Extra review sounds like Halloween novel

Dust Jacket for Journey in the Dark 1st edition notes it won 1943 Harper PrizeOn Tuesday, I’m going to run one of my occasional extra reviews of vintage novels that didn’t make the bestseller list when they were first published but have made names for themselves since.

Since Halloween is right around the corner, I’ve chosen a novel that sounds like it ought to be reading for Halloween: Journey in the Dark.

Come back Tuesday to find out if novelist Martin Flavin’s 1943 novel is about ghosts or vampires and to discover why it won the Pulitzer Prize in 1944.
