  1. Gerhard

    This is the first Wilde Stories collection I have read, sub titled The Year s Best Gay Speculative Fiction There are only two kind of SF stories here, both are about AI, with the bulk being fantasy and or horror Same have gay content than others No spaceships, astronauts or even aliens Unless you count the weird bloke on the block as an alien.Editor Steve Berman definitely needs to include a brief boilerplate explanation in each year s edition to remind regular readers, and inform new ones like [...]

  2. Hilcia

    Last year I loved the Wilde Stories 2011 anthology, so picking up Wilde Stories 2012 The Year s Best Gay Speculative Fiction edited by Steve Berman was a no brainer for me In this year s edition, I again found excellent creative speculative fiction by favorite authors plus new to me authors whose works I m going to explore in the future The anthology begins with an excellent introduction by Berman, followed by fifteen stories and showcasing the wide range and variety he discovered in gay specula [...]

  3. Randal

    Just delightful It s often hard to review a collection of stories by a variety of authors But in this case, diversity truly is its strength A couple made me laugh out loud and at least one made me shudder with horror I m going to check out the previous years collections.

  4. John

    Solid anthology of gay speculative fiction Mostly specifically gay male, not much for lesbian, trans, ace, etc A good range of atmospheres grounded, comic, mundane, fantastic, clear, obscure, sweet, cheerful, spooky, erotic, sad Looking forward to reading the other editions Favorites Made me happy The Arab s Prayer a sweet story of love between a muslim and a secular jew in future Tel Aviv.Color Zap Pleasantville on Planet GayThe Peacock Love with a spambotFilling up the Void Murder mystery and [...]

  5. Alexis Ames

    Some real gems in here The Arab s Prayer and Pinion especially, but the surprise Riverside story from Ellen Kushner The Duke of Riverside took the cake I ve so missed Alec and Richard

  6. Clay Brown

    Wilde Stories like its namesake is out there, vivid and not afraid of speaking or living the Love That Dare Not Speak Its Name.In this case Gay Speculative Fiction, stories gathered by Editor Steve Berman of these Horror, Fantasy and Science Fiction stories I started reading Mr Berman s Anthology of gay things that go bump in the night or day with the 2010 edition, and was impressed by its literary intelligence.Speculative Fiction is very hard to do well, even without the gay part So finding eno [...]

  7. Elizabeth

    When I cracked the spine on this book I was not really sure what to expect as I have realized that the term and category of speculative fiction can mean vastly different things to different people By the end of the the delightful and playful introduction preface by the editor Steve Berman I no longer cared what the term meant, I was simply convinced I was indeed in good hands for an enjoyable selection of writing The stories are an excellent blend of strange, scary, moving, and playful I think s [...]

  8. Kate O'Hanlon

    The Hit to Miss ratio of this anthology continues to be unusually high.Standouts here are The House by the Park by Lee Thomas, which contrasts a cosy domesticity with a creeping suburban nightmare that should be of interest to anyone who enjoyed Thomas s Lambda winning novel, The German, and The Duke of Riverside by Ellen Kushner, which gives some back story sure to please Riverside fans.Special mention too to The Peacock , a love story between a man and a spambot that is is both laugh out loud [...]

  9. Tyrannosaurus regina

    I m used to short story anthologies being uneven than this the quality of this collection is overall very high, and the variety of stories is remarkable as well Well worth the read.

  10. Mina MacLeod

    Very good anthology, containing a little something for everyone Also, there was a surprise trip back to Ellen Kushner s Riverside universe More Richard Alec is ALWAYS good.
