- The book's title is taken from the line, "If it bleeds, we can kill it," spoken by Dutch in the film Predator. The similar Alien anthology published earlier the same year, Aliens: Bug Hunt, likewise takes its title from film dialogue, in that case from Aliens.
- Several of the stories feature characters from other films and novels in the Predator franchise, including Sloane and Mary from Predator: Turnabout, Harrigan and Garber from Predator 2, and "Snow Dog" Halley from the Rage War trilogy.
- Several of the stories also feature real historical figures, or reference real-life events or myths.
- Of the 18 authors contributing to the anthology, Kevin J. Anderson, Tim Lebbon, S. D. Perry, Steve Perry and John Shirley have all previously written stories for the Predator franchise, be they novels, video games or comic books. Additionally, Weston Ochse, Larry Correia and Jonathan Maberry previously contributed short stories to the Aliens: Bug Hunt anthology.
