Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Tan (Sex in the System) presents the top stories from Circlet's Best Fantastic Erotica contest in an anthology that runs the gamut from sensual SF to surreal fantasy. Arinn Dembo's Monsoon, the deserving prize winner, tells the tale of Benton, a photographer and womanizer traveling in India, whose encounter with a mysterious seductress results in an eerie surprise. Other highlights include Carolyn and Steve Vakesh's wry Capture, Courting and Copulation: Contemporary Human Mating Rituals and the Etiology of Human Aggression, a scholarly lecture by and for dragons; Connie Wilkins's The Bridge, about a British veteran's curious encounter with the Green Man; and Catherine Lundoff's hilarious Twilight, in which half-vampire co-ed Mariel tries to dodge annoying yet seductive vampire hunter Christopher Van Helsing.

HASH(0xb3a084d4) out of 5 stars An impressive and superbly produced volume May 8 2008
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The difference between pornography and erotic literature is a fine line of literary demarcation that is as subject as any other distinction between categories of art and artistic expression. Circlet Press is a premier publisher of erotic literature and its publisher, Cecilia Tan, is an expert in all aspects and segments of this specialized literary genre. Her newest publication is "Best Fantastic Erotica", a compilation of eighteen stories from authors around the globe who were winners of the first worldwide search for the best in erotic science fiction and fantasy genres. Five hundred entries were narrowed down over the course of a year, leaving readers to enjoy the contributions by both winners and runner-ups. The carefully crafted, deftly executed, imaginatively original, and memorably entertaining stories range from Arinn Dembo's Monsoon, to Argus Marks 'Copperhead Renaissance', to Fauna Sara's The Caretaker; to Dan Recht's 'A Circlet Crossword'. "Best Fantastic Erotica" is an impressive and superbly produced volume that is enthusiastically and confidently recommended for readers of sophistication who appreciate an erotic element infused with seminal stories of science fiction and fantasy.

HASH(0xb3a086e4) out of 5 stars Another quality collection from Circlet Press April 4 2008
By TammyJo Eckhart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
After four years and over 500 submissions, Circlet Press presents 18 erotica pieces with some "fantastic" element to them. Some are science fiction, other fantasy, and others are very subtle in their unusual qualities that qualified them as "fantastic". As with all anthologies, some of the stories you'll love, some you'll like and some you frankly won't. Out of the 18 though I think anyone who likes literary erotica will find several pieces to enjoy. There are authors whom may be familiar to some of you as well as brand new authors; again anthologies are great for presenting new authors as well as giving work to well-tested writers. My two favorite stories were "Marked" by Cory Nelson and "Circe House" from Jason Rubis -- both had that darker quality I often like in erotica. Not all the stories are dark though, some are romantic, some silly, and some will make you think deeply. Overall an excellent collection.

The stories in this collection are good, but they tend to be more story and less erotica... depends on what you are reading for...

HASH(0xb3a08a08) out of 5 stars Great collection June 5 2011
By Brian Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you're looking for something that is not only erotic but also full of fantasy and imagination, look no further. The stories in this volume range from titillating to peculiar and will help the hours pass by in a pleasant way.
