"You may find yourself trying to stock up on old titles so you can get your fill of gloriously trashy scares."--Bustle "[Hendrix's] love of the genre shines through as he pokes gentle fun at some of the era's more entertaining reads, and speaks with genuine appreciation of other titles whose horrors stand the test of time."--BookRiot "Terrific...Written with wit and affection, lavishly illustrated with a wide selection of the era's cover art, Paperbacks from Hell was an attempt to reckon with the tidal wave of horror narratives that filled the bookshelves for two decades."--Locus "The ultimate resource for paperback horror novels from the '70s and '80s."--Bloody Disgusting "The very best horror novel reference material on the shelves right now, bar none."--Dread Central "As a reference book, as a celebration, and as an appreciation, it's one of the best books about the horror genre that I've ever had the pleasure to read...This gets my highest possible recommendation."--Blu Gilliand, Cemetery Dance "[A] literary house of horrors."--Houston Chronicle "[Hendrix] approaches 20th century genre fiction with a historian's eye and a comic's sense of humor and timing."--The Oklahoman
