The nights are getting longer and longer, and what better way to pass the darkest time of the year than with a terrifying anthology of queer horror, featuring stories by some of the most talented authors I know?


Horror has never looked this enticing. New release, All in Fear, is a gorgeous collection of horror tales from some of the hottest names in queer fiction. Be prepared to be titillated…and terrified.

Today I’m thrilled (and also petrified!) to tell you all about this creepy, eerie, haunting anthology! Not only that, but author Roan Parrish joins us to talk about the blend of romance and horror (spoiler alert: it involves Tom Hiddleston).

So turn on all the lights in the house, lock your doors, and ignore that strange creaking sound coming from the empty room next door…

All in Fear

Kris Ripper has a new book series out called Queers of La Vista, and you absolutely need to be reading it.

Mel calls it “fabulous” and “[her] favourite so far” in the QOLV series (check out her five-star review here)! Each book can be read as a stand-alone.
