4-0 out of 5 stars More psychology than biography
A common adage for writers is "to write about what you know." Given that, Ramsland doesn't so much as give us a run-down on Anne Rice's life as give us an explanation of how her life has affected her stories. Not only does Rice consciously write about the things she has studied, but she subconsciously tells us about her life.

Ending just after "The Witching Hour" was published, this book is a little outdated. The final words from the author discuss some of the projects that Anne Rice was working on. From what is said here, Rice was not thinking about spending as much time with the vampires as she eventually did. She also was thinking of returning to the mummy; however, I have yet to see this happen.

The text gives an account of Anne Rice's childhood and influences, her relationship and marriage to Stan Rice, her daughter who died of leukemia, and her son. It also discusses some of the work she has done once she began to create a name for herself. As mentioned, this isn't the meat of the text.

The meat of the text is in showing how she is resolving personal and subconscious issues in her writing. She is also sharing her memories of New Orleans and San Francisco. Many of her characters reflect herself and people in her life.

Although this is fascinating, it leads to a "bogging down." To ensure that the readers remember the characters, Ramsland provides long summaries of the key texts from this time, including the Anne Rampling and A.N. Roquelaure novels. This disrupts the narrative and keeps the readers from truly connecting with the flow of Rice's life.

Nevertheless, I would recommend this book to young writers and fans of Anne Rice.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best biographies ever

This book is a wonderful examination of Anne Rice's life and works. I only wish this book were updated to her more recent books. Every Anne Rice fan should read this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Erotic, Horrific, Powerful
Once again, the Hot Blood series delivers on it's promise of exciting both your fear factor and erogenous zones simultaneously. While some of the stories are brilliant, such as "Jacking in", "Video Date", and "Godflesh", others drag a bit. But, even the worst story in Hot Blood: Stranger by Night is better than the other books and short stories out there. Just remember, if you share this book with someone you love, just hope they don't get too many ideas from it.... that could be down right scary.

Divorce him, Marry Me had me from the first page.This is one of those book that will have you reading all night, just to get to the ending.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Must Read!
This is a fabulous publication filled with exciting twists and turns in the lives of its characters. When we get caught up in the ugliness of betrayal and deceit, we lose our minds. What about those electrifying attractions and those magical sexual encounters, can we really walk away from them? When is the price too high? Find out! This is a must read!

5-0 out of 5 stars Drama Time
Are you ready to read a page turning literary soap opera? Do you enjoy reading drama, suspense, and romance that don't always have a happy ending? Then I invite you to read DIVORCE HIM, MARRY ME by Darrin Lowery-Smith.

The story centers on Derrick, a 35 year old social worker enrolled in college pursuing his master's degree and who has a crush on his classmate Rose. He fantasizes about her all the time. Rose is a 47 year old married school teacher who admires Derrick from a distance. Rose's husband, Michael, a police officer, is intimidated by her decision to go back to college which causes tension between them.

Derrick and Rose become friends and although there is a mutual attraction, age difference notwithstanding, Rose has no intention of being unfaithful to her husband of 27 years. Realizing the latter, Derrick develops a romantic relationship with Stephanie who is a single mother with a teenage son.

Fate intervenes and Rose learns that her husband has been having an affair with her white classmate, Karen. Unfortunately, Karen has several skeletons that are soon revealed in a very cunning way. Stephanie's son's father suddenly appears on the scene and decides he wants things the way they use to be, not mentioning the fact that he has been married to another woman for 14 years. The primary and secondary characters come face to face with their individual dramas and realize that it's not easy severing ties.

What happens next can be compared to a piñata filled with suspense, lies, manipulation, violence, murder, eroticism and psychotic behaviors. The aftermath brings out intense actions and decisions that will affect people's lives forever.

The storyline was original and much effort was put into giving the reader a unique fast paced novel. I think it was even too fast paced for the author because there were character mix-ups in a couple of areas. However, it did not negatively impact the storyline because the layout of the events allowed you to realize whom the author was referencing.

Mr. Darrin Lowery-Smith developed a great plot and the story inscribes his ability to incorporate explanations of his characters' behavioral patterns and the reasons for their choices. DIVORCE HIM, MARRY ME is a good novel for readers who enjoy drama, romance, and surprise endings with a twist.

