"M. Christian speaks with a totally unique and truly fascinating voice. There are a lot of writers out there who'd better protect their markets - M. Christian has arrived!"
- Mike Resnick, Hugos and a Nebula award winning author of more than 40 novels, 200 stories, 12 collections, and editor of 30 anthologies.
"M. Christian's stories squat at the intersection of Primal Urges Avenue and Hi-Tech Parkway like a feral-eyed, half-naked Karen Black leering and stabbing her fractal machete into the tarmac. Portraying a world where erotic life has spilled from the bedroom into the street, and been shattered into a million sharp shards, these tales undercut and mutate the old verities concerning memory, desire and loyalty. Truly a book for our post-everything 21st century."
- Paul Di Filippo, author of over 100 stories and five novels. A native Rhode Islander, he lives in Lovecraft's hometown of Providence, about a mile from HPL's grave.
"M. Christian's erotic stories are always surprising, satisfying and imaginative. The variety of his sexual scenarios is awesome, yet there's an element to each that always rings authentic and true."
- Marilyn Jaye Lewis, author of Neptune & Surf
"M. Christian is a sick fuck: the best reason I still read erotica."
- Shar Rednour, author of The Femme's Guide to the Universe
"M. Christian's writing sizzles with his unique mix of wild imagination and kinkiness galore. These stories are by turns tender, sensual, haunting and downright dirty, and are filled with bold and sassy women whose desires know no bounds! This is a stunning collection of queer erotica that will keep you aroused from start to finish."
- Rachel Kramer Bussel, co-author of the Erotic Writer's Market Guide and reviser of The Lesbian Sex Book.
"M. Christian is one of the most powerful voices in today's erotica. With a voice that ranges from edgy to lyrical, from heart stopping to heart pounding, M. Christian is an amazing talent. Truly, one of the most important erotic writers we have. Speaking Parts is one of M. Christian's finest works to date.
- Cara Bruce, editor of Viscera, Venusorvixen.com, and Best Bisexual Women's Erotica
"M. Christian is one of the finest living writers of erotica. Between these covers is a wealth of imaginative, well-crafted, smoothly written fiction that sings with joy and savvy queer sensibility. It's yummy."
- Patrick Califia-Rice, author of Macho Sluts, Melting Point, Doc and Fluff, and No Mercy.
“When I pick up a book by M.Christian, I know that I'll be surprised and delighted. Whether he's targeting horror, thriller, scifi or erotica genres, or some creative mixture, he never fails to deliver an original perspective.”
- Lisabet Sarai, author of Incognito and Fire
“Fantasist, futurist, eroticist, satirist, humorist, dentist drilling deep into the nerves of the here and now ... M. Christian wears a lot of hats in this multifaceted collection, and they're all a splendid fit.”
- Brian Hodge, author of Mad Dogs and Lies & Ugliness
“M. Christian is one hell of a writer. He paints his universes and characters in full, living color, thrills the reader with non-stop action. A no-holds-barred storyteller, he embraces his reader at the start and doesn't let go until long after the end.”
- Mari Adkins, Apex Publications contributing editor
“M.Christian is a chimera, an amazing combination of tour guide and magician. Whether he's writing science fiction, horror or erotica, he can take you to places you've never imagined, show you sights no-one else will get to see, introduce you to some fascinating people, and guarantee that the trip will be memorable from start to finish. Buy a ticket and fasten your seat belt: you're in for a wild ride!”
- Stephen Dedman is the author of The Art of Arrow Cutting, and Shadows Bite
“M.Christian always writes like dream whether he's creating fantastic visions or ghastly nightmares. With this collection, you get both!”
- Paula Guran, DarkEcho
“M.Christian is the chameleon of modern erotica. One day punk, another romantic; one day straight, another totally perverse and polyamorous. But always sexy and and gripping.”
- Maxim Jakubowksi is the editor of the Mammoth Book of Erotica series
"M. Christian is a writer who takes you for a long walk down a dark wet street at midnight. You can't get much more edgy and still be legal. His fiction never disappoints."
