Publishers Weekly gives a good review to my new novel, THE WOLVES OF EL DIABLO.

Saturday, July 8th, 2017

“In this blood-soaked weird west story (following The Guns of Santa Sangre), bad guys come with glowing red eyes instead of black hats, but they still go down in a hail of (silver) bullets. Red mixes up vengeful werewolves, roguish American outlaws, and Mexican peasant Pilar, whose love for gunman Tucker leads them to embark on a train robbery. Tucker and his buddies Fix and Bodie haven’t been paid for a previous werewolf encounter, so they plan to heist the silver shipment from the Salazar mine. Azul, sister to slain werewolf leader Mosca, wants them dead, and stolid Colonel Higuerra and his 60 federales are not letting the silver go without a fight. Red, a screenwriter as well as a novelist, places a premium on action (“Then the first of the three werewolves struck!”) over character or description. Readers will enjoy discovering the connection between Azul’s abandoned twin pups and the mysterious, hypermasculine Salazar brothers and appreciate the resolution of Tucker and Pilar’s story.”

“Couldn’t put it down. The action is nonstop relentless…I can’t wait for the movie!”

-Jack Ketchum (THE GIRL NEXT DOOR, OFF SEASON, THE WOMAN)

From the publisher’s description: “In The Guns of Santa Sangre, three 1800s gunfighters battled a ferocious pack of werewolves in Old Mexico. In the sequel, The Wolves of El Diablo, the three outlaws rob a Federale steam train in the badlands of El Diablo transporting a fortune in silver bars. But when a savage werewoman, hungry for revenge on the men who killed her brother, leads her bloodthirsty gang of wolfmen in an attack on the train, the outlaws find themselves trapped on a highballing railroad in the middle of the desert fighting fifty werewolves. This time it’s bigger action, more lycanthropes, more silver bullets, and much more Werewolf Western thrills!

Posted on May 8, 2017 by Debi Moore

Los Angeles-based novelist, screenwriter, and film director Eric Red’s latest book, The Wolves of El Diablo, is Volume 2 of his The Men Who Walk Like Wolves series; and it’s heading our way this summer courtesy of Short, Scary Tales Publications. Here’s what you can look forward to:

From the Press Release:

THE GUNS OF SANTA SANGRE is available now, and THE WOLVES OF EL DIABLO is available for pre-order in advance of its August release date.

Fry says: “I’m very happy to be publishing Eric Red’s dark fantasy series, as I’m a huge fan of werewolf novels and weird western tales. I’m really pleased to be publishing two brand new novels in the series and re-releasing the very first book that started it all (THE GUNS OF SANTA SANGRE) in hardcover for the very first time. This series will appeal to a multitude of fans and is a lot of fun!”

THE WOLVES OF EL DIABLO Synopsis:
In THE GUNS OF SANTA SANGRE, three 1800s gunfighters battled a ferocious pack of werewolves in Old Mexico. In the sequel, THE WOLVES OF EL DIABLO, the three outlaws rob a Federale steam train in the badlands of El Diablo transporting a fortune in silver bars. But when a savage werewoman, hungry for revenge on the men who killed her brother, leads her bloodthirsty gang of wolfmen in an attack on the train, the outlaws find themselves trapped on a highballing railroad in the middle of the desert fighting fifty werewolves.

This time it’s bigger action, more lycanthropes, more silver bullets, and much more werewolf western thrills!”

Six-guns and silver bullets! Cowboys versus werewolves! Check out the new book trailer for my novel THE GUNS OF SANTA SANGRE. First time in Hardcover!

Friday, March 31st, 2017

Watch the trailer at: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ni9URx9hVFg

The book is now available in hardcover, paperback and eBook on Amazon or from SST Publications at: https://www.sstpublications.co.uk/The-Guns-of-Santa-Sangre.php

From the publisher’s book description:  “Six-guns vs. werewolves in the Old West!  They’re hired guns. The best at what they do. They’ve left bodies in their wake across the West. But this job is different. It’ll take all their skill and courage. And very special bullets. Because their targets this time won’t be shooting back. They’ll fight back with ripping claws, tearing fangs and animal cunning. They’re werewolves. A pack of bloodthirsty wolfmen have taken over a small Mexican village, and the gunmen are the villagers’ last hope. The light of the full moon will reveal the deadliest showdown the West has ever seen—three men with six-shooters facing off against snarling, inhuman monsters.”

My novel THE GUNS OF SANTA SANGRE now available in hardcover, paperback and eBook from SST Publications.

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

“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.

“It’s a fun, bloodsoaked read…If werewolves and westerns are your bag, THE GUNS OF SANTA SANGRE will be your huckleberry.” -Fangoria.

“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.

Now available for preorder in hardcover and paperback from SST Publications: https://www.sstpublications.co.uk/The-Guns-of-Santa-Sangre.php

Arrow In The Head at JoBlo.com on my new book series, THE MEN WHO WALK LIKE WOLVES.

Wednesday, February 15th, 2017

“Eric Red has a lot of great film credits to his name (THE HITCHERNEAR DARKBLUE STEELBODY PARTSBAD MOON100 FEET, the list goes on), and he is also an author, having written about such nightmarish topics as a serial killer truck driver (in WHITE KNUCKLE) and an aquatic alien terrorizing a submarine (IT WAITS BELOW). Red is also responsible for the extremely cool “The Men Who Walk Like Wolves” dark fantasy series, which is about werewolves rampaging through the Old West.

Short, Scary Tales Publications will soon be publishing a signed and lined trade hardcover edition and a trade paperback edition of the first two books in the Wolves series, and these can now be pre-ordered directly from the publisher.

The first book in the series is titled THE GUNS OF SANTA SANGRE, and these new editions of it will be published in March. The synopsis:

“They’re hired guns. The best at what they do. They’ve left bodies in their wake across the West. But this job is different. It’ll take all their skill and courage. And very special bullets. Because their targets this time won’t be shooting back. They’ll fight back with ripping claws, tearing fangs and animal cunning. They’re werewolves. A pack of bloodthirsty wolfmen have taken over a small Mexican village, and the gunmen are the villagers’ last hope. The light of the full moon will reveal the deadliest showdown the West has ever seen—three men with six-shooters facing off against snarling, inhuman monsters.”

The second book in the series, THE WOLVES OF EL DIABLO, will be published just five months later, in August.

“In THE GUNS OF SANTA SANGRE, three 1800s gunfighters battled a ferocious pack of werewolves in Old Mexico. In the sequel, THE WOLVES OF EL DIABLO, the three outlaws rob a Federale steam train in the badlands of El Diablo transporting a fortune in silver bars. But when a savage werewoman, hungry for revenge on the men who killed her brother, leads her bloodthirsty gang of wolfmen in an attack on the train, the outlaws find themselves trapped on a highballing railroad in the middle of the desert fighting fifty werewolves.

This time it’s bigger action, more lycanthropes, more silver bullets, and much more Werewolf Western thrills!”

Only the first 150 copies of the trade hardcover editions will be signed and lined by Red, so if you want those copies you should head over to SST Publications and get your pre-order in now.
