Get Thee to NYC for Grady Hendrix’s PAPERBACKS FROM HELL

Tommorow night, Tuesday September 19th, author and performer Grady Hendrix comes to NYC’s Miskatonic Institute to deliver his own of a kind oral history of horror fiction. We’ll be talking to him in the coming weeks about the experience of this event and all of the crazy awesome stuff he’s been working on, but everyone in the NYC area and within driving distance needs to get out there tomorrow to catch this unique experience.

See what this event is all about below, then get your ass to Greenpoint’s Film Noir Cinema on Tuesday!

In the early 70s, 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 flood supermarket and drugstore shelves throughout the 70s and 80s, before “Silence of the Lambs” slit the genre’s throat in the early 90s.

Fresh off last year’s one-man show, SUMMERLAND LOST, Grady Hendrix delivers a mind-melting oral history of this wild and woolly world of Nazi leprechauns, skeleton doctors, killer crabs, killer jellyfish, and killer fetuses, featuring hair-raising readings, a William W. Johnstone quote-off, and more tales of terrifying tots, tricycles, clowns, puppets, and heavy metal bands than should be strictly legal. 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!

Justin has been running websites since his first Geocities site in 1994, but only did he ever start covering anything of substance years later. After he stopped regularly running local concerts in Northern NJ and the greater Philly area, he knew he needed to step up his writing game if he expected to continue to get free music to listen to. He writes regularly here and at Cinapse, as well as contributing to a few other sites on occasion. He likes music, film, the Philadelphia Eagles, the 76ers, talking about Criminal Justice, reading Intelligence Report, and his family... not in that order. His beautiful wife is far more talented than he is and his kids far more adorable... and crazy.
