“Monsters stalk many of us in our dreams, and sometimes in our waking hours. For the lgbtq+ community, the monsters are very real. Centuries of homophobia and violent hatred, the AIDS crisis, and ignorance have long brought terror. Red X blends dream monsters and daylight monsters in a century-spanning tale of horror. Young men disappear without a trace, and more and more people in the lgbtq+ community become threatened and vulnerable. Weaving his own history with his fictional tale, Demchuk has created a spellbinding work where reality, fiction, and metaphor blur and blend together seamlessly and frighteningly. This is a story to listen to only in the light of day. Even then, it may stalk you in your sleep.”Nancy, Raven Book Store
