Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Twelve science fiction writers create situations "where erotic needs and society's rules conflict or interact" in Sextopia: Stories of Sex and Society, edited by Cecilia Tan (Black Feathers). In Eric Del Carlo's imagined future, "carnality has been bred out," but the occasional riot born of suppressed needs is quelled by sex soldiers; Suzy McKee Charnas's heroine sculpts a wooden man from a tree, and is gratified when he saves her life and bestows another favor or two.

From Booklist

The 11 hot stories by gifted writers of futuristic erotica that editor Tan has collected all ask us to expand our visions and understandings of sex in situations in which sexual acts impinge on society. From using sexual energy to fuel a spaceship in Jennifer Stevenson's "Something for Everyone" to examining the tremendous cost of sexual repression and a fascinating solution to its concomitant societal havoc in Eric Del Carlo's "To Love and Riot" to the tender treatment of the sexuality of a woman suffering scleroderma in A. R. Morlan's "Stone, Still," the stories in Sextopia ask for nothing less than complete engagement on the part of the reader. Explicit, brash, alien, often strangely beautiful, these insightful and sexy stories definitely make one think. Paula Luedtke

More About the Author

I write about my passions, which include baseball, erotica, gourmet food, martial arts, tea, and travel. I write fantasy, science fiction, erotic fiction, paranormal romance, and anything else that stimulates my imagination. My BDSM romance SLOW SURRENDER from Hachette/Grand Central Publishing/Forever Yours won the RT Reviewers Choice Award in erotic romance and the Maggie Award for Excellence from the Georgia chapter of the Romance Writers of America.

I'm the author of numerous other novels, many published as erotic romance with fantasy and science fiction settings, others published as sf/fantasy with erotic elements, some as erotica... which means I never know what to answer when people ask what genre they are. Fortunately here on Amazon they can be ALL of the above!

My work spans sexualities the same way it spans genres. I write heterosexual, gay, bisexual, and trans characters, and the eroticism runs the gamut from vanilla to bondage to transcendental magical sex.

I'm the author of the Magic University series, a four-book contemporary fantasy about a hidden magical school inside Harvard, recently re-released by Riverdale Avenue Books. The Prince's Boy is my erotic gay high fantasy BDSM swashbuckling romance (not kidding). Daron's Guitar Chronicles is my award-winning gay "coming out and coming of age in the 1980s" series. Struck by Lightning is my BDSM contemporary trilogy from Hachette. There is more in the works, too, of course!

In the erotic short story realm, I've been published everywhere from Ms. magazine to Penthouse, and I'm in many, many anthologies and the Best American Erotica series. Susie Bright called me "simply one of the most important writers, editors, and innovators in contemporary American erotic literature."

I've also edited many anthologies including Women of the Bite, Cowboy Lover, Sex In The System, Wicked Pleasures, SM Visions, for many different publishers, and many many books and ebooks for the independent publishing house I founded, Circlet Press. Those include Best Fantastic Erotica, Erotic Fantastic, Like an Animal, Like Crimson Droplets, and many others, both for Kindle and in paperback.

In science fiction/fantasy I have been published in Asimov's magazine, Strange Horizons, Absolute Magnitude, and many other places.

I also write and edit baseball nonfiction under the name "Cecilia M. Tan."

Format: Paperback
What a great read..... from the hard hitting first story which breaks you into the book by using a sledge hammer to the more subtle and intruiging stories later on I couldn't put the book down. A fantastic selection of authors whose names are fast becoming familiar. A good blend of Fantasy/Erotica. Excellent
