First, the flash. A glare of light, just before dawn, followed by utter darkness. A vast blanketing nothingness that covered the whole Earth.
Then, the disappearances. Friends and strangers alike, swallowed by the darkness… and then returned, altered, changed.
For the people of Jesman's Bend, it feels like the end of the world. But this is only the very start.

"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)
"Peter Crowther is a hidden gem... It’s science fiction meets horror with a slightly old-fashioned Rod Serling feel." - David Marshall, San Francisco Book Review
