Featured in Autostraddle, Apartment Therapy, Goodreads, and more.

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

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

“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.

A Macmillan Audio production from Tor Nightfire.

Critic Reviews

“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, best-selling author of In the Dream House and National Book Award finalist for Her Body and Other Parties)

“An audacious dystopian story...destined to be one of the year’s most talked-about novels.” (Electric Lit)

“I dub this the great Terf-pocalypse novel.... I cannot underscore enough how much I love this novel.” (CrimeReads)

Gross, fun, gutsy pulp at its best.

I was doing dishes while listening to the audiobook when That Scene happened. I just stood there, like a war wife looking out the window, seeing the army hearse pull into the driveway, water running over.

This gory, venomous, gleeful, vulnerable book dared me to be a braver writer, narrator, and queer, and for that I will always love it. Major credit to Felker-Martin for this amazing story, and Pucciariello is now one of my favorite narrators. Her work here is an incredible performance, and both are women to watch.

Five Stars

this book is great. If you think you will like it, you will. and if the concept is disgusting to you then you very much will not. I loved how messy and gross this book got, but like the best horror it had alot to say about our real world. I enjoyed this alot and will be sharing it with anybody I can.

Good read.

Page turner. I see now why so many reviews called this book vile and disturbing, in a good way.

Post-Apocalyptic Horror at it’s finest!

As brutal as it is devastatingly beautiful. This story will stick with me for a very long time. It’s brilliant!

Katherine Pucciariello did a delightful job capturing and exuding each character’s personality. Awesome performance!

hard to tell what thoughts are

I really loved the story, but I think this might be a "read, don't listen" type of book. It was confusing in some parts to tell of a character was speaking out loud or thinking to themselves. I had to listen to sections a couple times to make sure I understood which were just thoughts. I also have the feeling some words may have been emphasized in the text. I think this book may need to be read to be fully enjoyed (and listened to after that experience, it was a good performance)

Trans Wastelanders Take On Josephine Girlbbels

The narrative voice contains a shocking breadth of referential content (from pop culture, New England provincialisms, to queer theory and its indoor baseball) and weaves it into a skillful literary register. A refreshing read for lovers of post-apocalyptic speculation and queer people tired of cruciblesque Discourse.

going to have to postpone listening

audio quality is terrible. I don't know who salt this is, but I'm going to try to do some post-processing on this to fix it

a great idea, poorly executed

I couldn't finish. too much telling, not enough showing. it felt like the author was more interested in shock value than telling a complete story. I only cared about one character, Robby, who was the only one with any emotional depth.

Heart wrenching

Okay - so people are maybe going to know this from the negative reviews , from the controversy - good - I hope you hate listen to this and it’s absolutely heart wrenching tale of people - just people trying to get by at the end of the world - the insightful way it captures the trans experience- in a could be wilderness - brought me to tears - I really want to come back to this place to find out what happened to Robbie or Beth - outstanding

Great listen!

Really enjoyed this book! You can tell who hasn’t read it and are jumping to faux outrage!
Completely messed up in parts - but isn’t that why we like this genre!
Thank you to the Daily Mail and Anti-Trans Activists for recommending this book! Will definitely be supporting Gretchen Felker-Martin more by exploring more of her work!

Powerful horror

This is a dark horror adventure with a lot of blood and a lot of heart. It made me grimace and laugh in equal measure. Not for the faint of heart but definitely worth a read or listen.
I would definitely check out more from this author. The narrator was good too, I liked the accents.
