Mid-Sentence | Queer Horror Stories
As a genre horror has always been transgressive. New works by Cristina Rivera Garza and Samantha Hunt reveal the special power in queer horror writing to defy norms of gender and sexuality. From Carmilla and Dracula to It Follows and The Babadook, horror has long demonstrated its ability to break boundaries by reframing contemporary social and cultural tensions into themes of terror and anxiety. Whatever phobia may dominate a particular cultural conversation or broader moment in time—xeno, homo…

Mid-Sentence | Mean: Myriam Gurba with Emily Gould and Ruth Curry
The story of a woman who grows up queer and Chicana—and takes no prisoners. Part true crime, memoir, and ghost story, Mean chronicles Myriam Gurba’s coming of age as a queer, mixed-race Chicana. Blending experimentation and biting humor, Gurba takes on sexual violence, small towns, and race, turning potential tragedy into comedy. For all its humor and innovation, Mean makes the impact of sexual assault, racism, misogyny, and homophobia all too clear. Joined by Emily Books editors Emily Gould…
