Blood Fruit: 02/09/13

Blood Fruit edited by James E.M. Rasmussen is a collection of eleven queer, horror, short stories. A lot of them have a paranormal aspect to them as well as the erotica.

The stories all share an element of dangerous hook ups where the promise of sex comes with a price. The encounters are usually between a human and something that appears human but either isn't or is undead.

It's a relatively quick read. One could read a story a night before bed or plow through the entire collection over a lazy afternoon.

The stories are:

  • "The Lure of Dangerous Woman" by Shanna Germain
  • "A Different Kind of Monster" by T.A. Moore
  • "Just Past Winter" by Nathan Sims
  • "Hemophobia" by Trent Roman
  • "The Diarist" by Mark Silcox
  • "After All" by Laramie Dean
  • "Happy Anniversary" by Stephen Osborne
  • "Tombstone" by Raymond Yeo
  • "Captive Magic" by Garry McLaughlin
  • "Hollow" by Jamie Freeman
  • "For Her Eyes" by Quinn Smythwood
