“Superbly written… a touching account of the carnage of war
that is only evident after the combatants return home
and the second battle begins –
one that wounds those closest to the soldier.”

– Dave Lannen, Colonel, USAF (Ret)
Served in Iraq & Afghanistan

Advance praise for

IN THE PLACE WHERE THERE IS NO DARKNESS:

“Douglas takes you down a believable rabbit hole of near and future
U.S.A. He steers you through subterranean rivers where strains of
George Orwell and Aldous Huxley float. Then he returns you to a now
where hope flickers.”
– Horace Coleman, poet and essayist

“IN THE PLACE WHERE THERE IS NO DARKNESS… reminded me of the writings of George Orwell and Aldous Huxley. Their prophesies are coming true and it’s not much of a leap in this current political climate to believe that [K. M. Douglas’] will too. This book presents a compelling story of a family dealing with combat related PTSD, brainwashing… and constant surveillance. I highly recommend this book to anyone.”

Here is what readers are saying on Amazon:

“No story has haunted my waking thoughts like this one in years!
A must-read for all science fiction fans.”

“K. M. Douglas has created a well written and chilling tale of a possible future.
He is a master with the pen.”

“An absolutely riveting story! I literally could not put this book down until I was finished.”

“Woven into a superbly crafted story is a timely message for a society heading into an Orwellian future.”

“If I was an English teacher, I would have my class read this book – it’s that good.
I look forward to more by this author.”

“This is just a phenomenal book and this is the kind of story that will always stay in the back of my mind as one of the best I’ve ever read. I encourage you to give it a try,
it’s well worth reading and passing on to friends!”

In the Place Where There is No Darkness was a superbly written story that spoke to so many emotions and beliefs and ideas. I think it will be several more reads and a long time before I unravel all of the thought processes Douglas awoke.”

“I can’t say that it was an enjoyable read, because it delved into the root of something uncomfortable looming inside me that must be explored. Still, it was well worth the read and I fully intend to recover and sink back into it again and again.”

“Douglas has a visceral writing ability that paints a picture,
stimulates the senses and pierces the heart.”
