Happy Friday the 13th!

Wow, a Friday the 13th in October. I can't think of a mo better day to make this announcement:

I have written-n-drawn a book about Friday the 13th and it's now available! Available to buy! You can hold one, clutch it to your bosoms and tell it all your secretest secrets!

Based on my Death Count tumblr of long ago (well, it started in 2014, I guess that's long ago enough), this book features each death in the series illustrated in full color, as well as writing about each film, a foreword by the inimitable Alexandra West, and even MORE artwork besides. More than 120 pages in all!

If all of this isn't enough to tempt you, look what these fine folks have to say:

"Stacie has always been one of my favorite weirdos. She's funny and smart and draws cool horror stuff. Buy it. Be smug." – Lena Headey, who is undoubtedly best-known for her role in the 2005 film The Cave.

But wait, there's more!

Okay, so if I've convinced you, here is the link to the Amazon listing for the book where you can buy it directly! The Kindle version will be available next week...I'll be sure to update this when it's ready.

Also I am taking pre-orders for a limited sketch edition. $45 will get you a copy of the book with a full-color sketch inside. Shipping is included, but this sketch edition is for folks in the United States only. Sorry international friends, shipping is a real (costly) drag! If you are interested, you can Paypal me at stacieponder (at) gmail dot com. Make sure to include your address and which character you'd like me to draw for you–just a character name, only characters from Part One (1980) through Jason X please!

Again, the sketch edition is a pre-order, and I'm only doing 25 of them! Once the list is full I'll get crackin' and mailin' 'em out. I'll update here when they're ready to be shipped.


Some folks may be interested in a signed copy of the regular edition–if that's the case, simply Paypal me the cost of the book ($19.95) and I'll mail you a copy of Death Count with my name scribbled in it. Again, shipping is included but it's for the US only.


I think that's it? How exciting. A book!

Off to buy one and CONGRATULATIONS Stacie! Just when it seemed you couldnt possibly get any cooler....

Is it weird to say I'm proud of you?? Yeah?

Too bad, I am anyhow.

Purchased! It will join Slashers 101 in my Final Girl library (does 2 books count as a library?).

Dean said...

Wait a sec. Didn't Lena Headey show up in a TV series at some point?

Stacie Ponder said...

@Dean...indeed, she is currently on Game of Thrones and was Sarah Connor on that Terminator show. But surely neither of those is more noteworthy/historically significant than The Cave!

Dean said...

Yeah, I was referring to "Game of Thrones", but I second your priorities -- as long as she's not playing Tyrion!

Hi Stacie! 👻 Longtime fan of your wonderful podcast GoD, just checking out your blog for the first time. I found my way to you & Anthony through the Faculty of Horror, my other favorite horror podcast. Since I’m only 4 years late to this post, I was wondering if signed copies of your book are still available through PayPal. My birthday is on Friday the 13th this year (next Friday!), and I thought it would be a perfect birthday gift to myself. Thanks so much for reading this, and for existing because you are the awesomest.

I also just read your 31 days of Suspiria posts (excellent, marvelous, effervescent, particularly day 25 - such revelations contained therein!) and was wondering if a PDF of your Suspiria zine was available somewhere on here? I looked and I Googled and came up empty and I am bereft because I need ALL of the Suspiria things now, please and thank you. 🖤🖤

Hi Nicole! Thanks so much for listening to the show and checking out FG!! (I love FAC tons)

I definitely appreciate you asking but unfortunately I don't have any copies of the book left at all. I'm going to update this post to reflect that! I'm sorry for any confusion. Also holy crap how has it been four years????

Regardless though, thank you again...and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
