Stage lights up!
The lights have gone up on Ultimate Burlesque! (Or, for those of you who don't like metaphors ... Ultimate Burlesque is now in print!) I've linked to Amazon UK, where stock is showing (not to mention stockings); I'm sure the U.S. Amazon won't be far derriere—er, I mean behind.
This is the collection of burlesque-themed erotica that raises money for Macmillan Cancer Support. It's edited by Emily Dubberley and Alyson Fixter of Scarlet magazine, and published by Xcite Books.
From the official publicity (with some links added unofficially by Yours Truly):
Ultimate Burlesque is introduced by Chris Manby and features stories from Katie Fforde, Jo Rees, Olivia Darling, Nikki Magennis, Maxim Jakubowski, Kristina Lloyd, Alison Tyler, Siobhan Kelly, Monmouth, Portia da Costa, Mark Farley, Richard Bardsley, Mat Fraser, Jeremy Edwards, Donna George Storey, Elizabeth Black, Wanda von Mittens, Carmen Ali, Katie Crawley, Sarah Berry, Elizabeth K Payne, Aimee DeLong, Carmel Lockyer, Alcamia, Claire Wordley and Lauren Wissot.
And here's what Mil Millington, author of Things My Girlfriend and I Have Argued About, has to say:
"A worthy charity, and filthy, perverse, sexually aberrant writing. Nope—this really doesn't have a down side, does it?"