5-0 out of 5 stars Black Fatal Attraction!
This book will make men think about fooling around with another woman. This book reminds me of the movie, "Fatal Attraction." The second edition is better than the first addition, and the characters are off the hook. The erotic scenes remind me of Zane and the story line is like an action packed drama. I read that Darrin Lowery Smith is shopping this story as a play. I can't wait to see it. The book takes off within the first ten pages and keeps the reader hooked. I am waiting for the sequel. Looks like Chicago has another great African American Writer.

5-0 out of 5 stars Addictive!
This story of Darrin's love is a classic tale of "forbidden fruits" and what can happen when one dares to cross the line. It is suspenseful and completely captivating. I literally could not put this THRILLER down. This book takes you through the entire gambit of emotion. Joy, pain, suspense and "high drama" are just a few of the moods set forth in this work of fiction/art. This novel is definately a "Must Read" for all romance/thriller enthusiasts. The story of Divorce Him Marry Me is not unlike your favorite roller coaster ride...once you open the cover...HANG ON! ... Read more

Book Description

Artist/writer Bill Bronson takes a mockin' and rockin' look at horror and grrl-power, and comes up with a crunchy mix of tricks and treats he calls "Chicks & Monsters." A multi-flavored package of cruel-to-be-cool comics and painfully delightful drawings, Bronson's work can be described as a kind of punk Charles Addams for the new millennium. Stories include The Postmortem Girls in "The Band Practice that Woke the Dead," The Mothball Jawbreaker Gang in "Clean Up on Aisle 666," and The South Side Saints doing battle with rowdy hobgoblins who don't know when to leave! All this and pages of pin-ups, sketches, and other decidedly demented and morbidly fascinating artwork! For cute witches, hot vampire chicks, and girl golems with crushes on undead - where else would you go for one-stop shopping? ... Read more

The book was so successful that it spawned a series of seven erotic retellings of Victorian gothic novels, Rife with spankings, whippings, and the discovery of hidden sexualities, this version of Jekyll & Hyde explores the monster of lust that lurks inside even the most respectable characters. ...

I collect different versions of the old story of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, and I expected this one to be a bit daring. In fact, it was more than so... The book is actually rather well-written, but the sexual content would be more exciting if it didn't happen so very often, and for no appearent reason, between anybody and everybody who just happens to be in the same room toghether! More story and less sex and this would have been a rather good version of Jekyll & Hyde. ... Read more

Book Description

Shai Jordan, fledgling New York journalist, is on the trail of a serial killer.

The excitement of her first big assignment turns into terror when she sees an eerie resemblance between this string of murders and the death of her mother years before -- the bodies have been drained of blood. All signs point to Shai as the next victim, but no one, not even the police, will believe her or protect her.

Out of the darkness comes a man who turns her blood to flame and incites her deepest, darkest desires. But is her dark lover her savior? Or her killer? ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable But Way Too Short!
Shai Jordan was celebrating her birthday with her 4 closest friends: the famous movie star Melanie, the fabulously wealthy Vivian, the gorgeous ex-model Erihn, and the mysterious Jennifer when they got onto the topic of Shai's love life, or lack thereof. For the first time, Shai shared her idea of a dream lover - someone who would come to her at night and give her pleasure beyond her wildest dreams. Unbeknownst to her, Shai's dreams were overheard by Valentin, a centuries old master vampire who decided to make all of her dreams come true... But what Valentin didn't know is that Mikhail, another master vampire, had been obsessed with Shai and was simply waiting for her to grow up so that he could play his little games with her. As women who bear a striking resemblance to Shai start dying in horrible ways, Shai is unsure who to trust - her mysterious new lover or the handsome blond man who keeps playing tricks on her?

I enjoyed this book and loved Valentin, the vampire lover, but this "book" is very short. This is a short novella at about 90 pages and I felt that I had barely gotten to know the characters when the book was over. Wilder continues her Shai & Valentin's story through other books in the Shadow Dweller series, but all of them are very brief. Be careful how much you pay for these ebooks as they can end up costing you quite a bit more than they are worth. Still, if you can find a good deal on all 6 of them they are fast, fun romantic reads with some paranormal stuff thrown in.

I ordered this as an e-book and was quite disappointed to find it wasn't a complete novel but a short "trailer" for the first in her Shadowhunters series and "teasers" for the second and third book. Don't waste your money - look for the first, second and third "volumes" which contain the entire novels. There are a total, as of now, six books, but be careful where you buy them. Some of the prices are way too high - search out her website and find out where to get the e-books at a lot lower prices.

