Hierzulande dürfen wir uns gerade über Michael Dissieuxs AM ENDE DER WELT freuen, dem Finale seiner großartigen GRAUES LAND-Trilogie, die von zahlreichen Horror-Fans völlig zu recht in den höchsten Tönen gelobt wird.
Da ist es nicht weiter verwunderlich, das Grauen auch über den großen Teich schippern zu lassen. Mit A WORLD OF DARKNESS ist just der erste Teil von Michaels Trilogie als eBook auf englisch erschienen.
Dafür meinen gelupften Hut und die besten Wünsche, lieber Michael :D!
„Harvey and Sarah are living a happy and quiet live in the hillside. When Sarah gets ill old Harv is looking affectionately after his wife.
But some day the world outside is somewhat different. It begins with the television transmitters failing to broadcast programs, then the electrical power supply drops out and the phone falls silent, too. A grey haze covers the land. A deceiving silence lays over the fields and the house. At night Harvey believes to hear creatures creeping around the house. And a short encounter with one of these creatures in the garden brings him the terrible certainty that he hadn’t been just imagining.
Harvey decides to learn what the hell had happened to the world. So he climbs into his rusty van and drives over to his old friend Murphy, who a few miles down the road runs a small grocer’s shop. But this one already seems to have gone mad…
It’s so dark and melancholic and yet a real page-turner. Wow! The subliminal, ongoing threat that from the very first page runs through the book is characterized so perfectly. I just want to say “Thanks” for this great reading experience and give it a grade A (and I really give this one only very, very, very, very and very seldom.) [Royston Vasey] “
