Now safely ensconced on both sides of the Pond: The Mammoth Book of the Kama Sutra, edited by the peerless Maxim Jakubowksi and published simultaneously by Constable & Robinson (UK) and Running Press (USA).

This beautiful illustrated book is part historical non-fiction, and part erotica. That's where my esteemed fellow contributors and I came in. We each wrote tales that allegedly inspired various positions detailed in the classic lovemaking "instruction book" of Ancient India, The Kama Sutra. My story, The Tale of Kakali and the Climbing Tree, explains the origins of the sexual embrace "Climbing a Tree." Told in an antiquated voice, it's a mix-up of Cinderella, Pinocchio and Jack and the Beanstalk. And, even with the formal language adopted, I somehow managed to make things sufficiently filthy -- in a good way, of course.

As there was no space alloted in the tome for dedications, I would like to thank my writer friend Stella Omega, whose lovely Dendrophils -- special objects that give new meaning to the term tree hugger -- served as inspiration for my erotic imagination when writing this tale.

Cinderella, Pinocchio, and Jack Beanstalk walk into a bar.

"What'll you have?" asks the bartender.

"Taittinger in a glass slipper," says Cindy.

The bartender nods, then turns to Jack. "You?"

"I'll trade you this handful of beans for a black cow."

The bartender then scrutinizes Pinocchio. "Say, little fella, are you sure you belong in a bar?"

"I don't see why not," answers the marionette, gesturing at the wooden barstools. "The rest of my family is in here."

Anyway ... congratulations! : )

Thanks, pal!

Stella Omega said...

You wanted to dedicate it to me?

I'm.. speechless, thank you!

EllaRegina said...

But of course!

If you read my story you will see why. ;-)

Congrats, and thanks for the heads up that it's available here in the colonies.

Jeremy, you're not quite right in the head. Thankfully.
