Y: The Last Man meets The Girl With All the Gifts in this explosive post-apocalyptic novel that follows trans women and men on a grotesque journey of survival.
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.
Manhunt is a timely, powerful response to every gender-based apocalypse story that failed to consider the existence of transgender and non-binary people, from a powerful new voice in horror.

Praise for Manhunt
“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, bestselling author of In the Dream House and National Book Award finalist for Her Body and Other Parties
“A raw horror-filled mouthful that will stretch your jaws to aching while you struggle feverishly to take yet another bite, and another, and another… A must-read, PERIOD.”—JORDAN SHIVELEY, author of Hot Singles In Your Area
“Manhunt is a vital, angry re-evaluation of the zombie apocalypse narrative, putting the spotlight on characters usually left behind and shamefully ignored. Vicious and charming, absolutely not to be missed.”—TREVOR HENDERSON, horror illustrator
“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, author of The Body Scout
“What a refresher it is to read Manhunt, where trans characters don’t just take center stage, but are imperfect and complex, and the horror around them and their reactions feel realistic and urgent. Manhunt is brutal and empathetic. This book is dripping with visceral imagery and vulnerability.” —ARCHIE BONGIOVANNI, author of A Quick & Easy Guide to They/Them Pronouns
“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, author of The Worm and His Kings
