    1. There are seven prose stories here and one brief graphic one after a Neil Gaiman s idea The prose stories are all related to lesbian issues I remember having bought this book because the idea of combining gay issues and science fiction looked attractive then But the enterprise, in this collection of stories, fails miserably I only liked two stories Instinct 3 stars , and the one by Gaiman Bryan Talbot the artist 2 stars The other tales are, I believe, hard to redeem When this happens in an antho [...]


    2. disappointing I think one story was trans phobic, treating a everyone is queer so no one is queer future world as facist and community erasing Which is definitely a possibility, but I think can also be damaging for queer liberation struggles overall, it was not what I hoped But I think there are plans for another, so I ll keep my fingers crossed that the next one is developed.


    3. Disappointed in this one I wanted story than was offered in this anthology I enjoyed the Goto and Pollack stories, but found the other pieces less solid and prone to being remarkably distopian, not always for any particularly good reason It s always hard to appeal to a broader audience with this short of an anthology, though, and I ll hope for better things with the next round.


    4. A quirky little volume A few great stories, Goto s, Dorsey s, and Pollack s particularly Parks story smacks of trans and bi phobia, unfortunately Overall, I wish this volume had enjoyed a stronger editing hand But it was enjoyable to glimpse a few queer futures.


    5. I was really looking forward to this anthology series, but it was mostly dull There were some very interesting ideas that just didn t flourish, not to mention yet stories of depressing queer life and unhappy endings Instinct by Joy Parks had some interesting commentary on a future where queerness is widely the norm, until it took a trans phobic turn that really soured the story I think the stand outs were the graphic From Homogenous to Honey by Neil Geiman and Bryan Talbot, The Sleep Clinic for [...]


    6. A good collection of stories and one piece of graphic fiction by a variety of authors, all queer visions of the future for LGBTs As with all good science fiction, each story reflects on a different aspect of gay or lesbian society and issues such as identity by differentiation from the norm , self esteem and how a sense of self is refracted through the lens of sexuality Thought provoking and interesting.


    7. This is a fantastic collection of stories dealing with LGBTQ issues of the future Some were odd, and others not so much But I have to say, my all time fav of the bunch was the last one It s the perfect story to help create an understanding of acceptance by taking things slightly out of context Instead of man and woman we have red and green Beautiful story for sure


    8. A mediocre collection There were only two stories that stood out to me as particularly good Hiromi Goto s The Sleep Clinic for Troubled Souls and Rachel Pollack s The Beatrix Gates The ten stories they selected were widely varied, which was interesting, but I also wanted authors.


    9. Dull and disappointing for the most part Poorly structured, poorly explained and just plain unlike able stories The exception being the last two stories which are genuinely good and interesting a shame only Pollack and Goto could live up to the promise of the title.


    10. ok, so i ve read much better queer and or feminist science fiction honestly, there are so many good anthologies out there, i m not sure i can recommend this one there are a couple interesting stories if you hunt for them.


    11. Honestly only a few of the stories jumped out to me in this Queer Sci fi anthology but I love sci fi so much I couldn t help but to love it
