These sixteen prize-winning stories are the cream of the crop from Palmprint's adult discipline fiction competitions, with authors from Australia, Canada, England, Scotland, USA and Wales. Plus a bonus story by Sarah Veitch. A bare bottom served up for punishment will always give the discerning reader an erotic charge, and there's no shortage of such reluctantly-exposed flesh in this collection. In a diverse range of settings and themes, most of the miscreants are female but two males are also soundly taken to task.
