Lesbian Ghost Stories
Night after night, while reading this juicy anthology of lesbian ghost stories, I pictured myself at some lesbian retreat in the woods, under a full moon, cuddled around a cozy campfire, following a fellow camper's acoustic guitar and yet another rendition of "Kumbaya", I found myself engaged in some over-the-top, dramatic reading of "Haunted Hearths & Sapphic Shades" to the pleasant but jittery audience. Okay, so maybe that's just me. Filled with a darling variety from the cute and cliche, to the sweet and romantic, to the downright creepy, heebie-jeebies, Catherine Lundoff does an amazing job at editing this marvelous anthology of encounters with the undead kind. There is a little something for every ghost connoisseur, if they'd be open to such a "Sapphic" slant. Although, honestly, I'd give a few of the stories three stars for being a bit too eye-rolling, predictable, corny for me, the overall feeling one is left with, while alone reading "Haunted Hearths..." is that looking around seeing if anyone is watching you, "what was that noise" kind of sentiment. When I shared with certain people what I was reading I'd get an amused response like "lesbian ghost stories"? I'd say to them, "Well, yeah, ghosts can be gay, too".
