Product description

Product Description

Even though this year marks 400 years of Shakespeare’s death, his works continue to inspire us today, to open our eyes to the beauty of language and theatre and to awaken in us the passion for life and love.

We’re celebrating the Bard’s legacy with this collection of 12 stories based on his works and the way they are often woven into our lives. The twist is that all stories are MM. There are modern retellings of some plays, interpretations of others and one of the sonnets, and delightful referencing of anything Shakespeare.

There is gentle YA romance next to hot sexy stories and all kinds of relationships – first love, May/December, interracial, second chances, happy endings and even a tragic one.

We’re travelling from Ancient Rome through Renaissance England to modern day UK, Venice Beach and other places in USA, Vancouver and Havana.

There’s fun, drama, tears, angst, joy and, above all, lots of true love.

And as all the world’s a stage we do hope that one day very soon all the world will be a place for everybody to love whomever they want to love and feel safe.

All proceeds of this collection go to the It Gets Better Project. By reading this book you become part of the hope for a better future of the LGBT youth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shakespeare and LGBT! Awesome! 15 August 2016
By DiverseReader - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This Anthology features stories from authors Rory Ni Coileain, Louise Lyons, Dianne Hartsock, Nephy Hart, Rian Durant, Kathy Griffin, Asta Idonea, Rebecca Cohen, Charlie Cochran, JL Merrow, Phetra H. Novack, & M Leanne Phoenix.

Shakespeare is near and dear to my heart! And when this was offered to me to read and review I took it! It’s filled with short stories that are inspired by William Shakespeare and altered for LGBT readers. So yeah, I was SO sold on this.

There are a lot of emotions per story and how it was organized was brilliant. It is emotional in parts and joyful in others. Each writer has their own style so it was a fantastic treat to see how each did it.

There is something for everyone in this anthology; YA, Very NOT YA, tragedy, Happily ever afters, May-December romance, diverse coupling, just so much to fall in to. It a roller-coaster mix of awesome.

I totally recommend this and the fact that ALL the proceeds go to the It Gets Better Project makes it even more special!
This is not just for the Shakespeare fan it’s for the lover of literature too. So grab it!
5.0 out of 5 stars I''m going to lump all the stories into one, ... 27 March 2017
By Zeoanne - Published on

I''m going to lump all the stories into one, here. There were only a couple of stories in this Anthology I didn't care much about, for they had an abrupt ending and I'm not fond of those. They also had a 'too easy' finale when the antagonists changed their negative, corrupted minds at the spin of a dime making it a 'too easy' resolve to the situation at hand.
Most of the stories were, to me, quite enjoyable with likable characters and a satisfying ending.
