The first volume of Darkness Before Mourning published on July 30, 2015.

J. Greg Perkins is the author of the one of the largest bodies of fiction ever created by a single author—the 19-volume Darkness Before Mourning series. The Announcers (Chatwin 2015) is volume 1 of the series, followed by volume 2, Harvest of Ashes (Chatwin 2017). By the time the final volume is published, the work will rival the size of Marcel Proust’s In Search of Lost Time. Originally from Kokomo, Indiana, he now lives in Seattle. Greg Perkins' literary archive is housed at the Lilly Library, Indiana University.
