Wilde Stories 2016: The Year's Best Gay Speculative Fiction

by Steve Berman

Type: speculative fiction

Edited by Steve Berman.

Reality and memory; imagination and oblivion. Somewhere between these signposts can be found the events of Wilde Stories 2016: a future world has forbidden the songs of dancefloor divas but on one night the show returns as a cautionary exhibition; high school outcasts create a fictional scapegoat and then his body is found; and let us not forget that colonial Mars needs Oscar Wilde, but then, who doesn't?
