IT WAITS BELOW is one of Horror Novel Reviews Top 13 Samhain Horror Novels!

“A great exploration of the terrors that lurk deep beneath the surface, It Waits Below is actually a diverse story. There’s a little bit of ramance, some claustrophobia, underwater terror and a terrorist attack. Just a wild, wild ride.” –Matt Molgaard.

“Verdict: Aquatic shockers seem few and far between, but in 2014 Eric Red gifted us a beauty with It Waits Below. This one has a little bit of everything, but the claustrophobic nature of the tail, and the balls-to-the-wall conclusion help push it into near uncharted territory. Red is a beast!” –Matt Molgaard.

A rave review for IT WAITS BELOW from Horror Novel Reviews!

Friday, October 31st, 2014

“It’s all in how you tell the tale, and Red tells the tale like a seasoned skipper surrounding a bonfire and his mates on a rarely visited island off the coast of No Man’s Land. The action is steady, the mystery is alive and the novel’s conclusion will leave your head spinning 360 degrees. There isn’t a base that goes uncovered in Red’s latest, and if terror on water tales float your boat, this is an absolute must-read.”

“IT WAITS BELOW is a page-turner, an action-packed, underwater thriller that packs a powerful punch, liable to keep you up all night, feverishly turning pages.” – Lansing State Journal.

My new novel, IT WAITS BELOW, is the Editor’s Pick in the Nov/Dec issue of Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine!

Friday, October 10th, 2014

“Eric Red’s latest novel from Samhain Publishing is a perfect follow-up to his werewolves vs. gunslingers tome, THE GUNS OF SANTA SANGRE. In IT WAITS BELOW, Red mixes a little Lovecraftian mythos with classic, big screen Sci-Fi as an ancient beast, buried deep under the ocean, has awakened after a long slumber. The book reads like a Hollywood blockbuster with all the fixings as a deep sea team battles both the alien menace and pirates in an attempt to save mankind!”
