Bury Your Gays
is a heart-pounding new novel from bestselling author
Chuck Tingle about what it takes to succeed in a world that wants you dead.

"Brilliantly bloody, wildly fun, and extremely scary, Bury Your Gays brings a sledgehammer down on tired tropes and makes a masterpiece of their guts."—Rachel Harrison, national bestselling author of Black Sheep

Misha knows that chasing success in Hollywood can be hell.

But finally, after years of trying to make it, his big moment is here: an Oscar nomination. And the executives at the studio for his long-running streaming series know just the thing to kick his career to the next level: kill off the gay characters, "for the algorithm," in the upcoming season finale.

Misha refuses, but he soon realizes that he’s just put a target on his back. And what’s worse, monsters from his horror movie days are stalking him and his friends through the hills above Los Angeles.

Haunted by his past, Misha must risk his entire future—before the horrors from the silver screen find a way to bury him for good.

An Indie Next and LibraryReads Pick! A Best Books of Summer 2024 by Esquire & Reactor

“Tingle cements his place in horror with this gory romp...[his] vivid, visceral storytelling combines with prescient insight into the corporate dynamics that rule mainstream media. The result is smart, subtle, and a bloody good time.”
Publishers Weekly (STARRED review)

“Tingle burst onto the traditional publishing scene with one of the best books of 2023 (Camp Damascus), but his follow-up is even better ... taking readers on a highly entertaining, fast-paced ride, filled with thought-provoking satire, original monsters, and some of the most realistic characters they will encounter on any page, all to prove that love is real and horror itself is, at its core, a celebration of life.”
Booklist (STARRED review)

“Tingle’s latest outing is another refreshingly original look at horror... His hallmark inventiveness with structure, trope, and genre come through clearly here and are balanced perfectly....Captivating and creative, Tingle continues breathing new life into old tropes with a gory examination of art and the lives that fuel it.”
Library Journal, (STARRED review)

“Brilliantly bloody, wildly fun, and extremely scary, Bury Your Gays brings a sledgehammer down on tired tropes and makes a masterpiece of their guts. A profoundly smart and emotionally resonant novel that is sprinkled with cinema magic and a brutal Hollywood reckoning.”
Rachel Harrison, national bestselling author of Black Sheep

“RIP gay clichés! Wickedly funny and hella entertaining, this takes great pride in digging up Hollywood's skeletons and gleefully pounding them to dust. I loved every eerie, nostalgic, blood-spattered, rainbow-flag-waving page.”
Josh Winning, author of Burn the Negative and Heads Will Roll

"This triumph of a book effortlessly and cleverly upends cliche. One of the best novels ever about LA, the film industry, and horror movies, it delivers all the fandom, fear, and feels, and then some. Only Chuck Tingle can tell a story as masterfully as this, and he once again proves that love is so real."
—CJ Leede, author of Maeve Fly

“Gory and goosebump-inducing horror.”

"Bury Your Gays is a horror of epic proportions."

"Bury Your Gays is Tingle's best work yet. It deserves to be the literary equivalent of a massive summer blockbuster.... If you were on the picket lines last year, if original stories are important to you, if you too believe that love is real(!), then this one is for you—even if you don’t think you like horror, you’re gonna devour this."
—Drew Broussard, LIT HUB

"Bury Your Gays, along with last year’s Camp Damascus, cements Tingle’s place as one of the best new novelists around, horror or otherwise."
