The Best of Best American Erotica 2008

The best of the best

The hottest of the hot


To mark its fifteenth anniversary, the top-selling erotica series achieves a scorching new climax with a special edition showcasing standout stories from the entire series as well as never before published pieces -- plus interviews with the authors and, for the first time, a hot and edgy piece from Susie Bright herself.

In Susie Bright's own contribution, "Story of O Birthday Party," she recounts her lover's elaborately orchestrated birthday gift: a re-creation of Pauline Réage's classic S/M tale with Susie at the center of the action. Joe Maynard enters a love/hate relationship with a two-million-dollar sex toy in "Fleshlight." Greta Christina's "Are We Having Sex Now or What?" asks the provocative question of what defines authentic sexual connection and experience.

Thoroughly electrifying -- and thrillingly eclectic -- the 2008 edition promises to open new doors with its exhilarating, equal-opportunity approach to erotic writing. Straight or gay, dominant or submissive, romantic or sadistic, Bright's selections run the gamut -- and push all the right buttons.

    This book was something of a disappointment. I didn't realize when I bought it (yes, I bought it, paid full price for it, in fact, at a locally owned bookstore) that it reprinted several stories from ...

  • The Carrion Librarian

    I found that because of the nature of a "best of" anthology, it fell into the trap of trying to please everyone. So while some of the stories were hot, the majority of the book was decidedly not what ...

    I just finished this book and I must say I was left a little disappointed. It started off great, the first few stories got my blood rushing and made me feel good then the middle totally fell flat on i...

    It's the last year that (Susie) will be editing the series. I'm a little sad. I bought this book yesterday at the Hawthorne Street Powells - read the first two stories, and then lent the book to some...

    One of the writers in the book said the reason for erotica is to make you jack off, this didn't make me jack off, but it did leave me with a constant burning in my loins. I don't think I've ever been ...

  • Sonni Soto

    A great collection of tales, a little something for everyone. What I love most about it is that it proves that erotica can be literature too. Just because it's sexy or risque doesn't mean that it can'...

    I read this because Susie Bright helped edit/publish it, and for the most part I enjoyed it. There were a few things I wasn't entirely interested or comfortable with as a reader, so I skipped over the...

    A strong collection of widely disparate stories. Bright's foreward itself is a great read, and helps to inform some of the editorial choices she made when putting this collection together. I picked it...

    This anthology was actually a nice surprise after the last few daysโ€™ read. I found no stupid metaphors, and the stories ranged from the humorous to the metaphysically scary. I particularly enjoyed โ...
