The Empress's New Lingerie: Bedtime Stories for Grownups

Hillary Rollins, Author Harmony $16 (160p) ISBN 978-0-609-60705-3
Naughty takes on classic fables are old hat, but that doesn't stop Hillary Rollins from trying to plumb new depths of depravity in The Empress's New Lingerie, a bawdy collection of recycled fairy tales in which no fetish is left unexplored. It would be difficult to pick the worst offender, but in some of the raunchier vignettes one finds Snow White servicing all of the dwarves at once, near-bestiality in ""Jackie and the Beanstalk,"" a Prince Charming with a thing for feet in ""Cinderella"" and plain old incest in ""Hansel and Gretel."" Timid readers should consider themselves warned.
