Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This anthology "sexy tales of strong women" has 21 stories, the majority of which vacillate between the predictable, the formulaic and the senselessly absurd. The title story, by editor Christian, is a lesbian group S&M sex adventure-complete with a dwarf-featuring a humorless who's-dominating-whom plot. Felix Baron's "Fully Functional" is about a man who with a facial deformity who finds solace in two blow-up dolls who inexplicably come to life and turn him into a doll. However, "Sex with Ducks," by Hannah Strom-Martin, makes for a bright spot: her story is fresh, well-paced and filled with raw emotion. On the whole, however, these stories eschew both plausibility and an in-on-the-joke tone, and the uninspired writing assures the stories' inability to arouse.

About the Author

After more than a decade in the banking industry, Sage Vivant decided that erotica was more important and certainly more fun than early withdrawal penalties. In 1998, she established Custom Erotica Source, where individual clients who crave tailor-made erotic tales can find satisfaction. She has written hundreds of stories for wide ranging tastes and with partner M. Christian, has co-edited anthologies and teaches the class “Writing for Your Sex Life.”

M. Christian is the widely celebrated author of four collections of short stories, two novels, over 200 short stories appearing in a wide range of magazines, Web sites and anthologies, and the editor of 18 anthologies. In erotica, M. Christian is the most published contemporary erotic writer, having stories featured in just about every acknowledged master erotica anthology series. While she enjoys writing erotica, she is more than just a 'sex writer,' as evidenced by more than respectable credits in many other markets and genres, such as SF, fantasy, and horror.

They both reside in San Francisco, CA.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
"Sexy Tales of Strong Women." What's not to love about that subtitle? Editors M. Christian and Sage Vivant chose well, because this is not only good erotic writing but good writing, period. Not all of it is explicitly erotic, by the way. Some of it is gently suggestive. For added fun, each tale begins with a quote from an extraordinary real-life woman, from Bette Davis to Pamela Anderson to Barbara Streisand.

My favorite stories in this anthology were:

"Bullbitch 8.0" by C.B. Potts. Cowgirls are all Amazons anyway, right? But Lynette is a special -breed of cowgirl - she's a rodeo bull rider.

"The Spear of Janice Kienan" by Chris Bridges. It shows just how deeply the modern woman can get in touch with her inner Amazon.

If only it were possible to combine Chris Bridges the erotica writer with Chris "Ludacris" Bridges the rapper/actor, because that combined guy would be a hell of an erotic songwriter.

"Amazon" by M. Christian. A sexy tale of Sapphic love among burlesque dancers, one of whom has dwarfism, and the twist of the story is that the shortest woman is the most Amazonian of all.

"Punk Syster Morris" by Bryn Colvin. This was my second-favorite story of the book, about an unsuspecting man who thinks he's only going to a rock show with his buddy and ends up finding so much more.

"The Hands of a Princess" by Catherine Lundoff. Viking warrior Commander Agnes "The Bloody" Helensdottir will go to any length to serve her king, even it means pleasing his like-minded daughter.

"Sex With Ducks" by Hannah Strom-Martin. Worry not: Ducks is a man's name. He's a quirky writer, but our narrator learns how to exploit his hidden desires.
