High Concept Post-Apocalyptic Novel: A Blinding White Flash, then Darkness and MonstersS

Peter Crowther's PS Publishing has put out some of the UK's most cutting-edge books of late, and now he's publishing his own trilogy with Angry Robot Books. In Darkness Falling, a blinding light covers the Earth... then the nightmare begins.

Here's how Angry Robot describes the trilogy in a press release:

The Forever Twilight trilogy sees a blinding light engulf the planet. As the light fades to utter darkness, only a handful of survivors remain. That is, until the hordes of vanished humanity begin to return – each one of them changed somehow.

And Angry Robot Publishing Director Marc Gascoigne is quoted as saying:

Reading Darkness Falling gave me the same thrills I've got from recent Stephen King novels and Justin Cronin's The Passage, and that was it – I decided we just had to have this dystopian masterpiece for Angry Robot

The first book comes out in October, with the other two arriving in 2012 and spring 2013.
