The Fey have been with us since the beginning, sometimes to our great joy but often to our detriment. Usually divided (at least by us silly humans) into two courts, the first volume of A Chimerical World focuses on the Seelie Court: the court we humans seem to view as the “good” faeries. But “good” and “evil” are human concepts and as alien to the Fey as their mindsets are to us.

Inside you will find 19 stories that delve into the world of the faeries of the Seelie Court, from authors both established and new, including George S. Walker, Eric Garrison, and Alexandra Christian.

But be warned: these faeries are nothing like Tinker Bell.

Layla Hunter's Story - Dark desires; forbidden pleasures; an unholy affection.

Lilura had been a solider, existing for the sole purpose of battle, her heart as cold and empty as her bed. Perhaps it was her blood lust that drew him to her in the first place, but her conquests had become a thorn in his side.

Asmodeus, the Demon Prince. Spellbound by the Warrior Witch, not with magic but with unearthly desire, his intent was to destroy her; hold her captive, break her will, and rid himself of her once and for all.

Neither one of them could have expected Lilura’s captivity would shift the boundaries of who was the captive and who was the master as they embarked on a journey of dark desires, only to discover an unholy affection.

Werewolves have recently become popular figures in romance, especially the steamy subgenre of "paranormal romance." Independent publisher Circlet Press, known for specializing in blends of the erotic with the fantastic, pushes that mainstream idea one step further, beyond romance into the erotic, and beyond wolves to other were-creatures. With Like Tooth and Claw, Circlet looks into the fantasy potential of other intriguing animals.

The six stories in Like Tooth and Claw feature a wide variety of shapeshifters, from seal-like selkies to lions, but editor Joy Crelin says one theme remains constant, and it isn't just sex. "It's self-discovery. Through their transformations into animals that walk, crawl, swim, or fly, the characters always end up learning what it means to be human."

Like Tooth and Claw is available for purchase from Circlet.com, Amazon's Kindle Store, BarnesandNoble.com, Fictionwise, and other online retailers.

Orgasmic springs from a delicious idea — a book of erotica that explores every possible type of orgasm.

Oral sensations, digital delights, tricks with toys, and the old bump and grind are all featured, along with many more imaginative ways to bring a lover to climax.

  • Publisher: Circlet Press, Inc.

With their own demise staring them in the face, the characters in Apocalypse Sex decide to do one thing: have the best sex of their lives. These stories include a range of settings, tones, and sexualities, but they share the feeling of freedom that impending death can provide. And, of course, they share the desperately intense kind of sex that you can only have if you think it might be your last.

In J. Daniel Sawyer's “Buried Alive in the Blues,” a woman finds a speakeasy at the edge of the world, where she discovers the answer to her lover's mysterious death, she witnesses a stage show that no one will ever see again, and she finds a new lover and a hope for redemption.

Elizabeth Coldwell's “Expiry Date” imagines a world where debtors literally explode if they can't pay their debts. A woman has 24 hours to find money or die. She has one last chance to have the sex she's always been afraid to try.

Elizabeth Schechter writes “Darkest Night” from the perspective of a sentient ship's computer who watches her captain's love-making with curiosity and a little envy. When there's a problem with the air onboard, the captain runs a simulator that allows him and the computer to do what she's always wanted.

In the lighthearted “Invasion!” by Beverly Langland, Frank and Martha have always had a flirtatious relationship, but they've never gone further because Martha is married. When Martians attack Earth, Frank and Martha finally get their chance, and when they find a scared young girl, they get the chance to do what they've never imagined.

In “Fences,” by David Hubbard, a virus threatens the entire human race. The X virus can takes years to kill a person; it's already killed Jeremy's lover, and Jeremy himself might die any day now. Jeremy uses the time he has left to seduce the straight guy next door. It won't be easy, but he has nothing left to lose.

When the apocalypse looms, you can choose to die or you can choose to live. In these life-affirming erotic stories, inhibitions are cast aside and fantasies are fulfilled as the doomed desperately search for a way to forget the world, and for sex to remember forever.

Bad boy rocker Cameron Justice has everything...money, a beautiful mansion, expensive cars, and the lead in an upcoming movie. He is admired by women from all over the world and the envy of men. Spoiled and rotten to a fault, Cameron is used to getting his way. So when he confesses his love to his manager Julianne he naturally thought she would accept. 
 
Unfortunately, Julianne turns him down like a hot potato because he is too young for her and bruises his fragile little rock star ego. On one of his wild tirades Cameron packs up his things and leaves Hollywood. 
 
