If tales of carnal encounters with celebrities strike you as a goofy idea for an erotic anthology, make a quick catalogue of your dreams in the past year and tote up the number of times Melissa Etheridge has come to your window or Matt Damon has revealed his hidden talent. It's no surprise that the faces we see on the screen and the voices that pipe through the radio all day come to seem as real as those of our friends and lend a little glamour to our fantasy lives. In Starf*cker
, an FTM reaches out to the dead Brandon Teena and Valerie Solanas (the feminist writer who achieved her 15 minutes by shooting Andy Warhol), the girls of Salt & Pepa come in for some latex loving, and Claire Danes gets an unexpected view of her bad-boy heartthrob Johnny Depp breaking in a new musician for his band. These stories, culled from Shar Rednour's sick and fabulous little e-zine Starphkr
, are uneven in quality, but each is as wicked as the next. Don't miss Claudius Reich's "Getting Frisky with Uncle Bill," which details a churchyard encounter with William S. Burroughs. --Regina Marler
