Adults Only Edited by Joanne Hichens
01 Jul 2014
Welcome to Adults Only, a collection of stories of love, lust, sex and sensuality. Within these pages lies a wonderful range of modern sex writing: stories that are raw, dangerous and powerful, as well as those that are delicate, sensitive and poignant; provocative stories that titillate the senses, as well as perverse stories that are riotously funny. Erotica, tragedy, comedy, drama (but not quite pornography). An anthology from established authors and rising talents, Adults Only is South African short-story writing at its best.
Adults Only is the second Short.Sharp.Stories annual anthology, produced in conjunction with the National Arts Festival. The judging panel consisted of Heather Parker Lewis, Helen Moffett and Zukiswa Wanner.
“4 STARS. There’s something weirdly comforting and delightful about these erotic shorts… Plenty of genres are explored – from magic realism to horror – and the stories are more than just titillating; they celebrate our differences and our fetishes” – Jennifer Platt, Sunday Times
“An amazing and varied, brave and creative collection of stories” – Heather Parker Lewis
“Whatever you’re looking for – filth, fantasy, tenderness, suspense or a grand belly laugh – you’ll find it here” – Helena S. Paige
