    Wait! Don't! The sharks! They– Eeeehh!


    The PikeCast finishes out a trilogy that we began way back in episode 16 by digging into Christopher Pike’s 1995 book Remember Me 3: The Last Story. As it had been prophesized, Grady Hendrix, author of The Final Girl Support Group, My Best Friend's Exorcism, and Paperbacks from Hell, has returned, fulfilling his destiny to complete this trilogy, with a book that bears almost no resemblance to either of the books that came before it, and seems obsessed with the idea that a best-selling author could literally save humanity with their stories.

    The Listeners by Christopher Pike

    Author Hailey Piper returns The PikeCast to dig into another of Christopher Pike's adult novels, 1994's The Listeners. While touching on many of Pike's recurring themes, including ancient lizard races, The Listener finds a way to be truly terrifying, often as it draws us into a group that may or may not be a cult.

Love it

I’ve tried others, but this is the best 90s YA horror podcast. I’ve been listening since the beginning and will be here until the end. Keep up the awesome work.

The original pod does it better

Smarmy, unpleasant, overly critical hosts.

SOO much fun- been loving the nostalgia

These books were such a huge part of my middle school life- when I stumbled across this podcast I was absolutely thrilled! I credit Pike for the foundation that got me into reading at that age- I’d done Sweet Valley High and the Babysitters Club but this were so outrageous to me at the time that I started begging my mom to take me to book stores :) After these I started L’Engle and later Christie. But I loved the unsettling feeling a bunch of these books gave me, so when I discoed Ender in my 20s I dove into sci fi. I stopped reading Pike before he wrote the vampire books, so my addiction was to the early stuff and I’m so happy to see so much of it here.
