Wilde Stories 2018

Steve Berman et al.

The final volume in the series that offers readers the best gay-themed stories of the strange, uncanny, and fantastical is out! In these pages are work by such acclaimed spec fic authors as Richard Bowes, Sam J. Miller, Sean Eads, and John Chu. Turn a page and walk the halls of a library shelved with every book never completed by authors before they passed away, a fish grants a young man wishes without ever explaining their true cost, ghosts relive their erotic past, Captain Hook and the Greek god Pan finally meet, and even Oscar Wilde himself makes an appearance in this anthology by Lambda Literary Award-winning editor Steve Berman.

“…impressive selections that blend clever premises with mostly subdued queer desires…Berman’s diverse selections and their sensitive portrayals of gay men in science fiction and fantasy furnishes ample evidence that his series will be missed.” – Publishers Weekly
