Book Description

A collection of eight horror stories created by New York Times best-selling novelist Scott Sigler, author of INFECTED, CONTAGIOUS and ANCESTOR.

This eBook-only title features seven tales from Scott's six years of free audiobook podcasts, plus the brand-new novella "Hunter Hunterson & Sons.”

Scott still gives away his audio stories -- for free -- every week at

Stories in BLOOD IS RED:

Number One with a Bullet
In the high-stakes world of the National Football League, a wasted draft choice can cost careers and damage a franchise for years to come. When they investigate sure-fire number-one pick Eugene Patterson, however, they find far more than they want to know. 

Red Man
To be marked as a sex offender, a pedophile, a child rapist, is to carry stigma that all but banishes you from society. And if that mark is literal -- a permanent, inoperable face tattoo -- anonymity vanishes, and all who see you know of your crime. For a man who is wrongly convicted of horrible deeds, this mark becomes his life.

In the time before man, one social animal ruled the Americas. The wolf. Wolf packs roamed the continent, hunting and killing and breeding. But before any wolf ever saw the death that would walk on two legs, there came another danger …

The Great Snipe Hunt
Nature abhors a vacuum. One such vacuum exists in the “urban ecologies” of our cities. From bacteria to insects, from rodents to hawks, from feral cats to the mass numbers of pigeons, plants and animals weave together a web of life that goes mostly unnoticed by humans. What is missing from this mosaic? Four college students set out to find this mythical creature, the “Snipe,” and learn that a vacuum isn’t the only thing nature abhors.

Iowa Typhoon
Come on, come visit Fenders Pointe, IA. We’d love to have you stop by, see the trees, smell the flowers, and relax with our Midwestern hospitality. Only, you should try to schedule around the rainy season. If you’re here when the typhoons hit, we’ll be happy to welcome you as a permanent resident.

Sacred Cow
There is a fine line between absent-minded genius and idiot savant. Gordo Gordon keeps a foot planted firmly on either side. Father Al knows this better than anyone. Father Al watches over Gordo and tolerates the young man’s endless -- and useless -- inventions. When Gordo creates a theory to track “prayer energy,” however, Father Al will find a religious secret that puts his faith to the test.

Hunter Hunterson & Sons
Welcome to the family business. Hunter Hunterson and his kin live in Slayerville, KY, making their living chasing crack-smoking ogres, peeping-tom phantoms, bail-jumping zombie pimps and the occasional rabid unicorn. When a methed-out vampire (and family friend) goes on a road-trip rampage, Hunter and his kin pack up the truck and follow the trail of corpses all the way to San Francisco.

This reality-TV style story feels like a combination of “Dog the Bounty Hunter” meets “Ghostbusters” meets “The Beverly Hillbillies.” Hunter’s “war journal” is a mix of tawdry laughs and gut-churning horror.

Mt. Fitzroy (first chapter)
In 2005, Sigler released EARTHCORE as the world’s first podcast-only novel. His fans have been waiting since then for MT. FITZROY, the second book in the trilogy. BLOOD IS RED features the first chapter of this oft-promised and long-delayed sequel. Join Patrick O’Doyle and Bertha Lybrand as they head back down below to deliver a heapin’ helpin’ of revenge.

Ive been a fan since I discovered The Nocturnals, a podiobook on iTunes. Sigler is one-of-a-kind! This recent release is a quick read. And the added extras after each of the short stories is a PLUS. Check it out, then check out everything else. You'll be hooked, I swear!

Sigler scares the pants off of me and makes me laugh at the same time yet again. The new story is brilliant, and the old ones sparkle just as nicely in e-print as they did in audio. You're getting these excellent stories at a hell of a good price, so just go ahead and buy it!

Can't wait for the Nook version, since I don't actually have a Kindle. (Yay for free apps!)

4.0 out of 5 stars Sigler marches on... May 8, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
You have to admire the creativity, and the way he can crank out quality stories. I think everyone should buy this Kindle edition of several of Sigler's short stories. Then you should get the free podcasts and listen to them. His stories span the galaxy from mid-20th-century post-WWII gritty crime dramas, to a football drama set 700+ years in the future, again with crime undertones. Oh, don't forget what he did to Detroit. :-) Somewhat disturbing, always entertaining. Definitely check out his weekly podcast feed. It's a great way to while away your commute.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sigler is a Master of Baiting his Audience May 8, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
He lures you in and as soon as you're comfy he hooks you, pulls you out of the water and fillets you before serving you up on a pefect little plate with a nice glass of Pinot Noir.

This is just another can't put it down book from the guy that's given me more sleepless nights than Clive Barker.

This e-book short story collection is filled with some of Scott Sigler's best short stories in my opinion. Red Man and The Great Snipe Hunt are two of my favorites. I've just finished Hunter Hunterson & Sons and already can't wait for more! For $.99, you just GOTTA have this e-book!!

I should know better than to start reading Sigler's stories this later at night (12:30ish am-ish my time.) They grab you at the outset and you just have to keep reading! A damned good read, but not for the faint hearted.

More About the Author

New York Times best-selling novelist Scott Sigler is author of the INFECTED trilogy (INFECTED, CONTAGIOUS and PANDEMIC), ANCESTOR and NOCTURNAL, hardcover hardcover thrillers from Crown Publishing; and the co-founder of Empty Set Entertainment, which publishes his Galactic Football League series (THE ROOKIE, THE STARTER, THE ALL-PRO and THE MVP).

Before he was published, Scott built a large online following by giving away his self-recorded audiobooks as free, serialized podcasts. His loyal fans, who named themselves "Junkies," have downloaded over eight million individual episodes of his stories and interact daily with Scott and each other in the social media space.

Scott reinvented book publishing when he released EARTHCORE as the world's first "podcast-only" novel. Released in twenty weekly episodes, EARTHCORE harkened back to the days of serialized radio fiction. His innovative use of technology puts him at the forefront of modern-day publishing and has garnered brand-name exposure among hundreds of thousands of fiction fans and technology buffs.

He's been covered in Time Magazine, the Washington Post, the New York Times, the San Francisco Chronicle, Entertainment Weekly, Publisher's Weekly, The Huffington Post, Business Week and Fangoria. He still records his own audiobooks and gives away every story - for free - to his Junkies at

A Michigan native, Scott lives in San Francisco but still roots for his beloved Detroit Lions.
