Four writers for the price of one blog

A Recurrence of Nightmares & Visions

I’m very pleased to announce that my book of 100 dark, and I do mean dark, erotic flash fictions is back, at Burning Book Press.

Nightmares and Visions, by Raziel Moore

The fantasies we dare not tell. The ones we often won’t even admit to ourselves. We imagine them, unbidden, anyway.

They lurk under our beds. They hide in our closets. They wait behind barely open doors. Behind strangers’ eyes. Imagine one hundred short vignettes; scenes of sexual risk, entrapment, surrender and coercion meant to frighten and titillate. Meant to speak to your secrets.

From seducer to seduced, from hunter and hunted, from the ravishing monsters you don’t dare mention, you cannot escape. From the shape-shifting world of dreams to the mundane turned upside-down, be ready to look under your bed, in your closet and behind every door. These are stories to read with a flashlight under the safety of your sheets. Some may be from *your* dreams, or from your nightmares. Or perhaps they will become so.

Explore the eroticism of the unexpected.

I’m not very good at tooting my own horn, but Remittance Girl has written an excellent (if I can say that myself), analytic introduction to the book on her blog. Have a look at: Nightmares & Visions: What erotica should be – Hot and Deliciously Politically Incorrect, and see if you’re willing to take the plunge.

Nightmares & Visions (ISBN  9781939175106, $4.51)  is available at Burning Book Press, at Amazon, and Smashwords

    Its the same 100 pieces from the original edition?

      Yes, though I’ll have to say I made small to, I think, each and every one (and one or two not so small edits here and there).

    That’s great news Raziel, and congratulations. As far as I’m concerned, your collection of stories are the most original, enticing and erotically provocative ever written. There’s nothing else like them. They deserve wide recognition and will hopefully get it.

      That would be a lovely thing, Will. I hope it’ll at least see a few moe electronic bookshelves.

    I just bought my copy! Congrats Raz, and here’s hoping for more from the dark and dirty recesses of your mind!

    I have just finished your Nightmares & Visions.
    I have to admit that as I was reading I was very concerned about you mental welfare.
    But then they do say that the line between genius and madness is very thin.
    On the whole I really enjoyed it, though the later vignettes, in my opinion, are better written.
    I have one question, why are these other worldly creatures only interested in our females?

      Thank you, Paul. I agree about the whole mental welfare thing. And I’d hope my writing improved toward the end – they were written over 10 years, after all. I can’t say if the critters go both ways. Maybe – those would be stories for others to write.

      //I have one question, why are these other worldly creatures only interested in our females?//

      Well, Paul, honestly… :-) I mean, let’s make a musical analogy out of this. If you’re an invading alien and you’re given a choice of two instruments, which is it going to be? — a bunch of Congo Drums or a Stradivarius? It’s going to be the latter — the female. Women are the Strads. They are capable of endless sexual intonations, harmonies and soaring melodies. Men? Well — if you’re at all familiar with abduction “literature”, then I don’t need to tell you what happens to men. It’s all fairly predictable.

      surely it all depends on how the critters are equipped, in the hearing department not to mention others.
      Naturally we males would think of females as Stradivari, especially those that are attracted to us, I wonder how they would describe us.
      Your premise also rests on these critters having roughly the same hormones and metabolism as us.
      Perhaps they just like the way we taste.

      I’m not sure that last comment there //perhaps they just like the way we taste// was meant as a double entendre..or not…but it made me laugh out loud, Paul!

      Raz…I’m about 1/3 of the way through and some of them are so *frigging* hot…*fans face*…and I am glad that there was a forum for you to put some of those vignettes. I have several that stayed in my “starter” pile, coz they didn’t go anywhere…You just do it so brilliantly…

      Some were just on the very thin edge of squickdom…and I’d call that pretty masterful myself. Thus far, am enjoying it immensely.

      I won’t read any more this week because I’m on “shut down mode”…and these dark little tales are very… well they make me….

      well… know.
