Night of the Living Queers is a YA horror anthology that explores a night when anything is possible, exclusively featuring queer authors of color putting fresh spins on classic horror tropes and tales.

No matter its name or occasion, Halloween is more than a Hallmark holiday, it's a symbol of transformation. NIGHT OF THE LIVING QUEERS is a YA horror anthology that explores how Halloween can be more than just candies and frights, but a night where anything is possible. Each short story is told through the lens of a different BIPOC teen and the Halloween night that changes their lives forever. Creative, creepy, and queer, this collection brings fresh terror, heart, and humor to young adult literature.

Contributors include editors Alex Brown and Shelly Page, Kalynn Bayron, Ryan Douglass, Sara Farizan, Maya Gittelman, Kosoko Jackson, Em Liu, Vanessa Montalban, Ayida Shonibar, Tara Sim, Trang Thanh Tran, and Rebecca Kim Wells.


Shelly Page (Editor) was raised in Chicago, maintains a long-distance love affair with New York, and currently resides in Los Angeles. By day, she’s a practicing attorney representing homeless LGBTQ+ youth of color. By night, she’s planning ways to bewitch her readers while simultaneously awakening their inner gay. Her editorial debut, Night of the Living Queers, is a QPOC horror anthology which received starred reviews from Publisher’s Weekly and Shelf Awareness. Her YA debut, Brewed with Love, is a queer paranormal romance to be published by Joy Revolution in Spring 2025.

Alex Brown (Editor) is a queer, biracial Pilipino American writer who loves rooting for the final girl—especially if she’s a monster. Alex is also one of the co-creators and producers of The Bridge, a spooky, folklore-filled audio drama podcast that has over 1,000,000 downloads to date! In a past life, Alex worked on Supernatural and Netflix’s Resident Evil, though now she lives a quiet life in Los Angeles with her partner and their two chaotic cats.

Alex has a short story in THE GATHERING DARK: AN ANTHOLOGY OF FOLK HORROR, which was an instant Indie Bestseller! Her YA comedy-horror debut, DAMNED IF YOU DO, was a Junior Library Guild Gold Standard Selection. It will be out on August 1, 2023 from Page Street YA.
