Grady Hendrix's Paperbacks from Hell

Post by Alien Redrum » Mon Sep 09, 2019 3:21 pm

If you dig the stellar art on horror paperbacks in the '70s and '80s, Grady Hendrix's Paperbacks from Hell is really a phenomenal book that takes a deep dive into both the art and the trends at the time.

The physical version is coffee-table sized and is gorgeous. However, my copy is autographed and between that and the size, it's a bit much to take on my daily commute. However, it is currently going for $2.99 for the Kindle, and it's beautiful on the fire.

Can't recommend it highly enough.

Also, Stuart just interviewed the author if that floats your boat: https://www.horrordna.com/features/inte ... dy-hendrix
