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
