“The history of the Old West written in blood and laced with dark humor, all set against a backdrop of ancient evil and a struggle for survival….You’re in for the ride of your life.”
—James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of The Devil Colony

Already a New York Times bestselling author for his satiric, gore-soaked “songbooks” (It’s Beginning to Look a Lot like Zombies; Every Zombie Eats Somebody Sometime), author Michael P. Spradlin now dons a different hat and gallops hell for leather into a darker, wilder West. Blood Riders is the story of Civil War veteran Jonas R. Hollister, who’s recruited by the U.S. government to hunt down and destroy an ancient tribe of vampires that is terrorizing the frontier territories. An ingenious mash-up of western and dark fantasy—with an intriguing touch of American steampunk weaponry thrown in for good measure—Spradlin’s Blood Riders has Hollister joining up with real-life historical figures Samuel Colt and Alan Pinkerton and one of horror literature’s most famous monster hunters (Abraham Van Helsing from Bram Stoker’s Dracula) to rid the West of the undead scourge once and for all.

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 06, 2012 – Spradlin (Jack and Jill Went Up to Kill: A Book of Zombie Nursery Rhymes) makes the Wild West of 1881 truly rambunctious. Det. Allan Pinkerton dispatches disgraced Army captain Jonas Hollister on a covert assignment to destroy renegade quasi-vampires called Archaics that destroyed Hollister s unit five years before and are now targeting small towns. Dissension within Archaic ranks pits Shaniah, who s concerned for her people s survival, against brutal Malachi, who is breaking Archaic laws by attacking humans. Hollister s intrepid and colorful team grows to include Shaniah, Chee (who boasts of Cajun, Chinese, Creek, and Negro ancestors), engineer Monkey Pete, and valiant town whore Sally. Abraham Van Helsing, in a cameo appearance, supplies comic relief and James Bond ish special protections for Pinkerton s steam train. Romance alternates with mounting peril as a sleazy senator s evil, cologne-drenched henchman pursues Hollister, and exciting encounters with Archaics lead to spectacular firefights. The final showdown convincingly resolves all the plot threads and provides fans of the vampire western genre a delightful read.
