Jasmine Taylor, a struggling young actress, responds to a job-ad offering the 'opportunity of a lifetime' for a female with 'hidden depths'. After a bizarre audition, she wakes to find herself a prisoner in a picturesque village. The village of Elldean seems timeless - peaceful and idyllic. However, the village hides a dark, terrifying secret - an ancient beast lives in the surrounding forest and, once a year, it emerges from its lair - to mate. The beast is huge and all in proportion - few women are capable of taking it on - and surviving - most are literally skewered to death. But if the beast doesn't get to mate then all hell will break loose. For both her sake and that of the village, Jasmine is subjected to an extreme 'training' regime that will literally stretch the young woman to her limits, while, at the same time, release her secret, hidden desires. Can she survive the beast and save the village from its wrath? This extreme erotic horror short story is for adult readers only.

Death by Umbrella the 100 Weirdest Horror Movie Weapons Hardback

Genre: Performing Arts

This is the HARDBACK version. "Use the combos, keep the feet light. This is it." That's boxing champ Julius, psyching himself up for a showdown with, of all people, unstoppable killer Jason Voorhees in Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan. Perhaps not familiar with the fact that a goalie mask is meant to stop rock hard vulcanized rubber flying at 100 mph, his fists prove laughably ineffective. Jason's though, are anything but. He punches Julius's head clean off with one right cross. A fist might seem like unconventional weaponry compared with the knives and axes usually deployed by unspeaking, unfeeling, unstoppable killers in horror films. And it is. But it doesn't even scratch the surface when it comes to weird ways people have been killed in horror. Horror movie victims have had ears of corn buried in their backs, they've been decapitated by basketballs, lacerated by avant-garde sculptures, skewered by mounted deer antlers, bludgeoned by pogo sticks, and punctured with unfurled umbrellas. Death by Umbrella! The 100 Weirdest Horror Movie Weapons showcases these oddball deaths and some even stranger ways killers have gone about their grisly business - MOs that would leave even the most seasoned coroner shaking their head provided, of course, that it's still attached, for in the world of horror, no one is safe. Authors Christopher Lombardo and Jeff Kirschner are Toronto horror journalists and hosts of the Really Awful Movies Podcast, a weekly celebration of low budget genre film. They also review horror films new and old at ReallyAwfulMovies.com.

The Erotic Thriller in Contemporary Cinema

Author: Linda Ruth Williams
Publisher: Indiana University Press
ISBN: 0253347130
Release Date: 2005
Genre: Performing Arts

This bold and original book examines in detail a relatively new genre of film—the erotic thriller. Linda Ruth Williams traces the genre’s exploitation of pornography and noir, discusses mainstream stars (including Michael Douglas and Sharon Stone) as well as genre-branded direct-to-video stars, charts the work of key producers and directors, and considers home videos as a distinct form of viewing pleasure. She maps the history of the genre, analyzing hundreds of movies from blockbusters such as Basic Instinct, Fatal Attraction, and In the Cut to straight-to-video film titles such as Carnal Crimes, Sins of Desire, and Night Eyes. Williams’s witty and illuminating readings tell the story of this sensational genre and contribute to the analysis of mainstream screen sex—and its censorship—at the beginning of the 21st century. She shows that as the erotic thriller plays out the sexual fantasies of contemporary America, it also provides a vehicle for marketing those fantasies globally.

In her witty and breathtakingly sexy novel, Emily Foster introduces a story of lust, friendship, and other unpredictable experiments. . .

But that's all going to change after she asks Dr. Charles Douglas, the postdoctoral fellow in her lab, to have sex with her. Charles is not only beautiful, he is also adorably awkward, British, brilliant, and nice. What are the odds he'd turn her down? Very high, as it happens. Something to do with that whole student/teacher/ethics thing. But in a few weeks, Annie will graduate. As soon as she does, the unlikely friendship that's developing between them can turn physical--just until Annie leaves for graduate school. Yet nothing could have prepared either Annie or Charles for chemistry like this, or for what happens when a simple exercise in mutual pleasure turns into something as exhilarating and infernally complicated as love.

