5.0 out of 5 stars Not just fanged and furry horror! June 2 2013
By Benito R. Corral - Published on
Nowadays the horror and urban/paranormal fantasy genres seems replete with anthologies centered around one theme or another; shapeshifters, vampires, zombies-they all have had the starring role. But it's harder to find a good, solid anthology that just has "horror"as its central idea, and harder still when the theme is "queer horror".

I haven't read such a book since 2002 when Michael Rowe's Queer Fear came out. That book, along with its successor Queer Fear 2, was an ambitious and critically acclaimed collection that thrust "queer horror" into the spotlight and filled a vacancy in the horror genre that hadn't been occupied before. Now Night Shadows: Queer Horror continues that fine tradition with a fresh, new collection of stories that encompass many facets of horror, not just the fanged and furred kind.

I am a big fan of anthologies but I am always prepared for each one I read to be a mixed bag;there are always some stand outs and some clunkers. This time, however, I found that each story was a worthy entry and the collection as a whole made for happy reading. Here are my favorites:

The Zealous Advocate by Carsen Taite; a well written, bloody revenge story...

Matinee by Vince A. Liaguno is another juicy revenge story and also an ode to the slasher horror films of the 80s...

Capturing Jove Lunge by Steve Berman was for me the most erotic entry in the book; a darker, pulpy tale ..

All The Pretty Boys by Michael Rowe is another of the sexier entries here, a seductive werewolf story...

Filth by 'Nathan Burgoine is one of the creepiest stories I've read in a long time. I literally felt my skin crawl as I read favorite of the bunch!

Blackout by Jeffrey Ricker is an eerie ghost story, well told by the author who keeps the tension mounting throughout the entire piece.

As I said, each of the stories here are good, solid tales but these listed here are for me well worth the price of admission alone. Night Shadows: Queer Horror does an excellent job of exploring and celebrating the gay horror genre and will appeal to fans of horror from every walk of life.

Happy reading!

I loved reading the collection of short stories, as a horror buff it makes me happy to finally see LGBT growing in this genre, give it a go and enjoy the different aspects of horror.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well-written, diverse anthology of queer horror stories Jan. 27 2013
By Bob Lind - Published on
At a time when it seems werewolves, vampires and zombies are plentiful in LGBT supposedly-"horror" stories, it is very refreshing to find this collection of fourteen excellent short stories, all by well-known authors, who understand that there is much more to the genre, and a bit of subtlety can be very frightening.

The stories in this anthology are quite diverse and all well-written. The longest is the final story, "Ordinary Mayhem" by Victoria A. Brownsworth, exploring the connection of a uniquely-talented photographer to her deceased grandfather. I also liked Steve Berman's delicious "Capturing Jove Lunge," about a man who is summoned to pose for an eccentric mogul who lives for his art and his plants. Felice Picano offers "Room Nine," a fable suggesting a sinister reason for outsourcing. The other stories are similarly unique and engaging.

One of the better anthologies I have encountered in recent years, and I give it a full five stars out of five.
