Product Description

About the Author

Sharazade is a professional educator and writer with more than 15 books published under another name. She divides her time between Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and the U.S. She enjoys stories that are realistic enough that they might have happened and fanciful enough that they might not have. She values communication, adventure, exploration, passion, and love.

Format: Paperback
For me, this book already had two big plus marks beside it, before I even opened it. As a smut writer and a lifelong, but lapsed, traveller, I was enticed by the concept of combining sex with travel. I m also a big fan of Sharazade's blog page, and her insightful attitudes. I will try not to let that interfere, your honour.
Even had I not known of Sharazade's background, it would have been apparent to me that this woman knows her way around the maze of the English language. I fear I m about to admit to being a nerd, or geek, or whatever term is currently fashionable for the unfashionable. To me, sublime navigation and fluent control of language is so, soooooo sexy. And Sharazade has it in spades.

Within the first pages of this anthology it also becomes clear that Sharazade has travelled. Really travelled. Cold airports take on the qualities of landscapes. Details, some large, some almost infinitesimal, permeate every page of every story, giving this entire collection a sharp and sculpted feel.

Shar's word choices are consistently pleasing, too, as much for their appropriateness as for their novelty. In context it could seem as if those two terms are contradictory, but I feel they fit the writing perfectly. While avoiding clichés, the occasional atypical word choices employed sit so comfortably in their places that they enliven the entire anthology. From the first story in the collection, Schiphol :

"And finally, finally you enter me. Slowly, so I can feel every blessed inch fill me."

The use of blessed is a perfect example. A dual meaning, because of the context of the story. This couple regularly endures long periods of separation. Their togetherness is by necessity cramped, by both time and space. And at that moment, all the control is with him.

For those inclined to think about such things, travel is a great fuel for fantasy (and if you're not so inclined, erotica isn't for you anyway). As I was reading each of these, I thought the stories hit just the right balance between being unlikely enough to fuel fantasy and (unlike much erotica) not so far out of reach as to be an impossible dream. In Sharazade's author bio, she explains her aim in slightly different words that are saying the same thing.

The stories also strike a balance between being explicit enough without going too far. Certain details are left for the reader to fill in, which can help you make the story your own. For example, in the first story a couple meet at an airport. While it appears to others that they don't know each other, we know they do, but exactly how they know each other and what their relationship is, is left fuzzy. The stories are told from the woman's point of view sometimes, other times from the man's, and in at least one case the POV switches mid-story. Each of these points of view are done equally well. If you're a reader of erotica, especially if you're also a traveler, you should enjoy "Transported." I did.

Format: Paperback
With her debut book, Sharazade offers us an enriching literary-erotica journey. This story collection shines because of its sensuous and evocative descriptions, its intimate rendering of protagonist psychology, and its eyebrow-cocking wit. The author has an arresting eye for detail, and a gift for expression and voice that enables her to move comfortably between sardonic banter or inner monologue and gourmet depictions of pleasure. Transported takes us not only from Europe to Japan and from aiports to trains to conference centers to inns... it also takes us on a tour of impulse and self-consciousness, compatability and complexity--and, of course, desire and satisfaction.
