In this episode, Mackenzie and Lisa chat with Grady Hendrix. We talk about his history with theater, bad author events, the appropriate number of cats, and his philosophy of honest writing.
Grady Hendrix has written about the confederate flag for Playboy magazine, terrible movie novelizations for Film Comment, and Jean-Claude Van Damme for Slate. He’s covered machine gun collector conventions, written award shows for Chinese television, and answered the phone for a parapsychological research organization. His novel, Horrorstör, about a haunted IKEA, has been translated into 14 languages and is currently being developed into a television series. His most recent novel, My Best Friend's Exorcism, is now out in paperback, and he’s the screenwriter of 2017’s Mohawk, a horror movie set during the War of 1812. He recently won a Stoker Award for Paperbacks from Hell, a non-fiction history of horror paperbacks in the Seventies and Eighties.
