The beginning of this book covers the acknowledgement and an introduction by the editor, who also has an essay (The K.C. Suite) Maxim Jakubowski. Each essay has a different writer which makes this book a delightful read. Some of the essays and writers include the following: “A” by Alice Joanou, The isle of the dead by Thomas S. Roche, Pure Porn by Dion Farquhar, two at once by Robert Silverberg, Death and seduction by Catherine Sellars, tender fruit by Vicki Hendricks, beauty’s punishment by Anne rice, needless to say by Lisa Palac, the frame grabber by Denise Danks, Baubo’s kiss by Kathy Acker, the age of desire by Clive Barker and many other stories.
If you are into reading erotica you should check out this volume which I am sure you can get for a bargain price on Amazon.
Rating: 4 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Season of the Warrior: A poetic tribute to warriors)
I was expecting better, but at the right (low) price I've seen worse. Don't know if I will ever get anymore of this series.
Maybe if the price is right.....
Some of them are quite good in their own right, to be sure; they just aren't erotic. At least not to any even borderline normal person.
Jakubowski has assembled here a compendium of the most morbid, depressing, thoroughly unpleasant stories I've ever seen. I don't even want to meet anyone who gets turned on by this sort of thing. (And I am a man of broad and even kinky tastes, with no problem at all with reading about non-Euclidean sex; anyone who is familiar with my own recent work can attest to that.)
And this isn't just my opinion. As it happens, I know a couple of the authors included in this book; one in particular is a friend of mine - and he himself admitted that he was amazed that anyone would consider his story in any way erotic.
In addition, the book itself is of terrible quality: flimsy, grayish paper, too-tiny type.
Don't waste your money on this one.
