Wilde Oats is an online literary magazine. It celebrates gay and bisexual fiction. It embraces the joys and agonies of life for gay and bisexual men, from hard gritty realism to wild flights of romantic fantasy.

Wilde Oats has gone through some big changes in recent months: we have moved to a new server and changed our appearance. The journal is published three times a year - in April, August and December. Between issues, you can find out what's happening, read snippets of new stories, see new artwork, and keep up to date by visiting us here.

Brian Holliday

Brian Holliday has had a couple of stories in Wilde Oats.   You can see his Wilde Oats page here.  One of his stories (Home Cooking) was subsequently accepted for publication in I Do Two!, the anthology written in support of gay marriage.  We're pleased to announce that we'll have another story from this author, entitled Christmas Eve, a heart-warming story of unexpected love from an unexpected place, in issue 6 of our magazine.

Here's a quote from the story:

I was busily shoving papers back into my briefcase, listening to comments from members of my own company, and then, suddenly, I saw these eyes.
You’ve got to understand, that’s not usually the first thing I notice about a guy. Most often I start my looking below the neck, sometimes below the waist, and sure, I get to the face eventually but, well… this was different. They were nice eyes, a blue so dark they were almost black, kind of startling because his brows and lashes were light, pale blond. That led me to his hair, the same pale blond color, longish and curling over his ears. His mouth was a real cupid’s bow with a funny downturn to the corners that made his smile unique. 
 The new issue will be published in December.
