Hauntings and Others is a slash multifandom anthology.

From an ad in On the Double: "Short story collection for Halloween. Ghosts, vampires and other denizens of the night are featured players in these stories. The atmosphere may or may not be eeirie (sic), but any terror is purely of the psychological variety -- i.e. no slashers [1] running loose, people coming out of closets [2] dressed in hockey masks!")

An age statement was required for purchase.

Reactions and Reviews

Another zine I enjoyed was Hauntings & Others: Basically, a good romantic read of Vampires & such... only a few B/D stories, but I love Tris/Alex, and the sequel to Tyger Tyger was in there... LOVED it! Also enjoyed the original fiction. (Again, Vampires) Nothing gory... completely romantic. [3]
