Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Bright, editor of the Herotica series, has gathered here a vibrant collection of 20 erotic stories from books and magazines published over the past year. At times tender and at others startling, these stories are anything but boy-meets-girl scenarios. They explore a varied spectrum of sexual sensibilities from gay to straight to transsexual to gender-neutral extraterrestrial. Many of the stories serve to remind readers of the humor inherent in human sexuality, such as the satirical beer commercial incarnated in Mark Butler's "Cool and Clean and Crisp." The exhilarating "Sweating Profusely in Merida: A Memoir" by Carol Queen leaves the reader exhausted right along with the narrator, but the most disturbing tale, "None of the Above," is also the most arousing, in which Bernadette Lynn Bosky takes the sex-with-a-stranger motif to a highly imaginative extreme as her futuristic heroine has an orgy with body-morphed humans and genderless aliens. Although no two stories are alike, the one thing they do share is their portrayal of pure, uninhibited libidos that compel and excite the reader whatever his or her sexual identity.

When I saw Susie Bright's name on this collection of erotica I knew that I had to have it. The first collection of hers that I read was called HEROTICA and I have been hooked ever since. She is such a great editor that one need not worry at all about the quality of the fiction in her collections. Her books are always guaranteed to be well written and hot. She never fails to include a nice mixture of hetro, homo, and lesbian eroticism with a dollop of fetishism thrown in to her collections. It makes for an eclectic, enjoyable read.

Format: Paperback
I am a big fan of Susie Bright's own work and her various collected erotica anthologies, but I was really disappointed with this one. While a couple of the stories were very cool-- 'Absolution' and 'None of the Above'-- those are only two out of twenty. I didn't find stories with idiotic and racist characterizations, as in 'Big Nouns, Unconjugated Verbs', the least bit sexy or interesting. And a lot of the other stories seemed like writing exercizes in zeroing on specific fetish audiences without much success. I think so many of these collections are hot, I'd skip this year and choose any of the others.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book as a college student in 1994. I had never even heard of erotica as a genre, much less had any idea that brown-paper covered books might be literary, or that there would be anthologies of material that represented such a broad range of turn-ons and appetites, presented in a healthy and judgement-free way.

I am a huge fan of this year/edition of the fantastic BAE series. Favorite stories from this edition include the compelling and baldly poetic tale of desperate need "Slow Dance on the Fault Line" - WOW!!!! and the *hot* and *damp* "Sweating Profusely in Merida: A Memoir" (sweaty, slick and visceral...)

Virtually anything Susie Bright touches turns to gold. I had the pleasure of meeting her once at a book reading/signing at Skylight Books in Los Feliz (Los Angeles). I am forever grateful to her and this volume in particular. I've had 13 years of happy erotica-binging ever since! As Susie might say, "Clits Up!"

By A. Customer on May 23, 2001
Format: Paperback
Before this book, I had read erotica with no ambition whatsoever to write any myself. Two stories in this book changed all that: PG DIARY and SWEATING PROFUSELY IN MERIDIA. They were good and, unlike much of what is called erotic, they were engaging on other levels. I liked the protagonists, I was interested in their plight, they seemed human, they seemed to be enjoying themselves and not doing it for my pleasure. Ms. Bright put together a nice collecion. I forgot. Stone Butch Blues was nice, too.
