Skin Effect, a recently re-released erotic sci-fi and fantasy anthology by M. Christian, is a delightful journey to a non-dystopian future where anything is possible. We can only hope that something close to the author’s optimistic and vividly imaginative vision of humanity’s destiny comes to pass.

Normally, when I write a review, I treat the book as a stand-alone entity, without considering prequels, sequels or other books in a series. In reviewing Skin Effect, however, it’s almost impossible not to make some reference to The Bachelor Machine, M. Christian’s first collection of science fiction erotica, which I reviewed back in 2009. For one thing, there’s the subtitle, “More Erotic Science Fiction and Fantasy Erotica”, pointedly implying the existence of the previous volume. Then there’s ...more

M. Christian’s latest collection of nine erotic sci-fi stories is a worthy sequel his earlier book, The Bachelor Machine. While both collections show how technology can enhance sexual experience, Skin Effect actually seems more focused on the fluid nature of identity than on sex as a physical experience. This is not to say that the sex has shrunk in importance in the imaginary future; if anything, sex is shown to be the one thing that breaks down human isolation and self-delusion.

Jazmin Kensington's narration in this audiobook edition elevates the already mesmerizing futuristic fantasies to being-there status. Highly recommended to both erotica and sci-fi fans.

Book Review: Skin Effect by M. Christian

Her Tangh-i-ness loves her some Kink.
Erotica has always figured in my Must-Read pile.

I'm always re-reading the naughty parts.
So this M. Christian offered up something hot and spicy.

Sex ain't just about the act. There's a before and after it...like everything else. But a badass writer can make you consider a pencil with an eraser as a love object or a handy-dandy pervertible. A man can nail the truth about how it feels for a woman and a gay/bi person can

The nine stories in this intriguing, highly-imaginative, occasionally maddening collection have a deeply personal feel to them. These are not easy, breezy reads: these stories require that readers take a journey—and the road is not always direct or level or smooth. A bit of effort is required, and sometimes, more than a single reading. But, in the end, the reader is richly rewarded with beauty and enlightenment.

This isn’t ‘hard’ sci-fi or conventional genre erotica, but, indeed, something quite

M. Christian always pushes me outside of "the norm" and makes me think about each story. This group of Erotic short stories is no different. I truly enjoyed every minute of each story and the journey each one took me on.

There wasn't anything wrong with this book, it's well-written and creative, but I only enjoyed two stories and the final from the author.

M. Christian has a knack for placing the reader inside his stories and this book is no exception. Brilliant descriptions, captivating stories, interesting characters, and all read wonderfully.
