“Brian Moreland writes a blend of survival horror and occult mystery that I find impossible to resist. His writing is clean, precise, and, best of all, compulsively readable. I know, when I've got one of his books in my hands, that I'm going to be lost to the world for hours on end. He's just that good.”
-- Joe McKinney, Bram Stoker winning author of Dead City and Flesh Eaters

“Dead of Winter is an exceptionally well crafted horror novel that tells a gripping story of dark religious doings, a horrific serial killer, and a sympathetic Inspector, in a dark and fascinating historical setting of 19th century Canada. The atmospherics are outstanding and the story offers plenty of surprises right up to its shocking and violent conclusion. Highly recommended.”
-- Douglas Preston, New YorkTimes bestselling co-author of The Monster of Florence and Cold Vengeance
"Dead of Winter is a thrilling, wholly-engrossing read that masterfully crosses multiple genres and leaves the reader breathless. Moreland weaves one hell of a history lesson, rich with brilliant characters and incredible plot twists. Highly recommended!"
-- Brian Keene, best-selling author of The Last Zombie and Ghoul
"Brian Moreland's Shadows in the Mistis a smashing debut of a major new talent. Combining Masonic history, mysticism, and Nordic rune-lore, Moreland's tale of a worldat war is equal parts horror story and spine-jangling thriller."
-- James Rollins, NewYorkTimes bestselling author of, Map of Bones and Black Order
“Brian Moreland’s fiction is taut and spellbinding, often blending varied themes to form a dark genre very much his own. From his WWII occult thriller Shadows in the Mist, to the haunting chiller The Devil’s Woods, Brian’s work is at once versatile, original, and deeply engaging.”
-- Greg F. Gifune, author of The Bleeding Season
“The Devil's Woods is an awesome horror novel, filled with nerve-wracking suspense and thrilling action!”
-- Jeff Strand, author of Wolf Hunt
"Brian Moreland writes horror on a level that soars above the usual fare, and THE VAGRANTS is no exception. Chocked full of scares and suspense, Moreland delivers a tale that will soon be a classic. This is the kind of story horror lovers need."
-- Kristopher Rufty, author of, Oak Hollow and The Lurkers
