SF, Fantasy & Thrillers
Welcome! There are many GLBT connections to Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror, and Suspense & Mystery Literature. Gothic Horror's founders were gay: Walpole, Lewis, and Beckford; and so is the modern master, Clive Barker. Several landmark works are by gay authors (Wilde's Picture of Dorian Gray, James's Turn of the Screw, Stoker's Dracula, Barrie's Peter Pan, Howard's Conan). GLBT authors sometimes write about non-gay characters with a special resonance (Woolrich's I Married a Dead Man), while straight-identified writers include key GLBT figures (Jackson's Haunting of Hill House). Alternative sexualities have also inspired a vital tradition (LeGuin's Left Hand of Darkness). In the past, GLBTs were villains or monsters, but increasingly their roles have become more diverse, complex, and open.

No bones about it, this is a vast subject. There are many ways of interpreting the importance of an author's – or character's – sexual orientation to a story, let alone a genre. Then there's the cultural/historical dimension. But theory aside, these books are terrific entertainment. Please suggest what should be included or omitted. NOTE: This list is representative, not exhaustive, so for most authors I've included only one work per genre. (You can search for more titles.)

next selectionDISCUSSIONJoin us on Thursday, February 13, 7:00 PM–7:50 PM to discuss Poppy Z. Brite's 1992 novel Lost Souls
PLEASE NOTE OUR MEETING LOCATION WILL BE LISTED IN THE READING GROUP E-MAIL NEWSLETTER: If you do NOT yet receive the newsletter, contact: jimwriter@bigfoot.com. The Genre Lit. Group meets from 7:00-7:50 PM, i.e., one hour before the main G&L Reading Group (you are welcome at both discussions – there will be ample time to get from the Genre Lit. Group to the main Reading Group). Also join us online, where you can post your comments, or engage in real-time chats, at the GLBT Genre Literature Forum. (Our group's previously-discussed books are listed at the bottom of this page.) Here are our upcoming selections:

  • February (Horror): Poppy Z. Brite's 1992 novel Lost Souls (NOTE: This acclaimed novel about "teenage" vampires has absolutely NO connection with the dreadful recent film of the same title)
  • March (Suspense/Mystery): Cornell Woolrich's novel I Married a Dead Man (link is to the excellent, inexpensive Cornell Woolrich Omnibus, which includes this novel, his story "Rear Window" – which inspired Hitchcock's film, and more)
  • April (Science Fiction): Samuel R. Delany's 1984 novel Stars in My Pocket Like Grains of Sand
  • May (Fantasy): J.M. Barrie's 1904 novel Peter Pan – NOTE: We are reading the NOVEL but NOT Barrie's play of the same title [here is an unabridged, free online copy of the novel Peter Pan]
  • June (Horror): to be decided at our next meeting
