Paperbacks from Hell: The Twisted History of '70s and '80s Horror Fiction

Written in dead letters... and covered in blood!

Demonic possession! Haunted condominiums! Murderous babies! Man-eating moths! No plot was too ludicrous, no cover art too appalling, no evil too despicable for the Paperbacks From Hell.

Where did they come from? Where did they go? Horror author Grady Hendrix risks his soul and sanity (not to mention yours) to relate the true, untold story of the Paperbacks From Hell.

Shocking story summaries! Incredible cover art! And true tales of writers, artists, and publishers who violated every literary law but one: never be boring. All this awaits, if you dare experience the Paperbacks From Hell.

250 pgs. Only 3 copies at the library, but this is a book you'll likely want to keep around. Support your local independent book store and get a shiny new copy, or head to Amazon and pick up used for as little as $9.
