Having read other works by Mr. Steele, I held certain expectations of the novel "In Bleed Country". I was not let down in the slightest.

The book clearly consists of two separate novellas that have been meshed together to serve as the novel and for the most part it works splendidly.

The story surrounds a young man, Jeff, who finds himself drawn into a strange and dangerous world that serves as both the underlying fabric and parallel housing of the earth we know. Bleed Country is that part of exis

Recommends it for: Fans of the Heroes tv show, Clive Barker, and Stephen King's Dark Tower series
This was at some points pretty disturbing, but always interesting. I liked this story. It's not for everyone, though.

How do I even begin to describe In Bleed Country? It is a story so different from anything I have ever read that it’s almost impossible to even describe it. I had previously read the original release of this book but when the new edition came out with additional stories, I bought it again. Though I loved it the first time, I think I understand it so much better now and enjoyed it even more this time around.

The first important element of this story is the world itself. Steele has a gift for worl

I read "In Bleed Country" during my spring break as a "ME" present. I somehow knew I would want the time to just read it through without interruptions and I was so right. I have to say I had a terribly hard time putting it down until I finished it! Every page kept me intrigued and wanting more. I particularly enjoyed the full range of emotion and suspense mixed with the ever present ma cob story line. I know a lot of my friends would love this book but they're not getting my autographed copy! Th ...more

I'm not certain why I've not yet entered my review of this novel here on Goodreads. Laziness or simple forgetfulness. Neither is appropriate, appreciated nor excusable.

When I first read the original version of this novel, by the Clive Barker-esque Brian Fatah Steele, I fell in love with the strange and dangerous world he had created. It was brilliantly conceived, terrifying and exhilarating. It also lingered in my mind, seeping around the edges of darkness, threatening to spill into the light fo

I don't do much horror, and this book reminded me why. This bizarre, action-packed tale freaked me out and grossed me out, which is precisely what Steele is aiming for. He was pleased to learn to it gave me nightmares a few nights after finishing it. The White Man comes walking and bad things start happening. My favorite, however, is the floating baby in the abandoned farmhouse. *shiver* If horror is your thing, give this one a try.

This novel was waiting for years for me to write it - I just didn't know. Five different short stories I had previously written and released were combined, worlds united into one and characters finding themselves standing shoulder to shoulder against allied villains. Although written in two separate sessions, I'm quite happy with how this Modern Dark Fantasy novel came out.
