Garden of the Perverse: Fairy Tales for Twisted Adults
Sage Vivant, M. Christian
Running Press, Mar 28, 2006 - Fiction - 368 pages
We all grew up with weird tales from the Brothers Grimm, the charming Disney stories, and the other childhood rhymes and verses. But even when we first heard them, we questioned the obscure motivations of the principal characters. Our curious minds wondered why a smart girl with a red hood would wander into the forest alone or what circumstances would force a woman to live in a shoe. Now that we're all grown, we know that sex often explains the seemingly inexplicable — and that's what writers show us in this delightfully twisted volume of alternative fables and fairy tales. Rather than play with existing tales, Garden of the Perverse is a showcase for the delightfully wicked imaginations of erotica's top authors as they create new and wholly original myths and fables. Though reminiscent in flavor and style to traditional fairy tales, these stories wander into new and unique lands of surreal eroticism, exploring sensual and fetish dynamics in a diverse scope of fantastic places, bizarre creatures and adventures. Garden of the Perverse captures the imagination with as much story craft as eroticism, and gives free rein to these talented writers with their brand of new fairy tales to tell.
