Darkness Falling is a classic”
– SFX Magazine

Darkness Falling by Peter CrowtherIt was a typical all-American backwater – until the night the monsters came.

When four employees of KMRT Radio investigate an unearthly light that cuts off communication with the outside world, they discover that something has taken the place of their friends and fellow townfolk, and imbued them with malign intentions.

Little do they know, the phenomenon is not unique to the town of Jesman’s Bend…

Praise and Reviews:

“Crowther’s twisted rapture is a fast-paced, character-driven, funny, gruesome apocalypse.”
Stephen Baxter, author of Flood and Stone Spring

“I was reminded of the best of Stephen King. It’s the smartest and most compelling end-of-the-world alien-zombie story I have ever read.”
Adam Roberts, author of By Light Alone and Yellow Blue Tibia

“This book is told with a sure hand and careful attention to detail; it’s frightening where it should be, sensitive where it should be, and enthralling throughout.”
Mike Resnick, author of the Starship series, and the John Justin Mallory Mysteries

“Peter Crowther is crafting the first great post-apocalyptic saga of the new century, one that may dwarf even such a benchmark work as The Stand.”
Lucius Shepard, author of The Golden and Life During Wartime

“Anything that has Pete Crowther’s fingerprints on it is evidence of quality. Snap it up.”
Joe R. Lansdale, author of the Drive-In series and Bubba Ho-Tep

“As intensely menacing and gruesome as any George Romero film. A virtuoso ‘tour de force’ by Pete Crowther.”
Ramsey Campbell,  author of The Grin of the Dark and Thieving Fear

“His writing is master storytelling at its finest — gripping, chilling and beautifully told.”
Sarah Pinborough, author of the Dog-Faced Gods trilogy and The Language of Dying

“…a novel with a fascinating Apocalyptic scenario, full of interesting characters and offering a lot of spine tingling creepiness…”
The Guilded Earlobe

“LOVED it. I’ve never read anything by Peter Crowther before … but right from the very first page of the prologue I felt like I was meeting an old friend after a long absence. Why? How? Because it’s like this guy is channelling my coming of age book hero, Stephen ‘The Man’ King! It’s uncanny!”
