Launched last year with a provocative volume that sold more than 30,000 copies worldwide in less than six months, editor Maxim Jakubowski's annual series continues with its all-new, totally absorbing and scintillating 2002 edition. Out of thousands of exciting possibilities, Jakubowski has chosen the year's very best forty-five erotic stories by new as well as established talents in the field—among them Poppy Z. Brite, M. Christian, Neil Gaiman, Susannah Indigo, Emma Kaufman, Marilyn Jaye Lewis, Kathryn Ptacek, Lawrence Schimel, Hubert Selby, Jr., Simon Shepperd, and Matt Thorne. Representing erotic writing from six continents and thus providing sexy and sexual adventures of a global scope, the stories in the Mammoth Book of Best New Erotica nonetheless share a standard of excellence and elegance in their explorations of desire, lust, carnality, and passion that are guaranteed to tease and please even the most knowledgeable readers in exquisite ways. So be enticed by Andrew L. Wilson's "The Afternoon of a Venetian Chambermaid" or what unfolds in "The Back of the Store" by Nola Summer, or Cara Bruce's pursuit of "The Perfect O" or the extravagances Ian Philips imagines for "The Devil and Mrs. Faust."
