The Mammoth Book of Erotica presents The Best of Alison Tyler
By Alison Tyler
The Lindy Shark
The Lindy Shark is a master at maneuvering through the crowds of dancers. Seductive on his feet, exceptional in bed, he woos his prey rather than dining on them-but leaves them demolished, nonetheless.
Ten Minutes in the 80s
"For ten minutes in the eighties, I was beautiful. I've been beautiful since, but never like that. Never again." This a moment in time story, nostalgia unleashed in the pages of an erotic awakening.
Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John
"I didn't mean to fuck all of them," says the narrator. "I'm generally not that kind of a girl." But that doesn't stop this sexy co-ed from sampling the different selection of the students she is helping to tutor.
A, B, or Me?
Follows a couple who uses a local political issue to juice up their lovelife. Never has cold-calling been quite so sexy.
She wants her clit pierced. By him. He's happy to oblige, but not until he's sure she's ready. By the time she spreads her legs for him, she's given him more than her skin to pierce. She's given him her soul.
Called "a trollop with a laptop" by East Bay Express, "a literary siren" by Good Vibrations and "the mistress of literary erotica" by Violet Blue, Alison Tyler is naughty and she knows it.
Over the past two decades, Ms Tyler has written more than twenty-five explicit novels, including Tiffany Twisted, Melt with You and The ESP Affair. Her novels and short stories have been translated into Japanese, Dutch, German, Italian, Norwegian, Spanish and Greek. When not writing sultry short stories, she edits erotic anthologies, including Alison's Wonderland, Kiss My Ass, Skirting the Issue and Torn.
Ms Tyler is loyal to coffee (black), lipstick (red) and tequila (straight). She has tattoos, but no piercings; a wicked tongue, but a quick smile; and bittersweet memories, but no regrets. She believes it won't rain if she doesn't bring an umbrella, prefers hot and dry to cold and wet, and loves to spout her favorite motto, "You can sleep when you're dead". She chooses Led Zeppelin over The Beatles, the Cure over NIN, and the Stones over everyone. Yet although she appreciates good rock, she has a pitiful weakness for 80s hair bands.
In all things important, she remains faithful to her partner of seventeen years, but she still can't choose just one perfume.
