Before

journey through darkness

embrace the horror, or let it consume you
Prepare yourself for a full-throttled adventure of epic proportions that will answer all of humanity’s enduring questions in the blockbuster adventure novel Before  from award-winning author Paul Kane.

Part horror story, part non-stop road adventure, and part historical drama, Before  is a journey of dark fantasy that’s as wide in scope as it is in what it reveals: the answers to mankind’s greatest questions. Who are you? Why are you here? And where will you go?

A mind-bending journey through the past, present and future, Before  opens in a psychiatric hospital in 1970s Germany where a patient nearing the end of his life speaks again for the first time in years. Fast-forward to England today where college professor Alex Webber is celebrating his birthday with family and friends, an occasion that unexpectedly sends him into a terrifying downward spiral where he is plagued by a series of disturbing, hallucinatory visions that threaten his own life and, ultimately, becomes a high-stakes gamble for the souls of all humanity.

“Paul Kane is a first-rate storyteller.”

— Clive Barker

“Kane’s foot never gets close to the brake.”

— Peter Straub

“[Kane’s] work is disturbing and very creepy.”

— Tim Lebbon

“Kane’s work pulses with poison mischief.”

— Richard Christian Matheson
