[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] – The Silhouette Man: A Short Story

Trigger Warning: This short story may contain sensitive content. I don’t know how long I’d been unconscious, but when I came to I awoke in my worst nightmare. Surrounded by complete darkness, the cold prickled my skin. I thought I’d been buried alive in nothing but my underpants.

[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!

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”

Pride is my favourite time of year next to Halloween, and I love supporting my fellow LGBTQ creators (all year round, of course, but especially now!)

[Pride In Horror Month] – Playing Possum: A Book Review

To begin, a quick rundown on the genesis of this novel. Forgive me if you’ve heard this one before. After Alan Baxter wrote The Roo to go along with a brilliant cover designed by the unparalleled Kealan Patrick Burke, the Twitter community continued piling on the peer pressure, looking for other authors to write creatureContinue reading “[Pride In Horror Month] – Playing Possum: A Book Review”
