New in the bookstore this week is the latest in the Wilde Stories anthologies, which are best of the year collections of speculative fiction about gay men. This year’s edition contains stories by people like Rick Bowes, Chris Barzack and Ellen Kushner (yes, it is a Riverside story). As ever, the book is edited by Steve Berman. You can buy Wilde Stories 2012 here.
And while we are on the subject, Lethe Press have also sent me two new books in the Astreiant series. Point of Hopes is the final novel co-authored by Melissa Scott and her late partner, Lisa A. Barnett. Point of Knives is a novella by Scott which takes place between the events of Point of Dreams and Point of Hopes.
