Are there any linear quantum gravity theories out there with respect to the wave function?
You can quantize the (Pauli-Fierz) free spin-2 field (which is the 1st order perturbation of the space-time metric) canonically or better yet with path integrals as normal linear QFT (just like electromagnetism in Minkowski spacetime). There's a (probably the best) chapter of Zee's book on QFT on this. The Pauli-Fierz action is deducted by Feynman in his GR book from symmetry considerations.
All mainstream quantum gravity theories (string theory, Wheeler-DeWitt, loop quantum gravity, perturbative quantization of spin-2 field in a classical background, etc.) are linear with respect to the wave function. Linearity (or superposition principle) is one of the basics axioms of quantum theory.
Maybe you're confusing fields with wave functions ?
Who are you referring to? The OP stated that he is talking about linearity with respect to wave functions. I assumed that by "wave functions" he means quantum states and not the gravitational fields. Dextercioby assumed the opposite.
I meant the OP. If so, the question seems to make more sense to me.
