    Very interesting! I hadn't ever read lesbian erotica, and at least in this collection of stories I was intrigued how much attention is on clothes and strap ons. As with most collections of erotica, some stories were sort of boring and some were extremely hot. Very interesting!

Then again, if you like feeling as though you've been addled by stories that are low on concept, thought and intelligence, you may enjoy it very much. The first story of the anthology, Jean Casse's "The Virgin of G", did not make sense to me at all. It was like reading prose thrown together, chunky ideas blatantly and dumbly formed into sentences and paragraphs... It had no flow. And it was bizarre. I think Casse might've gotten Hemingway's quote wrong--instead of writing drunk and editing sober, she wrote sober and edited drunk. Not exactly the entrance to a high-quality anthology that a picky reader is looking for. The Diner on the Corner might have a title that sounds like it was formed from the fantastic pen of F. Scott Fitzgerald, but the only thing in this that's a throwback is the mention of rockabilly and, gasp, "black fedora." This is another story that makes little sense, although it started off well. Zaedryn Meade (must be her real name; I don't think anyone but Dickens could make up a name like that) might've started writing this while sober, and then just continued to chug the Budweiser. There are some highfaluting ideals stamped in here, just for good measure, so we're sure to have our concepts of butch, femme and emasculation properly sorted. Thank goodness. Story three, Operation Butch Ambush ... could've made a sparkling romantic comedy, but ... it isn't. Again, I read it and felt like I was thrown around in a whirlpool, not really sure what was going on and having no idea who any of these people were, or why I should care what happens to them, or enjoy descriptions of their sexual prowess. I have a feeling that this story might've been 15,000 words long originally, but the author kept paring it down until it became a mere dribble of what it was. Bait and Switch, by Nairne Holtz. I liked this story for one reason: Canada. It began strong (and free), too, before all the weirdness set in. There's more stuff about dom/sub, femme/butch, suburban bisexuals, and how all of this is good/bad depending on how dearly you love your the concept of the lesbian persona, blah, blah, blah... The greatest line? The one lady in the couple (sorry, I can't remember if she was the dom or the sub because somehow it's Not Important To Me) actually says "God, you're sexist" to her lady. Awesome. It was the truest line in the whole story. In fact, it was the best line of the four stories I read... This is as far as I got. I stopped reading when I realized that I've read a lot of erotic fanfiction that was better than this. In fact, a lot of these stories would've been improved if they'd been fanfic! This is erotica. These are stories about people that don't like each other. Love, soul and heart are missing. These, to me, are not people. They're empty, soulless puppets filled with booze, stereotypes, and lust. They just want to get it on. Clearly, I'm not as much a fan of lesbian erotica as I should be. I'm more interested in lesbian love stories, without all the politics, the vocabulary, the adherence to sexual formulas. It seems unlikely that Our Kind would be capable of writing a GLBT story if we did not have things like butch/femme and dom/sub to fall back on. Stick to your HP and/or Twilight fanfic. It won't be as disappointing.

    Don't let it be said I don't have an eclectic reading diet. From a family ranch with horses to: I picked this book up a while back. It was $1.99 and came with Whispersynch. How could I resist? I love good erotica. Especially lesbian erotica. BUT I don't like BDSM. Sorry. I think it may have a lot to do with being in pain all the time. I don't feel the slightest bit of turn-on due to pain. In fact, pain begets pain within my body. So, no. Not for me. And that was the majority of this book. As for Don't let it be said I don't have an eclectic reading diet.

All that pain without the long story to deal with. Miriam Scott is the reason I gave more than one star. Her voice narrated this whole collection of stories. Very sexy yet sweet voice. A voice that changed with the characters. I think I could listen to Ms. Scott read the dictionary or phone book. Wait, do people know those are real paper books of heft? Well, this old lady remembers those LA/Orange County door stops and the writer's best friend. I don't like anthologies as a general rule. I like stories with depth. I like getting to know the characters and the world. Stories don't do that for me. So that was another point against this book. BUT in the case of erotica it is best not to have to wait a long time for the good parts. And I didn't feel the need to read it straight through to find out how it ends. We all know how it ends! ;-) Unfortunately, not all these stories ended in a way I was happy with. To each their own, I guess.

    If this doesn’t get your heart pumping, you don’t have one. With excerpts like “Five minutes later, they were in the back of Anna’s Jeep. ‘We’re not supposed to e doing this,’ she whispered as Charlie nibbled on her earlobe” (29), it’s pretty compelling. Like many compilations, this is populist with some pedestrian writing and repetitive themes -- probably not all ‘representative of lesbians,’ but jeez it’s a thick book and has a lot to enjoy.

There’s even an adventure that couple of librarians have at a conference which turns into a slave/mistress three way. “…biting my lips like a bitch in full heat and wrapping her legs around my thigh” (170). I mean, heck, what librarianship usually gets is variations on the March of the Librarians theme. Don’t overlook Barbara Cardy’s equally arousing The Mammoth Book of Lesbian Erotica featuring another library romance wherein Zoe the librarian seduces heroine Amy with an alphabetical author list (hint for the impatient: the action starts around N and O).

    There's a lot of great writing in this - I initially was going to give it two stars, but I realized that would be selling the various authors short. I think my initial reaction was more of me being the entirely wrong audience for the anthology; I do feel I understand the butch mentality a lot better, now, though...

    3.8 stars rounded up to 4. The stories toward the beginning of the book seemed too similar in my opinion, but once I got about a third of the way in the stories got better. Overall, it was a good collection but I have seen better in the "Best" series. 3.8 stars rounded up to 4.

    Not entirely thrilling, but I got a big kick out of the story about women who have a kinky encounter at a library convention.
