    1 thought on “The Future is Queer: A Science Fiction Anthology

    1. There are seven prose stories here and one brief graphic one (after a Neil Gaiman’s idea). The prose stories are all related to lesbian issues. I remember having bought this book because the idea of combining gay issues and science fiction looked attractive then. But the enterprise, in this collection of stories, fails miserably. I only liked two stories: “Instinct” (3 stars), and the one by Gaiman / Bryan Talbot (the artist) (2 stars). The other tales are, I believe, hard to redeem. When [...]

    2. disappointing. I think one story was trans-phobic, treating a "everyone is queer so no one is queer" future world as facist and community-erasing. Which is definitely a possibility, but I think can also be damaging for queer liberation struggles. overall, it was not what I hoped. But I think there are plans for another, so I'll keep my fingers crossed that the next one is more developed.

    3. Disappointed in this one - I wanted more 'story' than was offered in this anthology. I enjoyed the Goto and Pollack stories, but found the other pieces less solid and prone to being remarkably distopian, not always for any particularly good reason. It's always hard to appeal to a broader audience with this short of an anthology, though, and I'll hope for better things with the next round.

    4. A quirky little volume. A few great stories, Goto's, Dorsey's, and Pollack's particularly. Parks' story smacks of trans- and bi-phobia, unfortunately. Overall, I wish this volume had enjoyed a stronger editing hand. But it was enjoyable to glimpse a few queer futures.

    5. I was really looking forward to this anthology series, but it was mostly dull. There were some very interesting ideas that just didn't flourish, not to mention yet more stories of depressing queer life and unhappy endings. 'Instinct' by Joy Parks had some interesting commentary on a future where queerness is widely the norm, until it took a trans-phobic turn that really soured the story. I think the stand outs were the graphic 'From Homogenous to Honey' by Neil Geiman and Bryan Talbot, 'The Slee [...]

    6. A good collection of stories and one piece of graphic fiction by a variety of authors, all queer visions of the future for LGBTs. As with all good science fiction, each story reflects on a different aspect of gay or lesbian society and issues such as identity by differentiation from the 'norm', self esteem and how a sense of self is refracted through the lens of sexuality. Thought provoking and interesting.

    7. This is a fantastic collection of stories dealing with LGBTQ issues of the future. Some were odd, and others not so much. But I have to say, my all time fav of the bunch was the last one. It's the perfect story to help create an understanding of acceptance by taking things slightly out of context. Instead of man and woman we have red and green. Beautiful story for sure!

    8. A mediocre collection. There were only two stories that stood out to me as particularly good: Hiromi Goto's "The Sleep Clinic for Troubled Souls" and Rachel Pollack's "The Beatrix Gates." The ten stories they selected *were* widely varied, which was interesting, but I also wanted more authors.

    9. Dull and disappointing for the most part. Poorly structured, poorly explained and just plain unlike able stories. The exception being the last two stories which are genuinely good and interesting. a shame only Pollack and Goto could live up to the promise of the title.

    10. ok, so i've read much better queer and/or feminist science fiction. honestly, there are so many good anthologies out there, i'm not sure i can recommend this one. there are a couple interesting stories if you hunt for them.

    11. Honestly only a few of the stories jumped out to me in this Queer Sci-fi anthology but I love sci-fi so much I couldn't help but to love it!
