Erik Larson seems to have nailed the art of bringing dark history to life, based on how often our Facebook followers exclaim over The Devil in the White City.

Now, he’s ready to publicly branch into the world of spooky fiction.

The New York Times reports that Larson spent a decade toying with a story he’d written about 19th-century psychologist, philosopher, and ghost-hunter William James (brother of novelist Henry).

He kept it under wraps, for fear of confusing fans of his nonfiction, but recently decided to release it as an audio exclusive.

The novella, No One Goes Alone, will come out September 28; you can read more about Larson’s inspiration for his new ghost story and how it fits into current publishing trends in the NY Times.
