The Queer Wolf collection kicks off with “Wolf Strap” by Naomi Clark. Ayla gave up a lot to be a lesbian, like her entire family, who raised her to believe her role was to get married and pop out a lot more werewolves for the good of the species. But when a child, a member of her family pack, is killed she and her partner Shannon head back to her childhood home. Its clear that things have changed since she left, but how much have they changed in this city where the human and wolves used to live ...more

WOLF STRAP by Naomi Clark (F/F): Ayla is a female werewolf in a world where shifters are respectable member of society, but if you are homosexual it's better if you still stay in the closet. And so Ayla left home at 17 years old, finding her way in the big bad world alone, without the safe shelter of a pack. Nine years later, she has a partner, Shannon, and a good life, but an old friend calls her back at home for the funeral of her cousin, a 15 years old boy killed in a bashing against his race ...more

This anthology is a collection of GBLT werewolf stories (three are f/f and the rest m/m). It caught my eye at first because I thought it sounded a bit different and, as you may know, I'm trying to expand my m/m reading to include some paranormal stories, so this seemed like a good intro to the genre. I fully admit that 'shifter' stories have never been something I've enjoyed particularly in the past, but I was willing to put aside my hang ups and give this one a go. I was also attracted by the f ...more
The Review:

Honesty from the outset and the standard line for anthologies (I told you it would be. *g*)~

I have a love/hate relationship with anthologies. Love because I really enjoy the diversity of voices and styles contained within a single volume and hate because inevitably with so many stories there will be a couple I'm unable to connect with. It is always disappointing when that happens because it can colour your view of the work as a whole and perhaps even the stories which come after.

This is a fun read. There aren't a lot of sources about gay and lesbian werewolves, which is what makes this one interesting.

However, there are way too many typos - ugh!! As with any edited collection, there are some good stories, and some mediocre.

Still, if you like gay horror and want something out of the ordinary, I recommend reading this one!

Mostly enjoyable anthology of gay werewolf stories. The quality was uneven -- a couple of the stories are more fan fiction than professional works -- but a handful of tales stand out, including "Shy Hunter" by Ginn Hale and "Wrong Turn" by Stephen Osborne.
I really enjoyed some of the stories, but there were just too many duds to rate this higher than 2 stars. I think the best stories were Ginn Hales's Shy Hunter, Cari Z's New Beginnings and Michael Itig's Wolf Lover

Yes, that's right. Gay werewolf stories. 17 of them. I was sold before I even got past that one phrase. Now if only I could get CCR's "Bad Moon Rising" out of my head.

Since there are 17 stories here, I'm not going to do a rundown of each one. That kind of review would take a week to write and all night to read. So instead you get my thoughts on the collection as a whole.

Like any anthology, some of the stories appealed more than others, but almost all of them had surprising depth, and I wished se

Wolf Strap, by Naomi Clark: 4.5 stars
First F/F story for me. First FF sex scene. First female werewolf too. Harsh heartbreaking start to the story with strong feelings and violence. Interesting twist on werewolf culture.

Wolf Sing, by Laramie Dean: 4 stars
Very young impetuous teenagers on the edge of becoming adults. One MC is "Breed" (they call themselves instead of werewolf) and one is witchlike (he doesn't know what to call himself). They feel the spark of connection between them.

Well, this book is a collection of short stories dealing with the topics of werewolves and queer identities (mostly homosexual however).
The intro by that professor is very interesting but the rest of the stories... well it's mixed. However it is pretty obvious that the authors usually revert to the default white and only truly focus on werewolf and sexual orientation, leaving most other elements of ones identity out. Also the concept of beauty seems to be pretty in synch with that of the all Am

Most of the stories in this collection were okay; only a few of them stood out. Wolf Strap by Naomi Clark, Shy Hunter by Ginn Hale, Family Matters by Moondancer Drake, Wrong Turn by Stephen Osborne, and Wolf Lover by Michael Itig were the better stories in the collection. Some of the others seemed to be more like snippets taken out of existing stories or didn't make much sense to me.
