It blows my mind that one of my favorite writers in the horror fiction scene over the last 10 or so years has endorsed my latest piece, Blood and Rain (Samhain Publishing, October 2015). I’ve admired the hell out of this guy’s talent and the way he has handled himself for a long time.

From when I first read Snow to when I finished Floating Staircase, Ronald Malfi’s style and storytelling ability has simultaneously influenced and intimidated me. He makes me want to write because his words are like magic. Yet, he also makes me say, “Shit, I can’t fucking do that.”

Well, Ronald Malfi is one of only a handful of people to have read my forthcoming novel, Blood and Rain. And this is what he had to say:

“With slashing claws and blood-soaked fur, Glenn Rolfe’s novel will have you howling in terror and delight. A welcome addition to the werewolf mythos and proof that we’re in the presence of a rising star in the genre. Highly recommended!”–Ronald Malfi, author of December Park

My jaw dropped.

It’s like Tim Armstrong (lead singer in Rancid) hearing one of my punk rock songs and saying, ‘that’s wicked.’


Soon, you’ll all have the chance to dig into my ‘wicked’ new werewolf novel. I’m excited for my baby beast to make its way out into the world.  You can pre-order the Kindle edition right now on, and soon at all of your other favorite eBook joints. The print edition hits the streets October 6th (and maybe on audio shortly thereafter). If you make it out to Horror Hound Weekend Indianapolis in September, I will have pre-release copies for sale!
