Synopsis: Dennis Fordham has it all: the wife, the kids, the established small business. And yet...he's slipping. Something's changing in his mindset. He's regretting all the chances that he never took. And he's getting a bad itch to visit illicit massage parlors. Even worse: he’s also starting to talk kind of funny. Only it's not a joke— his strange words terrify his dental hygienist, who tells his whole Northern California community that he harassed her. When Dennis tries to push back, he's met with intense resistance. Which is when his troubling thoughts turn into violent ones...
A story of red rage, red madness, and a bright red, all-American, hyper-masculine psycho, RED DENNIS gives us a man on the edge, then invites us to follow him down into the abyss.
About the Author: Eric Shapiro is a writer and filmmaker. He is the author of six critically acclaimed fiction books, among them the novella It's Only Temporary (2005), which appeared on Nightmare Magazine's list of the Top 100 Horror Books, and numerous short stories published in anthologies alongside work by H.P. Lovecraft, Ray Bradbury, Stephen King, Chuck Palahniuk, and many others. His nonfiction articles have been published on The Daily Dot, Ravishly, LGBT Talk, and The Good Men Project. His first feature film, Rule of 3 (2010), won awards at the Fantasia International Film Festival and Shriekfest, and had its U.S. premiere at Fantastic Fest. His second feature film, Living Things (2014), was endorsed by PETA (People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals) and distributed by Cinema Libre Studio. In 2015, he won the 19th Annual Fade In Award for Thriller Screenplays. He is a founding partner of Ghostwriters Central, a writing and editing firm which has received positive notices from The Wall Street Journal, Consumers Digest, and the TV program "Intelligence For Your Life." Eric has edited works published on The Huffington Post and Forbes, as well as two Bram Stoker Award-nominated novels. He lives in Northern California with his wife, Rhoda, and their two sons.
“Eric Shapiro is that rarest breed of artist, one capable of exceling at anything he lends his mind and astounding depth of talent to. If it’s got Eric’s name on it, you’re dealing with something special, from an absolute assassin at the very top of his game. Bank on it.”
--Greg F. Gifune author of A WINTER SLEEP
"Eric Shapiro is one of a small number of largely small-press authors whose work - based upon almost everything of his I've ever read - I would cross apocalyptic landscapes to get ahold of. He's quite simply a brilliant writer; one of a select few on my radar who manage to balance with seemingly no effort whatsoever the most wonderfully literary prose with genuinely entertaining narrative. His ability to get inside the head of his protagonists - way past the point that his protagonists themselves are capable of - is nothing short of unsettling, and underpins even his most surreal tales with a foundation of reality."
--Chuck McKenzie, HorrorScope
“Eric Shapiro has a wicked imagination -- has penned some refreshingly original fiction."
--Colleen Wanglund, The Horror Fiction Review
"His writing is every bit as good as current horror It Boy Joe Hill, if not better."
--Rod Lott, Bookgasm
"Shapiro's work will not fail to please."
"Eric Shapiro’s work encompasses the transcendent and the degraded; the horrific and the hilarious. Most writers would kill or die to just create one piece of greatness; Mr. Shapiro seems to find greatness as a matter of routine. Seriously, folks, he’s THAT GOOD. If this is your first encounter with his vision, I can only envy you; if you already know what he’s up to, then my commentary is superfluous. Either way, please stop reading this and just proceed to Mr. Shapiro’s writing. You can thank me later."
--Scott Bradley, co-editor of The Book of Lists: Horror
"To me, Shapiro is the next Philip K. Dick. He's got the same intelligent voice, vivid characterization, and the absolutely crucial awareness of all that is wrong with humankind."
--Kealan Patrick Burke, author of CURRENCY OF SOULS
"I first read Eric Shapiro in 2005, when his novella IT'S ONLY TEMPORARY made me think, This guy is gooooooooood. Since then, I've read everything he's put out and he hasn't let me down yet. Nobody does 'WTF?!' better, but Eric's work is also smart, richly observed, and oh-so-human. Where great writing is concerned, Eric Shapiro is The Real Deal."
—Bram Stoker Award-Winning Author Lisa Morton
