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.
