"Reading this book was like tonguing a live wire; I loved every moment and I still haven't recovered. As erotic as it is devastating, as brilliant as it is visceral, Manhunt is a modern horror masterpiece." --Carmen Maria Machado, bestselling author of In the Dream House and National Book Award finalist for Her Body and Other Parties"Manhunt is a vital, angry re-evaluation of the zombie apocalypse narrative, putting the spotlight on characters usually left behind and shamefully ignored. Vicious and charming, absolutely not to be missed." --Trevor Henderson "Juicing up an unforgettable post-apocalypse, this gorgeously queer, messed-up beautiful beast of a novel scrapes glass shards over nerves while offering readers an affectionate whisper. A unique, brain-searing nightmare that's full-on teeth and claws, and all heart too." --Hailey Piper, author of Queen of Teeth "Taut, visceral, terrifying. A gripping tale of trans survival, rendered in Gretchen Felker-Martin's exquisite, uncompromising prose. You can't turn the pages fast enough." --David Demchuk, author of Red X "A raw horror-filled mouthful that will stretch your jaws to aching while you struggle feverishly to take yet another bite, and another, and another...A must-read, PERIOD." --Jordan Shiveley, author of Hot Singles In Your Area "Equal parts terrifying and transgressive, every page of this thrilling novel drips with blood, ichor, and other bodily fluids. Felker-Martin is an author who remembers horror isn't supposed to play nice. Manhunt will grab you by the throat on page one and won't let go until the end." --Lincoln Michel, author of The Body Scout "What a refresher it is to read Manhunt, where trans characters don't just take center stage, but are imperfect and complex, and the horror around them and their reactions feel realistic and urgent. Manhunt is brutal and empathetic. This book is dripping with visceral imagery and vulnerability." --Archie Bongiovanni, author of A Quick & Easy Guide to They/Them Pronouns "Felker-Martin can write: Manhunt expertly drops one political target after another, breaks your heart with nearly every character, and keeps up a relentless velocity-- all while just being plain fun as hell." --Torrey Peters, author of Detransition, Baby "Every ten years or so, a horror novel comes along that pushes the genre to terrifying new heights. Manhunt is such a novel. An emotional buzzsaw of a book that left me shaken." --Brian Keene, bestselling author of The Rising and End of the Road "I hope that as many people as humanly possible read Manhunt. It gives you a deep gift of human understanding and empathy through nearly indescribable body horror and mortal terror." --Felix Biederman, New York Times bestselling author of The Chapo Guide to Revolution
