"A dazzling collection of literary fantasy with never a dull moment." - Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Bright's work will enchant readers of dark speculative fiction who seek brighter futures for characters who have often been marginalized." - Publishers Weekly

"Stories to Sing in the Dark is a heady--and welcome--mix of the dark, the twisted, the strange, and most importantly the queer, but the tune it offers works to perfection: it doesn't overwhelm, doesn't leave the reader hopeless, and hooks you back for more after each tale. Nothing is safe from Bright's distortive lens: holiday classics, childhood tales, literary greats, and thank all the gods for that. Between retellings and new tales, Bright's threads of the other--be they spirit, steam, or futuristic--have crafted tales well worthy of their addition to the speculative fiction canon, and I for one couldn't wait any longer to cheer their arrival." - 'Nathan Burgoine, author and finalist for the Lambda Literary and Aurora Awards
