Praise For Wilde Stories 2013: The Year's Best Gay Speculative Fiction (Wilde Stories: Year's Best Gay Speculative Fiction)…
"The various authors anthologized here write on different subjects ranging from a gay, humanoid cephalopod couple to a man tormented by the dead after his lover's suicide. Despite the disparities, the collection comes together as a remarkably coherent whole, and none of the characters' queer identities outweigh the telling of the tales....An impressive collection brimming with originality."--Kirkus Reviews
