rises above the ruck of the run of the mill SciFi and Horror wr [...]


    • I really enjoyed this book I found it in our room at the Queen Mary and ordered it online to finish Old time creepy with a lot of suspense Written in 1939.


    • Just finished this, the second and last novel by William Sloane Like his first, TO WALK THE NIGHT, it s reminiscent of Lovecraft, especially From Beyond But also like the first, and unlike Lovecraft, Sloane creates vivid characters and dialogue There s conventional suspense in this one, and a tremendous payoff to the McGuffin in the locked room, but this one seems less, somehow, than the previous Still, in his introduction Stephen King feels the opposite, so it may be a matter of taste Either w [...]


    • I always enjoy reading a book from long ago The edition that I got from my library was printed in 1955, with a first printing in the 30s Anyhow, I enjoyed every page of this horror mystery ghost story The setting is a creepy house at the end of a road in rural Maine What do you get if you put an eccentric electrophysicist, a cranky medium and a university professor in the same creepy house You get mayhem, I tell you But, seriously, this is a well crafted mystery that keeps you guessing until the [...]


    • Not as good as To Walk The Night, but still an excellent piece of literature Completely transcends genre tropes partially because they didn t quite exist to the extent they have over the last four or five decades I suppose There is an economic pragmatism to Mr Sloane s work that I enjoy in the same fashion I enjoy Fitzgerald and Hemingway.Highly recommended for fans of Cosmic Horror or Weird Fiction Especially if you re looking for something new in that arena.


    • Written at the end of the 30 s I found the writing style a bit clunky Had its eerie moments, and some creepy atmospheric bits It was fine.


    • William Sloane wrote only two novels, but they were both doozies The first, To Walk the Night 1937 , is a combination sci fi horror fantasy mystery tale concerning a mysterious, otherworldly woman Two years later, Mr Sloane came out with The Edge of Running Water, and this one, I feel, is even better It concerns an electrophysicist, Dr Julian Blair, who is attempting to construct an apparatus that will enable him to communicate with his dead wife The book takes place on a promontory on the Kenne [...]


    • This is an enjoyable, well written, old school, vintage sort of chiller No blood, hardly any monster But that s not the pointDespite the absence of suspense, it s the atmosphere and the thinking that do the trick here Forget any pompous description, any super SCI FI experimentation The topic and the object of the novel are pretty much surpassed now But this should not put you off.Yes the story is not entirely fresh in today s canons But the book does entertain you a good old way The slow unfoldi [...]


    • Richard Sayles, an Academic from New York City travels to a small town in Maine to help an old friend, Dr Julian Blair, who is conducting secretive research with the goal of communicating with the dead While staying there, a local lady is killed and the locals think it is connected to the strange experiments.The Edge of Running Water is a Horror story first published in 1939 Not surprisingly then, it has a very slow build up There is a large mystery aspect to the story as the group attempts to p [...]


    • This is the second book in The Rim of Morning collection It is another fine, intriguing novel, this one written in 1939.It is a wonderful mixture of science fiction, horror, and whodunit I m truly sorry that Sloane wasn t prolific because I thoroughly enjoyed both of his novels They are plainly and concisely written, but still have a nice elegance to them Stephen King wrote the introduction which is how I found out about these books and I can see why he is a fan Not everyone is capable of writi [...]


    • After his wife dies, a grieving physics professor embarks on a mysterious experiment in a remote farmhouse A colleague comes to visit and falls in love with the physicist s niece Meanwhile, the domineering assistant, Mrs Walters, has schemes of her own for the professor s research Although this came highly recommended, the book was really only okay It was very slow to develop and not very interesting It picked up somewhat at the end when the professor s machine was finally revealed There was als [...]


    • As far as I know, William Sloane only wrote two novels, both suspense mystery with a strong sci fi horror element Anyone who enjoys Lovecraft, but would like something a bit sophisticated, with real characters and a bit less of the overwrought HPL style, will enjoy Sloane The mystery is truly mysterious, and the characters less one dimensional than is usual for genre fiction of the 1930 s The plotting moves quickly, but gives nothing away a page turner.


    • Quite possibly the single most over rated piece of fiction I have pushed through in recent memory Trite, tepid, poorly paced and anti climactic No tension, the atmosphere was stilted and forced and I honestly did not care about a single character in the book.A quarter century of hearing about how fantastic this was meant profound disappointment for me Perhaps there was a reason Sloane wrote only two novels


    • More haunting and evocative than its predecessor, To Walk the Night, this novel is a meticulously crafted, vividly realized narrative that skillfully blends weird fiction, traditional gothic horror, mystery, and science fiction.


    • It would have been interesting to see if Sloane had written This and To Walk the Night are good early works, especially for horror books published in the 30s He was doing some interesting work, but sadly it s all he did.




    • Suspenseful story about a scientist trying to create apparatus to enable him to communicate with his dead wife and featuring a vividly created thoroughly evil female character.
