Wilde Stories 2009: The Year's Best Gay Speculative Fiction
The latest edition of Wilde Stories, once more edited by Steve Berman, promises readers a range of imaginative gay-themed fiction culled from the prior year. These are tales that range from the chilling (Lee Thomas' "I'm Your Violence") to the surreal (Sven Davisson's "Dim Star Descried") to the fantastical ("Firooz and His Brother" by Alex Jeffers). Many of the authors included have won awards for their fiction, and their stories seek to press new boundaries of loneliness, loss and love, between men and monster (and those men who happen to be monsters).
