About this book

The genre of horror has in the past been the exclusive province of heterosexual writers and themes, stereotypically involving a male antagonist and a female victim. Although the incursions into the field by such writers as Anne Rich and Poppy Z. Brite have largely blurred sexual orientation boundaries, there has never been an anthology of horror stories where the protagonists are clearly gay—until now.

Queer Fear is a striking and ambitious collection of gay horror fiction by some of today's hottest authors and talented newcomers, covering a wide range of creatures of the night and all manner of urban terrors. These dark and sometimes disturbing tales expand the boundaries of the horror genre, with the sexuality of their protagonists a point of reference for the "horror" of otherness that defines and, at times, divides us.
