Reviews for BLOOD AND RAIN

“With slashing claws and blood-soaked fur, Glenn Rolfe's novel will have you howling in terror and delight. A welcome addition to the werewolf mythos and proof that we're in the presence of a rising star in the genre. Highly recommended!"--Ronald Malfi, author of December Park and Little Girls

"A major new talent rises from the Maine woods...Rolfe is the real deal, and Blood and Rain is a classic monster novel, full of blood and teeth and the kind of razor sharp writing that makes the pages sing. Small town horror is back, with a vengeance!"--Nate Kenyon, award-winning author of Sparrow Rock, Diablo: Storm of Light and Day One

"Many authors nowadays get lauded for writing 'throwback' horror fiction, but none of them quite goes the distance like Rolfe does in Blood and Rain. Werewolves, silver samurai swords, and small New England towns: it all makes you wish this was twenty years ago so you can take the paperback off a supermarket spinner-rack and huff the yellowed pages." - Adam Cesare, author of Mercy House and Exponential

"Rolfe is the real deal, folks, and anything he writes is well worth checking out." - Gord Rollo, author The Jigsaw Man and The Crucifixion Experiments

“Wow! Easily one of the best werewolf books I've ever read."- Hunter Shea, author of The Montauk Monster

Reviews for LAND OF BONES

"Whatever flavor of horror you like, LAND OF BONES serves up a dish for you. Rolfe's range is wide and he cuts deep."
- Tom Deady, Bram Stoker Winning author of HAVEN and WEEKEND GETAWAY

"What I like about this collection is that it showcases a great writer AND the breadth of the genre-- all the different ways "horror" is explored today. Rolfe gets better with each book." - Becky Spratford, Owner and Editor of RA For All , contributing reviewer for Booklist

Reviews for THE HAUNTED HALLS

"The evil is dark, malevolent, and sexually charged! If you like your horror to have a bit of meat on the bone, you should consider adding this book to your personal TBR list." - Cemetery Dance

"The Haunted Halls is a compelling novel of evil. Scary and gripping to the last page. The 'Ice Queen' is as frightening a demon as any I have encountered!" - Catherine Cavendish, author of The Pendle Curse and Linden Manor

"A family of vampires terrorizes a seaside town in Rolfe’s lurid tale of adolescent romance and murder."

"It is a stimulating, gripping and chilling horror tale and I devoured it in three days."

'Glenn has easily become my favourite author and I hold no bars when I say he is the best dark fiction writer right now'

[...] if Lost Boys, Buffy the Vampire Slayer (the Kristy Swanson flick), and Stranger Things had a fangy baby and put on paper, it might be this book—and that’s some high praise.

"Throw in the coming-of-age angle, with all of the promise of a first true love, and Rolfe has delivered a horror novel with heart, soul, and bite."

"There’s no denying that Rolfe’s writing here is the best it’s ever been. I’d recommend this to anybody."

– Steel Rain Reviews

“This 80's throwback coming-of-age story will certainly satisfy your thirst for a grisly vampire tale.”

– The Book Dad

“Until Summer Comes Around is going to be the perfect summer read!”

– Kendall Reviews
