Black Feathers

Erotic Dreams

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


This new ebook edition of BLACK FEATHERS: EROTIC DREAMS contains the original 23 erotic short stories plus a new foreword by author Cecilia Tan. A ground-breaking book of "sex-positive" erotica in the 1990s, BLACK FEATHERS combines BDSM, pansexuality, fantasy, science fiction, and dream-like realism in a panoply of stories by the founder of Circlet Press. 

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 01, 1998 – Tan boasts in an author's note, "I imagine a world where dominance and submission play an important role in people's happiness and social order." While John Stuart Mill might have approved of the sentiment, it is hard to imagine him (or anyone else) getting excited over these 23 mechanically kinky, self-consciously quirky tales of bondage and SM. Divided into loosely thematic categories (Wish Fulfillment, Faraway Worlds, The Seamy Side, etc.), none transcends its unobjectionable premise: a young man finds himself with the help of a streetwise vampire; a young woman throwing a costume party falls for the "slave" of her dominatrix friend; a virginal freshman gets initiated into a gay fraternity; aliens put willing humans on a leash. To paraphrase T.S. Eliot, cheap sex without sin is a bore: for all the leather, nipple-clamps and futuristic settings, watching Tan's thin, sinless creations copulate is like watching an orgy between anatomically correct paper dolls. This is porn for people who don't like sex. FYI: Tan is the founder and publisher of Circlet Press, which specializes in erotic science fiction.