- Nancy Kilpatrick, author of The Power of the Blood series and In the Shadow of the Gargoyle
"M. Christian weaves sex in and around engrossing tales of odd characters caught up in unusal - even bizarre - situations. No quickies here, but fine reading that sizzles."
- Marcy Sheiner, editor of The Oy of Sex, and the Herotica series
"M. Christian is today's premiere erotic shapeshifter, with too many stories to tell to be fenced in by only one gender or identity. Reading these tales is like climbing on for a sexual magic carpet ride through different times and places, diverse bodies, and infinite possibilities."
- Carol Queen, author of The Leatherdaddy & the Femme
"M. Christian is constantly expanding his game, giving us stories which joyfully play with genre while remaining as literate, complex and human as any mainstream work. He is far more than an erotica, SF or horror writer; each new book bearing his name should be anticipated, acquired and savored by those who love good fiction."
- Jason Rubis, author of Strangely Made
"In M. Christian's hands, the short story is alive and well, as well as sexy and smart, witty and surprising, provocative and always more than you bargained for."
- Felice Picano, Lambda Award winning author
"The work of M. Christian is extraordinary not only in its quality and originality, but also in its versatility. This is a writer who goes beyond the mere challenges of writing convincingly from different genders and orientations and psychologies and walks of life, in different settings, subgenres, moods, and tones; this is a master of the craft who can thoroughly reinvent himself, as a voice, every time he picks up the pen - always with glorious results."
- Jeremy Edwards, author of Rock My Socks Off
"M.Christian sends the reader hurtling like a hockey puck through a world of crime, out-of-control passions, mutilation, and madness. Terms like noir and hardboiled don't quite fit -- this is more like ultraviolet, the invisible light that makes the scorpions glow in the dark.”
- Ernest Hogan, author of High Aztech
“I’d use words like “talented” and “gifted”, I know he doesn’t believe in that kind of stuff, but hell, who cares what M.Christian thinks? I’m going to use them anyway.”
- Billierosie, author of Fetish Worship
"M. Christian's stories are the fairy tales whispered to one another by dark angels whose hearts and mouths are brimming with lust. He goes beyond the pale, ordinary definitions of sexuality and writes about need and desire in their purest forms. Readers daring enough to stray from the safety of the path will find in his images and words a garden of delights to tempt even the most demanding pleasure-seeker."
- Michael Thomas Ford, Lambda Literary Award winner
"Rarely is raunch paired with such style and wit. From a look at sex after death to the nature of the Great Cosmic Fuck, from yearnings of the heart to stirrings further down, M. Christian's stories offer the sizzle of strokebook sex combined with the dark lyricism of the perverse."
- Lucy Taylor, Bram Stoker award-winning author of Safety of Unknown Cities
"The first time I read a story by M. Christian it was just an innocent-looking submission to an erotica anthology I was editing. It blew my socks off. In fact, it blew all of my clothes off, and I ended up in bed. How can one writer be so smart, stylish and seductive? I don't know, but when I read an M. Christian story now, I find it best to just get naked and get directly into bed."
- Cecilia Tan, author of Black Feathers and The Velderet
"M. Christian writes queer stories like nobody else's--throroughly explicit, thoroughly strange, and thoroughly great."
- Simon Sheppard, nationally syndicated columnist and co-editor of Rough Stuff: Tales of Gay Men, Sex and Power
"Reading an M. Christian story is like hopping on a rollercoaster of language, imagery, and emotion. Christian taps into almost-forgotten archetypes of pulp fiction and world mythology, of sexual desire and its emotional consequences--pleasant and unpleasant. His sense of narrative impact and his writer's instinct are uncanny; his most far-out characters seem bewitchingly real. I consider his "How Coyote Stole the Sun" to be one of the finest erotic short stories ever written. Without exception, sitting down to read a new story by M. Christian, I feel an electric sense of anticipation: I know I'm in good hands."
- Thomas S. Roche, editor of Noirotica I, II , III & IV
