Ultimate Decadence

Ever since I read Mil Millington's hilarious introduction to this book, the phrase 'ecstatic syncope' has been rolling around in my head. I am angry that I didn't get to invent it, but I am certainly the opposite of angry that I get to be in this terrific collection which, if you weren't already aware, is in aid of the MacMillan cancer charity.

Many famous and wondrous names can be found inside the covers - Rachel Kramer Bussel, Karen Krizanovich, Elizabeth Coldwell, Jeremy Edwards, Maxim Jakubowski, Madeline Moore, to name just a few. And it's all held together at the seams by the magical sexy glue of editor, Emily Dubberley.

She has done a grand job. To get your hands on this anthology of 'detonator-cap short stories', surf on down to the Xcite Books website right here - it's available in print and as a PDF download - ooh, how modern!


  1. Hey, you may not have coined "ecstatic syncope," but you *did* coin "smutoliloquy"!

  2. I'm on my way to get a copy! Congratulations, hon!

  3. Heh, guilty as charged, Jeremy. I know you're a fellow lover of extreme word manipulation (though I tend to go waaaay beyond the limits of taste and decency, which I'm sure you never would).

    And yay, Charlotte! I hope you enjoy it!

  4. Hey Justine, just got my contributor's copy and I LOVE "Blind Man's Buff." I felt like I was right there hearing, smelling, tasting, touching, but not, of course, seeing ;-).

  5. Squee, Donna, thanks for those very kind words! I am so excited to see you here!
