New book trailer for my zombies-in-space graphic novel, CONTAINMENT, available for the first time in hardcover and digital editions from SST Publications!

The  classic zombies-in-space graphic novel CONTAINMENT is coming back! And for the first time ever in hardcover and digital formats from SST Publications.  It was originally published by IDW Publishing back in 2005 and now long out-of-print.
The story takes place on a manned NASA space ship millions of miles from Earth, when a terrifying malfunction occurs in the cryogenic hypersleep pods containing the hibernating astronauts, turning most of the crew into the violently brain-dead. A handful of outnumbered astronauts awaken intact from their artificial slumber to find themselves pitted against murderous zombies running amok on the ship. The incredible artwork is by Nick Stakal and the introduction is by the legendary Wes Craven.
In his intro, Wes Craven calls CONTAINMENT, “Blood, mayhem, sex, cat-and-mouse terror, and some of the best visual storytelling in years. Eric Red takes no prisoners. Read it with the lights on. Read it with a friend so you are not alone afterwards. Won’t matter. You still won’t be able to sleep afterwards. What better way to spend your remaining moments?”
CONTAINMENT is available from at or directly from the publisher at

Samhain has added a Product Warning on the publisher’s website page for my new novel, IT WAITS BELOW.

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.”

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!”
