BOOK LAUNCH and LIVE EVENT
Grady Hendrix: Paperbacks from Hell LIVE > NOVEMBER 30
Type Books and The Miskatonic Institute of Horror Studies presents:
PAPERBACKS FROM HELL LIVE!
In the early Seventies, three books changed horror forever: ROSEMARY'S BABY, THE EXORCIST, and THE OTHER. The first horror novels to hit bestseller lists since 1940, they opened the floodgates for an avalanche of horror paperbacks to pour onto supermarket shelves throughout the Seventies and Eighties until SILENCE OF THE LAMBS slit the genre's throat in the early Nineties.
Writer Grady Hendrix, described by the Wall Street Journal as "a national treasure", delivers a mind-melting oral history of this now forgotten world of Nazi leprechauns, skeleton doctors, killer crabs, killer jellyfish, killer babies, pretty much killer everything. Prepare yourself for a tour of this long-lost universe of terror that lurked behind the lurid, foil-embossed, die-cut covers of...the Paperbacks from Hell!!!!
