KC Grifant comes out guns blazing with MELINDA WEST: MONSTER GUNSLINGER –a devious action-packed adventure set in a very weird version of the Old West. Fast, furious, and a hell of a lot of fun!

-Jonathan Maberry, NY Times bestselling author of SON OF THE POISON ROSE and RELENTLESS


This fun, imaginative, and confident series opener will be a massive crowd pleaser for general audiences, especially for those who enjoy a wide range of popular weird western offerings.”

Library Journal (full review


Melinda West is the hero I’ve been waiting for as long as I can remember. The world and characters are vivid and magical. This story is a delight.

Kate Jonez, Bram Stoker and Shirley Jackson Award-nominated author 


Grifant writes with a deft hand, giving us compulsive prose and an easy feeling for her storytelling. I found I was utterly shocked at how much book I was devouring and how quickly…Grifant is a powerfully imaginative author who paints cinematic pictures easily with her descriptions and will make you feel the dust and smell the gunpowder time and time again.

-Steve Stred, Splatterpunk-Nominated author of SACRAMENT, MASTODON and CHURN THE SOIL (full review)


I’ve been absolutely riveted to the story KC weaved, and adored everything about it. Imagine Supernatural’s hunting … combined with the most badass female lead you can imagine, amazing supporting characters, nail-biting suspense, great action, and the grunge and grit you expect in a Western.”

Tasha Reynolds, horror reviewer and host of The Ghoulish Gallery podcast (full review)


“I relished every genre-blending minute of this story—strap in for a bumpy and exhilarating ride.”

-Jerry Roth, author of THROWING SHADOWS: A DARK COLLECTION and BOTTOM FEEDERS


“KC Grifant’s horror western hits the road at top speed and never takes its foot off the accelerator, making the book a perfect fit for readers who like their horror weird and their action plentiful.

Grifant’s heroine is a delicious amalgamation of Ash Williams in wise-cracking bravado and Ellen Ripley in triumphant fearlessness…I found myself putting off going to sleep each night just so I could continue on to the next chapter.”

Ginger Nuts of Horror (full review


“Haunting, chilling, and entertaining…The story felt like a natural blend of The Witcher, the cult classic video game Darkwatch, and a mind-bending Lovecraftian story. The twists and turns in the narrative and the powerful draw of the protagonist will have readers enthralled with this brand-new saga that introduces a hero worthy of the reader’s attention.”

Anthony Avina, author of IDENTITY and owner of Cosmic Writing Studios (full review)


The first sentence pulls the reader in, and once you start, it’s hard to put this fast-paced novel down. 

Grifant’s debut is fast-paced, genre-blurring, and fun to read..the twists and turns will keep you guessing and engaged.”

H.V. Patterson (full review on Dreadfulesque)
