I enjoy a good horror movie binge but I'm not a reader of horror. Still, as a some-day aspiring writer, a fan of well written history, and someone who loves haunting the aisles of used bookstores for hours at a time to bath in the nostalgia of the cover art and back cover teasers of the paperbacks of the 80s and 90s this book seemed interesting (especially since it promised cover art!!) Well it delivered that and so much more. So humorous at times that I laughed out loud and called my sister to read her some of my favorite descriptions and commentary, I even found some book titles and authors that I think I'll look up and read in the near future. Definitely a fun and interesting read. It's browsing the used book store with a friend with witty commentary when you can't go to the used book store. Thank you for this gem!!!

Awesome book for book collectors. I love it so much that I have started a new book collection of 70s & 80s horror books. This in addition to two other collections. LOL. Lots of photos of the covers and back info. into the books. This book is all about paperback editions.

A very fun and informative trip through the days of horror paperbacks. Hendrix doesn't look very old, so he must have done a ton of research for this project. Kudos to him for braving the massive pile of mostly horrible books so that we could experience it without regret. I did note all of the books I haven't read that sounded great. Now I have an even crazier To Be Read pile. Thanks, Mr. Hendrix. I give PAPERBACKS FROM HELL 5 stars.
