[Pride In Horror Month] – Shadow Self: A Short Story

Mina parks the beat-up truck a block away and together, we follow the winding sidewalk to the front steps of the old Rochester house, sweater hoods pulled low over our heads. One of the porch columns is sagging, taking the roof with it. It’s a testament to laziness that the house still stands in aContinue reading “[Pride In Horror Month] – Shadow Self: A Short Story”

[Pride In Horror Month] – Science Fiction-On the Future Anonymity of Love

Oh, if only I could live inside a science fiction series! If I could, I would stop being the ‘L’ in LGBTI! You see, the only time I’m reminded of ‘being’ gay/lesbian is when it’s imposed from the outside. I can’t recall a day in 10+ years when I woke and had an awareness ofContinue reading “[Pride In Horror Month] – Science Fiction-On the Future Anonymity of Love”

A single misplaced cutContinue reading “[Pride In Horror Month] – Love Never Dies: A Short Story”

[Pride In Horror Month] – Writing the Queer

I write about them a lot in my dark fiction. Sometimes they start out hidden, revealed slowly and with care, their addition not always central to the narrative. Other times they are front and centre, bold and proud and in your face. But however they appear, they’re always there, even if you don’t realise it.Continue reading “[Pride In Horror Month] – Writing the Queer”

[Pride in Horror Month] – Misanthropes Get Lonely Too: The Forgotten Queer Film From Horror’s Angriest Man

Even in the age of boutique label reissues and abundant cinema blogs, Andy Milligan and his body of work are still a cult within a cult amongst cinema fans. If his name is mentioned at all, it is usually only in a passing (and unfavorable) comparison to fellow microbudget movie maker Ed Wood. The utterContinue reading “[Pride in Horror Month] – Misanthropes Get Lonely Too: The Forgotten Queer Film From Horror’s Angriest Man”
