“Originally released in 1974, Let’s Go Play at the Adams’ has gained a massive reputation as one of the most terrifying horror novels ever published.”
They’re only kids.
That’s what Barbara keeps telling herself. But now the twenty-year-old babysitter is getting a little worried.
It’s just a game.
She finds herself bound and gagged, the binds holding her knotted tight … so tight her wrists are starting to hurt.
She keeps telling herself, “They’re just kids … It’s only a game,” but this game is about to turn deadly.
Why we’re excited about this book:
Very little is known about Mendal W. Johnson. It seems he wrote this one bestseller and simply vanished. Long out of print, with used copies fetching high prices even in paperback, the book has found a new home with Valancourt Books. Originally released in 1974, Let’s Go Play at the Adams‘ has gained a massive reputation as one of the most terrifying horror novels ever published. Publishers Weekly said of the book: “Will harrow you and haunt you long after you have finished it.”
With an introduction by Grady Hendrix (revealing new information about the author for the first time ever), Let’s Go Play at the Adams’ by Mendal W. Johnson releases from Paperback From Hell 10 March 2020 and is available for pre-order now.
