Editorial Reviews


"This bizarre, action-packed tale freaked me out and grossed me out, which is precisely what Steele is aiming for." - Court Ellyn, author of Mists Of Blackfen Bog

This book is a genre bending experience. It's got romance, adventure and yes, horror." - Saranna DeWylde, author of The Real Housewives Of Olympus

Bleed Country is that part of existence where the mystical and the horrific coexist in a tightrope dance of sight and touch, horror and beauty, love and madness." - C.L. Stegall, author of The Weight Of Night and CEO of DarkRedPress

"Disturbing but always interesting..." starred review by BittenByBooks on In Bleed Country

More About the Author

Brian Fatah Steele has been writing various types of dark fiction for over ten years, from horror to urban fantasy and science fiction. Growing up hooked on comic books and monster movies, his work gravitates towards anything imaginative and dynamic. Steele originally went to school for fine arts but finds himself far more fulfilled now by storytelling.

His work has appeared in such places as 4POCALYPSE, BLOOD TYPE, WHITE FACE DEATH, 4RCHETYPES, DEATH'S REALM, THE IDOLATERS OF CTHULHU, PAYING THE FERRYMAN, and the Bram Stoker Award-nominated DARK VISIONS, VOL.1. His own titles include the urban fantasy novel IN BLEED COUNTRY, the post-mythic novella collection FURTHER THAN FATE, and the dark sci-fi collection BRUTAL STARLIGHT.

Steele lives in Ohio with a few cats and survives on a diet of coffee and cigarettes. He spends his time still dabbling in visual art, vowing to fix up his house, acting as a part-time chaos entity, spending too many hours watching television, and probably working on his next writing project.

How do I even begin to describe In Bleed Country? It is a story so different from anything I have ever read that it's almost impossible to even describe it. I had previously read the original release of this book but when the new edition came out with additional stories, I bought it again. Though I loved it the first time, I think I understand it so much better now and enjoyed it even more this time around.

The first important element of this story is the world itself. Steele has a gift for world building and conceptually this universe is one of the most unique that I have ever experienced. Weaving the mundane and the esoteric, attempting to give form to the abstract, this is a world that is more felt than understood. Many of the concepts defy rational thought, as do most fantastic stories, but most of those stories are logical extensions of the world we know. The world of In Bleed Country is so different, so alien to normal human consciousness that it cannot be logically understood and must instead be felt and experienced on an emotional gut level. Sometimes I still cannot wrap my head around how these ideas even came to him. A world of dark beauty, full of the fantastic and outre, so consuming that the reader suffers reality shock when they look up from the book.

The second important element of this tale are the characters that populate it. Like many of Steele's works (such as Petty Like a God), his gift of characterization is unparalleled. His heroes are fantastically powerful and yet utterly human. The fantastic scenes are balanced against witty dialogue that feels like a conversation among friends. These are people you feel like you know or that you want to know. Their journey is one that many will see themselves in.

Death and change comes furiously fast to those in Bleed Country. A land that exist a bit apart from our world, Bleed Country, runs on magic and the belief and faith of mankind. It is the job of the agents of Bleed Country to keep the two worlds in balance. It is important that we mere mortals believe that there is another world beyond ours, but we cannot KNOW of it.

This is the world Jeff, a young man with more gambling debts then money, finds himself drawn into and to make matters worst he draws the Death card in a very serious and life altering dealing of the tarot. Jeff after this is an agent of Bleed Country and works for Death, but neither Jeff nor anyone else in Bleed Country knows exactly what that means and that's making everyone very nervous. Changes such as this could spell the end of Bleed Country.

If this wasn't bad enough for Jeff, there is a crazed group of psychic killers, all drawing from the Devil card, running around torturing and killing people that have just discovered they have a new foe in the form of a young woman who is equally gifted as they. Worst yet, it is Jeff's first official job as a Bleed Country agent to protect this young woman... Oh, and there is also a rogue necromancer who's willing to go to any extreme to find his little sister, who's also been taken into Bleed Country. Samuel, the necromancer, is that special sort of cruel and dangerous that comes from being fully devoted to an impossible mission.

This book was a fun read. It offers lots of gore, violence, and characters that are all quite colorful, expect for the White Man of course, but how can that not be true of a book that features a racist scarecrow?
