A fine addition to this series 16 Mar. 2015
By Wulfstan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
The latest installment in this series (begun in 2008) contains fourteen selections first published during the calendar year 2013, either in print or online. The only common thread among all the stories is that at least one character is a gay male; otherwise the stories fall all over the speculative fiction map: four are horror, several more straddle the line between horror and dark fantasy, most seem set in some version of our world (two are clearly set on another world), one is a historical fantasy, and one is steampunk. Both female and male writers are represented.

My personal favorites include “Caress” by Eli Easton and “The Water that Falls on You from Nowhere” by John Chu, both of which also include romantic elements. They are also the most obviously fantastical: Easton's touching story demonstrates that even a man with a mechanical heart may love, and the title of Chu's story refers to the results of telling a lie. Readers who enjoy horror or dark fantasy will find many excellent stories to choose from: especially chilling examples include “Grindr,” by Clayton Littlewood, “How to Dress an American Table” by J. E. Robinson, and “In the Brokenness of Summertime” by T. W. Clinger; vampires (“Seven Lovers and the Sea” by Damon Shaw) and zombies (“The Revenge of Oscar Wilde,” by Sean Eads) also make appearances, as do ghosts (“The Ghosts of Emerhad” by Nghi Vo).

Overall the quality of the anthology is excellent; my only complaint is that some of the stories--while quite chilling--do not appear to contain obvious speculative elements, so their inclusion in this volume mystifies me.