3-0 out of 5 stars Undecided
I'm not sure what to think of this book. At no more than 60 pages it's little more than a short story, a teaser. It didn't wholeheartedly engage me, suck me into the characters' world, I was able to get up and leave it without a quam. One might put this down to the 'short story' factor, an intricate, twisting plot, which would have kept glued to my seat would have been a little much for 60 pages worth of story.

All of that said, the story did not make me scoff, neither did it cause me to slap palm to forehead and groan aloud in tolerant disgust (as with so many other vampire and romance books). This is a book I would well consider *killing* for to see it in a larger, expanded version, giving greater life to the characters and challenging the reader with a plot that actually makes them think.

And right now, what I think, is that I might just lay money down for the next instalment, if for no other reason than to cease being undecided.

1-0 out of 5 stars OH, PUHLEEEEEZE!!
Pathetically cliche'...a gaggle of thirtysomething women get together to celebrate a birthday and get drunk and reveal their sexual fantasies to each other. The heroine's fantasy even includes a mysterious stranger, dressed like a pirate, entering her bedroom at nights to ravish her. And when her fantasy comes true, instead of screaming like all bloody hell because there's a towering stranger in her bedroom, she just can't seem to fight back because her body is in control and enjoying it all!. (And when women say "no" we really mean "yes", right?) Give me a break! The only way I could recommend this to anyone is if he/she is looking for a laugh. Thank goodness I've read a lot of better vampire books before getting to this one or I might have been turned off to the genre. There are some great vampire reads out there; this is not one of them.

5-0 out of 5 stars No one writes vampires like J.C. Wilder!

Book Description


Ann Yang, an emotionally stifled medical examiner, is facing her first big case in a Pennsylvania suburb not used to high-profile crime. Ann, who has an obsession for the past, doesn't see things through typical eyes.

The case has her new colleagues thwarted. A powerful and ruthless predator is abducting women and leaving their bodies in fields and stadiums, taunting investigators. And it looks like he's chosen Ann as his ultimate target.

Ann calls on her friend Tony Cole, a retired FBI profiler, for help. Together they track the killer through Doylestown and New Orleans suburbs. Ann begins past-life regressions, and under hypnosis, remembers being killed in several lifetimes--by the same killer. In her home, she finds a diary containing intimate details about the unsolved disappearance of a girl who lived there more than 100 years ago.


As the case boils over, Ann finds herself falling for the easy magnetism and rugged charms of the carpenter remodeling her Victorian home even though she suspects he could be the killer. Edgy, erotic, and full of twists.

Warlock, A Novel of Possession:

Allen Barrow, a shy bank clerk, dresses out of discount stores and has a small penis that embarrasses him. One night at a noisy, popular bathhouse in Manhattan he meets Destry Powars-commanding, vulgar, seductive, successful-who pulls Allen into his orbit and won't let go. Destry lives in a closed, moneyed world that Allen can only glimpse through the smoky windows of popular media and tabloids. From generations of impoverished drifters, Powars has been chosen to learn a secret language based on force, deception, and nerve. But who chose him-and what does he really want from Allen? What are Mr. Powars's dark powers? These are the mysteries that Allen will uncover in Warlock, a novel that is as paralyzing in its suspense as it is voluptuously erotic. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Confusing ¿til the end
This book was not what I was expecting. Or maybe it was, and I just don't know it yet. From the beginning, I just couldn't grasp what was happening in the story. The main character, Allen, is basically a frustrated gay man with a very poor opinion of himself, apparently centered around his small endowment. He is picked up by Destry Powars, a big hairy brute at a bath house who's rough look, vulgarity, and belittlement of Allen just make me wonder "Why?" Allen follows him home basically because he "couldn't say no." Ends up going on a trip with Destry to Switzerland where some pretty wild things happen.

The story just doesn't make sense. The characters are never really flushed out, so you don't know why they are the way they are. They ask questions that are never really answered. There is some mystery and possibly even a little horror thrown in, but it's usually barely touched upon and not fully explored. I mean are we dealing with warlocks, vampires, Satanists, or just some regular folks who follow a troll with some unknown magical powers? There's even a bit of erotica there, but it's not worth the couple paragraphs spent on it, as Allen usually goes on a mind-bending daydream during it so you forget what's going on.

