Carnal Machines: Steampunk Erotica

Sold by Simon and Schuster
3

The Victorians wrote some of the best and most enduring erotica. For such a tightly-laced age, people spent a lot of time thinking about things carnal. Jules Verne, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Mary Shelley, H.G. Wells, et al enthralled us with their visions of new possibilities. The rich and slightly decadent visuals of the steam age lend themselves perfectly to the new carnality of post-punk era. And, of course, what is repressed will be even more exciting once the corset is unlaced. Steampunk, even without sex, is erotic; with sex, it’s over-the-top hot. A widowed lady engineer invents a small device that can store the energy from sexual frustration and convert it to electricity to help power a home. Teresa Noelle Roberts shows us what it can do, confronted with sexual fulfillment. What volume of steampunk would be complete without a tale of sailing ships and the men who sail them? If your taste runs to sexy pirates in space, Poe Von Page will delight you with the mutinous crew of the Danika Blue and their new captain.

Then there’s the very special room on the top floor in the House of the Sable Locks, a brothel where sexually discriminating men go to have their fantasies fulfilled. Even if a man daren’t put those fantasies into words, Elizabeth Schechter’s “Succubus” will give the madam all the information she needs with which to make her clients happy. There are brothels, flying machines, steam-powered conveyances, manor houses, spiritualist societies. The following stories afford intelligently written, beautifully crafted glimpses into other worlds, where the Carnal Machines won’t fail to seduce you, get you wet or make you hard so, lie back, relax; a happy ending is guaranteed.

Or, lounging back and commanding them to read to you." –Laura Antoniou, author of The Killer Wore Leather "The Big Book of Domination by D. L King is an anthology of short erotic stories about BDSM and the Dominants behind them. These stories will get your heart pumping and your mind titillated. Not all females like to submit, just as not all males like to Dominate. Then there are those who enjoy being both the Dominant and the submissive, depending on their mood and who their partner is. Just as there are a wide variety of Dom(me)s and subs, the stories within this book are very diverse in the way they are written and presented. Each short gave just enough background to not leave you wondering how the particular story came to be, yet at the same time didn’t give all the story away. There were even some which I read that left me wanting more from the author and for them to make the story into a full-length novel. For those of you who enjoy erotic short stories that involve BDSM and the Dominant/submissive relationship that comes into play, or even those who just want a taste of what could be involved in these kinds of relationships, I would highly recommend picking up this book and giving it a read." –Night Owl Book Reviews

Ebenezer Scarlet, reclusive miser, has nothing but contempt for Christmas and his fellow human being. He cares for no one and no one cares for him except, perhaps, his niece, Elise. Never having married, he rattles around alone, friendless, in his big, Riverside Drive mansion.
 
One night, after firing his long-time housekeeper because she dared to ask for a raise, he goes to bed, only to be awakened by his old dead friend, Sherman Tindall, who tells him he will be visited by three spirits and he’d better do what they say or things could get unpleasant.
 
Ebenezer is awakened later by a bizarre waif; a Twiggy look-alike from the sixties. She binds him, using and humiliating him. Her orgasms force him to remember his past and how he became the miserable person he is today.  The second spirit picks up where the first left off. An elegant French woman, dressed in red latex, she brings him many gifts, some for external wear and others—not. She takes him on a journey to witness the lives of people close to him, demanding his attention when he waivers or disappoints her.
 
The spirits are not gentle with him and he is worn out by the time the third spirit visits him. She is faceless, frightening and unknowable, dressed in black rubber. She punishes him mercilessly and directs her leather minions to use him roughly, all the while forcing upon him visions of what will be.
 
He awakens Christmas Eve morning, a new man. Still bound and sporting the bruises gifted to him by the spirits. Can the future be changed? Can he become the man he was meant to be?
