Our 2021 Goodreads Choice Award Nominees


RESULTS UPDATE: The votes are in, and we’re thrilled to announce that Grady Hendrix’s THE FINAL GIRL SUPPORT GROUP has won for Best Horror!

Grady locked his victory with over 45,000 votes from Goodreads users, even beating out the horror heavy hitter, Stephen King. This is the second year in a row one of Grady’s books has been nominated for this category, with last year’s SOUTHERN BOOK CLUB’S GUIDE TO SLAYING VAMPIRES winning 3rd place.

Goodreads writes: “Author Grady Hendrix has carved out his own unique domain in horror by playing around with the genre’s blurry edges and recurring tropes. His latest novel—and winner of this year’s Best Horror award—considers the scary movie concept of the final girl, the one victim who fights back, defeats the killer, and lives to see another day. Hendrix’s open question: What if some of these women got together?”

Huge congratulations, Grady! And thank you to everyone who voted for him and our other authors in the 2021 Goodreads Choice Awards!
