Yep, the real Happy Valley. I've been here so long that folks who shopped at The Mercantile when they were in college stop by when bringing their kids to college here. And several years before that, I went to Mount Holyoke.

Carnal Machines: Steampunk Erotica

Edited by D.L. King

For a group from such a tightly-laced ...
I sadly missed out on participating in the discussion but wanted to chime in after the fact. This was my first time participating in Naked Reader and also my first steampunk read. I have to say it was great fun and I really enjoyed myself.

I loved all the stories. I thought the mix of blushing Victorian and futuristic tech was great with the sex. I myself have had a hard time finding erotica that actually has sex. It will hint at and suggest at but not really have any so this was a nice experience. I thought the stories themselves were great and I liked the variety to them. I'm really glad to have participated and look forward to next month.

Thanks to Laurel you rock

Sorry for not being there last night, I had a family dinner that ended pretty late. It looked like it was a lot of fun, as usual.

I loved this book! I felt the same way at first, but ended up really getting into it!

I'm so sorry I missed this meeting! I was very much looking forward to discussing how shocked I was about how much I liked this book. I didn't realize I liked "steampunk" but I guess I do!

I also really liked that it really was KINKY sex, too!
