Praise for "The Creed of Violence"
"Boston Teran's The Creed of Violence is a terrific story and beautifully written. It works as a story about imperialism, and it's also a touching tale of fathers, sons and one very bad man's attempts at regeneration. But most of all it's exciting and tense and you'll probably read it, as I did, in one great sitting." --Robert Ward, author of "Red Baker" and "Four Kinds of Rain"
"Teran's considerable skills sneakily transform his characters, who use language like a concealed weapon. His Rawbone, a raconteur straddling the gutter between the old West and belle epoque, is a Manila line braided with wit, cold-blooded efficiency, and a surprisingly expansive soul--a romantic cynic too wise to misinterpret derision for insight. The hallucinogenic epic he traverses with young John Lourdes produces one of the most exciting literary pairings since Fagin met Twist." --Todd Field
Praise for "God Is a Bullet"
"Ranks with Joan Didion's "The White Album" . . . and John Ford's classic film "The Searchers"." --"The San Francisco Examiner"
"A millennial morality play . . . that might well have been written by William Blake [and] James Ellroy . . . if they'd all sat around with a few gallons of absinthe." --"Dallas Morning Herald"
Praise for "Never Count Out the Dead"
"Cements Teran's talent as a . . . virtuoso." --"Publishers Weekly"
