Queer Ghosts

Straight Ghost Books by Title


There are not a great number of GLBT ghost books, but those that have been found are listed here. Pleaes be forewarned, if you are looking for out-and-out horrific content you might be disappointed as this category contains mostly romance.

These are the items that have been found, a general description, and the general rating by the fans. (note: the ratings shows not only how good the story is, but also how well the horror or creatures are portrayed, and openly queer it is.  A really good non-gay item might score very low).

This page focuses on all straight ghost items.
