It Waits Below
It waits no more!
In the 1800s, an asteroid carrying an extraterrestrial life form crashed to earth and sunk a Spanish treasure ship. Now, a trio of salvage experts dives a three-man sub to the deepest part of the ocean to recover the sunken gold. There, they confront a nightmarish alien organism beyond comprehension, which has waited for over a century to get to the surface. It finally has its chance.
As their support ship on the surface is ambushed by deadly modern-day pirates, the crew of the stranded sub battles for their very lives against a monster no one on Earth has seen before.
“IT WAITS BELOW is a perfect summer horror read, sure to sate any and all gore-addicts and jaded sci-fi E.T. geeks. It will keep you utterly off-guard and guessing what’s to happen next!”

“Eric Red’s latest novel from Samhain Publishing is a perfect follow-up to his werewolves vs. gunslingers tome, THE GUNS OF SANTA SANGRE. In IT WAITS BELOW, Red mixes a little Lovecraftian mythos with classic, big screen Sci-Fi as an ancient beast, buried deep under the ocean, has awakened after a long slumber. The book reads like a Hollywood blockbuster with all the fixings as a deep sea team battles both the alien menace and pirates in an attempt to save mankind!”
– Famous Monsters Of Filmland Magazine. (Editor’s Pick Nov/Dec 2014 issue)
“IT WAITS BELOW is a page-turner, an action-packed, underwater thriller that packs a powerful punch, liable to keep you up all night, feverishly turning pages.”
– Lansing State Journal.
“It’s all in how you tell the tale, and Red tells the tale like a seasoned skipper surrounding a bonfire and his mates on a rarely visited island off the coast of No Man’s Land. The action is steady, the mystery is alive and the novel’s conclusion will leave your head spinning 360 degrees. There isn’t a base that goes uncovered in Red’s latest, and if terror on water tales float your boat, IT WAITS BELOW is an absolute must-read.”
