“Almost impossible to put down” – Publishers Weekly
Astragoth is risen.
From the dark night of the centuries he has returned.
He will have his rightful bride or he will utterly destroy the Earth.
He is the HELL-BORN!
With its exploration of the “insect” inside us all, In Darkness Waiting proves more relevant today than ever. A parasitic part of humanity since primitive times, they have been responsible for the worst human atrocities in history. When a psychology experiment goes out of control in remote Jasper, Oregon, the town swarms with Gray Pilots, whose stings bring out the cold-blooded killer in everyone and initiate an orgy of sociopathic slaughter. First published in 1988, the novel has been updated with references to Beirut, Bosnia and Abu Ghraib prison. Shirley works a crafty variation on the smalltown horror novel, making it an effective vehicle for his dark sociological speculations, and shows that his story’s worst horror is its continuing relevance.
