Call the Midwife

Look at me - I'm like a proud midwife! Look what those babies have done!

No less than three of the stories I was involved with choosing and editing for Geek Love have been accepted for reprint in The Mammoth Book of Best New Erotica 13 - edited by Maxim Jakubowski and out at the end of this year (or possibly the start of 2015).

The authors and stories that so thoroughly deserve this honour are:

Kirsty Logan - The Purpose of Tongues (a Japanese coffeeshop f/f)
Jesse Bullington - Porn Enough at Last  (a post-apocalyptic manga-loving threesome)
Haralambi Markov - Pages and Playthings (dystopian superhero group craziness)

I'm so glad that Geek Love has received some recognition for the frankly awesome writing talent that went into it. Three out of forty-five stories (and it was nearly four, but one author declined) from a single anthology is a very good proportion indeed. Maxim always leans toward the literary in his erotica, and his choices are spot-on.

Go Geeks!!
