Fans of Circlet Press know what it’s like working here… or think they do. It’s one big phantasmagorical orgy with vampires and shapeshifters and ice demons and androids and humans all engaging in a never-ending stream of combinations. Always willing,always fun, always hot. The reality of creating our stories may be different, but you don’t want to hear about that, so we’ve created a collection that feeds the fantasy. Here’s where our ideas come from if we were actually living inside of a Circlet Press story and now you get to join in.
Here people have to live out the adventures before they can write about them, whether supernatural or science fiction, and with that special kick that you’ve come to expect from Circlet. After reading Like a Circlet Editor, you’ll never read you other Circlet books in the same way. What if they were really true, too?
Includes stories from D. Mark Alderton, J.H. Peregrine, Annabeth Leong, Alex Picchetti & H.B. Kurtzwilde, Elizabeth Schechter, and Kit Harding.

From “The Intern” by D. Mark Alderton
She showed up at the Circlet estate eager for the job. Working on a graduate degree in the publishing field, a chance to intern at Circlet Press was an exciting opportunity to work with the top writers and editors in erotic science fiction and fantasy. She hoped they deemed her worthy of the position.
Pressing the button to the side of the massive oaken doors, she heard a gong resound deep within the recesses of the house, although the word “house” hardly did justice to the medieval manor. Within moments one of the doors swung wide, and a tall woman in a smart leather outfit bid her enter. Her long, ebony hair was pulled back in a sort of pony tail that cascaded down the ties of her outfit. Her severe look was belied by her smile and gracious manner.
“Welcome to Circlet Press,” she said. “I am Mrs. Stanford, and I’ll be conducting the orientation. And you are...?”
“Susan,” said the grad student, “Susan Chambers.”
“Ah, that will be confusing,” replied Mrs. Stanford. “Most of our interns are named Jennifer. I hope you don’t mind if, for convenience sake, we call you that.”
“I suppose that’s okay,” replied Susan/Jennifer, not wanting to blow the opportunity before it even began.
“Very good then. Let me show you around Circlet. You know, of course, we are the premiere purveyors of science fiction and fantasy erotica, specializing in alternative sexualities. So long as it is loving and consensual among adults there’s little that we won’t explore.”
“Yes, indeed. It’s why I was eager to get a position here.”
Mrs. Stanford gave a look through slitted eyes and then nodded. She led the young woman down a hallway lit by elaborate sconces and took her into what seemed like a massive bedroom. “This is the office of our publisher and editor-in-chief and thus the nerve center of Circlet Press. Let me see if she’s in…”
Dimly, through the darkened room, Susan/Jennifer could make out a large canopied bed with what seemed to be a trapeze hanging from the top. She could hear several voices, one of whom was clearly in command, “Both of you kneel before me and pleasure me with your tongues. Take turns if you have to, but punishment will be severe if I’m kept waiting. I haven’t come in more than an hour and I have no more time to waste.”
The grad student felt a hand at her back. It was Mrs. Stanford. “She’s in conference right now.”
