WELCOME TO THE FINAL GIRL SUPPORT GROUP
Bestselling author Grady Hendrix (Paperbacks from Hell, My Best Friend's Exorcism) welcomes you to a very special support group, so have a seat, coffee's in the back, and remember there's no cross-talk. Then prepare yourself for a guided tour of the history of murder books, because ever since the invention of the printing press we've been using it to tell stories about killing each other, from bizarro 19th century Jack the Ripper fan fiction, through Psycho, the industry-changing success of Silence of the Lambs, all the way up to today. Along the way you'll encounter astrological assassins, the female authors who wrote serial killer books first, and primal hamster trauma as together we try to figure out what it means that so much of publishing is about selling murder for fun.
" The Final Girl Support Group sizzles with action, originality, and a gleaming concept sharp as a scalpel."-- Charlaine Harris, #1 New York Times bestselling author
In horror movies, the final girls are the ones left standing when the credits roll. They made it through the worst night of their lives...but what happens after?
Like his bestselling novel The Southern Book Club's Guide to Slaying Vampires, Grady Hendrix's latest is a fast-paced, frightening, and wickedly humorous thriller. From chain saws to summer camp slayers, The Final Girl Support Group pays tribute to and slyly subverts our most popular horror films--movies like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and Scream.
Lynette Tarkington is a real-life final girl who survived a massacre. For more than a decade, she's been meeting with five other final girls and their therapist in a support group for those who survived the unthinkable, working to put their lives back together. Then one woman misses a meeting, and their worst fears are realized--someone knows about the group and is determined to rip their lives apart again, piece by piece.
But the thing about final girls is that no matter how bad the odds, how dark the night, how sharp the knife, they will never, ever give up.
Pray for morning, wish for speed, and be as quiet as you can, it doesn't matter--Grady Hendrix's The Final Girl Support Group already knows where you live and breathe.-- Stephen Graham Jones, New York Times bestselling author of The Only Good Indians
"A great read...[Hendrix] excels at writing horror humor... His characters are funny and real, though at least one will definitely lose a limb at some point...Though the final girls' plight has all the scares of great horror fiction, there is an element of truth in their situation that will be recognizable to anyone who has experienced real trauma." - The New York Times
Equal parts thrilling and darkly funny. - Time
