“For behold, a darkness shall cover the earth.”
—Book of Isaiah, 60:2
I’m not sure whether this should be shelved as post-apocalyptic horror, apocalyptic horror… or just plain horror. It certainly does seem to share traits with a book like, say, Metro 2033 if only for atmosphere. It works best if you really attempt to immerse yourself in the experience. If you really, really try and imagine what it’s like…
She’s wrong. We’re not dead. I know this because dead people don’t die.
It’s an effective book. More so because the author does not attempt to draw it out any longer than necessary. Darkness On the Edge of Town is actually a pretty brisk novel, as far as this kind of thing is concerned. There’s an immediacy to the proceedings that goes a long way in keeping the reader’s attention. It’s a book about physical darkness, true enough, but it’s also a book about the darkness of the human soul.
Outside in the night, someone else laughed—high-pitched, warbling, and maniacal.
The novel goes from modestly sinister to ultra unnerving in short order. Lovecraft fans should especially enjoy it. Easily recommended, if only because it reads so quickly (if you don’t like it you won’t have wasted weeks of your life).
Then the screams began.
