Editorial Reviews


Best Gay Stories 2008 is just that: the best gay stories of the previous year. The twenty stories and essays here run the gay literary gamut, and include short works by Jameson Currier, Greg Herren, David Levithan, Jeff Mann, Ethan Mordden and Aaron Shurin, just to name a few. --Jesse Monteagudo,

Some of the 20 contributors boast an accomplished body of work, among them novelists Ethan Mordden and Paul Russell, editor and mystery novelist Greg Herren, young adult novelist and editor David Levithan, poet and essayist Aaron Shurin, critic and short story writer Jameson Currier, speculative fiction author Richard Bowes, and essayist and short story writer Jeff Mann; their work doesn't disappoint. It's the work of relatively new voices, however, that's most welcome anthologies like this are valuable for introducing newer writers to queer readers who relish good writing. Two of the best are playwright Charles Rice-Gonzalez's ''Bronx Boyz in Poe Cottage,'' a poignant short story about the educational gulf that separates two Latino boyhood friends, and poet Billy Merrell's ''My Boyfriend Refuses to Speak in Iambic Pentameter,'' a short play about two young men fumbling for love. --Richard Labonte, Book Marks

These stories, like the experiences they describe, linger in the mind long after they have been read. The authors include some of the most respected names in the field, magicians of the printed word. This is an outstanding anthology. --Rainbow Reviews

Format: Kindle Edition
This started out with a bit of interest but that was quickly lost. Most of these read like some forgotten class assignment, you remember? Those stories and books we read because it was good for us? Very little to interest me in any of these, though.
