Reaching Out from a Mind as Dirty as All Outdoors

If you get lucky enough, I might post adult-only material from time to time, so be 18 or over, or please be elsewhere.

I'll be discussing erotica here, the writing of it and the people who write it, as well as what we've written. I find all these aspects stimulating, but if any of them bore you, feel free to skim. You never know what you might miss, though.

Excellent Reviews for Heiresses of Russ 2012

Two very nice reviews (so far) of Heiresses of Russ 2012, coming out October 1.

"Heiresses of Russ 2012: The Year’s Best Lesbian Speculative Fiction
Edited by Connie Wilkins and Steve Berman. Lethe, $18 trade paper (302p) ISBN 978-1-59021-159-5
The second installment of this annual series is high on adventure and lyrical storytelling, and low on identity angst and feminist politics... Showcasing a mix of authors, from superstars like Nalo Hopkinson to promising newcomers like S.L. Knapp, this solid, well-chosen collection will be enjoyed by genre fans of all genders and orientations." (Oct.)

And another review on an sf/f site worth following. It's very nicely detailed, and gets more favorable as it goes along.

Interview with Disability Blogger Sharon Wachsler

Sharon Wachsler, one of my favorite writers, has just interviewed me on her disability-themed blog. We talked about my views as an editor about stories including characters with disabilities, and ranged widely over other aspects of writing and editing erotica. I had fun, and I hope you'll take a look. Sharon contributed two stories to Girl Crazy, and we've appeared together in various other books.
