Descrição do produto

Acclaimed author Mitzi Szereto explores the many complexities of desire, love and lust in this rich and varied "best of" collection of erotically charged short stories.

In these 17 provocative and often witty offerings, Mitzi Szereto travels expertly between genres with tales that explore both the light and the dark sides of sexuality. "Oysters and Pearls" gives the reader a glimpse into worlds that are as ordinary as they are fantastical and mysterious. Like a skilled lover, this sensuous and imaginative compilation will leave you wanting more.

“Whether it’s gothic, paranormal, fantasy, sci-fi, romance or flat-out comedy, Szereto does it with panache. Stories that titillate and entertain, provoke wild thoughts or sensual dreams, they’re all here in 'Oysters and Pearls.' Enjoy!”—Kate Douglas, bestselling author of "Spirit Wild" and "Intimate Relations"

“Mitzi Szereto has a quirky and intriguing hold on suburbia, desperation, the loneliness of the human heart and the essential sadness of its yearning, as we seek to express it through sexual contact. It’s a dark and poignant place, of course, but laughter is never entirely absent. Which is just as it should be.”—Niall Griffiths, author of "Wreckage" and "Sheepshagger"

“The strength of this collection lies in its imaginative grasp of the wide variety of cultures, landscapes and emotional engagement of the reader as well the sexual.”—Tobsha Learner, bestselling author of "Picture This"

5.0 de 5 estrelas A Breadth of Fascinating Stories From Around the World! 11 de janeiro de 2017
Por Glenda - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle
I can take or leave erotic stories; I have read a few books over the years but none caught my attention as did Oysters and Pearls: Collected Stories... First because of the author's excellent storytelling... Second because of the breadth of both the research and settings of the collection. In this one book, Szereto has taken us across the world into different lifestyles, religions, and times, as well as different personalities of her characters... What was very exciting to me was that the style of writing matched the type of story. For instance, in the first story, we meet a young Georgia girl who wants to act, but refuses to leave her home... she becomes enamored with the lead in a vampire-themed television series, but still we find the fresh innocence of a starlet encountering an experienced actor playing a vampire...but is he just acting?

The next story is funny, but probably could be oh so true, and will be a adventurous read for any wife whose husband has a particular love; e.g., sports for instance... This time it's Bob Dylan...In this very common story, we see the wife move forward into marriage...and then...toward finding herself again! By any way it Takes...Very Cool story!

Heading to Derbyshire, she looks for signs from the last time there, walking down Bakewell... getting one of the Bakewell puddings that are, oh, so delicious... then continues her tour enjoying being back, finally stopping for lunch in a pub when she sees...an old friend...who soon also enjoys that Bakewell pudding... They were both glad she'd come home...

Next we head to Kyoto, where a young woman travels alone, sees someone to whom she is attracted and...fails, only to go home in sadness...

We soon meet Mrs. Atropos, a lovely Greek lady who was a seamstress by trade... and a wife/widow by happenstance... She forgets how many times she's been married but never forgets the intimacy shared with each one...Loving each man, she always creates something beautiful for them to wear and presents it as a joyous gift of her feelings...only to many times have him wear it as his funeral suit...Yikes!

Had to be enthused about a woman who had moved from the city into a log cabin. City life hadn't been helping her blood pressure, and moving to the top of a mountain, with a neighbor more than a mile away was turning out to be perfect for her... "Some might call it 'solitary.' I call it 'smart.' The less dealings you have with people the less trouble you're going to get." But then outside noises started and she began to get worried...I soon began to feel quite happy that I've recently had ADT installed! LOL... Because there in that cabin, she started finding the cabin open and food missing! "My Zombie, My Lover" will answer anything you want to know more about this quite...strange...story...

Dubai! I will never have visited there like I did in the story, Odalisque... I'm sure you will guess the ending of this story, just like I did...

I enjoyed all of the stories, but I must select Escape as my favorite! It is wonderful to see and learn of a young girl who has been promised to an older reigning leader, who decides she will not fulfill this promise. And the way it is done is a story beyond belief, yet, is so very satisfying...I loved it!

