Strawberries and cream might be a popular dessert but save some topping for this decadent collection of stories by Jerry Wheeler, a writer who enjoys his blend of the sweet and the sticky. From the titular tale of a farmer in low-slung jeans growing a peculiar crop to gypsy magic that brings out the "bear" in a bottom to the tale of a grand hunt by an immortal who feeds of ...more

It's no secret that I am a lover of short fiction. Since the first time I bumped into collections of short fiction as a child, I've been hooked on them. It's also no secret I adore Jerry L. Wheeler - he has an ability to come up with the most unique themes for his erotica anthologies - be it trains, the circus, or diners - and presents the reader with collections that manage to spin those themes into an amazing whole.

Those who follow my reviews probably know that I love m/m romance, preferably those that culminate in a happy ending.

Let me start by saying I know the author, but that in no way reflects the score I've given. I genuinely was captivated by this selection of short stories.

This, people, THIS is writing, not typing.
A little more horror than I prefer (but I'm not a fan of horror), and like most erotica it... suffers somewhat as straight prose (er, so to speak ), but well written. And I rather liked the stories (a little under half of them, if I recall correctly) that were neither horror nor especially depressing...
A verstile author. Stories like "Templeton in Love" will tug at your heart while "Strawberries and Spider Strands" will take plot twist to a new level. Sexy and engaging stories.