Overall, I think it can be entertaining, but there's a lot better stuff out there.

3-0 out of 5 stars Erotic and suspenseful
Warlock, like many of this author's other works, embraces the spirituality of gay romance through a deftly balanced amalgam of erotica and fantastical themes. Though not as exotic as Angel Lust or as adventurous and fast-paced as Harvest, this particular book is crafted on the premise that horror works best on a subtle, psychological level. It is also a testimony to the maturity that Perry Brass has reached in his writing technique. By eschewing its reliance on fictional locales, the settings of New York and Switzerland and the situations they present compelled me to read on.

From a gay perspective, the characters were not as positive as I would have liked. I suppose that their flaws were simply meant to flesh them out as well as to imbue the story with a sense of humanity (a necessity in this genre). Thus, the characterizations of Allen and Destry were credible yet intriguing. The story was further spiced up by a host of colorful minor roles. Occultwise, howevever, I was never quite rewarded in the way I would have thought. Perhaps, this was the author's intent so that the air of expectancy would not be diminished. From the way Warlock resolves itself, I get the distinct impression that there's a good chance of a sequel.

Perry Brass is a sensualist who seems to achieve his literary goals by incorporating mellifluous and very lyrical depictions of everyday actions into his narrative. The fact that he did not rely on the usual horror cliches enables this tale to keep its contemporary edge while exuding a Lovecraftian aura. Granted, this book is not for everyone. But then, neither is Lovecraft or gay erotica. ... Read more

Andy Black's NecronomicoN 2 carries on where NecronomicoN 1 left off. I guess it's fair to say that if you loved the 1st one (and what's not to love? almost every page is graced with stills showing sex and horror.) you'll be glad there's more, and if you thought the 1st was pretentious there's nothing here to change your mind. Personally I agree with most of the contributors (as with such film-makers as John Waters) that there's more to discover in the movies of H.G. Lewis, Russ Meyer, or Jesus Franco, than in any fancy-pants auteur that the beautiful people might be fawning over at Sundance or Cannes. All of the articles are excellent, but the stand-out is undoubtably the incomparable Mikita Brottman's piece on Polanski's Macbeth and its relation to the Manson murders. (The article is an excerpt from Ms. Brottman's Hollywood Hex--another great book from England's splendid Creation Books.) All in all a fun read, and sometimes (but just sometimes) reading about a Euro-sleaze movie is more fun than watching one. ... Read more

Mapped out on a playing field of ticklish male flesh, My Name Is Rand follows a young man on his search for the ultimate erotic adventure. Betrayed by his own skin into a helplessly eroticized state, he becomes a captive of a bizarre torture camp where men practice extreme tickling. After several near-death experiences he stumbles across a hiding place where several desperate men plot escape while taking physical solace in each other.

Sweatily detailed in its depiction of men driven over the edge, this nightmarish novel is a bondage epic, a horror comic, and a totally original speculation on the nature of time and consciousness. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Welcome to your New Fetish
Wayne Courtois delivers an Odyssey of extreme-bondage and tickle-torture sure to elicit gasps and groans in equal measure. My Name is Rand explores new sexual territory where men are bound and tickled to the point of madness, submitting completely to their master's desires. This goes well beyond the typical S&M scenes you've become accustomed to; Wayne Courtois takes you on a strange and intensely erotic journey you've never yet imagined.

The narrator starts off exploring his unique fetish with a tickle-master met online, but is abducted before he can return home. He is removed to The Compound, a tickle-torture camp where people are literally tickled to death. He is run through a gauntlet of tickling and bondage that leaves him near madness, and then left to face the nemesis of Dred Junior, a psychotic who can mentally tickle you. The narrator stumbles upon a hiding place where other inmates are planning escape, and they take spiritual and sexual solace in one another.

Already becoming a cult classic among foot and tickle fetishists worldwide, My Name Is Rand is a powerful and delirious novel which will introduce you to a whole new world of sex play. Welcome to your new fetish.

5-0 out of 5 stars Rand Rocks!
This novel is a beautifully crafted piece of literature with heartbreakingly real characters and a plot that is fantastic yet grounded. Mr. Courtois is a gifted writer with an ear for real dialogue and a complete understanding of the power of tickling as a tool for torment, as a potently erotic activity and as the ultimate expression of domination. His world is drenched with the most vividly rendered scenes of tickling ever produced. The novel defies easy classification, but admirers of science fiction will be pleased as will students of human nature, for there is deep insight into the dark parts of humanity here. Of course, fans of erotic tickling of men will relish this book as the finest example of its kind in print.

