Whispers about In the Closet, Under the Bed

“From lyrical to poignant to funny to beautifully grotesque and back again, this smart, gleefully original collection showcases Lee Thomas’ Herculean talent. What I love most though, is that Thomas gets the purpose of horror: to cast light on the darkness, so that we readers recognize what is good, what is obscene, and what our society has confused between the two.” – Sarah Langan, Award-Winning Author of The Missing and Audrey’s Door

“Lee Thomas’ stories always start as a come-on, with silky smooth prose that draws you into a comfortable world so effortlessly you fail to see the razor-sharp teeth before it’s too late. This is horror at its best, guaranteed to leave you with the shivers, whether you wanted them or not.” – David Wellington, author of Monster Island and 23 Hours

“Lee Thomas brings to the writing of queer horror fiction a versatile sense of genre and a fierce emotional agenda. Here is a man with issues, as well as back issues. This intense and dynamic collection includes dark psychological narratives, grim physical horror, visionary fantasy, crime and science fiction. You will find fifteen stories in which the multicolored threads of horror and queer sexuality are woven together – but which are, first and foremost, stories about human nature.” – Joel Lane, British Fantasy Award-winning author of The Lost District and The Terrible Changes
