A collection that features 15 of the best gothic erotic short stories.
From Susie Bright, grand dame of erotica and editor of “The Best American Erotica” series and “X: The Erotic Treasury”, this compelling collection features 15 of the best gothic erotic short stories to date, 10 written especially for this collection. Susie Bright describes this collection of short, erotic stories as the 'romantic roots of ecstasy and tragedy'. Linking each tale of sexual fantasy and exploration is a gothic theme - celebrating mystical characters, forbidden sexual relationships and interludes, and secretive, private pleasures.
Bright co-founded and edited the first women's sex magazine, On Our Backs, 'entertainment for the adventurous lesbian,' from 1984 to 1991. She founded the first women's erotica book series, 'Herotica' and edited the first three volumes. She started 'The Best American Erotica' series, which continued 1993-2008.
