My new book is My Best Friend's Exorcism, set in 1988, during the Satanic Panic that had Americans looking for Satanists under every heavy metal album. A touching story of high school friendship and demonic possession, it's basically Beaches meets The Exorcist with all the E.T. love, Phil Collins, wine coolers, United Colours of Benetton perfume, and demons from Hell that personified the 80s.

Here's what the critics are saying about MYBFEX:
"Hendrix was outrageously inventive with his debut novel (Horrorstör, 2014) and continues his winning streak with a nostalgic (if blood-soaked) horror story to warm the hearts of Gen Xers." - Kirkus
"...few writers are better equipped to find imaginative ways to serve as a gateway author between a mainstream readership and full-on, boundary-exploding horror fandom than Hendrix. His ability to fuse the fantastic into the familiar recalls the heyday of Stephen King." - Fangoria
And here's what actual people are saying about it:
“My Best Friend's Exorcism possesses you with that perfect 80s horror vibe from sentence one and doesn't let go until the truly moving ending. A great mixture of nostalgia and terror — If only Wes Craven was still around to film this!”
- Fred Van Lente, author, Action Philosophers, The Amazing Spider-Man
“A riveting and poignant story of an enduring friendship. I'll admit it, I got a little weepy! But don't worry, there's plenty of good, clean, horror fun.”
- Sarah Langan, author, Audrey’s Door
"It does for the awkward teenage years what Jaws did for the beach!"
- JT Petty, director, The Burrowers, Hellbenders
“A huge win. It works as an exorcism thriller but feels like more than that, steeped in that particular coming-of-age sadness, feverishness, and joy.”
- Austin Grossman, author, Soon I Will Be Invincible, You: A Novel
"Fast-paced and witty, this novel balances moments of true horror with a portrait of true friendship and the lengths to which one friend will go for another."
- John Langan, author, House of Windows, The Wide Carnivorous Sky
