Dirty Magazine 2/97 Dirty Magazine (February 1997)
Backstage Passes
Edited by Amelia G
(6.95 Rhinoceros)
Culled from the pages of Blue Blood, the Gothic sub-culture-oriented sex and music magazine, this collection of short stories explores the connection between lust and rock and roll, and does it rather well. The anthology includes many authors famous in horror and sci-fi circles (John Shirley, Poppy Z. Brite), as well as many lesser-known talents, but the bottom line is that it's a top-notch erotica omnibus. It might not appeal to the more prurient bastards out there, but it's definitely the ticket for those of you who've always had a thing for delectable Goth girls. Or boys. Whatever turns you on.

Backstage Passes
Backstage Passes in a compilation of dynamic authors who write excellent fiction. I was charged by this book from first sentence to last. Here are 18 works of spell binding literature from authors of various popularity. At times while reading I had to stop and take a minute just to digest this compelling collection. The stories are each a dark fantasy exploring that which is eerie, and/or erotic. The reader is transported through realms of writers imagination and desire. Some stories address that which is gothic, but never in a heavy handed matter, preserving the exotic and conjuring the mystic. Sexuality is addressed in as many different directions as not to disappoint the more demanding of readers. Blood play and bisexuality are subjects as is domination, ghosts, and social standing. I got from this book what I needed, and recommend it to anyone who reads this magazine. Backstage Passes was brought together by Amelia G of Blue Blood and some of the stories have graced its pages. Thank you Amelia for this fine collection! (Write c/o Blue Blood, 2625 Piedmont Road, Suite 56332, Atlanta GA 30324)[DanO]
