Review: The Room at the Bottom of the Stairs by Robert McCammon

The Room at the Bottom of the Stairs is a Michael Gallatin* novella from Robert McCammon.  *The werewolf from McCammon's The Wolf's Hour.

The Room at the Bottom of the Stairs was originally published with the recent limited edition of The Wolf's Hour.  If the limited edition is not in your possession - perhaps like me you already own an older edition of The Wolf's Hour - I have great news for you.  Subterranean Press has The Room at the Bottom of the Stairs available on their website for free.

Description

“The Room at the Bottom of the Stairs” tells of an impossible, ultimately tragic love affair set in the embattled city of Berlin during the latter stages of World War II. 

The Room at the Bottom of the Stairs is a stand alone novella.  You don't have to read The Wolf's Hour in order to enjoy The Room at the Bottom of the Stairs.

It is no surprise (to me) that I enjoyed The Room at the Bottom of the Stairs. My only regret is this intense longing for more.  I can only imagine that is Subterranean Press's evil plan in offering this novella for free.

The Room at the Bottom of the Stairs will be re-released as part of The Hunter from the Woods due out in November.  The Hunter from the Woods contains a total of six Michael Gallatin stories.

If you are a fan of McCammon or want a great (free!) Nazi Gestapo romance thriller with a touch of lycanthropy - download The Room at the Bottom of the Stairs here.

  2. Check the very bottom line that says "Read the thrilling World War II adventure novella, The Room at the Bottom of the Stairs" in bold. There are two links (mobi and epub). Try that!

  4. Thanks for bringing this to my attention, too! I LOVED Wolf's Hour. I had to pass on limited, too pricy right now. But that short collection is very tempting!
