Paperbacks from Hell | Grady Hendrix

So this week I bought another bookshelf. I was in the search for almost a year with money my friends gave for my birthday (is in February) so first was the car with books and then this last one. Because a reader never has enough space for books... #bookshelf

Thanks @LeahBergen for recommending this fantastic trip through the weird world of 70s and 80s horror books. I think Hendrix made a critical decision for this project: even though there's some attention to why certain themes became popular and publishing industry trends, the crazy plot summaries are the focus. And the audio narrator reminded me of a movie trailer voice for heartwarming family films, which worked really well for some reason 😁

Nute I always enjoy reading your thoughts on books. I guess now I‘m interested in formulaic considerations for 70s and 80s horror books. Weird world stuff!😂 2mo
Billypar @Nute Thanks! Yeah, it's funny there were so many books mentioned that I probably wouldn't read but loved hearing about in synopsis form. 2mo
LeahBergen The audio narrator! 😂😂 Yes, that does sound somehow fitting. 2mo
Billypar @LeahBergen At first I thought it was an intentional thing to be funny, but I think it was just that narrator's style. Which is even better 😃 2mo

this was a quick but interesting read 😊 I really enjoyed Hendrix's analysis of various pulp-y paperbacks though I wish parts of the books were organized better (history of horror fiction vs specific themes/recurring topics) and I would also love to hear more of Hendrix's recommendations for specific titles. Still, I enjoyed the analysis of the various time periods and how they influenced many of the books.

Leftcoastzen I really enjoyed this book.He has great affection for the topic. 3mo
uwak @Leftcoastzen absolutely! I enjoyed how much he wanted to get a lot of these lesser-known authors out there. 3mo

aaaaand my next #nightstand book 📚 honestly I just want to marathon Hendrix's stuff asap but my tbr stack is getting out of control 😭 so far this book has been awesome, with Hendrix detailing different cultural aspects from the time period that influenced various authors and I'm especially enjoying his spotlights on the cover artists in addition to the authors.

@TheReadingMermaid

TheReadingMermaid Nice!!! Have you ever looked into Ania Ahlborn? if not she's definitely worth a read. Pretty much any book she's ever written. They are all good. 🧟‍♀️ 4mo
BookwormAHN @TheReadingMermaid I've read a few of her books and really enjoyed them 👻 4mo
KathyWheeler I love all of them except Darcy Coates, and that‘s only because I haven‘t heard of her. Is there a book of hers that you‘d recommend as a good one to start with? 4mo
