Kicking off Cumberland's Seven Deadly Sins series is Speaking of Lust: Stories of Forbidden Desire, edited by Lawrence Block (Hit Man), with 19 racy and bone-chilling stories. Joyce Carol Oates imagines a conversation between a man accused of rape and his public defender. Block presents a novella in which four professionals in the off-hours share stories of lust gone awry. Ed Gorman and Clive Barker also contribute.
