"John Everson has to be congratulated for having the courage of his nightmares. Not every writer would be able to convert his most freakish and kinkiest imaginings into neatly plotted narratives as Everson does here...Can you say 'the Stephen King version of American Pie'?"
-- Paul DiFilippo, Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine
"...a wonderfully nasty little collection of twenty-one dark, and often erotic, horror tales. Everson has a clear and sometimes poetic style that lulls and enthralls, drawing you in comfortably only to snap you up."
-- Michele Patterson, Painted Rock
"...an incredible collection that will surely "move" you in ways you never knew possible from a horror story."
-- David Sparks, 1000 Delights

What….the…..hell….is wrong with you?
With that I went back to finish what I started. This collection is NOT going to be for everyone, this collection is erotic horror. Some like their horror to scare them with things that go bump in the night, this collection keeps you on the edge of your seat with disturbing tales that involve the most intimate and vulnerable of positions. Don’t feel bad if you get a little turned on by some of these stories, it’s only human nature, and PD Cacek does a great job in the introduction explaining what erotica aims to do. Will you feel a bit dirty? Absolutely, but you’ll continue on anyway.
Within these 20 stories, you have the over-arcing theme of sex, intimacy (not all intimate moments deal with sex), and violence. Like with any collection there are some stand-outs, and there are some misses. The ratio here is FAR skewed to the stand-outs though.
Each story has a little blurb from Everson about the inspiration for each entry and it really does help to set the tone before you get into them. Some are frightening, The Mouth, and some are quite humorous, Murdering the Language.
Everson manages to take the same theme and spin it over and over again in many different ways, but still makes each story feel fresh at the same time so you don’t feel like you’re reading the “same old same old” throughout the collection.Read more ›
CAGE OF BONES features stories about obessions, sex with a witch that puts twin baby dragons in the male part of the body that isn't suppose to have dragons, obessessions, sex with a sex goddess that sucks your essences dry, sex with... you get the idea.
My favorite tale is "Dead Girl On The Side Of The Road." Everson takes the old crossroad "deal with the legend" and creates a new adult version that is even more scary and sexy than the original.
Take a chance and get this bad boy :)
These were very good stories. While they were billed as 'erotic horror' I wouldn't have said they were that naughty. They were more horrifying and the sex was in context. I applaud the author for being able to take me on a terrifying non stop rollercoaster ride, leaving me breathless and gasping at the end of each story. Great stories but don't read them alone or with the light off.

Decently written collection of graphic horror stories. Most sexual in nature. Quite a bit of blood and violence. Not bad if you like this sort of stuffPublished 8 months ago by Godzilla
They should really save the trees and not bother publishing this carp. Even S King post accident can write better than this.Published 15 months ago by Kindle Customer
