Longlisted for The Guardian's Not the Booker Prize 2020.
Thinking they have put their monster-hunting days behind them, Oscar Wilde and Bram Stoker return to their normal lives. But when their old ally Robert Roosevelt and his nephew Teddy find a new nest of vampires, they are once again pulled into the world of the supernatural, this time in the American West. A train robbery by a band of vampire gunslingers sets off a series of events that puts Bram on the run, Oscar leading a rescue party and our heroes being pursued by an unstoppable vampire bounty hunter who rides a dead, reanimated horse.

"Stoker's Wilde West is an almost impossible novel to stop reading once you start it, full of surprises along the way, unexpected twists, and a cast as fearless as it is diverse. If this becomes a saga, I think we are going to enjoy it a lot." -- Tinta Nocturna
"In Stoker's Wilde, we got our first taste of a fantastical alternate history and its peculiar characters. With Stoker's Wilde West, Hopstaken & Prusi have taken this and developed it into a world that is vivid, encapsulating, and thoroughly enjoyable." -- The Unseen Library
"Stoker's Wilde West is, quite simply, an addictive, clever and extremely fun horror adventure."
"Fast, furious, funny, action-packed, gory, fast-talking with a hint of fantasy and science fiction thrown into the mix. What's not to like in another winner from Flame Tree Press, an imprint to look out for, and If the little teaser at the end is anything to go by we might have more adventures to come? Let's hope so." -- Concatenation
