This work is a different take on Erotica. Sure there have been various erotic anthologies, even a waterproof version for bath tub use. But this one was based on ¿Fairy Tales for Twisted Adults.¿ Many begin with ¿Once upon a time, There was a woman once, There was once,¿ pretty typical fairy tale intros that quickly devolve into the ¿c¿ and ¿f¿ words along with some very descriptive literary imagery of male and female body parts. For an intro that REALLY grabs you try ¿TORTURE. DOES ANYONE alive even know the meaning of the word?¿ Wow, that¿s a hook that will draw in a reader. It¿s from the JJ Giles selection: Mirror, Mirror On The Wall. It¿s a clever little tale of retribution with some vivid imagery, surely a selection in this tome not to be missed. I won¿t give away the ending. Bryn Colvin¿s selection, The Jealous King and The Generous Lover, is a very fairy tale genre set piece that could be a morality play for children¿if you take out the various male genital, tongue and breast references and concordant acts. The selections are just long enough for a bedtime story read, although you may not want to drift right off to sleep after such reading. Garden of the Perverse is a fun and different read and has something for most everyone.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
