Notes From Your Bookseller

Have you explored the horrors of Paperbacks from Hell: The Twisted History of '70s and '80s Horror Fiction by Grady Hendrix? Then it's time to delve into the actual paperbacks. The Auctioneer pushes all the limits, it is gruesome in all the best ways and it is certainly a story that lingers.

This B&N Exclusive Edition features unique cover details in an exclusive trade paperback format.

This special Paperbacks from Hell reissue includes an introduction by New York Times best-selling author Grady Hendrix and an afterword by the author's husband.

As the auctioneer carries out his terrible, inscrutable plan, the Moores and their neighbors will find themselves gradually but inexorably stripped of their possessions, their freedom, and perhaps even their lives by the ominous presence of a stranger impossible to resist...
