By Emmanuelle de Maupassant The most 'disturbing' of the tales in the Mammoth Book Of Best New Erotica 13 is Anna Lidia Vega Serova's refreshingly original 'Cancer'. It takes the reader to a far darker place than most tales dare. Its strength lies in its honesty, being unafraid to explore the compulsion of a fetish, however repugnant.
By Lisa Etherson When I got given this book to review, my heart sank as short stories have to be my most despised form of writing, but actually for erotica, it would appear it’s just right. The stories in this book are brilliantly written, as they should be. Just because the writing is about sex and sexuality, doesn’t mean we should compromise on the literal content.
