One of Good Housekeeping‘s 30 of the Scariest Horror Books Ever Written

“This funny and fresh take on a classic tale manages to comment on gender roles, racial disparities, and white privilege all while creeping me all the way out. So good.”—Zakiya Dalila Harris, author of The Other Black Girl

“Ghosts of the past have also inspired one of the most rollicking, addictive novels I’ve read in years: The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires by Grady Hendrix, a tale of housewives battling vampires that is sweetly painful, like hard candy that breaks a tooth.”—Danielle Trussoni for The New York Times Book Review

“A delight…its incisive social commentary and meaningful character development make The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires not just a palatable read for non-horror fans, but a winning one.”—USA Today, 3.5 out of 4 star review

“Delightful read that reads like Dracula set in the ’90s American South….Perfect for fans of horror and real-life crime alike.”—Good Housekeeping

“The novel is a charming testament to friendships and life’s imperfections, with dashes of rot and savagery to earn its keep in horror literature….It’s a rollercoaster [that] lands as a vampire story concreted in vileness and Southern charm.”—Fangoria

“[Hendrix] remains excellent at staging page-turning sequences of excitement and anxiety…[and] a master of adding little details that fill in the landscape of his Southern-fried world.”—The A.V. Club

“As fun (and as creepy) as the title suggests….This novel will definitely whet your appetite if you’re looking for something a bit eccentric and spooky.”—BuzzFeed

“This book should be required reading for all Southern women….[It] transports you back to all the best parts of the 1990’s while throwing more than enough thrill and chill into the mix.”—Country Living

“[A] clever, addictive vampire thriller….This powerful, eclectic novel both pays homage to the literary vampire canon and stands singularly within it.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Hendrix cleverly sprinkles in nods to well-established vampire lore, and the fact that he’s a master at conjuring heady 1990s nostalgia is just the icing on what is his best book yet. Fans of smart horror will sink their teeth into this one.”—Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Hendrix has masterfully blended the disaffected housewife trope with a terrifying vampire tale, and the anxiety and tension are palpable…a cheeky, spot-on pick for book clubs.”—Booklist, starred review
