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.
