There is a ghost town survival in the mountains of New Mexico, and of all the novels, this one is about that town and its people when faced by the horror of an invasion by hideous aliens from outer space. Set in 1978, with an epilogue in 2018, a battle is joined against remorseless creatures lurking inside an abandoned mine and preying upon the few remnant residents who operate a gallery and a museum. Readers are reminded of similar monstrosities in H.P. Lovecraft’s stories; however, this mountainous region of New Mexico is rife with stories of threatening UFO’s, and it could have some basis in reality. The book is filled with 1978 photos of the remarkable ghost town and its mine, while the epilogue revisits the town, with color photographs celebrating the 2018 snapshot in time. In addition, there is a map of the town as it existed in 1978. A sumptuous Sun Cross Publications book with a distinct New Mexico flavor, and…something else.


A real ghost town in the southwestern New Mexico mountains provides the setting for a novel depicting the invasion of alien creatures that descended into a mine and who threaten the lives of the hardy residents in 1978. Richly illustrated with the author’s photos of the town from the time of the story, the verisimilitude creates a reality for the reader as the characters are forced to acknowledge the unthinkable and find the means to survive in the isolated town at 10,000 feet, where connections to outside help are miles away on a perilous mountain road built with convict labor in the 19th century and where the epilogue takes the reader to 2018 for a photographic tour of the town as it now exists.


The stark terror of encountering hideous alien creatures upends the lives of the characters in The Whispering Darkness, and the ensuing battle causes their lives to deteriorate in the same manner as the mouldering buildings that have survived for a century in 1978, while the weekend photo gallery owners are slowly drawn into the vortex of a horror that blasts the senses and threatens to cut off the road that leads to salvation as they find their lives inalterably changed.
