From a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood set in war-torn 1870s Mexico featuring a transgender soldier, to an asexual girl discovering her identity amid the 1970s roller-disco scene, this collection of short stories crosses cultures and time periods to shed light on a world where queer figures live, love and shape the world round them.

Very solid contributors list in this collection, with a solid collection of stories. However, while there's some range in experiences, the majority of them are American and European centered, and for a collection with "Throughout the Ages" in the subtitle, it contains a significant quantity of 20th century stories, which seems a bit at odds with its purpose.

Amazing bite sized stories that run the gamut from fluffy and funny to magical and mysterious. Also, a perfect choice if you love reading fanfiction!

@LPL_KimberlyL recommended this awesome short story collection to me, and it was a hit! The premise of writing fairy-tale-esque stories from a young queer and/or trans* perspective is really interesting, and I loved all of the different directions that the authors took.

This fantastic collection of short stories is very diverse with amazing writing. Characters are not just lesbian and gay, but bi, trans, genderqueer, and even gloriously unashamedly asexual. Like every short story collection, it had a few stories I didn't connect with as much, but overall, this is an outstanding addition to the canon of LGBTQ+ literature for young people. (The emphasis on #ownvoices authors really helps this particular anthology to shine out above the rest.)

Recommended strongly, especially for fans of historical fiction featuring gender and sexual minorities, like The Gentleman's Guide to Vice & Virtue or Silhouette of a Sparrow.

Such a strong short story compilation! Finding historical fiction featuring queer characters (and written by queer authors!) is tough to find, so I love that this exists and that it is so well put together. You also get some fantasy elements in a few of the stories. Read these!