I was bowled over by the sheer force of the writing. Mr. Courtois is a major new force. His writing is elegant, effective and strong. He has a voice. His imagination is amazing and his ability to implement his vision is impressive.

I long for more from this writer.

5-0 out of 5 stars Much better than the online excerpts even suggested
This book contains the most extreme male tickle-torture I've read anywhere - as well as subtle treatment of much bigger ideas than I expected. Terrific prose, overwhelming action, challenging food for thought. Extra-dark, completely relentless, with some "paranormal" tickling in there too (a personal favorite)... and a fair amount of explicit gay sex. Some great plot twists, too. I'm impressed beyond words that this book was written - and published. The torturous possibilities of tickling have been overlooked for far too long. Personally, I bought it despite the sexual content - as written descriptions of tickling go, it's THAT good.

5-0 out of 5 stars Raises the bar for Erotic Fiction
It's more than a riveting look at the erotic world of tickling, it's an excitement-packed, non-stop thriller about a hidden compound where men are abducted and subjected to an assortment of extraordinary tickling scenarios. What could have been a banal bit of erotica dolled up in a silly fantasy is instead a gripping tale of escape, survival and carnal torment. And it's all courtesy of Wayne Courtois' astonishing flair for seamlessly blending purple prose with plot-driven action.

With an individualistic voice that gives erotica a touch of class and raises the bar for his peers, Courtois totally enmeshes you in the lead character's experience. His absorbing imagining of Rand, a trustee at the hidden compound, highlights his skill as a writer with the keen ability to express the unique perspective of someone who'd once been victimized by the denizens of the tortuous compound, but now jadedly aids the victimizers. He creates not only compelling characters, but also torrid tickling situations intermingled with the heart-stopping action.

When you finish reading My Name Is Rand, you shake your head at the writer's ability to instantly invert the real world and pull you so far into it's pages that you devour it with the avidity usually provoked by an epic best-selling thriller. As you journey along with Rand and his daring band of compound escapees you realize that, among the handful of true superstars in erotic fiction, Wayne Courtois is primed to take his place on the throne.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully intense and original
From the gripping first chapter to the surprise ending, this book weaves a wonderfully vivid and sensuous spell.
A riveting exploration of a rare fetish, this first person narrative has real energy and drive. Psychological and metaphysical aspects are skillfully and , yes, surprisingly well blended, Surprising because present day novels, particularly erotic ones, are not known for taking into account the spiritual realm. This one does and the effect is NOT either contrived or forced, but an integral and important part of the story.
This novel is both inspiring and provocative. Rare qualities in any novel, let alone an erotic one. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Boy meets Couple
Semi-gay Peter Keith moves next door to a couple straight out of Kinkyville. Chaz and Muriel are the ideal couple, if by ideal you mean wearing masks, playing games fit for deSade, sharing a young neighboy boy and living the good life.

Keith falls for both of them and makes love to each of them, singularly and together. The games begin casually, a greeting or an invitation to drop over, a telephone call, a furtive vision of kinky domestic life. They pick up steam as the neighbor is caught in the increasingly reckless and wild activites that now include bondage, violence, masks, knives, sex (with both) and that always open invitation to do more.

This is about a lot of very amoral people who wouldn't know right from wrong if it was wrapped up like a present. What was supposed to be a coming of age tale became a kinky, heated, revelatory expose of strange suburban happenings. The ending, though shocking, is almost a denoument.

3-0 out of 5 stars two-and-a-half stars, actually.
Not since Disneyland opened has anything made Orange County so compelling--and it's about time. This most unreal of California milieus merits more than the cynical dismissals of the hip and _FS_ serves up erotic dissonance in heaping spoonfulls of dread and psychosis Orange County style. The story itself you've probably read countless times before--it felt like it to me anyhow--memories of Tartt's _The Secret History_, Fowles' _The Magus_ as well bits of Carver and Gifford came immediately to mind. The speaker is drawn into a web of intrigue and quickly finds himself in over his head. Yadda, yadda. None of the characters have much to recommend themselves, but the novel holds together remarkably well and suffices nicely as a guilty pleasure. The author name-drops endlessly and the cultural references eventually grow tedious without really telling the story; an unfortunate artifact of a the author's art school pedigree?

