Vaginal Fantasy hangout video, and some new reviews

We’ve updated our Reviews page, and here are the latest highlights:

September 30, 2012 – “It relays a world that is very much like it is today with a bit of Cthulhu around the edges of its reality. It is more like an aphrodisiac than the main event and never gets too harsh…. Cthulhurotica made for some enjoyable reading and entertained in its melding of seemingly incompatible worlds.” Parlor of Horror

September 25, 2012 – Vaginal Fantasy Book Club (link goes to video) reviews Cthulhurotica:

  • “I appreciated the writing and thought it was really well written,” Felicia Day
  • “Thank YOU for putting the Love back in Lovecraft. Or at least the lust!” Bonnie Burton
  • “Each story had different kinds of scary moments, different kinds of sexy moments.” Veronica Belmont
  • “I also liked that the sexuality was really fluid,” Kiala Kazebee

September 25, 2012 – “This was the hottest collection of freaky erotica! If you like quickies, these little Tentacle-Porn short stories will knock your socks off.” Silvia Vale

September 13, 2012 – “The quality of writing and how it is set out including the essays and the illustrations are fantastic.” Adele Jayde

September 6, 2012 – “I felt this collection was a great exploration of pairing creepy, terrifying, and even horrific themes with other themes such a love, marriage, romance, friendship and sexuality. Overall, I enjoyed not only the writing (which was pretty good, in general) but the uniqueness of this collection of short stories.” Madison Martin

Comments from the VF Goodreads Forum

We’ve had a great time watching the conversations about Cthulhurotica unfold on the Vaginal Fantasy Goodreads page. Whether they loved it or didn’t understand it, new readers are talking about our book and that’s wonderful. Here are some of the highlights:

“The creep factor is very well done indeed and the tone is really like Lovecraft et al.” – Caroline

“What I like about the stories was that if you’ve read Lovecraft, the similarities or different takes were really good when compared to the original.” – Michelle

“I loved it and I am glad I bought it…” – Andrew

“Thanks for putting together such an awesome anthology”  – Amanda

“While I would say that some of the short stories are disturbing, I found that most of the them are more intriguing. That is why I really enjoyed this book. I felt this collection was a great exploration of pairing creepy, terrifying, and even horrific themes with other themes such a love, marriage, romance, friendship and sexuality.” – Madison

“I’ve actually been really enjoying it so far – it’s kinda cool to be taken out of your comfort zone by a book, especially one that is as well-written as this is. I wasn’t expecting “tentacle-sexy-times” to actually be interesting to read.” – Fi

As Seen On Geek And Sundry!

Last night the wonderful ladies of the Vaginal Fantasy book club revealed that their official book pick for September is CTHULHUROTICA.

(And then our editor, Carrie, freaked out a little bit, but she’s okay now.)

This means that Felicia Day, Veronica Belmont, Bonnie Burton and Kiala Kazebee will be reading our book this month, and discussing it with their viewers and fans on September 25 at 8pm Pacific time via a live chat.

If you’re new to Cthulhurotica, and found us through VF, welcome! This anthology of short stories is published by Dagan Books, a small press founded by the book’s editor, Carrie Cuinn. The book is meant to show that women, people of color, and people of different sexualities have a place in HP Lovecraft’s Mythos universe – even if Lovecraft himself didn’t think so. You can buy our book here, and follow us on Twitter or on Facebook. We have interviews with the authors too.

We’re also planning a second book in the series, which (like this one) will contain all original stories and art. That’s being put together by Carrie Cuinn and Filipino-American author and editor Don Pizarro (who’s story, “The C-Word” appears in the first book).

Thank you for stopping by, and we hope you enjoy our book!
