Funded through a Kickstarter campaign run in 2017– the year of Circlet’s 25th anniversary– Superlative Speculative Erotica features stories voted on by the Kickstarter and Patreon supporters and reflects many of the genres published by Circlet Press: a little cyberpunk, a little high fantasy, a touch of horror, some superheroes, a bit of space opera, some paranormal… What unites these stories is their quality.

The anthology, like the cohort of authors and staff of Circlet Press itself, features characters who identify as lesbian, gay, genderqueer, bisexual, trans, and heterosexual. The erotic activities expressed within the stories cover a similar variety, though it’s not an identical match: a gay male author can write a lesbian witch who has sex with a gender-changing demon. What label do you put on that? We call it… superlative speculative erotica.

Here’s a little taste of the very first story: Annabeth Leong’s “Bete Noir:”

For a while, Beauty and I made each other invincible. She relished every beastly part of me, and so I found myself trusting her with anything and everything—even secrets I hid while I was still a lady.

New Book: A Beastly Affair: Erotic Stories of Beauty and the Beast

$3.99 ebook
ISBN 978-1-61390-188-5
40,304 words

Formats :

If you thought the end of Beauty and the Beast was awesome–you know, when the Beast we’ve all fallen in love with turns into some boring ol’ human–then you’ve picked up the wrong book. The stories in this book are about beastliness, as well as beauty, and the fragility and glamour of both.

“Bête Noire” by Annabeth Leong is a Western about survival, revenge, and the kind of love that hurts you while it shapes you. “The Day the Mirror Told the Truth” by Neil James Hudson takes us down a rabbit hole where “Beauty” is a drug, and its use is both thoroughly understandable and utterly unforgivable. “Bed and Breakfast” by Sita Bethel starts with an accident, and becomes an intricate, often funny, dance of misunderstanding and unbridled lust. Rose P. Lethe writes “Victim Beyond Recall” like a seduction, drawing you in slowly and inexorably until you, like Poppy, are so deep in danger that you can’t escape, even if you wanted to. “Outcast” by TJ Minde is a simple story about two people falling in love in spite of the odds, and it features a bookworm farmer, and lots of man-on-man-beast action. Finally, after waltzing through our romance, and sliding down a rainbow of sexuality, we end up in “Deflowered” by Avery Vanderlyle. No spoilers, but it’s silly and hot and you won’t be disappointed.

A Beastly Affair: Erotic Stories of Beauty and the Beast
If you thought the end of Beauty and the Beast was awesome--you know, when the Beast we've all fallen in love with turns into some boring ol' human--then you've picked up the wrong book. Beauty often seems unhappy about the trade-off too, and we all know why: we were just as drawn in as Beauty, just as enamored, just as thrilled by our own fear, and the Beast's strangeness. The stories in this book are written about beastliness, as well as beauty, and the fragility and glamour of both. The characters change, drastically and violently, and the love and lust they feel for each are defined by these changes, not felt in spite of them.

 

New Book! Journey to the Center of Desire: Erotic Jules Verne!

$3.99 ebook
ISBN: 978-1-61390-184-7

Formats: :

Erotic stories in the worlds of Jules Verne, gathered together by the editor who also brought you books of erotic Sherlock Holmes, H.P. Lovecraft, and several volumes of steampunk erotica…!

Verne’s books feature daring, intelligent men facing danger and overcoming obstacles in the name of scientific discovery. Journey to the Center of Desire tells the stories of people who love the adventurers: the ones left behind, or carried helplessly along, or are otherwise affected by these harebrained schemes.

In “Lunacy” by Jean Roberta, based on From the Earth to the Moon, two brave and daring women struggling in a man’s world come up with a brilliant–and ridiculous–idea to win their freedom and future life together. Luckily for them, great men can still be made into fools by beautiful women with a plan. In Annabeth Leong’s “Journey to the Disappearing Sea,” Axel, from Journey to the Center of the Earth, is forced to realize that his precious porcelain doll of a fiancée has her own hopes and dreams and strengths and they will not be hidden any more. In Corey Reid’s “The Unresolved Wager,” (based on Around the World in Eighty Days) Phileas Fogg’s friends Aouda and Passepartout make a bet to see who can teach the man they both love that living well requires paying attention to your friends… and having lots of orgasms. In “Poulp Friction” by Evadare Volney, we learn how deep the friendship between M. Aronnax and his loyal Conseil (of Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea) actually is, and that Captain Nemo’s rebellious nature and technological acumen extended to much more personal matters than we were led to believe.

Includes:

  • “Lunacy” by Jean Roberta
  • “Journey to the Disappearing Sea” by Annabeth Leong
  • “The Unresolved Wager” by Corey Reid
  • “Poulp Friction” by Evadare Volney

New Book: For the Love of a Soldier, edited by Kristina Wright

$6.99 ebook
ISBN: 978-1-61390-179-3
188 pages

Formats: :

Sixteen stories of passion with soldiers, sailors, pilots, and men (and women) of war. When you love someone in the military, erotic opportunities can few or far between. These authors, veterans of the erotica and romance writing world, turn their pens to the subject with insightful and sizzling portrayals of those in (and out of…) uniform.

Edited by award-winning author Kristina Wright, who is married to a Lieutenant Commander in the U.S. Navy, For the Love of a Soldier is filled with sexy, romantic stories by some of the top authors in the erotic romance genre. Cat Johnson, Victoria Janssen, Lucy Felthouse, Sidney Bristol, and 12 other talented writers reflect on the lives, loves, and sacrifices of men and women in uniform and answer the provocative question: What would you do for the love of a soldier?

As editor Kristina Wright writes in her introduction, “When I married my sailor many years ago…the message was clear: duty to military service comes before duty to marriage. Moments. Hours. Days. Occasionally, weeks… That’s how romances with military lovers are measured—in the smallest of increments, because no time together is ever guaranteed.” The result is red-hot reunions and no-holds-barred passion in the precious time that is shared.

Nobilis strikes again! LIVE AUDIO from #porncamp!

Nobilis Erotica, proud attendee of the 2016 Circlet Writers Retreat, was kind enough to record the round table reading at #porncamp. With the microphone dangling from its stand like (as the other attendees noted) a pendulous “robot dick”, and the various laptops propped up on a carpeted cat tree, Nobilis captured a few minutes at a time of sizzling-hot nerdy smut.

Warning: May void the warranty on a stale sex life.

The punks and rebels of Maker culture have arrived to take sex apart and rewire it into thrilling new forms. They know that skill is sexy. They know the heady power of taking things apart just to see the insides. They know how to get what they want.

Whether building makeshift spacecrafts to fly into unknown astronomical phenomena or staying closer to home and breaking orgasm into programmable parts, these characters tamper when they’re not supposed to, kiss plastic, and involve soldering irons in their foreplay. In the process, they fight corruption, choose who and how to love, and create erotic possibilities both playful and profound.

Edited by Annabeth Leong, and featuring stories by Lillian Marguerite, Renata Piper, Moxie Marcus, TS Porter, Eric Del Carlo, and Kelly Rose Pflug-Back.

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.
