"A government special agent known only as the Signalman gets off a train on a stunningly hot morning in Winslow, Arizona. Later that day he meets a woman in a diner to exchange information about an event that happened a week earlier for which neither has an explanation, but which haunts the Signalman. In a ranch house near the shore of the Salton Sea a cult leader gathers up the weak and susceptible--the Children of the Next Level--and offers them something to believe in and a chance for transcendence. The future is coming and they will help to usher it in. A day after the events at the ranch house which disturbed the Signalman so deeply that he and his government sought out help from 'other' sources, Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory abruptly loses contact with NASA's interplanetary probe New Horizons. Something out beyond the orbit of Pluto has made contact. And a woman floating outside of time looks to the future and the past for answers to what can save humanity."--Publishe.… (mere)

This was great. I could read books made from each of the stories/chapters/times of this collection and still want more.

It's hard to explain though. ( )

Reason read: it was a shared read, involves aliens, TIOLI challenge #7.
A Novella length book, setting Winslow, Arizona. Time 2015.
Structure: narrative hops from one time period and location to another, following three characters on very different (and yet directly related) journeys.
The novella is similar to the classic 1931 short story “The Whisperer In Darkness” of a terrifying alien conspiracy at work in rural Vermont, and the then-newly-discovered Pluto. So may appeal to lovers of Lovecraft.
Characters include a government operative (grumpy), Chloe (occult group), and Immacolata Sexton, outside time and space, also creepy.

There is so much that happens in a few pages and I found myself not really getting into the story. I didn't like it and the amount of profanity was excessive.

An intriguing and surreal dive into weird currents where the truth hides like a phantasmic shadow. ( )

Ce roman court de Caitlín R. Kiernan est une œuvre de fantastique, prolongement de la nouvelle Celui qui chuchotait dans les ténèbres écrite par H. P. Lovecraft et publiée en 1931. L'auteur se focalise beaucoup plus sur l'atmosphère qui se dégage de son écriture et beaucoup moins de l'intrigue, qui est des plus simples. Le résultat est réussi, mais comme souvent dans des exercices de style, l'intérêt général est assez limité pour le lecteur. Un auteur à suivre donc, pour voir ce qu'il peut donner en s'affranchissant du carcan d'un univers déjà créé et repris par de multiples auteurs. ( )

HERE'S THE SCENE: It's Thursday evening, and the Signalman sits smoking and nursing a flat Diet Dr Pepper, allowing himself to breathe a stingy sigh of relief as twilight finally, mercifully comes crashing down on the desert.
