      Some tidbits about meI turned down a scholarship to Miskatonic University because I heard of the high rate of incidents against the student population.I briefly worked for Omni Consumer Products in their Marketing Department Great benefits, nice cafeteria, sadly too prone to executive whim.Last year I stayed at the noted Mauna Pele resort in Hawaii The accommodations were impressive but my traveling companion disappeared soon after wanting to attend a pig roast.I ve slept with one minor porn star and with a guy who later became one.And I happen to have written some fanfic that inspired the memorable holodeck scene in Star Trek Hidden Frontiers episode Vigil

    1. I really enjoyed this collection Some of the stories were quite original while others were contemporary takes on the Thomas the Rhymer Tam Lin legends Holly Black s Coat of Stars was a standout how have I never read any Holly Black Laurie Marks How the Ocean Loved Margie was creepy and disturbing in a very good way, while Christopher Barzak s Isis in Darkness had a deliciously Bordertown feel to it And I see that he ll have a story in the upcoming Welcome to Bordertown book hooray The thing I lo [...]


    2. What I learned from this book editing as a profession is truly going straight to hell reek wreak You absolutely DO NOT reek havoc And I wish that were the only mistake the editor didn t catch.Anyway, the stories were also mostly pointless or dull or predictable, given the nature of the anthology I m starting to wonder if I m going to run into any good short stories this year.


    3. This is a fantastic collection of short stories, a little bit of a mix of mostly fantasy and urban fantasy and fairytale And each of them contain a gay or lesbian relationship, but all are done to varying degrees No two stories are similar.There were so many really good stories packed into this anthology, and it would be really hard to comment on them all, so I shall restrain myself to mentioning just a few favourites The Coat of Stars by Holly BlackRafael is a costume designer for stage product [...]


    4. Excellent collection of short stories all dealing with gay or lesbian characters and the realm of fairy This is a particularly apt combination, not only for the play on the term fairy but because of the association of gay as being outside boundaries, much as the faery world is The approaches to the topic were creative and varied, mostly dealing with modern day humans encountering strangeness in various ways I was particularly delighted by The Wand s Boy by Richard Bowes about a mortal world bord [...]


    5. Really, really enjoyed this anthology and not just because I m a contributor to it There are some great stories to be found in here, by an impressive list of writers including Holly Black, Melissa Scott, Lynne Jamneck, Christopher Barzak and othersA new edition will be released in a couple of months from Prime Books.


    6. Steve Berman is quickly becoming my go to guy for anthologies of short fiction This collection focuses on faerie fiction and runs between pure escapist fairy tale to romantic fantasy to romance to urban magic to dark fantasy to horror Some of the selections are better than others, of course, but they are all excellent contributions of contemporary fiction.


    7. There s a huge variety in quality among these stories I recommend the stories by Ruby deBrazier, Sarah Monette, Holly Black, Christopher Barzak, Delia Sherman, Sean Meriwether, Melissa Scott, and Joshua Lewis.


    8. 22 Stories Including Year of the Fox by Eugie Foster A Bird of Ice by Craig Laurance Gidney Isis in Darkness by Christopher Barzak Detox by Elspeth Potter The Kings of Oak and Holly by Kenneth D Woods How the Ocean Loved Margie by Laurie J Marks


    9. Collected short stories that weave elements of homosexuality into tales of enchantment There is little to shock within these pages, the inclusion of sexuality is in many cases extraneous.


    10. There are duds than diamonds to be found in this anthology I didn t even have expectations and came out disappointed One of the dishonorable mentions would be Charming, a Tale of True Love by Ruby de Brazier and Cassandra Clare First of all, wow What an interesting and unique title Sure leaves you wondering what s in store.Of course it turns out that that lazy and moronic title is quite fitting The story is predictable start to finish, and embarrassingly generic Actually, insultingly so It was [...]


    11. SlashReaders So in this case the back of the book really doesn t tell you much about what is inside it However, I suppose it can t be easy to write the back of a book for an anthology of short stories I don t normally enjoy reading short stories, mostly I ve decided because, they are short I prefer something longer, something I can sink into for long periods of time A world and characters let my mind revolve around for days or weeks in some cases.In this case, I found that my mind began to revol [...]


    12. It took me 6 years to finish reading this anthology literally I would start the book and soon thereafter abandon it, before trying again months later Bearing that in mind, there were a few good short stories The Coat of Stars, Ever So Much More Than Twenty, Mr Grimm s Fairy Tale, and a couple others The rest Not so much.I have to mention A Bird of Ice in particular While the premise of this story was interesting and at first seemed so promising, it was painful to read The gratuitous grammatical [...]


    13. A friend lent me this book, with a caution that not all of the stories were that good I d pass that same caution on to any potential readers, as well While there are some real gems A Bird of Ice, Charming, Three Letters from the Queen of Elfland, The Coat of Stars, How the Ocean Loved Margie, and Ever So Much More Than Twenty , some of the others fall short of being exceptional.With that said, I was pleasantly surprised to see how well some authors interwove the gay piece into the stories Other [...]


    14. A lot of fairy fae fiction tends to be very mysterious A lot of LGBT fiction tends to be very tragic This anthology has someone combined them both At first, I couldn t figure out if this really, really annoyed me, or if it was actually a good thing because I was curled into a ball, sobbing I still haven t quite figured it out.However, this anthology has a really large range of stories there s got to be something for everyone There s stories set in the modern world, in the fairy world, in the pas [...]


    15. I think this is an interesting collection of stories and I really enjoy the queer take on the fantastical I enjoyed ome of these stories very much and some of them left something to be desired Overall though, I really did like the collection.


    16. It s difficult rating a collection of stories by so many authors I would have awarded The Kings of Oak and Holly Kenneth D Woods and Ever so much than Twenty Joshua Lewis and The Coat of Stars Holly Black deserves .
