Book Description

17 July 2006
Sex and death have always been interrelated. The French describe orgasm as la petite mort (the little death). The Victorians believed a man's climax depleted his physical strength and moral resolve and brought him closer to death. Likewise, women's engagement with the sex act equated a loss of vitality. What is this fascination with sex and death? Indeed, sex and death have long been themes in literature. (A contemporary example of this is J.G. Ballard's acclaimed novel "Crash".) There is clearly an interest in fiction that draws parallels between sex and death. "Dying For It": Tales of Sex and Death" satisfies this literary craving by providing readers with an exciting and entertaining variety of textual (and, it is hoped, fictional!) expressions on the subject of sex and death. Contributors include novelists from across the literary spectrum: Lauren Henderson, Vicki Hendricks, Adreana Robbins and Lisette Ashton. "Dying For It" will appeal to readers of mainstream fiction, crime, mystery, erotica, fantasy, horror - and everything in between. The anthology can be reviewed in nearly every type of mianstream publication. The collection will appeal to male and female adult readers of all sexual preferences and tastes and can be enjoyed by those looking for light entertainment as well as those seeking a more literary read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well chosen shorts 23 July 2007
By C. Haste - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought the book because it includes a story by Kelley Armstrong. I was unfamiliar with most of the other authors. Frankly, in an anthology that include just three or four stories, I can usually find one or more that are sophomoric, poorly written or edited, or simply a rehash of dozens of short stories I've already read.

Dozens of the stories in this well edited book were interesting and original. Yes, some of them were about uncomfortable topics, but then the entire book is about sex and death. Both are bound to be tied to some uncomfortable topics. I found it an overall very satisfying find.

3.0 out of 5 stars Dying for it: Stories of Sex and Death, Review 9 Nov 2006
By Manuel Nava V - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Its a nice book, but I didn't like all of the stories, some of them were really sick. Including sex with animals. I would recomend buying it because it has some very good and sensual stories.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hit or Miss 23 July 2007
By Speech Prof - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Unlike really well-edited anthologies, this one suffered from inconsistency in the quality of the stories contained within. Most of the stories reflected disturbed people or situations, which is part of the anthology's overall charm and quality. The stories varied considerably, however, with regard to their interestingness, how engaging they were, and the extent to which the characters were compelling or developed. Some of them were fabulous, and some of them were "eh", but none of them were dreadfully bad. This isn't the first book I'd recommend a person read, but it certainly isn't on the do-not-read-at-all-costs list.
