Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Ignore the brazen title of this book and you'll enjoy it more. Cybersex is a compilation of futuristic tales taking place in both outer space and cyberspace. Most of the stories feature computers programmed to perform sensual acts with aliens or other weird forms of life. Some stories delve into electric prosthetics that transport participants to future orgiastic worlds. The entire book takes the concept of safe sex to a new level and arouses the sexiest organ of them all--the brain. Some may be surprised to see Kurt Vonnegut Jr. on the list of authors. Other contributors include Harlan Ellison, J.G. Ballard, Katherine Dunn, Kathe Koja, and Storm Constantine.

From Library Journal

This compilation of short stories and novellas focuses on technologically advanced sex. The stories, a few sexually explicit but not pornographic, are from such authors as Martin Amis, Kurt Vonnegut Jr., David Gerrold, Harlan Ellison, James Tiptree Jr., Connie Willis, Joe Haldeman, and Frederik Pohl. Pass if you have a strong sf magazine collection where these already appeared; otherwise, purchase on demand.

Format: Paperback
I received this book as a gift from my non-cyber-savvy brother, and immediately assumed
that it was going to be a silly, sensationalist, overwrought work of pornography.
I was delighted to find I was wrong. It turned out to include some extraordinarily thoughtful fiction,
several pieces of which were quite appropriately anti-cyber and humanistic. The selection are excellent,
wide-ranging, often a *lot* of fun, and have provoked not only the expected lower arousal but also an
unexpected and pleasing arousal of a more intellectual nature. I recommend this book.

If you can find a copy of these short stories, you will find something out of the ordinary to read. Some stories are adolesent, some are dated, but some are interesting.

I am delighted this nifty antho is doingso well. My story, "Bots," is included,and is *the first, the very first* fiction ever puiblished about IRC -- originally in 1995 in a small press mag, PUCK, and now angthologized all over. Hey, if you're reading this, check out my other books here at amazon.com! Buy em!
