Discussion: Changing the Paranormal Paradigm


Today’s topic comes from QSFer Freddy Mackay:

Changing the paranormal paradigm in LGBTQ fiction. Some writers go outside what we’ve seen in gay romance, but they are borrowing from straight fiction, are there any more ways we can change paranormal to make it *new* or are we dependent on character and plot.

It’s a great question. We’ve seen such an explosion of paranormal titles – for a while, it was vampires, then shifters of all sorts. What’s new/next for LGBT paranormal fiction? How can we break out of the box?
