Dead people don’t make good boyfriends. At least, that’s what Grant tries to remind himself. A painter, Grant moved into his apartment to be alone and to work on his art, only to discover the resident ghost, Joey. It’s not all bad. Joey is a pretty good listener, a good model – and he’s hot. (M/M)

Grant blinks slowly; reaching back to rub his head, but there’s no blood. Thank God. He might faint if there was. Joey’s panicked eyes dart all over him, and Grant realizes just how close they are. Close enough to touch… if they could touch.

His cheeks flush in embarrassment and a little of something else as he tries to shift, pushing himself up.

“Do you have a concussion?” Joey demands, pressing his hands together since he can’t do anything else. He reaches forward, and Grant watches his hand pass the side of his face, a ghost of a touch. He swears he can feel the breeze, but that’s insane. Joey can’t even sit down. He can’t make air move.

Something aches deep inside Grant as he stares up at Joey. If only he were real, if only he could reach up and touch him. He shakes himself sharply, though. Joey is dead, has been for a while. Maybe he does spend too much time with his paints.

Reaching Out

An Anthology of Gay Erotica

Some men don’t know they’re there, if they can’t see themselves reflected in a lover’s eyes. If they aren’t there, they need never be real, never take chances, and are free lock themselves away with their obsessions. But then they meet someone, a special man in whose eyes they become real, solid—and hot. That man gets past their walls, stops them in their flight from a sordid past, and who pushes them into their dreams… In this volume, ForbiddenFiction presents six of E.E. Grey’s stories about men reaching beyond the limits of their fears and becoming real, in love.

Touched by Death – Anthology

An anthology of erotic encounters with death that balances sexy and horror in a way that makes readers squirm.

Unattainable love has always been one of the favorite themes of romance. Who could be more unattainable than the dead? Here are ten erotic tales of love and loss, terror and hope, and of course desires that cannot or perhaps should not be fulfilled. Here is the “little death” alongside the big Death. Here are people dying—and killing—for love.

Touched by Death is a erotic horror collection of stories filled with the living and the dying, the dead and the ones who come back. Within you’ll find attempts at reviving lost love, new views on courting death, and evidence that obsessive vampire stalkers are not always romantic—though zombies sometimes are.
