The Wall Street Journal calls him “a national treasure.” His mother calls him “Sunshine.” Now author Grady Hendrix brings his one-man show about psychic teenagers to Fantasia with SUMMERLAND LOST: A GHOST STORY IN PROGRESS. Telling the all-shocking, all-true tale of Victorian teenagers who spoke to the dead, this is the real life story of how biomechanical sex cults, the ghost of Ben Franklin, and Arctic explorers all teamed up to answer the ultimate question: is there life after death?

Grady Hendrix is the author of the novels “Horrorstör”, about a haunted IKEA, and “My Best Friend’s Exorcism”, which is BEACHES meets THE EXORCIST. One of the founders of the New York Asian Film Festival, he’s written about machine gun collectors, ninjas, the Confederate flag, and Jean-Claude Van Damme for Playboy, Variety, Slate, and the New York Post.

“[Hendrix’s] ability to fuse the fantastic into the familiar recalls the heyday of Stephen King”


“Hendrix... doesn’t seem like the kind of guy who would enjoy watching a man bite through his arm while masturbating inside a burlap sack, but he is”

— New Yorker
