Update: My latest novel, We Sold Our Souls, is a finalist for the 2018 Goodreads Choice Awards. Vote early, vote often!

Grady Hendrix is the author of the novels Horrorstör, about a haunted IKEA, and My Best Friend's Exorcism, which is like Beaches meets The Exorcist, only it's set in the Eighties.

He's also the jerk behind the Stoker award-winning Paperbacks from Hell, a history of the 70's and 80's horror paperback boom, which contains more information about Nazi leprechauns, killer babies, and evil cats than you probably need.

And he's the screenwriter behind Mohawk, which is probably the only horror movie about the War of 1812 and the upcoming Satanic Panic.

Thank you, FCC, for posting this disturbingly detailed Simpsons complaint.

The students eventually catch Principal Skinner in the gym. As they begin to overtake and subdue Principal Skinner, one of the students empties out a large, brown-colored drawstring bag that is filled with various sports balls (soccerballs/baske...

The Lake by R. Karl Largent

Setting up a book about giant, mutated, killer fish then devoting 80% of the pages to the efforts of a small town managing a cloud of toxic vapor is the very definition of self-defeating.

This book is so good that it inspired Stanley Kubrick to hire Johnson to write the screenplay for The Shining. Kubrick ain't wrong.

“Let's make sure it's really raining before we worry about floods.”
Grady Hendrix, Horrorstör

“I love you, Gretchen Lang. You are my reflection and my shadow and I will not let you go. We are bound together forever and ever! Until Halley’s Comet comes around again. I love you dearly and I love you queerly and no demon is bigger than this!”
Grady Hendrix, My Best Friend's Exorcism

“The problem was the liars. They said she could do anything she set her mind to, they told her she should shoot for the moon because if she missed she’d be among the stars, they made movies tricking her into thinking she could achieve heroic things. All lies. Because she was born to answer phones in call centers, to carry bags to customers’ cars, to punch a clock, to measure her life in smoke breaks. To think otherwise was insane.”
Grady Hendrix, Horrorstör

Oh, thanks! That's really nice of you! I'm so glad you liked the first book and I hope you're not disappointed in the second. I think you'll have fun with it!
