Special Topics and Guest Posts

Guest Post: The Intimacy of Monsters by Hailey Piper
I adore cosmic horror, but it isn’t what I usually write.  Don’t get me wrong, I’ve penned a couple, but I’m happier leaving that scale of world-ending dread to P.L. McMillan and Caitlin Kiernan.

Guest Post: The Inherent Power of Words to Describe Oneself By Alice Collins
Words are a powerful thing. I’ve struggled with them a lot over the years. Especially with trying to find the right descriptors.

Guest Post: All Vampires are Gay, or: Why I Tried and Couldn’t Write a Proper Queer Horror History Essay By J. Danielle Dorn
Since I couldn’t find anything anyone else had written about the history of queer women in horror, I figured the old axiom about writing it myself would hold true for nonfiction same as it does for fiction. It doesn’t.

This month we spoke with Alex from Hey Little Thrifter for the LOHF Shelf Edition!

Ladies of Horror Fiction Pride Recommendations
The Ladies of Horror Fiction put together a list of horror authors that are members of the LGBTQIA+ community.
