Wilde Stories 2016 (anthology)

From Tardis Wiki, the free Doctor Who reference

Wilde Stories 2016, sometimes referred to with a subtitle as Wilde Stories 2016: The Year's Best Gay Speculative Fiction, was a 2016 anthology published by Lethe Press.

While fourteen out of the fifteen short stories have zero connection to Doctor Who at all, one story does. The story in question is a prose adaptation of the audio story Imaginary Boys, first aired on BBC Radio 4.

Publisher's summary[[edit]]

Reality and memory; imagination and oblivion. Somewhere between these signposts can be found the events of Wilde Stories 2016: a future world has forbidden the songs of dancefloor divas but on one night the show returns as a cautionary exhibition; high school outcasts create a fictional scapegoat and and then his body is found; and let us not forget that colonial Mars needs Oscar Wilde, but then, who doesn't?
