Demon pacts. Alien experiments. Ghostly possessions. Monsters under the bed. Tentacles in the toilet bowl. We may fear the things that go bump in the night, but they also intrigue us. Fascinate us. Even turn us on. Keep us earthbound or launch us into outer space. Unveil the hungry horrors of this world or of one full of fantasy and magic. Show us too-friendly creatures from the deep or amorous plants in the rainforest. Expose us to a mad scientist’s tireless steam-powered machine or a matriarchal tribe’s sperm-milking farm. Take us into Hell, or merely into the dark recesses of someone’s dreams. Show us eager "victims" or hesitant ones, or even full-blown resistance . . . as long as it all works out in the end. Whatever they may be, explore your wildest fantasies in this collection of dark erotic tales.