Spurred by the mass hysteria of Cameron's fans Julianne hops in a car and drives halfway across the country to bring his psychotic butt home. But once she finds him back in the sleeping little mountain town where he was born, dressed in tight-fitting jeans and a plaid shirt she discovers maybe having a sexy young blond mountain man might not be a bad thing.

Men are the ones gifted with all sorts of power in our society, but a dirty little secret is that so many of them long to strip themselves of this power, to be tied down, gagged, spanked, taken, and owned.

Please, Ma'am shows some of the tantalizing possibilities out there for sniveling men and the women who love them. Best-selling erotica editor Rachel Kramer Bussel has gathered together top voices in the genre, including Stephen Elliott, Alison Tyler, Dominic Santi, and many more. In Please, Ma'am, men willingly submit to the deliciously dominant women who entertain their deepest desires and give them the treatment they crave.

The history of the walking dead is a long one.

Since before man walked the Earth, the dead have been with us.

Rotting, decrepit animated corpses have existed, and in many places, have helped create the evolution of the very history we all know as fact, but yet they have always remained hidden from mankind as the sands of time flowed through the hour glass.

From Egypt, to London, to the first moon landing, to the old West; zombies have been a part of our culture, our very lives, though each time it has been erased, eradicated from our history.

Perhaps in these lost tales of our past is the hope for our future.

In these stories might very well be the answers of what to do when the zombie apocalypse finally arrives. So read these tales quickly and learn from them.

For even in the past, the dead walk, and if they did once before, it's a fact they will do so again.

The only question is: When will that be and will you be prepared?

With stories by Tony Schaab, Jose Alfredo Vazquez, David Bernstein, Mark Rivett, T.W. Brown, Nickolas Cook, Mark M. Johnson, Spencer Wendleton, Eric S. Brown, Anthony Giangregorio, Kevin James Breaux, G.R. Mosca and Lee Clark Zumpe.

Join a tour around the United Kingdom with Erotic Brits. In these eighteen tales, you will see a Britain you probably didn't know existed. There are no tea and crumpets on the lawn, no genteel romances or period pieces. Instead you can enjoy a scorching-hot rendezvous on an Irish ferry, where a woman happily submits to three men, letting each of them use her for their pleasure. In St. Albans, a choirmaster orchestrates a three-way in a cathedral, whilst disciplining his wayward chorister. They all know the drill-misbehave, and receive some very personal correction. However a sexy visitor who inadvertently breaks the rules doesn't know that correction means taking one man from the front and one from the rear.
 
Great Britain is a country full of history and tradition, steeped in ancient myths and legends. Your very special tour includes Pagan sexual rites held at Stonehenge, tales of vampires who feed on the inhabitants of Manchester, and a room full of ghostly men and women in a secret room in London, who take part in wild orgies that never end. These Brits are always looking for fresh meat. They won't turn down blood either.
 
If you ever thought the United Kingdom was a nation of stiff upper lips, then prepare to learn what really gets hard in the U.K. This unique collection celebrates all the naughty exploits that take place up and down the county, including women who love to have kinky fun in a queer London pub, and a threesome who enjoy outdoor sex at historic Edinburgh Castle. The locations don't only provide a backdrop to the lusty scenes-they become an integral part of every sizzling story. This tour is not in the guidebooks, but you can take it right now!

For twenty-three years, the Writers of the Future contest and its sister competition, Illustrators of the Future, have been awarding prizes to new science fiction writing and drawing talent. The contest is judged by major science fiction writers and artists, creators who have proven to be gifted and successful. One must wonder, then, why the resulting anthology is so uninspired. Several titles have interesting premises, such as Aliette de Bodard's Obsidian Shards, a religion-steeped mystery set in the ancient Aztec empire, or The Sun God at Dawn, Rising from a Lotus Blossom by Andrea Kail, featuring a correspondence between Abraham Lincoln and Tutankhamen, which is intriguing but tries too hard to make a point at the end. Many pieces, however, are a little too reminiscent of older, better-crafted works of science fiction. The illustrations are likewise a disappointment, although their lackluster appearance might stem from being reprinted in black and white in a mass-market paperback format. They offer little to the stories they illuminate and are not even laid out before the story they accompany, even though the contest rules state that the illustrations are selected based on the judge's "personal opinion on the extent to which it makes the judge want to read the story it illustrates." Rules and submission information for both contests are included, so libraries with avid science fiction writers or artists might consider steering them toward this book, although they are the only likely readers.

