There has always been a special relationship between queer culture and horror. Horror is a genre about the “other” and being a part of queer culture often comes with feelings of “otherness” or being an outsider based on your desires, maybe you see a freak onscreen during a midnight madness screening and you think to yourself, Well, I feel like a freak too.
Maybe the monster is just misunderstood—we all hunger for something, right?
Dark Rainbow: Queer Erotic Horror is the first volume of a short fiction anthology series edited by award-wining queer writer and editor Andrew Robertson. Published under Riverdale Avenue Books’ Afraid imprint, it features many members of the Horror Writers Association along with writers from all over the world.
Dark Rainbow contains 15 tales of dark appetites, hidden fantasies, sex and slashers including new work from Angel Leigh McCoy, Jeff C. Stevenson, Sephera Giron, Julianne Snow, Derek Clendening, Spinster Eskie, Lindsay King-Miller and many more.
