Review quote

"An old-fashioned story written with a contemporary sensibility... Terrific!" - Charles de Lint (The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction)"To be read and shared and loved." - Joe Hill"Crowther's twisted rapture is a fast-paced, character-driven, funny, gruesome apocalypse. Forever Twilight will cast a shadow on your soul." - Stephen Baxter"[The novel] very intelligently and deftly invokes a host of cinematic spookshows from Invasion of the Body Snatchers onwards." - Asimov's"As intensely menacing and gruesome as any George Romero film, Darkness, Darkness also recalls the classic novels of American small-town terror and offers mystery as well. A virtuoso 'tour de force'." - Ramsey Campbell"A riveting read." - The Guardian (on Forever Twilight: Darkness, Darkness)
