Pillar of Darkness available for pre-order

Pillar of Darkness

One of Dave Duncan’s last works is a suspenseful science fiction entitled Pillar of Darkness, now published posthumously and releasing January 1, 2019.

It’s now available for pre-order in print and ebook through Five Rivers and your favourite online bookseller worldwide.

Two hundred miles wide and higher than the moon, Sungoback has stood over central Africa for thirty years, a pillar of light by night and of darkness by day. Science cannot explain it; it destroys technology. What secret lies at its centre: aliens, eternal life, distant past, or far future? Most who venture inside Sungoback are never seen again. Why would anybody dare?

They all have their reasons. Pillar of Darkness tells of a party of nine very dissimilar people, who venture into Sungoback together, bound by their motives, their sufferings, and—eventually—their fates.

Dave may no longer be with us, but his stories continue. We hope you’ll join with us in this celebration of a remarkable Canadian storyteller.
