Edited by Vince A. Liaguno and Chad Helder.
Something unspeakable is coming out of the closet...
From the ghosts of dead lovers and malevolent queer faeries to devious doppelgangers and twisted psychopaths, an eclectic lineup of award-winning writers from the horror and GLBT literary communities come together in this groundbreaking collection of queer horror stories. These tales will surprise with their universally resonant themes while exploring the deeper aspects of the closet experience - coming out, staying in, and being haunted by. Join Lee Thomas, Sarah Langan, Jameson Currier, Rick R. Reed, Scott Nicholson, Kealan Patrick Burke and others as they throw open their literary closet doors with 23 chilling tales. Be prepared as these master dark scribes reveal what lurks in those shadowy corners at the back of our closets. And the horrors found there promise to be unspeakable.
Chad Helder is the author of The Pop-Up Book of Death, a collection of dark poetry, and The Vampire Bridegroom, a horror book of narrative poems and flash fiction.
With Vince Liaguno, Helder co-edited Unspeakable Horror: From the Shadows of the Closet (Dark Scribe Press, 2008), which won the Bram Stoker Award.
Helder wrote the comic book Bartholomew of the Scissors (Bluewater, 2008) and a series of stories for Vincent Price Presents (Bluewater, 2008-2011), some of which have been produced as radio plays by the Colonial Radio Theatre in Boston.
