9780061057823: Sirens and Other Daemon Lovers - Magical Tales of Love and Seduction

Prepare to be seduced by powerful magic -- the sorcery of lust, need, and sensuality. Multiple award-winners Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling have gathered together twenty-two tales of unearthly temptations wickedly concocted by some of today's most potent literary conjurers -- including Neil Gaiman, Jan Yolen, Michael Swanwick, and Joyce Carol Oates. Here are stories of incubi and succubi, of forbidden fruits harvested in erotic gardens, of pleasures that persist beyond death. So heed the sirens' song. Lie back, relax, and submit to the darkest delights you have ever experienced.

Review:

Obsessions, lust, passion, and ecstacy are the subjects of this excellent anthology edited by the talented, award-winning, and prolific team of Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling. With uninhibited stories from heavy-hitters such as Joyce Carol Oates, Neil Gaiman, Pat Murphy, Jane Yolen, and Michael Swanwick, Sirens and Other Daemon Lovers won't fail to capture your attention and hold it. These authors and many more take readers on a journey to the boundaries of love and sex, jumping freely into the abyss of magical fascination and strange desire. Highlights include Oates's Oedipal story of a teenage sex object, Kelley Eskridge's tale of a wanderer who only finds release and love in the heart of violence, and Tanith Lee's look inside Little Red Riding Hood's secret fantasies.
