The eleventh and final volume in the series that offered readers the best gay-themed stories of the strange, uncanny, and fantastical. Work by such authors as Richard Bowes, Sam J. Miller, Sean Eads, and John Chu.
Multifaceted and inclusive ... memorable from cover to cover ... This edition of the anthology is much more representative of the diversity in the LGBT community than in 2008, the year Wilde Stories first saw publication ... a fine read, with every story a highlight. Berman’s choices are usually excellent, and the book displays the quality that readers have come to expect from Lethe Press. The annual collection will be missed.
Assembles several excellent stories, and they’re ones you are not likely to otherwise find together in a year’s best volume ... Assembling a volume along the lines of a sexual orientation, instead of a subgenre-specific axis, makes for unexpected contrasts and illuminating revelations (one of which, for some readers, will be the fact that great gay fiction is neither penned solely by gay men nor enjoyable only by gay male readers) ... This isn’t to say that every choice in Wilde Stories is an unqualified success ... a worthwhile volume for anyone who enjoys literary speculative fiction.
