Magic Casements by Julie Bozza

Oscar Wilde is touring North America lecturing on aesthetics—so why wouldn’t the Poet of Beauty and Truth be much on his mind?

Reviews:Bryn Hammond on Goodreads wrote:

You never knew what’s on the bill next in this wide range of tales. I won’t name my faves because I experienced them as a sequence where each felt new and interesting.

In all of them, people living their queer lives, often in tension with the tropes, pushing stories in different directions. This did add up to an interrogation of the genre, which co-existed with the genre homage. A bunch of well-constructed stories that deconstruct – and re-construct – the Western!

LGBTQ+ representation is across the spectrum. Lesbians do very well, just saying.

Hugely enjoyable.
