Newly updated, this everyday-free anthology of mature literary erotic fiction includes a complete short story 'Sleeping Dogs and Southern Comfort’ as well excerpts from the up-coming collection 'Stories Out of School', along with generous selections from the novels 'A Song for the Girl with the Almond Eyes' and 'The Seven Seductions'. Finally, for dessert, a collection of bawdy limericks.
The novels and stories excerpted here began life as imagined conversations. What would smart, sexy, articulate people talk about if they were free to think and say whatever they liked? Smart people want pretty much the same thing as everybody else; they just want to deconstruct their favorite episodes of 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' or quote William Butler Yeats while in the process of getting it, undoubtedly bandying about one of the great Irish poet’s most famous pronouncements while gently maneuvering their partners into bed; “sex and death are the only things that can interest a serious mind.”
These stories have the sex part covered, and one of them even delves into death at the end. The characters have decidedly serious minds, always actively engaged, yet most of them are people you might imagine hanging out with and talking to, or fantasize about making love with. They are the sort you wish you knew in real life, and not just because they don’t mind if you fantasize about making love to them—in fact, they hope you will.

About the Author
Terrance Aldon Shaw (TAS to his friends) was born and raised somewhere to the left of Chicago in that vast whitebread wilderness known as the American Heartland. As a kid, he passed the time by creating his own graphic novels and “pretend” screenplays, conversing with a brilliant circle of imaginary friends, and dreaming about escape from the stifling phony wholesomeness and pious pabulum of small-town life. After college and a short stint in graduate school, TAS earned a living as a journalist and free-lance musician. He worked under various pennames as a staff writer and critic at-large for a number of obscure local newspapers and mediocre magazines throughout the upper Midwest. Always precociously oversexed and insatiably curious, he dabbled in erotic writing during his off hours, producing several short stories, a modest body of narrative poetry, and several hundred bawdy limericks. Now devoting full time to writing and reviewing, TAS specializes in mainstream fiction with strong erotic themes and explicit sexual content. His work might best be described as “psycho-rotica,” as he prefers to explore the complex, fascinating inner world of sex; the thoughts, feelings and emotion s that accompany the erotic experience. Readers can find Terrance Aldon Shaw’s books in both electronic and traditional print at most on-line retailers. His reviews of erotic fiction, musings on the craft of writing, and the occasional free short story are posted on his blog, Erotica For The Big Brain.
