Editorial Reviews

Review

"G is for Games sounds promising with its theme of "games of skill and chance,"....Kristina Wright's "Seven Minutes in Heaven," about a young man tied in a closet so that he is "forced" to be the object of desire for a series of increasingly more aggressive and sexy women visitors was the best of the lot, and very hot and squirm-inducing; "The Big Touchdown" by Erica Dumas was surprisingly steamy as well, featuring a convincing cheerleader and football player in the back seat on touchdown night. Alison Tyler's "The Game" revved things up at the end with an edgy tale of sex and BDSM among a group of queer women rock stars and groupies...I recommend reading G is for Games for the very good stories..." -- T.R.

I originally put this as a comment under Mr. Webb's 1 star review, but then, i realized I should just add it as my own review of the book, so here it is:

actually i loved this book. the games were varied--from Twister and Pool to Baseball and Football. The stories were totally sexy and varied. my favorite was Playing for Keeps by Emily Dubberley, but i also really liked Rachel Kramer Bussel's take on a chess competition Check, Mate.

i have the whole alphabet thus far (can't wait for the rest of them to come out) and have enjoyed them all. the stories are fun and the covers are pretty and the spines make all sorts of fun words if you have enough of them.

it's fair for everyone to have individual viewpoints, but Mr. Webb's negative review doesn't give any information. and the personal attack on the editor seems totally unjustifiable. to say "Don't buy ANY of her books" seems asinine. just because i can't stand It's A Wonderful Life doesn't mean that i'd tell the entire world to NEVER EVER watch a single Frank Capra movie. i LOVE Mr. Smith Goes To Washington. it's the same with authors and editors. and i really don't see anything specific about what you didn't like. *and* one person's perverse is another person's normal.

This is another fun book in the alphabet series, but I didn't enjoy it as much as some of the others. In this one, the stories were either really hot or did nothing for me. Though what leaves me cold may be great to someone else. The stories aren't bad or poorly written, so I think it's still worth checking out, especially if you like the other books.

Of the 13 stories, I enjoyed 6. The naughty games of Twister in "No Limits" and Seven Minutes in Heaven in "Seven Minutes in Heaven" are fun, but are my least favorites. "Showtime" and "The Big Touchdown" have a good time getting dressed up. My number one favorite is "Nine Ball, Corner Pocket" where a couple's bet lets them live out a fantasy.

While only some stories are centered around conventional games, all of them play on the back and forth between the characters. Players taunt and tease to break their opponents. In these games, losing isn't so bad.

Format: Paperback
I've done A and F and H now, so it's time I try to get on a proper alphabetical track and get all of these read and reviewed . . .

I tend to focus on theme when I read and review these books, some of them quite good at delivering stories right on theme, while others seem to totally lose the plot. Given the theme of "games," and the subject of fully unencumbered sex, well, there's really no way to go wrong, right? One story says it's all about the "chance to conquer, tease, invade and capture . . ."

The book opens with one intense game of Twister. Then you get a hot, sweaty tennis competition, a very adult seven minutes in heaven, a football hero and his cheerleader, chess, billiards, and the more intense adult games of flirting, teasing, seduction and then some. Being an American publication, baseball makes a double appearance.

The book closes with "The Game," in which there seems to figure some sort of sexual games of domination and submission, but is mostly just an all-out all-girl rock band orgy. Sure, whatever.

There's also the considerably more esoteric "Unfinished Business," a slightly over-thoughtful piece dwelling on the psychological aspects of giving in to a right proper spanking. If you're into spanking, this one's obsession will really get to you.

G Is for Games by Alison Tyler

Feeling lucky?
Games of skill and games of chance are rife with sexual possibilities. The clever feint that lets your opponent think he's got the upper hand, the thrill of risking everything on a sudden, bold gambit, the visceral charge of raking in a pile of chips, and then, of course, there's something to be said for cheating... From party games to devilish gambles, here are stories to get you in the mood to play.

What Stephanie Thinks: There's a particular excitement in taking a gamble, a certain thrill in knowing that your every move will influence the unknown outcome of a game. Tyler's anthology in the Erotic Alphabet series maybe be petite and pocket-sized, but it definitely packs a powerful punch into its pages so small.

There's nothing unsophisticated about each of these short stories. They're shameless, yes, but they're also polished and provocative. The quality of the writing is wonderful, which I really appreciate (because typo-less erotica so hard to come across!), but that's what I've gotten used to with most Cleis Press and Alison Tyler books. The authors themselves are prolific; some of my favorite are included, including Cheyenne Blue and Rachel Kramer Bussel.

The stories each are different, in that they feature different thrilling situations or different seductive games. It's never just a round of strip poker or Spin the Bottle in G Is for Games; it's everything from Twister (think about it...just THINK about it!
