I've been a "fan" of Ken's for quite awhile, having discovered his blog by accident. I've thoroughly enjoyed his work there and was thrilled to learn he was penning a new book on GLBT ghosts!
Somehow in the field of paranormal research people tend to forget about sexuality. Whether it is because of the incipient religiosity of many investigators who are uncomfortable with the subject or simple ignorance of how much our sexuality affects our lives and even our deaths, it's refreshing to see the topic covered in Ken's book.
This book is a wonderful collection of ghost stories and folklore that connect to the GLBT community is various ways. However, unlike many strict folklorists, Ken goes out of his way to bring us stories that can be verified as historically accurate. This takes his work from the realm of regurgitating urban (or suburban) legends to being an interesting exploration of where history and folklore intertwine.
The book is a great read and Ken's personality and attention to detail shine through. I'm pleased to have this work in hand finally and pleased to recommend it heartily to all who are interested in the paranormal and in particular this oft neglected corner of the paranormal world.
