Sex and The Forest

Sex rszd 19cm.jpg (41032 bytes)    backcoverrszd19cm.jpg (56206 bytes)

A cooperative of ten Forest (of Dean) writers have produced a bold new book. Entitled ‘Sex and the Forest’, it contains a series of short stories each celebrating the act of sex. Writing frankly yet well about this delicate topic is a difficult task, yet the authors have produced a sophisticated and entertaining little volume. Costing a mere £5.99, it will make an interesting and unusual present for those of a more daring nature – a real ‘fern ticket’ of a read! 

This 32 page book measures 21cm tall by 15cm wide.  It contains a story by yours truly, and ten other stories which are indeed entertaining, original and stimulating
