Edited by Steve Berman.
The latest edition of Wilde Stories, once more edited by Steve Berman, promises readers a range of imaginative gay-themed fiction culled from the prior year. These are tales that range from the chilling (Lee Thomas' "I'm Your Violence") to the surreal (Sven Davisson's "Dim Star Descried") to the fantastical ("Firooz and His Brother" by Alex Jeffers). Many of the authors included have won awards for their fiction, and their stories seek to press new boundaries of loneliness, loss and love, between men and monster (and those men who happen to be monsters).
Steve Berman has been writing stories both queer and strange for many years. He has had more than 80 articles and short stories sold and his work has appeared in the fantasy anthologies The Faery Reel and The Coyote Road. Mr. Berman has also edited the book So Fey: Queer Faery Fiction. He once worked as a professional bookbuyer to expand his personal library and he now lives in southern New Jersey surrounded by many old and odd books.