I must stop discussing each individual story or I shall still be writing a long time since there are many other stories in the collection with a total of 17, all of which are quite lengthy and with a story that will entertain, delight, or surprise, especially the last one, which I'll just give the title...The Turnip...
Although I've read story collections before, I must say that I've never enjoyed the stories in any other collection as much as those within the book, Oysters and Pearls. While I do not mind explicit sexuality if it is totally within the storyline, I do caution that if you are not interested in erotica material, please don't buy it. Truthfully, I did not find anything beyond what I have read within adult romantic suspense books...With that clarification, I highly recommend this for your consideration...

Novels are beads strung on a wire, a sequence of events linked by character and intention into a harmonious whole. A short story, in contrast, can likened to a single pearl— tiny but whole, perfectly symmetrical, gleaming smooth, reflecting the light. You can roll the best short stories around in your palm, viewing them from different angles. Afterward, you remember the silky nacre, cool against your skin.

Like pearls, the best stories coalesce around a fragment of grit: a loss, a need, an unsatisfied dream. Imagination builds layers of emotion and sensation around the irritating core. The triggering fragment does not disappear, but the author transforms it into a thing of beauty as much as pain.

Mitzi Szereto’s collection Oysters and Pearls includes some tales that come close to perfect. I’ve been an admirer of Ms. Szereto’s work since my very first introduction to erotica. Hence quite a few of the stories collected here were familiar, but like pearls, they do not lose their luster in one or two readings.

I remember the first time I read “Odalisque”, in one of Ms. Szereto’s early erotic travel anthologies where I also had a story. I was astounded and deeply aroused. It had not lost any of its impact upon re-reading. The tale is a gorgeous evocation of desire for the Other, a sensual feast with a bittersweet aftertaste. A western woman in Dubai experiences an erotic idyll with her Arab lover, only to discover that it’s far easier to mingle bodies than it is cultures.

“Bakewell, Revisited” is another gem, a story of youthful desire reclaimed. The only lesbian tale in the collection, this vignette harnesses all five senses in service of eroticism. Once again there’s no happy ending, but the tale does not require one. The circling of past back to present is complete on its own.

“The Dracula Club” is another of my favorites. Like many of Ms. Szereto’s heroines, the Goth girl in this tale blithely follows her erotic destiny, without much concern for the world’s judgments. In this case, it leads her from Ohio to Romania, into a stone coffin and arms of two lovers who might or might not be undead.

“It’s All Right, Ma (I’m Only Bleeding)” was new to me. This bleakly comic tale is a black pearl. It’s not really erotic, though it’s about sex, but it’s so perfectly structured I felt like applauding at its conclusion.

“Hen Night” has some of the same cleverness, though it’s less dark. A woman decides to liven up her life with an anonymous sexual tryst in the loo. However, the encounter turns out to have unanticipated consequences.

Mitzi Szereto’s erotic visions tend to be tinged with blood and irony. “The Blood Moon Kiss” is an atmospheric vampire tale reminiscent of the Twilight series but infused with far more passion. “My Lover” presents a darkly poetic view of a relationship in which one lover completely consumes the other. “Hell is Where the Heart Is” offers Faustian tale of revenge in which the Devil is called “Alfie”. This rambling story lacks the structural precision of some of the stories in this collection, but shares their black humor.

“Loving on Kyoto Time” brings an uncharacteristic note of gentleness to the collection. There’s no sex in this tale, only graceful, wordless longing that’s mirrored in the beauties of the ancient Japanese city of the title.

I didn’t like every story in Oysters and Pearls. A few of them felt tossed off, raw chips of imagination rather than carefully polished gems. Ms. Szereto’s writing is always competent, but her best stories are literary jewels. Those tales, where the narrator’s voice lingers to echo in your mind, are the ones I most appreciate.

As a whole, Oysters and Pearls is a strong collection of short erotic fiction. The best stories in the volume are ones you’ll want to read and re-read, as much for their gorgeous craft as for their heat.