Without God

Author: Louis Betty
Publisher: Penn State Press
ISBN: 9780271078076
Release Date: 2016-06-28
Genre: Literary Criticism

Michel Houellebecq is France’s most famous and controversial living novelist. Since his first novel in 1994, Houellebecq’s work has been called pornographic, racist, sexist, Islamophobic, and vulgar. His caricature appeared on the cover of the French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo on January 7, 2015, the day that Islamist militants killed twelve people in an attack on their offices and also the day that his most recent novel, Soumission—the story of France in 2022 under a Muslim president—appeared in bookstores. Without God uses religion as a lens to examine how Houellebecq gives voice to the underside of the progressive ethos that has animated French and Western social, political, and religious thought since the 1960s. Focusing on Houellebecq’s complicated relationship with religion, Louis Betty shows that the novelist, who is at best agnostic, “is a deeply and unavoidably religious writer.” In exploring the religious, theological, and philosophical aspects of Houellebecq’s work, Betty situates the author within the broader context of a French and Anglo-American history of ideas—ideas such as utopian socialism, the sociology of secularization, and quantum physics. Materialism, Betty contends, is the true destroyer of human intimacy and spirituality in Houellebecq’s work; the prevailing worldview it conveys is one of nihilism and hedonism in a postmodern, post-Christian Europe. In Betty’s analysis, “materialist horror” emerges as a philosophical and aesthetic concept that describes and amplifies contemporary moral and social decadence in Houellebecq’s fiction.

Seinfeldia

Author: Jennifer Keishin Armstrong
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
ISBN: 9781476756110
Release Date: 2017-06-06
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

The New York Times bestseller about two guys who went out for coffee and dreamed up Seinfeld—“A wildly entertaining must-read not only for Seinfeld fans but for anyone who wants a better understanding of how television series are made” (Booklist, starred review). Comedians Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld never thought anyone would watch their sitcom about a New York comedian sitting around talking to his friends. But against all odds, viewers did watch—first a few and then many, until nine years later nearly forty million Americans were tuning in weekly. Fussy Jerry, neurotic George, eccentric Kramer, and imperious Elaine—people embraced them with love. Seinfeldia, Jennifer Keishin Armstrong’s intimate history is full of gossipy details, show trivia, and insights into how famous episodes came to be. Armstrong celebrates the creators and fans of this American television phenomenon, bringing readers into the writers’ room and into a world of devotees for whom it never stopped being relevant. Seinfeld created a strange new reality, one where years after the show had ended the Soup Nazi still spends his days saying “No soup for you!”, Joe Davola gets questioned every day about his sanity, and Kenny Kramer makes his living giving tours of New York sites from the show. Seinfeldia is an outrageous cultural history. Dwight Garner of The New York Times Book Review wrote: “Armstrong has an eye for detail….Perhaps the highest praise I can give Seinfeldia is that it made me want to buy a loaf of marbled rye and start watching again, from the beginning.”

The Venus Complex

Author: Barbie Wilde
Publisher: Comet Press
ISBN:
Release Date: 2012-11-01
Genre: Fiction

A man rises out of an abyss of frustration and rage and creates works of art out of destruction, goddesses out of mere dental hygienists and beauty out of death. It’s also about the sickness and obsession that is LOVE. “After purposefully killing his wife in a car accident, art professor Michael Friday finds his perspective on things has become a little…warped. Via his personal journal, we’re allowed into his mind to slowly watch the disintegration of it, bearing witness to his unnerving sexual cravings and ideas about killing: intertwined with the paintings he loves so much. As Michael writes, he’s ‘turning into something dead’; but at the same time he wants to be somebody, not a nobody. Using his diary to rant against the world in general – including everything from banks to popular culture, from national holidays like Christmas to politics – he reveals more about the big, gaping hole in his own life. But as the novel goes on the first person narrative tensely builds up, displaying his dark dreams and innermost thoughts; his way of filling that void and presenting his grisly ‘works of art’ to the world. As intelligent and cultured as Hannibal, easily as disturbing as American Psycho and infinitely less reassuring than Dexter, this is a sexually-charged real life horror story that will definitely stay with you.” —review by Paul Kane, award-winning horror and fantasy writer Enter into Michael’s world through the pages of his personal journal, where every diseased thought, disturbing dream, politically incorrect rant and sexually explicit murder highlights his journey from zero to psycho. "Wilde...is one of the finest purveyors of erotically charged horror around." —Fangoria Magazine #320 "The Venus Complex is a delicious collision of noir thriller and visceral horror. Whip-smart devious and jolting!" —Jonathan Maberry, Multiple Bram Stoker Award Winner and New York Times best-selling author of Code Zero and V-War
