Book Description

Nov. 22 2006
Cream is a selection of short fiction previously published on the website of the renowned Erotica Readers and Writers Association (www.erotica-readers.com). For ten years, ERWA has offered free, high quality erotic writing by both renowned authors and newcomers. Every month the site publishes a new set of stories and "flash fiction" (erotica under 100 words). Each month's stories are selected by ERWA editors from dozens of submissions to "Storytime," a subscription-based email list and writing workshop. Now, for the first time, Cream collects the most arousing and original work that has appeared on ERWA. It includes an introduction by Lisabet and Adrienne Benedicks, owner of ERWA, and of course, a story by Lisabet. Five different theme sections such as "La Petite Mort," "Erotic Sci Fi", "A Picture's Worth a Thousand Words", "Swinging and Swapping," and "Humorous Erotica," with several stories in each, comprise the bulk of the book. Also included is a non-theme section of general erotica, and a section of "flashers."

About the Author

Half a dozen years ago Lisabet Sarai experienced a serendipitous fusion of her love of writing and her fascination with sex. Since then she has published three erotic novels including the classic 'Raw Silk', and co-edited the anthology 'Sacred Exchange', a collection of fiction which explores the spiritual aspects of BDSM relationships. Her latest work, a highly-praised collection of her short stories entitled 'Fire', was released in June 2005 by Blue Moon Books, and her erotic-noir novel, 'Exposure', will be published by Orion in 2006. Lisabet also reviews erotic books and films for the Erotica Readers and Writers Association (www.erotica-readers.com) and Sliptongue.com. Lisabet lives in Southeast Asia with her husband and felines. For more information on Lisabet and her writing visit Lisabet Sarai's Fantasy Factory (www.lisabetsarai.com).

3.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent Erotica Jan. 9 2010
By R. Swanson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I got a laugh out of some of the stories. Some actually made me excited. Used the book as a masturbation guide and was fairly satisfied. Some stories were great for the imagination and I became very aroused. Others were so-so, and passed them by quickly.
4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent erotica anthology June 1 2014

OVERALL REVIEW:

Exemplary erotica anthology.

Editor Lisabet Sarai has set a high bar for these authors to clear, and, for the most part, they have done so. (Two of the stories didn't grab me, but that's because I had qualms with their stylistic choices and tones; that said, I still appreciated why Sarai included these distinct stories in this collection.)

There are so many wonderful works in this anthology that I set my standout stories bar higher than usual.

If you only own a few erotic anthologies in your life, make this one of them. All of these stories are worthwhile reads.

STANDOUT STORIES:

"Because I Could" - Daina Blue: A Death Row inmate (Donald B. Camrooney) writes about the crime that landed him in prison. Brutal, dark, remorseless.

"What Was Lost" - Robert Buckley: Janet, a young woman, establishes a brief but oddly erotic relationship with a decrepit old man (Mr. Havilland) with a wild outlaw past. Intriguing, sympathetic, off-beat, with interesting characters and an eye on early twentieth century history.

"Newborn" - Ann Regentin: A forensics bone specialist, Martina, makes new discoveries about the world and herself in a war-torn Guatemalan village. Troubling, wise and ultimately uplifting work.

"Ghosts of Christmas Past" - Richard V. Rainment: Initially romantic X-mas tale with an effective mood morph at the end.

"Butoh-ka" - remittance girl: In Saigon, a woman (Sara) learns a new, borderline-bizarre way to dance, with help from her instructor (Kaoru). Not your usual "dance as a metaphor for sex/life" clichéd piece, this, "Butoh-ka" reaches into disturbing, gripping emotional territory that put me in a similar mindset of one of my all-time favorite novels, Kenzo Kitakata's Winter Sleep -- intuitive, beyond-words transcendant.

"Junkie" - Jaelyn: Short, sharp tale a nameless woman whose sudden, violent sex with a rough lover (Terry) hook her. Shattering depiction of addiction.

"Absences" - Chris Skilbeck: In a broken-society future, a man (James), his coma-prone wife (Petra) and her sister (Donna) deal with life- and society-changing realities. Longer than most of the stories in this anthology, it's complex, truly original and comparatively epic, echoing the best work of bigger-name science fiction writers.

"Secondhand" - Chris Bridges: Martha, a woman with psychometric abilites - she's "able to the history of a thing by touching it" - goes lingerie shopping in a thrift store, a visit that makes a bigger-than-expected impact on her. Original with a dramatic finish.

"A Man in a Kilt" - Helen E.H. Madden: In Scotland, a Dom (Nan) teaches her Scottish bottom (Jimmy) the difference between want and need. Romantic, in a BDSM way; distinct work.

"Color Less Ordinary" - Sydney Beier: A lipstick shade - "Garnet Chrome" - acelerates a pick-up that takes a surprising, delightful corkscrew. Light, fun.

"The Bookseller's Dream" - Seneca Mayfair: This bookstore fantasy is hot, smart and romantic.

"Avril's Name" - Thomas S. Roche: Sad, lovely, visually-intense tale of love and tattoo ink.

"Tears Fall On Me" - Sydney Durham: An emotionally twisty affair leads to something deeper -- and, for a time, darker -- for two lovers. Enchanting, loving work.

"Challenger Deep" - Kathleen Bradean: While fulfilling her deceased father's last wishes, a woman (Erica) begins to actualize some wishes of her own. Tropical and character-resonant story.

"Up in the Morning" - Mike Kimera: First-person point-of-view acount of male desire in married middle age, and its situational changes. Romantic, smart-minded and protagonist-progressive.

"Black Widow" - Seneca Mayfair: A husband-killer prepares to strike again. Striking, noiresque flasher.

"What Is Thy Name?" - Teresa Lamai: A woman decides between her divine amour, who may or may not be real, and the world's notion of sanity. Biblical, dark, original flasher.

"The Rigby Legacy" - Rose B. Thorny: Sex and revenge flasher, effective with its great finish line.

"Veronica's Knickers" - Julius: The funny exit sentence is a cherry to an effervescent, romantic flasher.

"The Question" - Jude Mason: Solid set-up, hilarious and wicked ending to this 100-word story.
