“Once a long sought-after collector’s item, Martindale’s Nightblood is back in print, ready to pit man against an army of blood craving vampires.”
Chris Stiles honed his fighting skills in the jungles of Vietnam. After he returns home from the war, his brother is slaughtered in Central Park. Now Chris is called back into action.
But this time enemy is different.
His journey lands him in Isherwood, Indiana, pop. 800 people … and one ancient vampire. As the townspeople turn one by one, Chris has to put his tactical skills to the test.
Will it be enough to stop an army of the undead?
Why we’re excited about this book:
T. Chris Martindale hit the horror world in the late 80’s, produced a string of novels, then disappeared as quick as he arrived. Author of Curse of the Werewolf, Where the Chill Waits, Demon Dance, and The Voice in the Basement, it is his second novel, Nightblood, that brought him the most critical acclaim, garnering a Stoker Award nomination before eventually going out of print. Once a long sought-after collector’s item, Martindale’s Nightblood is back in print, ready to pit man against an army of blood craving vampires. For this first-time reprint, Paperbacks from Hell got the original cover painting by Greg Winters. Gary Brandner (The Howling) said, “The scares jump off the page at you!” about the book. With a new introduction by Grady Hendrix, Nightblood by T. Chris Martindale is forthcoming from Valancourt Books on 19 November 2019 and is available for pre-order now.
