Guest Blog: Jolie du Pre on Queer Horror

Review: Queer Horror

As a lover of horror and paranormal and as a member of the LGBT community, it’s great to find a horror/paranormal site devoted to horror/paranormal with an LGBT theme.

Queer Horror (

http://www.queerhorror.com/) is such a site.  Although it appears to have not been updated since 2011, and may be a site that is no longer operating, it’s still online and it’s still an excellent resource for readers to visit.

Here are five important sections of the site:

Vampires: It’s surprising to discover that there is only a fraction of content on the Internet about queer vampires despite the growing interest in vampires. GLBT folk too are fascinated by vampires; maybe more than the common lot because vampires have a unique lifestyle and uncommon relationships.  Here is a collection of all that’s both vampire and lesbian, gay, transgender or bisexual related. Sit back and enjoy!

Queer Horror Books: The site appears to have exploded since it was started and it actually has hundreds of books related to queer horror. Nobody has to feel left out! For a comfortable browsing experience, the site offers a short summary of a book’s content. Queer Horror has categorized the books into Vampires, Ghosts, Werewolves and the best of them all.

Queer Horror Movies: As we’re all aware, queer horror movies are not movies that are completely accepted by Hollywood. As this trend is just beginning to change, there aren’t many genres. However, the site offers a nice collection of all the queer horror movies that I’m aware of.

Queer Horror Sites:  Where is the best place to find queer horror links?  It’s at a queer horror site, of course.  Queer Horror offers a number of links to check out.  Links are a great way for queer horror fans to connect on the Internet.

Queer Horror Stories: Here’s a compilation of stories created by fans of queer horror.  The  The classic stories have been written a long time ago and, according to the site owner, are not subject to any copyright issues. Remaining content has been provided by the individual authors.  Go through the summary before you decide to read a story so that you may find what suits you and avoid any content that you may consider offensive.

LITRIA starts off THE M SERIES–an exciting new series of novellas by Jolie du Pré chronicling the Buscetto family, their deeds, and their victims.

LITRIA will be published this month.

Who’s lurking in Layneworth?

It’s the Buscettos—a charming family who live in a nice house?

Not quite.

The Buscettos look human, but they’re not human. They’re Zxxtergins, a type of little-known monster who has roamed the Earth since the fifth century. The youngest Buscetto, beautiful eighteen-year-old Litria, is in search of gorgeous females for sex, followed by food. Her nightly behavior wrecks havoc, causing her family to fear exposure and resulting in grave concern, extra work, and late nights for Layneworth detectives.

When nude and mutilated dead women appear, almost daily, across Layneworth, Detective Brenda Martin, and her partner Robert Moretti, are on the case. The mayor, before his untimely demise, preached to beware of werewolves, and few believed him. But as the killings increase, Brenda thinks she may have more than just a serial killer on her hands. Will Brenda discover the true monsters, and what happens if she does?
