Dale Pierce has contributed a number of short pieces for this page and will have more to come. Few people know too much about this man, however, and this piece will attempt to shed some light unto him.

In the past, Pierce wrote three horror novels. First was The Wind Blows Death, a western/horror piece written when he was right out of high school, followed by Play Me The Song Of Death in 1984 (Le Sang Du Matador in a French edition in 1986) [read book review here] and Bullring in 1991, two horror stories with bullfight themes. While these are out of print, barring existing and circulating editions at various places, there will be e-book versions of these ready in 2006, as well as possible foreign, traditional book form editions. So for those interested in him, take heart.

On the other hand, there are a number of nonfiction books available by this man:

Wild West Characters
Ordering information via Golden West Publishers at, covers biopgraphoies of gunfighters, killers, outlaws, boxers, wrestlers, politicians, bullfighters and others from circa 1865 to 1925 in America's wild western days. With photos. 

Find A Place To Die & Singing Rails
The former is a small picture book of hangings, dead outlaws and gravesites, covering the wild west again and Singing Rails is a photographic trainbook. Both were published by Alternative Publishing in California.

Riot At The Garden
A wrestling book, originally sold as a program at matches at the old and soon to be condemned Phoenix Madison Square Garden.

Death Rides The Horns
A electronic internet book, the first Pierce has ever done in this fashion and reportedly he has never seen a copy as the downloading- and computer-knowledge he has is that limited. Rumors have it he still does books on a typewriter. This imposed some problems for the respective e-publisher who had to redo everything for computerized form, without understanding Spanish or bullfighting, but wanting to publish this book, he did so anyway. The first prints had a number of typos that have since reportedly been fixed and odds are the book will now see trabnslation into a number of languages. Not for the weak of stomach or heart, this book deals with the deaths of numerous bullfighters in true Faces Of Death fashion.

Pierce grew up in Arizona, but presently lives in the midwest, with his wife, Denise. They have no children, but have two BETA fish for pets and a number of stuffed animals. One room in the house is called "The Habitat" and is filled with a multitude of stuffed animals, especially hippos. Uncharacteristic of someone who writes such graphic violence. He is a member of the masonic lodge and the eagles club, but no writer's organizations.
"I basically deplore social gatherings," he once said.

In the past, Pierce was a contributing editor for Official Wrestling, plus a contributor to Wrestling World and New Wave Wrestling in the 1980's and 1990's. He also wrote bullfighting columns for a number of Spanish and Mexican papers, plus magazine articles on a number of subjects. Horror and horror film remain his strong points, his favorite realm. Over the years he has done many interview and articles with both name and unknown cinema personalities, for newspapers, magazines and the internet.

"The greatest interview I ever did was with the Canadian director, Andre Van Heerden, and I have been writing stuff on him ever since, because I like his work and like him," Pierce explained. "Ditto for Armand Mastroiani out of New York. Of the older people, Bradford Dillman gave me tremendous interviews and also Paul Naschy and the late Armando De Ossorio in Spain."

Was there a director or actor he always wanted to meet but did not?

"One in particular," said Pierce. "During my last trip to Spain many years ago, I was also going to fly to Rome and stay a few days where I was going to try to meet Sergio Corbucci, who directed Companeros, The Great Silence, Hellbenders and so on. Anyway, I did not. I figured I'd catch him next trip but there was no next trip. Like the other Sergio, Sergio Leone, this Sergio, my favorite Sergio, Corbucci, died from a heart attack."
