A tale inspired by H.P. Lovecraft’s “The Whisperer in Darkness”…

Hurricane Irene tore through the dark, wood-choked Vermont hills. In its passing, the rivers bled thick with fallen trees, wildlife carcasses, and, if you looked closely, stranger things. Sarah Sorrell made the mistake of looking very closely indeed. Even so, it all might still have been all right—if she hadn’t felt the need to dig further.

One afternoon in late fall, she finds a girl out in the driving rain, running from brutality. The wise choice is to leave the girl to chance. But Sarah knows the secrets that the forests hide, and why so many hitch-hikers vanish around here. She decides to give the girl a lift. As the two of them drive off into the storm, they have no idea of the journey they’re starting out on…

A chilling novel of the deep Vermont night, Whispers draws on the rich traditions of H.P. Lovecraft to weave the darkest of spells.

Cover by Raven Daegmorgan, graphic design and formatting by Kenneth W. Cain.
