Remember Me by Christopher Pike

The one with the emergency butt icing.

The PikeCast is thrilled to be joined by author of Horrorstor, My Best Friend's Exorcism, and Paperbacks from Hell, Grady Hendrix to discuss Christopher Pike's 1989 book Remember Me, a tale of murder, the afterlife, jealousy, suicide, body switching, baby swapping, one too many sets of adults, and, of course, incest. We also learn of at least one strange family's solution to diabetic episodes. 

She did not understand that she was dead.

When Shari Cooper awoke at home after being at her girlfriend's birthday party, her family acted like she wasn't there. They didn't hear a thing she said. They wouldn't even look at her.

Then the call came from the hospital. Her father and brother paled. Her mother started to cry. Shari didn't know what was wrong. Not until she followed them to the hospital.

There she found herself lying on a cold slab in the morgue. The police said it was a suicide. Shari knew she had been murdered.

Making a vow to herself to find her killer, Shari embarks on the strangest of all criminal investigations. One in which she spies on her old friends, and even enters their dreams—where she comes face-to-face with a nightmare from beyond the grave. THE SHADOW—a thing more horrible than death itself. The key to Shari's death.

The only thing that can stop her murderer from murdering again.

Grady Hendrix is an American author, journalist, public speaker, and screenwriter known for his best-selling 2014 novel Horrorstör. Hendrix lives in Manhattan and was one of the founders of the New York Asian Film Festival.

    I just wanted to comment on what y’all were saying about the character Amanda from Remember Me.. how when she was caught going through Jimmy’s syringes in the bathroom and how that was weird… those were actually not his syringes or medicine !! She is diabetic as well and she was trying to take her own insulin.. Sherri just assumed it was her brother’s and she actually took it from Amanda.. which is supposed to be one of the reasons she was so weird that night.. she never took her insulin to level her out… then Sherri made her eat some birthday cake.. which she isn’t supposed to have due to her diabetes.. so that threw her even more out of whack.. remember she is Jimmy’s sister and she has diabetes just like him. Our guys are great!! Great podcast.. I love Christopher Pike 🙂

  • I felt like Peter knew what the Shadow was the entire time. And THAT’S why he was scared of it. He just Misled Sherri about it.

    The problem I had with the book was the cop sneaking in Amanda’s room to grab evidence. There’s no warrant! The evidence would be inadmissible!
