Taken from Scoobs-buddy's GLBT bookbox.

According to the blurb on the back, this is a reissue edition, with two novellas in addition to the previous stories. (I looked up the earlier edition on Amazon and found that I like the cover of this edition better, so it's a win all around {grin}.)

As with most anthologies, I found this one uneven, but it did have some high points. The majority of stories were basic erotic-scenario tales: simple setups in which the characters meet and have sex, with little if any characterization or plot. I realize that plots and characters are optional - and maybe even a drawback! - for many readers of erotic stories; they just want to get to it {wry grin}. But I like a bit more of a framework myself, and some of the stories here stood out: James Lincoln's "A Season of Pleasure," Tim Scully's "Geometrical Figures," Peter Gilbert's "Coming on Line" [this one folded in a science-fiction component and a good deal of humor], and David Laurents' "A Fear of Pleasure" [a riff on "A Christmas Carol"].
