"Disarming."--The Wall Street Journal

"Hendrix conjures up some wonderfully gruesome imagery."--Nerdist

"An inventive, hilarious haunted house tale."--Bustle

"Hendrix's one-of-a-kind novel is an innovative hybrid of ghost story and satire, at once clever, gruesome, and hilarious."--Amazon Book Review

"If you've ever been frustrated trying to put together furniture from IKEA, you'll get a laugh out of Hendrix's spoof mystery."--New York Post

"Wildly fun and outrageously inventive."--Shelf Awareness for Readers, starred review

"If you see me in the wild and I'm reading a book that was written by Grady Hendrix, interrupt me at your own peril."--Sarah Gailey, Hugo-Award winning author of Magic for Liars

"A fun horror novel."--Library Journal

"A very clever ghost story."--Booklist

Praise for My Best Friend's Exorcism
"National treasure Grady Hendrix follows his classic account of a haunted IKEA-like furniture showroom, Horrorstor (2014), with a nostalgia-soaked ghost story, My Best Friend's Exorcism."--The Wall Street Journal

"Take The Exorcist, add some hair spray and wine coolers, and enroll it in high school in 1988--that'll give you My Best Friend's Exorcism...Campy. Heartfelt. Horrifying."--Minnesota Public Radio

"Clever, heartfelt, and get-under-your-skin unnerving."--Fangoria

"A touching story of high school friendship and, well, demonic possession."--Bloody Disgusting

"Terrific...Sharply written...[My Best Friend's Exorcism] makes a convincing case for [Hendrix's] powers as a sharp observer of human behavior, filtered through a fun genre conceit that doesn't skimp on the spooky--or the bodily fluids."--The A.V. Club

Praise for Paperbacks from Hell
"Pure, demented delight."--The New York Times Book Review

"A fast-paced ride, firmly rooted in the pulp horror tradition...Hendrix's darkest novel yet will leave readers begging for an encore."--Booklist, starred review

"Horror and humor play off each other in a delicate dance."--Nightmare Magazine
