Welcome to Adults Only, a collection of stories of love, lust, sex and sensuality. Within these pages lies a wonderful range of modern sex writing: stories that are raw, dangerous and powerful, as well as those that are delicate, sensitive and poignant; provocative stories that titillate the senses, as well as perverse stories that are riotously funny. Erotica, tragedy, comedy, drama (but not quite pornography). An anthology from established authors and rising talents, Adults Only is South African short-story writing at its best.
Adults Only is the second Short.Sharp.Stories annual anthology, produced in conjunction with the National Arts Festival. The judging panel consisted of Heather Parker Lewis, Helen Moffett and Zukiswa Wanner. See www.shortsharpstories.com.
