It’s no secret that I’ve been a huge fan of Bentley Little’s work ever since I first read The Revelation as a teen, so you can imagine how thrilled I am to share his thoughts on Darkness Whispers, a brand new novella I’ve co-written with Richard Chizmar, which will be the very first Signed Limited Edition hardcover from Scarlet Galleon Publications:
“Filled with enough plot, characterization and metaphorical heft to stuff a full-length novel, Darkness Whispers brilliantly depicts the supernatural exploitation of a small town’s moral failings. Subtly shifting from Bradbury-esque whimsy to badass horror worthy of the King himself, the novella is a major achievement by Richard Chizmar and Brian James Freeman.”

I’m very pleased to announce Darkness Whispers, a brand new novella co-written with Richard Chizmar, which will be the very first Signed Limited Edition hardcover from Scarlet Galleon Publications!
About the Book: Darkness Whispers will introduce you to the town of Windbrook, a sleepy little community nestled deep in the secluded Skullkin Valley of western Pennsylvania.
All is well in Windbrook, just like usual, just like always. Nothing changes here, nothing is different.
Except… except today something is different.
An old man with piercing gray eyes will arrive in town this morning. This man isn’t human. Not even close. And he isn’t coming alone. Death travels with him.
Richard Chizmar, award-winning author of A Long December, and Brian James Freeman, acclaimed author of The Painted Darkness, have combined forces to create an old-fashioned tale of horror, full of good and evil, with a breathtaking ending that will leave you wondering when this peculiar old man might be coming for you…
