Award -winning author Benjamin Percy presents an explosive and deeply layered literary thriller set in the American West.


“If George Orwell had imagined a future where the werewolf population had grown to the degree that they were colonized and drugged, this terrifying novel might be it.” –John Irving

“Extraordinary. . . . An ambitious, epic novel. . . . Holds a mirror up to contemporary America to reflect its fears and biases.” – Publishers Weekly

“The prose in this page-turner is purposefully cinematic. . . . Reading Red Moon involves a personal connection with a diverse set of characters, some of whom we may recognize. Percy seems to foster this connection, hoping we relate on a grand scale of humanity. He challenges readers to acknowledge a kinship with the enemy and to ‘make yourself heard. Howl.’” – The Missourian

Minnesota resident Benjamin Percy’s short story collection and first novel were published by Minnesota-based Graywolf Press.  He spent a year as the visiting writer in residence at St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN, and continues to work and write in the state.
