The title and subtitle, Bronies: For the Love of Ponies suggests that this is an anthology of stories set in the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic world. Not exactly.

“This anthology, then,” says Kij Johnson at the end of her Foreword, “is a melting pot for all these things. Bronies. Boys and ponies. Girls and ponies. Girls and bronies. Boys and horses. Humans and alien things remarkably like horses but not quite. Pubescent crushes on things that are not other pubescents. Adult crushes on intellectual properties. And so forth. Maybe even girls and their horses.” (p. 9)
