"C.S. Humble digs deep into West Texas dirt to uncover cosmic terrors, secret occult orders, and broken people trying to put themselves back together again.” - Josh Rountree, author of The Legend of Charlie Fish

About the Book:

It is 1871. The landscape of the American West keeps getting colder and weirder in this highly anticipated sequel to the award-winning novel The Massacre At Yellow Hill.

Three years after the supernatural calamity that befell Yellow Hill, the Miller family finds themselves living in Abilene,Texas. There, the new life they hoped to find has been fraught with change and hardship. As a family they struggle to endure the challenges of time, circumstance, and the pestilential cold smothering the Texas landscape.

In those years Carson Ptolemy's life has changed too. No longer under the tutelage and provision of his father Gilbert Ptolemy, Carson directs the whole sum of his anger and young courage toward destroying the Society of Prometheus. But the occult society is old and powerful and vicious, and every day that passes brings them closer to ushering into the world a pantheon of nightmare gods known as - The Nine.

The fated threads of the Ptolemy and Miller family intertwine again as they face enemies new and old, casting all their strength against beings of tremendous and malevolent power in this action-packed horror adventure set on the American frontier. A Red Winter in the West is the second book in C.S. Humble's That Light Sublime Trilogy.

"Seth Humble does it right!" - James A. Moore, author of Boomtown and Where The Sun Goes To Die

"A RED WINTER IN THE WEST is a thick wedge of weird western in its purest form. An amazing and smart dust up of richly rendered classic monsters and grand characters. Wild Wild West by way of Hammer Horror in a dusty saddlebag. I LOVED it." -John Boden, , Jedi Summer and Walk the Darkness Down

What Humble has created in That Light Sublime Trilogy is something familiar yet unique. This is more than just another Western Horror series, much more. The depth here is breathtaking. In Book Two, A Red Winter in the West, the death and destruction continues, with powerfully horrific scenes that will leave you reeling, but the true horror here lies in the destruction of your heart. Be prepared!" - Catherine McCarthy, author of A Moonlit Path of Madness and Mosaic.

"Based on the first two books, That Light Sublime Trilogy could well become a classic of the genre. - Thomas Joyce, This Is Horror

"The weird western is experiencing something of a Renaissance right now, and Seth Humble has staked out a claim as one of the best working practitioners of the form.

A Red Winter in the West stands as yet more proof that Humble is producing modern classics in this often-underrepresented subgenre." - Orrin Grey, author of How to See Ghosts & Other Figments

"Cosmic horror, monster hunters, secret societies and more in a brilliantly realised frontier Western. Brutal and blood-soaked, A Red Winter in the West promises a lot and then over-delivers. C S Humble is a force." - Alan Baxter, author of Sallow Bend
