I’m happy to share that Unspeakable: A Queer Gothic Anthology has now been published. I’m really excited to be a part of this anthology of eighteen gothic stories by queer creators.
My own story in the anthology is Lady of Letters; or, the Twenty-First Century Homunculus, the title being a riff on the original publication title of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein; or, the Modern Prometheus. I’d been toying with the idea of a story about instant messaging and early social media for a while, but it wasn’t until I saw the call for submissions for this anthology that everything clicked into place.
If you’d like to read a story about having MSN arguments with your terrible online boyfriend and fake MySpace profiles with a mind of their own, as well as seventeen other stories, you can order Unspeakable: A Queer Gothic Anthology in print or as an e-book at the Nyx Publishing website.
