All of the protagonists of the eight horror tales here are gay, allowing the author both a new twist on chiller standbys, such as vampirism and spirit possession, and an intriguing perspective on the complexities of gay life.

Qvamp says:

The first openly gay horror collection. This book set the stage for to Vampires Anonymous.

A collection of short stories, many involving vampires, all involving queers. Fun and often in a lighthearted sarcastic style. The stories cover many types of characters including ghouls, vampires, killers, ghosts and demons.

The realms of nightmare and reality converge in eight tales of suspense and the supernatural in this Lambda Literary Award-winning collection. Featuring a gruesome Halloween party, a vampire whose conscience bothers him, and a suburbanite with a killer lawn, these stories contain just the right amount of horror, humor, and eroticism.