5-0 out of 5 stars candy for the mouth and ears. exquisite passivity.
Okay-so the cheezy jacket copy lured me in. But once I read the book, I was struck both by the beauty of its prose and the emotional complexity of its characters, not to mention its plot. Bills's main character, Peter Keith, is one of the best depictions of pathological passivity I have read--and unlike other authors who explore this theme (Dennis Cooper, Mary Gaitskill), Peter is likeable and sweet, if at time incredibly irritating. The couple he gets involved with--Muried and Chaz Lambent--brought a woodie to this bisexual reviewer's hog. In all seriousness, I enjoyed this book very much. As a stylist, Bills is non-pareil. I was also rather interested in his portrait of Orange County, particularly the horrid town of Irvine, which is almost a fourth main character in the book. And did I mention that a kitten is integral to the plot? But perhaps best of all, it's ultimately not one of those tedious postmodern pseudo-erotic excursions into text; this is actually a novel, with all the virtues implied in the term. Read it now ...

This is a classic for lovers of dark genre.A fan since the first hot blood release, Deadly after dark carries the trademark of cleverly combining erotica and horror into a collection of short stories.Very readable and recommended.

1-0 out of 5 stars Like a cheap date gone bad
Deadly After Dark is not for the prudish or squeamish. (I must be getting too old to read this kind of stuff.)Basically, I found this book to be a waste of time, adolescent and deeply disturbing with no real purpose except to highlight violence for the sake of violence. This is a waste of paper. I'll use my copy as an example of bad taste.

I loved this book and all of the subsequent ones in the series. The stories are wicked, sexy and refreshing. Many are written by some of the Masters of the short story. I would recommend the whole series to anyone who enjoys a bit of fright with their sex.

3-0 out of 5 stars A Bizarre Mix of Genres along with the Unsafest Sex Ever
Perhaps no published writer has had more fun crisscrossing different genres than Phil Farmer. In this particular volume, he puts a science-fiction overlay on some very traditional gothic horror themes, in the context of a classic detective novel, but don't go thinking you've seen this before. Forget that Farmer's explanations of lycanthrope and vampirism are much further out than anything you've heard previously, because that's not even the tip of the iceberg. What really sets this book apart from the crowd is the infusion of bizarre (often inhuman) sexuality that goes well beyond anything in the annals of science fiction. This isn't just the obligatory sex scene to make a weak book marketable - the wild, sadistic, and often scary sex is almost the main thrust of the book.

Harold Childe isn't exactly the typical hard-boiled private investigator who is so essential to the detective genre, although he's pretty close. But the videotape of his partner's murder is anything but typical, and when he fights through the acid-smog of L.A. to the mansion of a rich eccentric, the reader quickly becomes aware that this is not your father's detective novel. Fans already know that Farmer has a real gift for telling action tales, but how many suspected he was capable of dreaming up such twisted sexual fantasies - many of them terrifying, many of them disgusting, and all of them completely over the top?

The main novel in this book, Image of the Beast, is pretty powerful stuff - a brutal murder, a cynical detective, a misery-laden city, a haunted mansion, extra-terrestrials, deviant sexual behavior - something for everyone, really. By itself, it might rate four stars for sheer audacity if only it had a legitimate ending. Sadly, this story has more loose ends than a shag carpet, and the sequel, originally published as the longish short story "Blown", is just plain silly. Farmer gets away from slam/bang action and the detective format, and starts bringing in references to Byron and Joan of Arc, all to no real purpose.

The three star rating reflects the fact that this book is so unlike anything else this reviewer has ever read, that one might be willing to overlook some of its obvious flaws just on the basis of originality, or perhaps more accurately, audacity. The prudish, the squeamish, and the conventionally logical will probably not like this book at all. Recommended only for adult genre fans who aren't afraid to step through a twisted looking glass.

4-0 out of 5 stars Only Philip Jose Farmer could have written this.
No! This is not new fiction, rather tis an old tome written like no one else could have written it. I love Farmer and have read this duo (more a novel followed by a novella) at least four times. As with so many of Farmer's works, there are plots within the plot. You will discover many truths (at least as defined by Farmer) as you read. Among them: where ghosts come from, how to rape a werewolf, the importance of looking a gift whore in the mouth, and the real story of the holy grail. The sex is truly occult kink at its best (or worst) and mind blowing to say the least. Mr. Farmer's main character is very well written. Some of the side players are weak and a few of them are so weak as to not support their existance in the storyline. My only complaint is that Philip did not see fit to carry on this series. It could have been as good as his World of Tiers novels. If you are an adult who likes a little purple in your life, please read this book.

