It’s official. I’m writing a sequel to THE GUNS OF SANTA SANGRE for Samhain Publishing.

Thursday, June 19th, 2014

This time it’s bigger action, more werewolves, more guns, and much more Werewolf Western fun! More to come.

Here’s what people are saying about the book:

“THE GUNS OF SANTA SANGRE is an old-fashioned, well-made dime novel, doing Louis L’Amour, Elmore Leonard and Richard Matheson proud.”             – Bookgasm

“Bloody fights, desert vistas, a touch of romance, and plenty of werewolf action make THE GUNS OF SANTA SANGRE a fast-paced adventure. Screenwriter and author Red (DON’T STAND SO CLOSE) delivers a supernatural Western that should appeal to fans of the growing “weird West” genre. – Library Journal

“Imagine THE MAGIFICENT SEVEN mixed with DOG SOLDIERS and you’ve got Eric Red’s THE GUNS OF SANTA SANGRE.  It’s full of classic horror moments, non-stop action, and characters pushed to the edge. Three outlaws are hired by a young woman to protect her village from what she claims is a pack of werewolves. Seeing it as an easy job for three gunslingers looking to make some quick coin, they begin a journey that will forever change the way they see the world. Filled with action set pieces and terrifying monsters that are ready-made for big screen adaptation, GUNS is a fun and exciting read that no horror fan should miss.” – Famous Monsters of Filmland

“In our mythos of the Old West, there are bad guys and even badder guys,  But Eric Red’s are the biggest, baddest guys of all…” – Jack Ketchum.

“With THE GUNS OF SANTA SANGRE, Eric Red delivers a wild mash-up of action-thriller and bloody horror. This one really digs its claws into you from page one to last bite. Fast, furious, and wickedly fun. Highly recommended.” – Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of FIRE & ASH and EXTINCTION MACHINE

“It’s THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN meets DOG SOLDIERS! Taut, action packed and gory as hell! I couldn’t put it down!” – Arrow In The Head at JoBlo.com.

“For years Sam Tucker, John Fix, and Lars Bodie made their way across the American West by rustling cattle and outshooting their enemies. Now wanted men, they head through Mexico, one step ahead of the law, until a Mexican peasant begs them to save a beleaguered town from the Men Who Walk Like Wolves. VERDICT Bloody fights, desert vistas, a touch of romance, and plenty of werewolf action make this a fast-paced adventure. Screenwriter and author Red (DON’T STAND SO CLOSE) delivers a supernatural Western that should appeal to fans of the growing “weird West” genre.” –Library Journal

“Antarctic Press is proud to announce the publication of the new six-issue comic series WILD WORK, an epic vampire action horror western! And here’s a dazzling look at the 1st issue’s jaw-dropping cover!

In 1888, Professor Abraham Van Helsing pursues Count Dracula into the American West.  Wooden stakes and spurs, silver bullets and six-guns, side by side. Bullets fly, hell on earth around every hitching post and enough blood spilled to turn the western desert into a crimson sea. It’s going to be one “Hell-sing” of a ride!

The series is created and written by film director and screenwriter Eric Red, whose films include the legendary modern cult classics THE HITCHER, NEAR DARK, BODY PARTS and 100 FEET and who previously created and wrote the comic series CONTAINMENT for IDW Publishing. The cinematic artwork is by Ben Dunn. the founder of Antarctic Press and a man who has worked for almost every publisher on the planet as well as creating a plethora of titles and characters for his own company. The covers are by John Gallagher, the acclaimed entertainment illustrator working across film, television, video games and comics on such projects as ONCE UPON A TIME, FALLING SKIES and EUREKA and films such as THE GREY and APOLLO 18.”
