Crossing the Border: Tales of Erotic Ambiguity is a book of 22 short stories by 22 authors, edited by Lisa Tuttle. Some have been published previously, others are new. The stories vary in length from 8 pages to 30 pages. They also vary markedly in quality. There are some outstanding ones, but the majority are rather mediocre. Some are decidedly bizarre, while others are so vague that it’s hard to know what they are about. And some are, frankly, boring. The worst are utter rubbish. Subjects inclu ...more

Any collection of short stories has to be mixed as far as personal taste is involved but this was really a much better than average selñection which didn't stray too far into one genre or another. Highly recommended for people prepared to think outside the box or not care whether a box actually exists or matters. More tan erotica, it's imagination - but isn't that the firsat requirement anyway? ...more

A challenging and unusual selection of stories, I was pleasantly surprised at how different they were despite a shared theme. Some were better than others, predictably my favourites included Neil Gaiman and Lisa Tuttle, but I enjoyed Paul Magrs and Angela Carter too. A few a bit too explicit for me, but it's to be expected considering the subject matter. All were interesting and thought provoking though. Pleased to have got hold of this book.
