Guilty Pleasures and Other Dark Delights

An international anthology of dark erotic drabbles (100 words) and double drabbles (200 words). Includes the novella ‘Dolls’ by the UK’s Ramsey Campbell and other ‘extras’ including a couple of longer stories and some inter-related drabbles, plus some dark erotic illustrations! Definitely adult themed, not suitable for children! With illustrations and other extras including the discussion “On Ramsey Campbell’s ‘Scared Stiff’ by S.T. Joshi”, a discussion “On Sex and Horror”. Edited by Steve Dillon, ex-President of the Australian Horror Writers Association and series editor of the Things in the Well series of anthologies, and stories from award-winning and emerging writers!

Available in paperback as well but Amazon haven’t linked it to the Kindle version (at the time of this post) so you will have to search separately for the paperback.
