BAQWA Presents: Horror Show 2021
by R.L. Merrill

Curl up with your favorite warm beverage this fall and leave a light on. It's time for Horror Show 2021.


The Bay Area Queer Writers Association is proud to present this inaugural collection of spooky tales featuring authors Wayne Goodman, M.D. Neu, Richard May, Liz Faraim, and R.L. Merrill. Sometimes writing about the things that frighten us helps us cope with real-life terror, and these stories are all a product of a scary time.


**All proceeds from this limited-time anthology will be donated to the Billy DeFrank Center in San Jose, California.

They are based in Silicon Valley, but they have members from all over the Bay Area. This group is open to anyone who loves to read and wants to help support area authors. You don't have to live in the Bay Area to be a member, you just have to love Queer books and enjoy reading.
