Literotica.com is one of the most popular and diverse sites presenting fiction by thousands of different authors. It allows writer and audience to interact pretty much free of interferences. Hark! That sound you hear is the shattering of taboos. This book collects some of the best offerings from Literotica.com and puts them into a format you can read in the bathtub, or in bed, or ... wherever. You'll find stories like Two Bags for the Bride, by Dirty Old Man, which explains why looks aren t everything. Then there's the ominously titled Still Life With Teeth, by Patricia Day, which is all about eating (enough said). A Fireman's Prayer, by Dixon Carter Lee gives a whole new meaning to the idea of burning passion....<BR> <BR> You'll probably want to read this book one-handed.<BR> -- --FEARLESS REVIEWS (S.

Hoping that Vol 2 is better. Thank You, Ray.
My favorite is Patricia Day's "Still Life With Teeth" that examines eating disorders and their damage to sexual relationships. It's harsh, intense, and sadly very realistic of how someone with an eating disorder might look at the world.
Mike Tauron's very short "Lunch with Rita" tackles the issue of age and prostitute in a unique way. "Indigo" from Julie Lemolo is sexy without explicit sex and I love when a story can pull that off so well in so few pages.
"A Fireman's Prayer" by Dixon Carter Lee is a modern romance while Anessa Ramsey's "The Games We Play" is a nice historical romance -- both authors should move to the romance gender and make excellent money.
Maggie Redux's "Whiff" also tackles difficult subjects again age but also racism in a positive fashion. Nicolas Travers offers us a glimpse into a very sad man's life in the first two chapters of "Vast".
The other stories just seemed to lack a strong focus on characters or perhaps they were just not my sort of thing though I'd say most of the stories here are honestly "not my sort of thing". Perhaps they might be yours.
For a collection of 11 stories this as good as many anthologies I've read and it's nice to see folks brave enough to open their minds up to the world online getting a little time in book form.
Not all the subject matter was necessarily to my taste but all the stories are very well crafted and well written.
To regular visitors to such sites as Literotica some of the stories may be over long and the sex scenes not as explicit as they would be used to. That said, if it is an erotic read you are looking for rather than porn then this is probably as good as any you will find.
