child murder

book cover

They were teenagers when they first stumbled upon the horror. Now they were seven grown-up men and women who had gone out into the world to gain success and happiness. But none of them could withstand the force that drew them back to Derry, Maine to face the nightmare without an end, and the evil without a name.

Qvamp says:

One of the early victims of the evil was a gay man, and the book also spends a long time talking about the inception of a gay bar in main. Overall, a fairly positive gay portrayal (for Stephen King that is).

For more information, please see the article 'Queens in King'.

Overall Rating: A     Queer horror Rating: B+    

There are gay characters in the novel. However, bar for The pot from '1984-85' they are largely absent. This is an amazing work of horror literature, though, in my humble opinion, it is only a B+ in the 'queer' category.
