Then Will The Great Ocean Wash Deep Above

Bending the Landscape: Original Gay and Lesbian Horror Writing - Nicola Griffith, Stephen Pagel, J.K. Potter, Kraig Blackwelder, Carrie Richerson, Ellen Klages, Gary Bowen, Brian A. Hopkins, James Van Pelt, Leslie What, Alexis Glynn Latner, Barbara Hambly, Keith Hartman, Mark W. Tiedemann, Kathleen O'Malley, Holly Wade Matter, Alexi S The final and by far the most uneven and disappointing volume in the 'Bending the Landscape' series. Few of the stories featured here rise above mediocrity and a couple are downright dreadful-so amateurish and so poorly structured that I'd hardly expect them to pass a college creative writing class much less be selected for publication in a major anthology. Only L. Timml Duchamp's evocative 'Explanations Are Clear', Simon Sheppard's dry and witty jeux d'esprit 'What Are You Afraid Of?' and Holly Wade Matter's wrenching, beautifully imagined 'Memorabilia' really stand out. A rather sad end for an intriguing and important series.
