All stories put together make an average 3 stars rating but 4 of them are outstanding :

Et Tu, Fishies? by J.L. Merrow
Great 1st POV voice, sweet and funny story with a hint of absurdist humour.

Zones by Elyan Smith
Strengthened me in my belief that Elyan Smith is very talented and can paint the most wonderful portraits. His touch is delicate and s

I will rate/review as I go, but I had to start today with a very special story.
My dear friend Lucy sent me this quote from the book and I knew I had to move it up my TBR pile and read this particular story ASAP.

Sollicito by Charlie Cochrane:
“It’s not as simple for us. You need to carry both recessive genes and the correct markers on other chromosomes to become a were-sloth. See, I told you my problems are worse than yours, and when you stop laughing you might understand.”

In a word, this book is adorable. I enjoy anthologies because I get to “meet” some authors new to me and the stories are usually short-ish, so I can read one or two between other longer books. So it takes me a while to finish an anthology. This one, once I started it, I read them all. Liked nearly all of them as well, which usually doesn’t happen in an anthology. I had some clear favorites, though I considered them all well written and interesting. Some are fun
A very diverse collection of stories, but there wasn't one I didn't enjoy. I often find short stories frustrating, sometimes they feel too short, or too rushed, trying to cram in too much. These stories were just right.
I have to admit I was a little nervous about reviewing this anthology this week because I know that I'll get to meet all the contributors face to face this weekend. I have this fear that one day I shall meet an author and get punched in the nose for writing a bad review! Fortunately there will be no punching this weekend (well not as a result of this review anyway) because this anthology was absolutely marvellous.

Often when I read anthologies there's always one or two stories which miss the mark
Rating: 4.5 stars

Lashing: British slang for lots or large amounts. In celebration of 2012 Olympics, the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, and the 3rd Annual UK GLBTQ Fiction Meet, a lashing of authors from all over the Globe put forth an GLBTQ anthology of stories that highlight everything that makes Britain (and mainland Europe) a great place for GLBTQ people to love and live.

Here is a list of stories and authors in the order they appear:
• Post Mortem by Jordan Castillo Price
• Dressing Down by Clare Lo
Lillian Francis
My contribution to this anthology is titled Waiting for a Spark.

Naturally since I'm in this I won't be rating it.

With seventeen authors, ranging from my most auto-buy of auto-buys to completely new to me, I read this anthology with a happy smile on my face. Covering a wide range of LGBT and without the constraints of **heat! Give us more heat!**, the UK MAT authors have provided a stunning display of talent.

A mini review of each story will make this post huge, so take it as given that I enjoyed each story, and the ones I mention here had something special, even considering the standard set by Jordan Ca

Recommended to Suze by: JMS Books december free book
A wide range of short stories, all delivering a nice quick read. The stories range from funny to poignant, contemporary to historical, include boys, girls, shifters, stories of reminising, being transgender, young and older lovers.
Unusually in a large grouping of stories there were none I didn't like, and the average rating came out as 3.6. A book I'll definitely dive into again when I need a quick story to fill 20 mins.
My contribution to this is called Lost in London. No, I'm not British. :-) But I'm so looking forward to attending the Meet in Brighton and seeing old friends and meeting new. My Great-Grandmother was born in Scotland, so I might merit honourary Brit status.

A varied mix of stories in this one. Some were more to my taste than others, but all will be appreciated by the majority of interested readers. M/m stories predominate, but there are also two f/f stories and two about trans* characters. Well worth picking up.
Not really my cup of tea but interesting none the less. I can honestly say that I read it through as I received it for free through Goodreads First Reads. The stories were diverse and entertaining.

Another cracking selection of stories -and great fun to read. Something for everyone.
Entertaining, but uneven in quality.

English through and through, Josephine Myles is addicted to tea and busy cultivating a reputation for eccentricity. She writes gay erotica and romance, but finds the erotica keeps cuddling up to the romance, and the romance keeps corrupting the erotica. She blames her rebellious muse but he never listens to her anyway, no matter how much she threatens him with a big stick. She's beginning to suspe ...more