2-0 out of 5 stars A Out Dated Book By Today's Standards
The book is a little strange and the language is dated (cira 1960's - 1970's).
The story is about takes place sometime in the future, but never fully explains when in the future it takes place in. The story could take place in the 1980's or 2000's, the author never makes it clear to the reader. The sex is extremely softcore and with some references to homosexual acts, the story moves along at a semi-fast clip.
The charaters in the story are a strange assortment of good, bad and fence sitters
IF you can ignore the outdated langage and descriptions and don't mind some extremely (by today's standards) PG rated sex acts, then this book is for you.

5-0 out of 5 stars Must be read to be believed
An underground classic, a melding of sci-fi and erotica, this book is like no other you'll ever read. I read it 20 years ago, lent my second hand copy to someone, and never saw it again. Not for children, prudes, or the squeemish. If you think you've read it all, read this. You'll never forget it. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars As good as Bergstrom's MINA!
Ms. Bergstrom does it again with another exciting vampire novel - this time a continuation of the author's earlier work, "Mina." I wasn't expecting to like "Blood to Blood," as much as Mina, but I did. The author's adept ability to create atmosphere and mood are here, as well as her right-on characterizations of Mina, Jonathan, Arthur, and Van Helsing. Bergstrom stays true to the characters Stoker created, but she lets us get to know them better. On center stage with Mina and her friends is the half-sister of Dracula, Joanna. I don't want to give any of the plot away, so I'll just say that the story is seductive, fast-paced, and suspenseful. Fans of "Mina," "Dracula," and other vampire fiction won't be disappointed.

2-0 out of 5 stars The Dracula Story Continues--Then Where's DRACULA!
Bergstrom's MINA: THE DRACULA STORY CONTINUES was a needless melding of Stoker's brilliant classic with the schmaltz and sub-par eroticism of Anne Rice. With BLOOD TO BLOOD, the author continues Mina's exploration of her libertated sexuality, while trying to decide if she still has a life with her husband. Back at Castle Dracula, the last of the Count's vampire brides, the half-mad Joanna, his own half-sister, ventures out into the world. Grabbing some gold, gems, papers, and a box of grave dirt, she acquires a young, Irish girl as her slave/blood donor/lover. Jonathan Harker starts to dream of her, which Van Helsing takes as a sign she is coming for revenge. Meanwhile, Mina has inherited a small fortune from Dracula's doppelganger, Lord Gance. Independent beyond her wildest dreams, she sets out to start up a charitible organization. Arthur Holmwood, fiance of Dracula's first victim, Lucy Westenra, is still agonizing over having destroyed her. Learning that Joanna has arrived in London, he sets out to learn all about her, eventually falling in love with her. But, Van Helsing has devined Arthur's dangerous scheme, and seeks only to destroy the last of Dracula's hellspawn women. In the end, the whole thing is a mish-mash of soap opera plots, vampire lore, softcore eroticism and lesbian interludes that will certainly please Howard Stern fans. What any of this has to do with DRACULA, though, is beyond me!

5-0 out of 5 stars Horror at its best
The passion that Dracula taught Mina Harker remains deep in her soul although the evil vampire is dead. Once tasting life, Mina needs to escape from her Victorian prison. Her beloved Jonathan fails to emotionally help her because he still broods over Mina having had a lover. Instead, her ex-lover leaves her money so she can explore her new independent spirit. Mina wants reconciliation, but not back to what their relationship once was. As the couple works on their problems, Jonathan begins to have vampiric induced dreams that Van Helsing believes is the calling card of the late Count's sister Joanna Tepes.

With everyone else in the castle dead, the reclusive but lonely Joanna decides to travel to England to settle the score with her brother's killers. Along the way, Joanna picks up a servant girl who becomes more than just a friend. In England, Joanna forgets about her sibling's enemies until a Ripper-like maniac hurts her friend. This provokes a confrontation between the Harkers and Van Helsing on one side and Joanna on the other.

