DIVA MAGAZINE REVIEWED BEST LESBIAN EROTICA 2008?

Okay. If you go here you will find the following quotation:

"Welcome to the subgenre of 'vaudevillian humiliation fetishism'" - Diva

Now, "vaudevillian humiliation fetishism" is a term I coined to describe my erotic stories, so presumably the review quoted mentioned my work while discussing BEST LESBIAN EROTICA 2008, in which I have a story ("The Ant Queen"). But I can't get Diva Magazine where I am. Does anyone know more about the review?

DID YOU EVER COME ACROSS ONE OF THOSE PHOTOS...



























...where you wished you knew the story behind it? Is this a publicity stunt, perhaps?

I believe the German sign in the background says "Wine Cellar for Black Cat."

Actually, that looks like fun. And a nice outfit. Maybe this is how Catwoman trains to fight Batman, and that man or woman in the background is her henchperson.

U.S. IMPERIALISM: WHERE MADNESS AND EVIL SHAKE HANDS

The following quotation is from Ed Vulliamy, "Inside the Pentagon," the Observer, 30 September, 2001 (as quoted on page 145 of Ellen Meiksins Wood's Empire of Capital):

"As war begins in Afghanistan, so does the assault on the White House -- to win the ear and signed orders of the military's Commander in Chief, President George W. Bush, for what Pentagon hawks call 'Operation Infinite War'. . . .

"The Observer has learnt that two detailed proposals for warfare without limit were presented to the President this week by his Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, both of which were temporarily put aside but remain on hold. They were drawn up by his deputy, Paul Wolfowitz. . . . The plans argue for open-ended war without constraint either of time or geography. . . .

"[T]he Pentagon militants prefer to speak of 'revolving alliances', which look like a Venn diagram, with an overlapping centre and only certain countries coming within the US orbit for different sectors and periods of an unending war. The only countries in the middle of the diagrammatic rose, where all the circles overlap, are the US, Britain and Turkey.

"Officials say that in a war without precedent, the rules have to be made up as it develops, and that the so-called 'Powell Doctrine' arguing that there should be no military intervention without 'clear and achievable' political goals is 'irrelevant'. . . ."

from ROXY'S GUIDE TO RHETORICAL BULLSHIT

"We must be competitive."

Translation: in the divinely sanctioned world order of musical chairs, we must ensure that somebody is always left without a seat. This is our moral responsibility. The worst possible scenario is that there should be a seat for everyone.

STUFF I'D LOVE TO WEAR


This is Gigolo Jane from the film, A.I. Her appearance in this
flick is all to brief (surprise surprise. Ever notice how the ultra-
babe in the sexy latex or leather catsuit is always given short
shrift by the camera? What about Trance in Andromeda? Notice
how she's always in darkness so you can't get a good look at her
leathers? What is this shit anyway? I mean, maybe the idea is
that people who like that sort of thing are pervs who must be
given the nod now and then but not overindulged . . . dammit.)

Anyhow, I'd love to wear this. Except I'd rather do so not as a
robo-prostitute, as Gigolo Jane is. Rather, I'd add some
paramilitary accessories and be some kind of space cop or security person.

Gee, I sure hope no one would use my handcuffs against me! That
would be too totally humiliating!

SHIRLEY PARTRIDGE, MOTHER OF ALL MILFS . . .


Mrs. Partridge, you shameless tramp! Look at you there, gazing at your backside in that fancy gilded mirror of yours. Should the mother of five children even be considering going out in public in a getup like that? Just look at the shock on the neighbours' faces!

If you're not careful, that woman will bend you over her knee and give you a good spanking. Is this an example to set for your daughters? I don't think so! You take those hotpants off right away, do you hear? How dare you flaunt your MILFy booty at the world that way! Outrageous!

ANOTHER POSITIVE REVIEW FOR BEST LESBIAN EROTICA 2008

Donna George Storey wrote a very positive review at ERWA of Best Lesbian Erotica 2008 last February which I somehow missed. She mentions many of the stories from the anthology in particular. Here's a quote of what she says about mine:
"Roxy Katt’s “The Ant Queen” will delight movie fans with its lesbian Mrs. Robinson figure and its nod to Casablanca. I laughed out loud, but I also admired Katt’s ability to capture the feelings of every young woman in her late teens, the heroine’s “nameless inadequacy” that is most satisfyingly banished by the story’s climactic end."

For the full review, check it out at the Erotica Readers and Writers Association here.

SOMETHING TO REMEMBER ON LABOUR DAY

All goods and services come basically from these two sources, either directly or indirectly:

1) The natural environment

2) Human labour.

Money, however, useful, even necessary as a means of exchange, produces nothing. Money does not work. People say "make your money work for you," but this is a metaphor mistaken for a reality.

Money, unlike humans and nature, does not work. Therefor, property and power accumulated through the possession of money, and not through one's labour or the free gift of nature is theft.
