Horrorstör by Grady Hendrix cover

Horrorstör

"A book about a haunted IKEA store sounds like a joke and it is kind of funny for a while. Until it's not. Then it gets really, really scary. After reading it, good luck wandering around IKEA again."
- Brian H.

"Horrorstör is a horror comedy novel that turns the trope of "old, haunted house" on its head. A fun read despite its creepier tones while also providing a tongue and cheek commentary on consumerism."
- Erika, Southwest

My Best Friend's Exorcism by Grady Hendrix cover

My Best Friend's Exorcism

"A haunting thriller that takes place in South Carolina in the late ’80s, that's main focus is really the power and strength of female friendship."
- Erika, Southwest
