The editors of The Penguin Book of Modern Fantasy by Women join forces again, this time turning their selective eyes to more earthy considerations. Here are 31 tales, spanning years and encompassing six continents, arranged in chronological order. With a compilation that includes such diverse authors as Edith Wharton and Kathy Acker, it's a safe bet that each reader will find some of these tales titillating, others curious and still others repulsive. Among the more intriguing offerings is Danish author Siv Holm's "I, a Woman," in which a woman, choosing multiple fantasies over conventional marriage, posits that civilization and humanity are polar opposites. In Svetlana Boym's "Romances of the Era of Stagnation," an emigre returns to Russia, wading through bureaucracy while queuing for information on two former loves. The adulteress in Elizabeth Cook's "Billets Doux," finding the mark of a wife on her lover's person, competitively decides to leave her own. The curious entries tend to focus on fetishes: Czech-born Iva Pekarkova's "Truck Stop" ends with a virtual paean to sperm; Yuan Ch'iung Ch'iung's "A Lover's Ear" explores the erotic trust necessary for cleaning a beloved's ears.
