Susie Bright’s picks for 2001, with a focus on the unusual and the most sincere voices. Most of these are not your typical erotic story, written to get you off quickly. Rather, they are imaginative, literary, and thought-provoking. You may or may not become aroused, but you will definitely find yourself thinking about the nature of what’s erotic and what is sexy. This is a great choice for those who enjoy a provocative short story, erotic and otherwise.
