Edited by Steve Berman.
Prepare to skew your view of the world: where jinn in the clouds of a future Tel Aviv aren’t spirits but powerful computer programs; where a suburban garden hides unrecognizable bones; to a colony planet that outlaws color; or the night when a lonely lab tech finds a spambot flirting with him. The latest volume in the acclaimed Wilde Stories series has tales of hitchhikers on the run, dragons in the sky, swordsmen drawing their blades. These are stories fantastic and strange, otherworldly and eerie, but all feature gay men struggling with memories or lovers or simply the vicissitudes of life no matter how wild the world might be.
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.
