Instagram Twitter FacebookPinterestMy favorite work of Grady Hendrix s is actually his nonfiction collection of essays, PAPERBACKS FROM HELL, which is a loving homage to the horror genre that covers everything from Gothics to ghouls As someone who reads pulps on the reg, I was excited to see someone else who appreciated trash as much as I do there s something about finding an out of print gem that nobody has heard of and getting everyone excited about reading it it s like getting an ARC, but in reverse I love that feeling.
I ve read some of his fiction works, too, but the two that I read HORRORSTOR and MY BEST FRIEND S EXORCISM were better in premise than they were in execution It felt gimmicky, and the writing really couldn t carry off the story, sadly That said,
Grady Hendrix is a mood that I am here for.
This is not a fluffy, fun vampire book It was gruesome and savage, but I really liked it Living in Myrtle Beach, I loved the fact that this took place in Mt.
Pleasant, loved the fact it was in the early 90s, and loved the fact it was a book club at the heart of the story.
Most of the characters weren t particularly likeable UGH, the husbands , but that didn t take away from the story at all This was my first book by Grady Hendrix, but I will definitely readin the future when I want to be scared and grossed out.
