A KNIGHT IN THE LONESOME OCTOBER was written specifically for a Lovecraft ezine Halloween issue in tribute to Roger Zelazny. It's a bit of a departure for me, in that it has a talking fox and other animals, but it's Arthurian, which I wanted to dabble in, and has a much lighter tone in general than a lot of my other work. This tale of Openers, Closers, and what might, or might not be the Holy Grail, was one of the most fun things to write and I often wonder if I could do a whole novel in this vein if I could get the rights to Zelazny's main ideas. In the meantime, there's just this wee story.
Did I get away with it? You'll have to read it to find out.
