“While Blood and Rain is fast paced and full of werewolf action, the thing that makes the novel more than just a slaughter-fest is that Rolfe is able to craft characters that are both believable and whom the reader can relate with. It is easy to care for the plight of Fischer and his daughter as well as his blossoming love interest. Even more impressive is that the smaller characters have substance as well so that their loss (most of them are fodder for the beast) is felt by the reader…. Blood and Rain is definitely a contender to be the best horror novel of the year.”- The Examiner

“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 Little Girls and  December Park

 

 

 

“Brutal, tension-fuelled and captivating… Blood and Rain is the best werewolf novel I’ve read since Jeff Strand’s Wolf Hunt.” – Horror After Dark

“Rolfe is a classical kind of horror writer, and BLOOD AND RAIN, being a werewolf story, reminds me of a mix of early Stephen King and Bentley Little—with a touch of THE HOWLING… It’s Silver Bullet on speed!” – The Ravenous Reviewer

“Glenn Rolfe takes a swing at the werewolf genre and hits a home run.This fast-paced novel never pauses for a moment… no one is safe when the werewolf starts to hunt. ” – Russell James, author of Q Island and Dreamwalker

 

 

 

“If you are not already a fan of Rolfe then you clearly haven’t been reading his work. Blood and Rain is a monumental piece of horror fiction. It represents everything I love about werewolves, creature features, siege films, and everything else in between. It is still early in the year, but this is a clear cut candidate for my favorite book of 2015.” – Horror Underground

“(Blood and Rain is) one hundred miles an hour from start to finish and will leave you breathless at times….  Glenn Rolfe could be a force to be reckoned with.” – Confessions of a Reviewer

“Many authors nowadays get lauded for writing ‘throwback’ horror fiction, but none of them quite goes the distance like Rolfe does in Blood and Rain. Werewolves, silver samurai swords, and small New England towns: it all makes you wish this was twenty years ago so you can take the paperback off a supermarket spinner-rack and huff the yellowed pages.” – Adam Cesare, author of Mercy House and Exponential

He’s the hospital’s newest, and most notorious, patient—a paranoid schizophrenic who sees humanity’s dark side.

Luckily he’s in good hands. Dr. Eli Alpert has a talent for healing tortured souls. And his protégé is working on a cure for schizophrenia, a drug that returns patients to their former selves.

Monsters have been unleashed inside the Sugar Hill mental asylum. They don’t have fangs or claws. They look just like you or me.

“Keep an eye on Brian Kirk. His ambitious debut, We Are Monsters, is a high-voltage thrill, like watching Sam Fuller’s Shock Corridor and Joel Schumacher’sFlatliners on split screens. ” — Jonathan Moore, Bram Stoker Award nominated author of Redheads

“Brian Kirk’s debut We Are Monsters is a smart, elaborate novel that weaves together the best and worst of us. Complex, terrifying, and still humane, this book moved me to both horror and compassion, and that’s a difficult thing indeed. Easily the best book I’ve read this year.” – Mercedes M. Yardley, author of Pretty Little Dead Girls: A Novel of Murder and Whimsy.

Gang leader Jimmy Wade also survives the virus, but he’s acquired a hunger for human flesh. Believing consuming Aiden will make him all-powerful, he and his gang hunt the boy. Melanie and Aiden must evade both Wade’s tightening grip and the growing army of the infected in an impossible escape from what all call Q Island.

Surrounded by fears. And all of them real.

There isn’t much that doesn’t frighten ten-year-old Kelly Carter—the dark, the water, monsters, you name it—but she’s about to enter the summer of all fears. When Kelly and her family arrive at Kildare Lake, she knows it’s not just for vacation. They’ve come to say goodbye to her little brother, Cody, who is dying.

Kelly tries to be brave for Cody, but everything around her is plagued by darkness, and all of it is scary. Dangerous things lurk beneath calm water, and others skulk beneath her bed. Shadows swirl through the lake, and more dart in the upper corners of her room. Her parents tell her there’s nothing to be afraid of, but she doesn’t believe them. Her fears are real. Somehow, scared or not, she must find the courage to keep her brother safe.
