Bending the Landscape: Horror

Although the front flap copy clearly states that this is "Volume II: Horror" (following "Volume I: Science Fiction"), the editors state in their Introduction that, "This is the third volume in the Bending the Landscape series. For each--Fantasy, then Science Fiction, and now Horror--we asked a variety of writers, gay and straight, mainstream and genre, new and well established, to create original stories with gay or lesbian characters, set in a milieu or landscape bent slightly out of true." In this instance the editors would seem to either know more than the publishers or are being more straightforward (and I suspect that both are true more often than not), because a quick check reveals that "Fantasy" was published in 1997 and "Science Fiction" in 1998, so 2001's "Horror" would indeed be the third volume. Further research indicates that "Fantasy" was published by White Wolf, so perhaps in Overlook's eyes it doesn't count, and this, after "Science Fiction," really is only the second volume since Overlook published only two of the three. Or not. In any event, contributors to this tome include Kraig Blackwelder, L. Timmel Duchamp, Simon Sheppard, Cynthia Ward, Mark McLaughlin, Carrie Richerson, Ellen Klages, Holly Wade Matter, Gary Bowen, Brian A. Hopkins & James Van Pelt, Alexi Smart, A.J. Potter, Leslie What, Alexis Glynn Latner, Barbara Hambly, Kathleen O'Malley, Keith Hartman, and Mark W. Tiedemann. Black boards, 332 pages (including About the Editors and About the Authors), dust jacket illustration by J.K. Potter. Gently bumped corners/spine ends, small ink scribble to rear end paper, in lightly scuffed price-clipped dust jacket w/impressions, mild edgewear.
