Wilde Stories 2016: The Year's Best Gay Speculative Fiction

Length: 309 pages4 hours


Reality and memory; imagination and oblivion. Somewhere between these signposts can be found the events in the 15 stories of Wilde Stories 2016: a future world has forbidden the songs of dancefloor divas but on one night the show returns as a cautionary exhibition; high school outcasts create a fictional scapegoat and then his body is found; and let us not forget that colonial Mars needs Oscar Wilde, but then, who doesn't?

"Many troubled characters in these stories face self-hatred, homophobic parents, and defeatism, but they rise above with inspiring determination to love whomever they choose; each story excels as speculative fiction as well." - Publishers Weekly, starred review
