Introduction to The Nights Too Dark (Volume 1 of The 12 Nights of Jeremy Sunson)


The end of the world is here.

The Mayans predicted Armageddon’s arrival long ago. Experts deciphered the secret writings and pronounced the dreadful date to be 12th December 2012. Twelfth of the twelfth of the twelfth.

December 2012 came and went. The earth did not expire in a fury of flame and pestilence; Armageddon slept for another day. The superstitious breathed a collective sigh of relief while the sceptical snorted with derision: yet another prophecy exposed as no more than chilling words for the gullible to believe.

But the Mayans were right.

The expert translation in error, Armageddon now swoops overhead.

Unknown to the world, a second prophecy exists. Secret even amongst the Mayans, it describes events that precede the coming of Armageddon, signs that the end of the world is nigh. And hints that the world’s end can only be forestalled by a Jere of power, a son of stars, one who will perform acts of bravery over twelve days. If the Jere succeeds, Armageddon will remain at slumber. If not…

Jere has several translations. One is hero. Others are not so flattering.

Armageddon is at hand. Welcome to the twelve nights of Jeremy Sunson.


Hidden inside the most unlikely person can be the most extraordinary hero…

Jeremy Sunson is surrounded by crazy. Mrs. Abercrombie, upstairs, is widowed because her husband glued feathers to his arms, jumped off the building and tried to fly. His neighbour, Strykland, has gone mad since his wife died in a freak car accident—his only thread to reality the doomsday machine he’s building and his daughter… and, of course, spacemen invade Jeremy’s living room.

Every night, in glorious Technicolor, there’s a battle royal between two high tech assassins who continually blast Jeremy’s apartment to shreds. Each man has one mission: Red wants to kill Jeremy, Bronzewants to save him!

Though his therapist insists he’s just having bad dreams—Jeremy knows better. It’s time to fight. He’s sick and tired of being sick, scared and tired! Armed with rare confidence and a baseball bat, this night, Jeremy fights like the crazy man he isn’t!

But how can he ever imagine when he’s won the battle, the war is only just beginning… over and over and over again?

The 12 Nights of Jeremy Sunson—ride a wave of laughter, fun and sci-fi fantasy all the way to Armageddon!
