INTRODUCTION

Relatively few novels are published in which love does not play some part, and while most of them would not bring a blush to even the most conservative reader's cheek, it is impossible to think of many in which there is not some sexual element present. The extent to which it is present varies from book to book. The serious novelist in our modern times can be as subtle or as crude as the market demands. Many romance novels have a strong erotic content, especially in the historical novels. Novelists nowadays can include that erotic element without fear of prosecution.

The word "erotic" derives from the Greek "erotikos", itself from "eros", meaning simply "sexual love". The Oxford English Dictionary says "of or pertaining to the passion of love: concerned with or treating of love." The Concise Oxford adds "Tending to arouse sexual desire or excitement." The Penguin English Dictionary says "of or concerned with sexual life" and adds "amorous." Webster's mentions "literary or artistic items having an erotic theme, esp. books treating sexual love in a sensuous or voluptuous manner."

Erotica differs from pornography in a number of different ways. First, erotica usually has much more of a story attached to it, whether that story be a product of characterization, which makes characters more developed than characters usually found in novels sold in adult bookstores, or magazines such as Penthouse. A truly erotic aspect in Penthouse Letters is completely missing. I have nothing against Penthouse-- it is where I cut my teeth on the bare bones of erotica, but I learned storytelling and characterization fromwriting for Marvel Comics and the writing of three non-erotic novels.

I have always enjoyed writing erotica. I first put pen to paper and tentatively explored erotica with stories of the sexual exploits of Captain James T. Kirk of Star Trek fame. I must admit, I wasn't above writing a story or two featuring Mr. Spock in a variety of sexual situations. I was thirteen years old at the time, however, and all I knew about sexuality came from the lewd conversation of classmates older than me and a copy of The Joy of Sex stolen from my local bookstore.

Later in my life, I tried my hand at more adult-oriented erotica, penning stories featuring myself and various movie and TV stars in sexually explicit situations. I still do this from time to time, simply for my own perverted pleasure. When I was twenty, I featured a young James Bond -- Sean Connery, never any other actor as James Bond, in which I played the part of one of Bond's many female conquests in exotic locales around the world, and rock stars like Roger Daltrey and Bruce Springsteen. I even wrote one memorable piece featuring myself as me, and a young Elvis Presley. I kid you not.

As I got older (now I am 38) my tastes changed to Bruce Willis, Kevin Costner, Brad Pitt as the younger man and Sean Connery, now as the older man. Sean Connery has long been a favorite of mine. I even toyed with Harrison Ford last year. And he toyed with me.

This anthology is a compilation of my favorite stories; straight, bisexual and lesbian (I don't find myself equal to the task of writing male/male erotic fiction, as it is something I have no personal experience with, and therefore would not be able to do justice to). I hope both men and women find my stories entertaining, as erotica, like mysteries, romances, science fiction and westerns are designed to do just that -- entertain. It's not so different than writing Spider-Man after all.

Bright Blessings,
Zsuzannah BasReisa
