[Pride In Horror Month] – Tempest on the Mountain: A Short Story

The wind screamed with her as she chased the empty trash can across the bare ground. She had envisioned bright green grass, newly grown and soft under her bare feet, her music energetic and loud while she freshened up the cabin. Cleaning up racoon scat and broken glass hadn’t crossed her mind. They’d been hereContinue reading “[Pride In Horror Month] – Tempest on the Mountain: A Short Story”

[Pride In Horror Month] – “Queer Fear” Book Review

I recently finished reading “Queer Fear” by Michael Rowe, and it left me in my feelings quite a bit. This book was originally published in 2000: a mere 30 or so years after the stonewall riots, and 20ish from the start of the AIDS epidemic. Being gay 20 years ago was nothing like it was today, justContinue reading “[Pride In Horror Month] – “Queer Fear” Book Review”

[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 ] – “Jook Joint” and “The Outfit”: A Review

It’s no secret that the world of Comics is dominated by white men, from creators to characters.
