book cover

The classic reference on alternative sexuality in science fiction, fantasy and horror. It contains detailed annotations that document and describe the representation of alternative sexuality in a wide array of novels, stories, films and videos. An incisive evaluation the writers' political, philosophical, sexual, emotional and/or literary positions on gay and lesbian issues, the guide serves as a window on the changing popular attitudes towards sexual variance over several centuries.

Suitable for both scholars and general readers, this unique guide is coded for easy use as a quick reference, yet detailed enough for in-depth research in the fields of science fiction, feminist and gay studies, social history, and human sexuality. It is an essential reference that will be welcomed by all followers of science fiction, fantasy, and horror.

Qvamp says:

This is a resource book for finding out about queer characters in science fiction, fantasy and horror. It is very well researched and quite thorough, and is essentially the grand-pappy of queer horror information.

It is not a story, and is only a collection of reference with a quick blurb about each one.
