The Girl in the Video

The Girl in the Video by Michael David Wilson

“Propulsive, modern, funny, frightening. The Girl in the Video will make you think twice about opening any anonymous videos sent your way. Then it’ll make you think twice again. Michael David Wilson has long added to the genre with his incredible podcast/press This is Horror, but here he offers a book, and now it’s time for someone else to interview him.”

—Josh Malerman, New York Times bestselling author of Bird Box, Unbury Carol, and A House at the Bottom of a Lake

FROM THE CREATOR OF THIS IS HORROR, COMES A NEW NIGHTMARE FOR THE DIGITAL AGE.

Advanced Praise

“The Girl in the Video took me somewhere I didn’t want to go via a route I didn’t want to take. It’s an unsettling story of love, lust and cultural disorientation that’ll flirt with you and then, when you’re at your most vulnerable, take full advantage of your good intentions.”
—David Moody, author of Autumn and Hater
“Compelling, tense, and disturbing, Michael David Wilson has created a frightening story here that’s only too possible in our over-connected world.”
—Alan Baxter, award-winning author of the Alex Caine series
