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.

You don’t have to be an evil genius to figure that superheroes are hot, and not just because of the perfect bodies clad in spandex (or leather, or stylized body armor). Film adaptations of favorite superheroes remain on the rise and comic book conventions are among the best-attended gatherings in the world.

But as comic book creators and artists have been trumpeting for decades, comic books are not for kids. Although the battles of good versus evil and of archetypal iconic figures in struggle tug at our primal, childhood selves, these same primal urges lead us to exploring the erotic side of heroes–and villains. How could the stylized physiques and skin-tight costumes (think of the bodacious bosom of Wonder Woman or the Batman’s codpiece) common in the milieu NOT lead to erotic thoughts and explorations?

Like a Mask Removed, volume one: Erotic Tales of Superheroes presents seven stories ranging from vibrant and lively romps reminiscent of the colorful comic book pages they are inspired by to modern experimental literary styles.

Then, in the second volume of Like A Mask Removed, you will be treated with five new, previously unpublished, original stories of the smoldering dynamics found between noble, honorable, well-meaning superheroes and their provocative nemeses. Whether courted during a peace-keeping mission, a chance meeting while off duty, an abduction, or an infiltration into head-quarters, these superheroes find that they are all too human and the temptations offered by sexy supervillains are much too powerful to resist.

The concept of time travel is an understandably attractive notion to the entire human race. If we could master it, we might find it possible to undo our past mistakes and hold on to the one who got away; we could freeze or lengthen that most perfect moment of climax with just the right lover; or perhaps we could sneak a peek into the future to see how long our new love and passion will really last.

In the past, present, and future, lovers of all kinds– straight, gay, or otherwise– traverse time to come together in Like The Hand of Time. And whether they’re looking to meet a long admired historical figure, to help themselves get the girl, to heal past wounds, or even just to pass the time, the characters in this e-book explore the intimate ways in which sex, love, and time all intersect.

Like The Hand of Time explores time travel intimately through seven all-new diverse and unique lenses. In the past, present, or future, lovers of all kinds– straight, gay, or otherwise– traverse time and come together to meet a long admired historical figure, help themselves get the girl, heal past wounds, and occasionally even just to pass the time in the sexiest way possible. Edited by Bethany Zaiatz, Like The Hand of Time includes stories from Angela Caperton, Julie Cox, Gayle C. Straun, Neil James Hudson, Monique Poirier, Kit Russell, and Nobilis Reed.

Sex and spies seem to go together like hands and leather gloves. From the fictional secret agent and womanizer, James Bond, to the countless provocative depictions of real-life accused spy and exotic dancer, Mata Hari, eroticism and espionage are a natural fit in the public consciousness. It might be blatant romanticism of a thankless, dangerous job, those of us who will never lead a double life are welcome to fantasize how seduction and sex could be used by master spies. Like Slipping Undercover features ten new, previously unpublished stories of erotic “spy-fi” from authors A.C. Wise, Chris Amies, T.C. Mills, A.J. Viggen, Shawn Erin, Eric Del Carlo, Kaysee Renee Robichaud, Reina Delacroix, Julian Oliver-Fenn, and Max Erica Scott.

Each story explores varied uses for sex in the field of espionage: as distraction or weapon, as recruitment or rapport between handler and asset, and in some of these futuristic tales, sex is even used as a means of transferring information and sharing secrets. Ultimately, whether the spies in this anthology are uncovering vast conspiracies by corrupt governments and organizations, exploiting an enemy’s sole weakness, or growing disenchanted with their own cause or methods, each sensual and action-packed story features the struggle to maintain the tenuous balance between intimacy and intrigue—a balance that is necessary in lives wrought with secrets.

A winner and two runners-up were chosen. N.K. Jemisin’s “The Dancer’s War” shows us the sensuous magic not of a stock fantasy medieval Europe, but of an Africa that never was. Bernie Mojzes “Ink” combines H.P. Lovecraft and Raymond Chandler into a surprisingly soulful story of sexual transformation. And our winner, “Ota Discovers Fire,” by Vinnie Tesla pokes gentle fun at all the traipsing into exotic lands depicted in fantasy quests. Sometimes the traveler you meet on the road is nothing like what you expect.

Featuring stories by Frances Selkirk, Elizabeth Schechter, Kierstin Cherry, Angela Caperton, Sacchi Green, Kal Cobalt, Elizabeth Reeve, Kathleen Tudor, Monique Poirier, Sunny Moraine, Clarice Clique, Nobilis Reed, David Sklar, Michael M. Jones, David Hubbard, Shanna Germain, N.K. Jemisin, Bernie Mojzes, and Vinnie Tesla.

“This brilliantly imaginative compilation of short, steamy tales of contemporary and period fantasy, fairytale, future dystopia, and space opera, chosen from Circlet’s e-book anthologies by a popular vote of readers, succeeds both as speculative fiction and as erotica. ”
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Praise for Circlet Press:

“When it comes to delivering a strong fix of sharp future erotica, you can rely on Circlet Press every time.”
—Skin Two

“Though Circlet’s works span galaxies, time, and gender, there is one thing the stories have in common—they are stirringly sexy.”
—Libido

“It seems less an act of bravery and more a necessity to publish works of erotic sci-fi and fantasy. Our applause then should be directed at Cecilia Tan and Circlet Press, who are filling this need with some of the finest erotic fiction in any genre.” —Taste of Latex

The editors at Circlet Press present a cherry-picked collection of only the best of erotic fantasy and science fiction. From over 300 entries, they have chosen the top 16, including the stunning winner by Allison Lonsdale “Vaster Than Empires.” Vylar Kaftan’s “Fulgurite” and Jason Rubis’s “Now I Live On The Street of Women” were the runner-ups. The stories in the anthology span many genres and sexualities, at times defying such categories. Entries were judged on writing quality, originality, and eroticism, the three virtues Circlet Press values most in all publications.

“Circlet Press publisher Tan (Best Fantastic Erotica) and debut editor Zaiatz present a variety of erotic tales both sensual and brutal. … The relationships are as varied as the settings, and the best stories are those with a strong emotional core.”
