Publisher's Weekly says, "Strieber remains a superb prose stylist, with a coherent and persuasive vision of vampirism..." This is the book that Whitley talked about on Coast to Coast on October 10, that contains one of the great hidden meanings of the close encounter experience. Explore it's beautiful website, Lilithsdream.com where you can see some of the characters as brilliantly imagined by Dana Augustine, and listen to Whitley reading an excerpt. And check out Whitley's tour schedule!
Lilith's Dream is not strictly entertainment, according to Whitley. "I am trying to depict the dangerous dance between good and evil that is at the core of human experience, and to say some things about the visitors that have never been said before, that are, in a sense deep secrets. I tried to express some profound truths about how they might be a very, very dark force, but how we can use the pressure they put us under to evolve, and?above all?to find a new and desperately needed love for our own kind.
"And then there is the matter of the darkness of the situation. Many years ago, I said that I believed that the close encounter experience may be "what evolution looks like when it is applied to a conscious mind." It's not pretty, but in the end, there is a powerful, numinous and completely unexpected experience for all the characters concerned in the novel. If you want to know where I think that our ancient and terrible relationship with the visitors is heading, you will find it in these pages."
