Amazons is an erotic, frequently funny, and potentially disturbing anthology of stories about larger-than-life women. These tales are told by a wide variety of writers, reflecting a range of viewpoints and story styles. In Amazons, writers such as Catherine Lundoff, Chris Bridges, Susan St. Aubin, Bryn Colvin, and Jason Rubis "play" with the erotic theme of the Amazon, expounding upon and deconstructing the image of strong women in a variety of wide-ranging stories. These and many more acclaimed authors of erotica explore the clichéf the powerful woman. These are not simply stories of the classical myth (though some play tribute to it). These stories dismantle the legend and break the myth apart, exploding it as it relates to gender, power, femininity vs. masculinity, and women's roles in history. Amazons includes worshipful tales of the legendary female warriors, fantasies about modern amazons cruising city streets, midgets (with attitude), cowgirls, giants, supermodels (with attitude), matriarchs, mothers (and grandmothers), cops, jocks, soldiers, bosses and many others. These stories are funny and sarcastic, horrific, light and fantastic, scary -- but always incredibly erotic.