Clap Your Hands...NOW! Because you better believe the world is full of Bad-Ass Faeries!

Toss out your childhood notions of faeries that are all goodness and light. No golden pixies clothed in gossamer, dancing on the wind, here to make the rainbows shine and the birds sing. These tales are of faeries on the raw edge, battle-worn and in black leather, with a glimmer of darkness in their eyes, if not their very hearts.

From the meanest city streets to one dusty, disturbing saloon, on the wing or the back of a Harley, no matter where you look, they are headed your way, trailing attitude, bodies, and a dust devil of magic in their wake.

Good or bad or just plain rotten, you’ll never look at faeries the same way again.

Summer in Canaan, by Sunny Moraine, finds Jacob trying to rekindle the muse in a cabin in the woods. Will Aaron be able to help him, or is it too late for both of them. Finally, in The House that Pip Built, but Mercy Loomis, Caleb wants desperately to be in the same fraternity as his longtime crush, Evan. Will he be able to spend enough time in a haunted house to get his wish?

On Christmas Eve, 1958, Great Aunt Maude gives a unique snowflake ornament to each of them: Allegra—thirteen, Sonata—twelve, Melody—nine, and Carole—eight.

In Snowflake Secrets, each sister, now grown, uncovers the magic of her unique ornament. As they confide their revelations to each other and their dying mother, they discover the secret they all share. Every narrative is unique and told in a different voice by four authors: Allegra by Lorna Collins; Sonata by Christie Shary; Melody by Luanna Rugh and Carole by Sherry Derr-Wille. Yet all their stories are woven together into the tapestry of Snowflake Secrets, an inspirational tale of family, love and finding that special joy that makes life worth living.

When shapeshifters mix it up with threesomes, you can be sure that sparks are going to fly. That's the idea behind Shifting Them, a collection of ménage shapeshifter stories that mix the boys with the boys with the girls, from big cats to wolves and beyond.

From the glamorous world of modern-day magicians to a futuristic universe filled with danger, the stories in Shifting Them will sweep you away into a whole new universe, where wolves scrabble about on city streets, where snake shifters plot from their nests, where a seemingly innocuous dog helps to make sparks fly between humans. Whether it's fur or fangs, these very human creatures have a wild side, one that excites and amazes.

Mix the shifters' inherent sexiness with a threesome, and you've got a volatile, romantic combination. With stories from C.C. Bridges, Anah Crow, Dianne Fox, Kiernan Kelly, J Rocci, and BA Tortuga, the raw, animal magnetism of Shifting Them proves that adding a third person -- in life and in bed -- can make for a happy, and hot, ending.

'Maggie's Menage' by Lacey Thorn

Maggie had spent a lifetime trying to win the love and affection of her father, but nothing seemed to work. Now he was asking her to seduce and marry one of two men that he had selected for her...for the good of the family name and company. But Maggie has other plans. Plans that will leave both men thinking of her as something other than a wife, and leave her father's plans for marriage in ashes.

Alex and Patrick were there to investigate Dom Houston and through the carelessness of his assistant managed to get in to see the man himself. But it was the blonde haired beauty that commanded their attention from the get go. And when she arrived at their hotel room later in the day, neither was willing to walk away. If Maggie wanted a m‚nage then they were more than willing to give it to her.

But for two of them it would be more than they could have ever imagined.

'Boy Toys' by Brynn Paulin

Since her job transfer to England, she's hidden her attraction to the much younger men. Unfortunately, the attraction seems to be growing every day and every night she fantasises about them. Three days virtually alone with them will be no fantasy and might instead be an embarrassing disaster. But...

Jason and Christopher have had their eyes on Dana since she joined their department. Through a little finagling they've arranged for her to be part of this trip. They're sure her project is a spot on compliment to theirs and her presence will be an ideal addition to their bed. Now all they have to do is convince her that the bad boys will make her perfect boy toys. Forever.

But, they're the ones in for a shock when Jennica tells them they may be too tame for her sexual likes. It turns out that Jennica is a submissive and she loves to be bound and spanked by her master. The shock wears off quickly when Alec and Kevin decide that Jennica will like two Dom masters much better than one.

Soon they realise their best mate really is their best mate, and that she's always owned their hearts.

'Monsoon Fever' by Lisabet Sarai

Divine temptation lies in wait in an ancient and mysterious land.

Far from the bustle and distraction of London, left alone to endure the monsoon rains while Jon struggles to complete the final harvest, Priscilla realises how much she misses Jon's touch.
