Grady Hendrix is a novelist and screenwriter based in New York City. His novels include Horrorstor, named one of the best books of 2014 by National Public Radio, and My Best Friend’s Exorcism, for which The Wall Street Journal dubbed him ‘a national treasure.’ Paperbacks from Hell, his survey of outrageous horror novels of the 1970s and 80s, was called ‘pure, demented delight’ by the New York Times Review.
