The May issue of Esquire features an excerpt — culled from the first 200 pages of Red Moon — called “The Infected.” You can read it online or listen to the audiobook version here.
Publishers Weekly has named Red Moon one of the most anticipated books of 2013. ” Exploring one of the oldest themes in weird fiction—the werewolf—Percy (The Wilding) delivers a stunning alternate history epic that transcends its genre trappings to read as a provocative reflection on the contemporary zeitgeist. At a point where many other writers would flinch, Percy follows through on the direst possibilities of his premise, building to a shocking denouement and even more shock climax in the final pages.”
In 2015, Graywolf Press will publish Ben’s book of craft essays, THRILL ME, which focuses on the art of suspense and momentum and the borderlands of literary and genre fiction.
Ben has sold his next novel, The Dead Lands, a post-apocalyptic reinvention of the Lewis and Clark passage, again to Helen Atsma at Grand Central/Hachette.
Ben and his sister Jennifer Percy will both have their work included the 2013 Pushcart Prize anthology.
Ben profiled John Irving in a recent issue of Time.
