This is a fascinating collection of young LGBTQIA+ writing, and if that alphabet of identifications is unfamiliar or daunting you really should read these short stories! The authors are young and talented and thoroughly immersed in the evolving queer scene in Australia but what is most interesting is their individual strategies to interpret their own sensibility and identification to the reader for whom the very existence of such a range of identities is novel. Adrik Kemp's superhero tale where an alphabet of powers parallel the alphabet of sexualities is particularly enjoyable.

Like any anthology it’s pot luck. While some capture the time summer Mardi Gras the marriage equality referendum they seem only two “Pink Stripe, White Stripe” and the “Brightening Glance” have a charm and bathos that remains It is their rendition of the lightning flash that seals the reader to the sense of self with place , people and universal theme