BLOOD TO BLOOD is a fascinating footnote to the Dracula legends. The story occurs six months after the death of Lucy. Elaine Bergstrom turns Victorian England and Transylvania into descriptive images that provide an intriguing look for readers. Ms. Bergstrom centers her tale on prejudicial profiling as not all vampires are alike with individuals needing to use sound judgment to form opinions based on facts not hearsay or stereotyping. Supernatural lovers, especially the vampire crowd, will have a great time reading this fantastic horror novel.

4-0 out of 5 stars Daughters of darkness
I never imagined myself that I would buy a book of erotic vampire stories but I have. Several years ago I saw Kim Deal reading Pam Keesey's book in the pages of a magazine. I admit I was curious about the book being the huge vampire fan that I am. I try to avoid the more cartoonish, horror vampire novels that plagues the book market (i.e Tanya Huff). I found a copy of the book at a local bookstore and decided to get it, not so much for the titilation of the sexual depictions described in the book but more from a feminist point of view in terms of female empowerment. In the introduction, Pam explores female empowerment through mythology, namely the supernatural as in vampires and other demons. I was tired of reading the same ridiculous cheesy vampire novel where women were usually the helpless victims or the sultry demon. I was more interested in reading stories of female vampires and how they differentiate from their male counterparts. I thought the stories were interesting to say the very least. And they are definitely different. One of the more interesting stories in the book was "Lousiana: 1850" by Jewelle Gomez. This particular story wasn't something I was expected. Normally I am used to reading about vampires who kill without prejudice and without conscience. Gilda was far from any vampire character I have read in any book. She didn't get off on killing people, let alone kill her victims. She merely would take a drink from her victim and leave. "Lilith" is more in tuned with any modern vampire novel where the vampire's intentions is completely sinister. The vampire seduces her victim and vamps her. The one story I didn't enjoy was "Carmilla" which honestly I found to be a complete bore. I have tried to read it in its entirety but I could not muster up the energy to finish the story, let alone get into it. Otherwise I enjoyed the majority of the stories in "Daughters of Darkness" (as well as in "Dark Angels"). If anything, Pam Keesey's books weren't entirely intended for titilation because the stories certainly underline female empowerment or feminism in some sort of way. As a vampire fanatic, I enjoyed Pam's books. They are a big guilty pleasure of mine.

3-0 out of 5 stars TWO GREAT ONES!
Of course, "Carmilla" is the queen of lesbian vampire stories; its subtlety is something to savor. But I must confess, I really loved "O Captain, My Captain." Its sci-fi angle (interstellar travel) is well-researched; its protagonist is a very plausible, likable young woman; and its love scenes are DELICIOUS. These two stories alone make the book worth buying.

5-0 out of 5 stars An Important Contribution for Hard Core Fans of Queer Horror
For those of us interested in the Queer Horror Genre, Daughters of Darkness is yet another of Keesey's exceptional contributions. First, the editorial introduction provides more insight into the genre, a map to seeing more between the lines of the stories -- in what has become a rarity in writing about literature -- an easy to read, accessible format. I actually _learned_ about what I was reading in the stories that followed. Second, the book provides an outlet for what are historically and contemporarily undervalued authors of meaningful horror stories, all respectful of the positive contribution of lesbian imagery and ideas in literature. No, this isn't an erotic pulp novel. It is also NOT the usual feminist PC approach in which all lesbian vampires are made out to be evil or pornographic characters. Instead, sexy and empowering images of lesbian vampires is celebrated in another luscious volume.

2-0 out of 5 stars Should have been SO MUCH BETTER!!!
How can you miss with a book about lesbian vampires?!!! This should EASILY have been both scary and intensely erotic --- but it was NEITHER!!! Problem #1: Too many P.C. authors, trying to make their lesbian vampires champions of the political plight of lesbian women --- BORING!!! Problem #2: Very poor mixing of terror and sensuality, which like terror and humor can very often mix together very well! Problem #3: Isn't the whole vampire thing usually portrayed as an older evil guy rapaciously pursuing innocent, virginal young women? So what's so hard about replacing the older guy with a beautiful slightly older woman, having her seducing pretty young women with or without their consent? No, this book was a failure because Ms. Kesey tried to go the politically correct route, and the result is a disappointing, very un-erotic collection of so-so stories.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great collection of lesbian vampire stories
I really enjoyed this book a lot. I read a lot of vampire stories and this book really stood out above all the others. Not only was the original lesbian vampire story "Carmilla" included, but a whole slew of other interesting stories too. ... Read more
