On this week’s episode, I discuss my recent journey making may way through most of author Grady Hendrix’s fantastic horror novels. I’m mainly covering Horrorstor, Paperbacks From Hell, My Best Friend’s Exorcism, The Southern Book Club’s Guide To Slaying Vampires, We Sold Our Souls and just a bit about The Final Girl Support Group!
For what it’s worth, I think I realized why some might not connect to We Sold Our Souls as much. I think it’s because there’s no friendship at the heart of the story like there is in most of the other ones. This also explains why it feels more akin to HorrorStor to me because Amy’s in a similar boat.
If you’re interested, I wrote a bit about HorrorStorhere and covered Paperbacks From Hellhere.

On today’s episode, I’m running down five rad horror authors working right now who are not the master Stephen King. Over the course I talk about a dozen different books that have really hit me over the past decade or so. Hopefully you’ll find someone new to read as you listen!
Let’s keep this Best Of 2019 thing going! So far, I’ve covered my favorite classic horror movie viewings of last year and now I’m on to books. I keep this rad super hero wall-mounted shelf in my office and stack up the physical books I’ve read throughout the year. As you can see in this photo, I also have a list next to it that I can put digital and library conquests on as well. It sure makes it simple to do a list like this!
