The rules are simple enough. Write a complete story—either sci fi, fantasy, or paranormal. Make sure it has LGBT characters and/or an LGBT vibe. And do it all with just 300 words.

The stories in this volume run the gamut, from platypus shifters to alien slug monsters, from carnival horror stories to haunting stories of ships with souls. There are little jokes, big surprises

I often feel very self-serving when I talk about anthologies in which I have a story included. I generally discuss them without mentioning my story at all. In this particular case, not including myself there are over a hundred other authors, so I'm feeling very little shame in talking about this anthology.

The blurb really covers the structure, so here it is: The rules are simple enough. Write a complete story—either sci fi, fantasy, or paranormal. Make sure it has LGBT characters and/or an LGBT

This book is a mix, as many anthologies are. From hot stuff to sweet romance to chilling horror, the writers delve into the LGBTQ experience via science fiction and fantasy.

In the interests of full disclosure, I have a story in this anthology. But I had not read most of the other stories until now. There is much that's good in here. Give it a try!

If you want a quick five minute read before bed or whilst waiting for an appointment than this book is full of them and all of them are either sci fi, fantasy, or paranormal with an LGBT vibe.
I am probably biased as I have a small story in this book but I will admit to the others being of a far better quality than my poor effort and well worth every penny you pay for it.

Not gonna lie, I need the anthology for every one of these contests ever.

No star rating because I didn't finish it. This book is *long* and has SO MANY stories in it. I feel like they weren't really curated very well? This was their first ever contest so I imagine the books get better as time goes, but this one just seemed like you had to slog through a lot of meh to get to some of the good pieces. I don't really have the patience to finish it. ...more
