Cover art by John Gallagher

"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."—Publishers Weekly

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!

"Couldn't put it down. The action is nonstop relentless . . . I can't wait for the movie!"
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

"THE GUNS OF SANTA SANGRE is an old-fashioned, well-made dime novel, doing Louis L'Amour, Elmore Leonard and Richard Matheson proud."

"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 THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN meets DOG SOLDIERS! Taut, action packed and gory as hell! I couldn't put it down!"
Arrow In The Head at

"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."
