About the Author:

Steve Berman has long been fascinated with the fantastical. With over 80 published short stories and articles--many of which combine queer elements and the weird--he strives to entertain. A three-time nominee for a Gaylactic Spectrum Award, he is the author of the ghost novel Vintage, a finalist for the Andre Norton Award.

Review:

Explores both meanings of the word fairy, using the age-old themes of folklore to tell stories relevant to gay and lesbian life today... The 22 authors in this book have taken the threads of old folk tales and woven them into modern adult fairy stories about men who love men, women who love women, and mortals who love creatures of magic. The stories range from light to dark, whimsical to disturbing, introspective to erotic. Berman has mixed tales by talented newcomers with those by long-established, award-winning authors. A few stories are set in fairyland, or take us back in history, but most of the tales unfold in towns, cities, and suburbs much like our own, in places where fairy magic casts its glow on modern life. These are stories for all readers who have ever loved or desired what they've been told that they must not--whether that's men, or women, or stories of fairies long after childhood is done. --------Terri Windling, co-editor of The Faery Reel

Something more than a collection of short stories. Perhaps it's the connection with the faeries of folklore that causes this particular anthology to take on a little more depth, a little more meaning, a little more richness than are apparent at first glance.... Berman deserves congratulations, and if he wants to do another volume, it will find a ready audience here. --Green Man Review

So Fey is recommended for most collections, especially those where short stories and fantasy circulate well. --GLBT-Roundtable of the American Library Association
