Maybe 90's fantasy is not my thing... I'll need to look into that later.

My favourite stories were:
"I am Infinite, I Contain Multitudes", by Douglas Clegg; "The Fall of the Kings" by Ellen Kushner and Delia Sherman (these happened to be the two of the gay-themed ones); "The Sin of Elijah" by Steve Stern and "Spanky'
