STARRED Reviews in Library Journal and Booklist!

“A modern horror masterpiece.” —
Carmen Maria Machado, bestselling author of In the Dream House

Gretchen Felker-Martin's Manhunt is an explosive post-apocalyptic novel that follows trans women and trans men on a grotesque journey of survival.

“Disgustingly rendered and brilliantly imagined…. A fresh, stomach-turning take on gendered apocalypse.” —
NPR

“Keeps up a relentless velocity while just being plain fun as hell.”—
Torrey Peters, author of Detransition, Baby

Beth and Fran spend their days traveling the ravaged New England coast, hunting feral men and harvesting their organs in a gruesome effort to ensure they'll never face the same fate.

Robbie lives by his gun and one hard-learned motto: other people aren't safe.

After a brutal accident entwines the three of them, this found family of survivors must navigate murderous TERFs, a sociopathic billionaire bunker brat, and awkward relationship dynamics—all while outrunning packs of feral men, and their own demons.

Praise for this book

"Manhunt provokes in the best possible ways. Humane and pissed off and funny and real and acerbic and tragic. It does everything a book can do, but still has time to be a full-on horror novel with some of the most grueling sequences I've ever read, ever." - Adam Cesare

"The feel-bad classic of the decade. A pitiless, nerve-shredding descent into Hell; as ruthless as it is perceptive, Manhunt reached into my chest, tore my fears out, and showed them to me. Felker-Martin writes the best queer horror on the market." - April Daniels

"Out of the exuberantly gory splatterfest emerges a tender celebration of women and women's bodies, no matter how reviled and monsterized, in all their capacity for pleasure, resistance, and life." - Maya Deane

"Taut, visceral, terrifying. A gripping tale of trans survival, rendered in Gretchen Felker-Martin's exquisite, uncompromising prose. You can't turn the pages fast enough." - David Demchuk

"Manhunt is a razor-sharp novel, and Felker-Martin is here to raise the bar for post-apocalyptic fiction. Prepare to take a bite that will stain your jaws red." - Meg Elison

"Manhunt is a celebration of trans people and a literary blitzkrieg against TERFocracy. Timely and necessary, this is extreme horror that says something. Listen to it." - Gabino Iglesias

"Every ten years or so, a horror novel comes along that pushes the genre to terrifying new heights. Manhunt is such a novel. An emotional buzzsaw of a book that left me shaken." - Brian Keene

"It's beautifully written, a barbed hook that will dig deep and split you open." - Cassandra Khaw

"An iconic masterpiece of modern fiction. Dark and vicious. Visceral and uniquely devastating. Reading this book had the same comfort and unpleasantness of wearing an ornate scarf made of razor wire, and I loved every second of it." - Eric LaRocca

"Reading this book was like tonguing a live wire; I loved every moment and I still haven't recovered. As erotic as it is devastating, as brilliant as it is visceral, Manhunt is a modern horror masterpiece." - Carmen Maria Machado

"Equal parts terrifying and transgressive, every page of this thrilling novel drips with blood, ichor, and other bodily fluids. Felker-Martin is an author who remembers horror isn't supposed to play nice. Manhunt will grab you by the throat on page one and won't let go until the end." - Lincoln Michel

"Felker-Martin can write: Manhunt expertly drops one political target after another, breaks your heart with nearly every character, and keeps up a relentless velocity-- all while just being plain fun as hell." - Torrey Peters

"Juicing up an unforgettable post-apocalypse, this gorgeously queer, messed-up beautiful beast of a novel scrapes glass shards over nerves while offering readers an affectionate whisper. A unique, brain-searing nightmare that's full-on teeth and claws, and all heart too." - Hailey Piper

"A must-read for fans of post-apocalyptic horror. Felker-Martin's prose is stellar, her characters are compelling, and her novel's pace is tremendous." - Lucy A Snyder
