Okay, first off, get over the name. This book has nothing to do with Oscar Wilde. It is instead a collection of some of the best gay speculative fiction (horror, sci-fi, fantasy) of the year. The stories cover a wide range of ideas, including the obligatory zombie apocalypse tale. As in past volumes of this series, some of the stories are amazing, and some are simply entertaining. In particular, Liard Barron’s story, “Mysterium Tremendum,” is the finest piece of horror I’ve read in a while, and gives H.P. Lovecraft a run for his money. This book is a welcome read for anyone who loves speculative fiction. Lethe Press (lethepressbooks.com). —Review: Angel Curtis
