Monster in the Closet is a history of the horrors film that explores the genre's relationship to the social and cultural history of homosexuality in America. Drawing on a wide variety of films and primary source materials including censorship files, critical reviews, promotional materials, fanzines, men's magazines, and popular news weeklies, the book examines the historical figure of the movie monster in relation to various medical, psychological, religious and social models of homosexuality. While recent work within gay and lesbian studies has explored how the genetic tropes of the horror film intersect with popular culture's understanding of queerness, this is the first book to examine how the concept of the monster queer has evolved from era to era. From the gay and lesbian sensibilities encoded into the form and content of the classical Hollywood horror film, to recent films which play upon AIDS-related fears. Monster in the Closet examines how the horror film started and continues, to demonize (or quite literally "monsterize") queer sexuality, and what the pleasures and "costs" of such representations might be both for individual spectators and culture at large.

The New York Times bestselling author of Every Dark Corner returns to Baltimore, where a father-daughter reunion puts innocent victims in the sights of a stone-cold killer… Baltimore PI Clay Maynard routinely locates missing children for clients, but his own daughter—stolen by his ex-wife—has eluded him for years. Until she turns up right under his nose… Since she was a child, Taylor Dawson believed the lie her mother told her: that her father was a monster. But now she has a chance to get to know the real Clay while doing real work as an equine therapist, which includes helping two girls whose mother was brutally murdered. She might even find something deeper with her boss’s handsome son, Ford Elkhart, whose eyes are so haunted. But just as Taylor feels her life opening up to new family, work, and friends, a danger lurks in the darkness—one that will show Taylor the face of true evil…

There's a monster in Baby Kai's closet, and he is determined to get out! In this story, Baby Kai, who has seen his fair share of dangerous adventures with his big brudder Davy and friends, must face this danger alone. Unfortunately, unlike his big brudder Davy, Baby Kai has yet to be granted super powers and must face his fears without them. Author Danual Berkley and illustrator Amariah Rauscher are at it again. Danual's primary focus as an author is closing the diversity gap and lack of representation for children of color in children's literature, while educating others on black culture through Amariah's amazing illustrations. *Two coloring pages and a word search are located in the back of the book.

"A multi-media project involving photographs and installations, the cosmology of Monsters in the closet considers the relation of time and memory (specifically childhood memories). The title of the work refers both to the fantastic things we imagine as children, and the fear of the unknown, existing only for the brief instant before the lights are turned on."--Page 2 of cover.

Not everyone has the opportunity to attend a high profile murder trial. Attending such a trial held with a family member as the defendant brings trials of its own. Standing in support of the victims requires something from within that not everyone has. The headlines announced that the police in Grand Rapids were in search of a truck driver who was raping and killing young men. The news was alarming, but not unlike many other headlines of the day. The trucker was arrested and revealed to be my step father. I began to examine the past, taking notes and contacting media sources in Michigan. What I found would change my view of my step father, my family, and myself. Here I relay a gripping recount of his past crimes, his disguise as a straight family man, and his recent rampage that forever changed the lives of young men in western Michigan. His association to the Oakland County Child Killings (OCCK) are undenialble after reading this work.
