Another solid collection of tales from editor Steve Berman and various authors, some of whom were familiar to me and some not. The collection is bookended by a pair of contemporary tales that upend standard gay tropes: a gay man who reverses his pilgrimage to San Francisco to return to where he grew up, and a gay couple whose chief worry at the exotic tropical wedding of a female friend is the premature child their surrogate mother is bringing into the world. In between are a number of tales that are less contemporary: the subject matter seems more nostalgic. In each, however, execution is strong. Among the best is a fantastic and elusive tale of three Hollywood screenwriters (one gay) and how their own lives become somewhat stranger and unfamiliar to them than the odd spectral late night TV program for which they write just before the 1960s turns everything on its head. If the collection lacks anything, it is a young gay ripped-from-the-headlines voice; this lack made the collection leisurely rather than urgent, but overall the diverse perspectives and strong voices made the reading a pleasure.
