This happened a good deal with the Grays and, I think, with Hybrids. It happened ot a lesser extent with the first Alien Hunter, but with the new one, suddenly toward the end of the book something rather stunning emerged, and I was left thinking that there might be an extraordinary means of communication with another universe hidden beneath our feet.(less)

For the past few years, I've been writing fiction for two reasons: First, it's where I started and where my heart lives. Entering the world of the imagination is a magical, wonderful thing to do and I relish it. My second reason is that I sense that I have lots of buried memories from my very strange life, and I think that they reveal themselves in the fiction.

This was particularly true of the... Read more of this blog post »

“...endless day-to-day shallowness, a monotony that leaves a person wondering years later where all the time went and sorry that it's all gone”
Whitley Strieber

“Old enough to know better, but too young to care.”
Whitley Strieber

“In the eyes of the others we who met them saw ourselves. And there were demons there.”
Whitley Strieber, Majestic

Topics Mentioning This Author

“Never be so focused on what you're looking for that you overlook the thing you actually find.”
Ann Patchett, State of Wonder

“Where, as again Vaughan writes, the liberated soul ascends, looking at the sunset towards the west wind, and hearing secret harmonies.”
Anthony Powell, Temporary Kings

“The old world was destroyed because of its own greed and secretiveness. Those least evolved rose to the top, as happens here. Your leaders, as you call them, are all people with damaged senses of self-worth. The damaged goods run the civilization. That’s why it cannot last."
"Abraham Lincoln was damaged goods?"
"The need to lead is a symptom.”
Whitley Strieber, The Key: A True Encounter

Jeremy Vaeni Oh, that's right. "Evenings With Demons." Sorry I fudged the title. Still, it's the one book I long to read. I love your stories long and short.


Whitley There will be another book in the series this time next year.

Felix Thanks for the friend invite. "Alien Hunter" was one of the best thriller I've read in awhile.. Salivating for the next Flynn Carroll abduction of my time!

I have never written anything called 'Conversations with Demons," largely because I haven't had any such conversations. I published a book of short stories called 'Evenings with Demons' 20 years ago. It does not mean that I am in league with demons. It is simply a book of ordinary short stories. It's out of print. No publisher would dream of releasing my stories.


Jeremy Vaeni For the love of all things sacred in the world, please rerelease "Conversations With Demons" so that I may read it and (eventually) die happy. Barring that, please send me a copy. I promise to return it if it's your only one :)
