A 2018 LOCUS AWARD FINALIST FOR BEST HORROR NOVEL

In the aftermath of the last great battle of the American Civil War, a disillusioned Union medic stumbles across a strange figure picking amid the corpses, and his life is changed forever . . .

In the cathedral city of Strasbourg in the years before the French Revolution, a church restorer is commissioned to paint a series of portraits that chart the changing appearance of a beautiful woman over the course of her life, although the woman herself seems ageless . . .

In Prohibition-era New York, an idealistic young Marxist is catapulted into the realms of elite society, and forced to assume the identity of someone who never existed . . .

Red Snow is a novel of love and violence, ideas and dreams, and revolves around the mystery of a monster drawn from humanity's darkest myths which still somehow survives, and thrives, and kills, in this modern age.

Praise for Red Snow:

“… always manages to take us somewhere unexpected… by turns western adventure, Renaissance horror, political intrigue, dysfunctional family drama, and more.” —Locus

“By turns horrifying and hauntingly beautiful, this epic vampire story is the stuff of real nightmares.” —Tim Powers

‘A rich, beautifully written, deftly plotted vampire novel” —Goodreads

“Red Snow brings new depth and history to some age-old myths. It resonates with the struggle between science and the supernatural, and between good and bad. Fed through a prism which combines the romance of Anne Rice with the vivid realism of Cormac McCarthy, it is a novel of universal questions and the triumph of the human spirit wrapped inside a dark and gripping tale.” —Risingshadow.net
