Synopses & Reviews
Hanne Blank's work as a writer, editor, and sexuality educator includes Big Big Love: A Sourcebook on Sex for People of Size and Those Who Love Them (Greenery Press), which one reviewer described as "striking the perfect balance between expertise and humor (American sex book-ese at its best)...". She is the editor of several collections of erotica, including Zaftig: Well Rounded Erotica (Cleis Press, 2001), the co- editor of the award-winning sexuality websites Scarlet Letters (scarletletters.com) and Scarleteen (scarleteen.com), and a widely published writer who writes on topics as diverse as music, Judaism, sex, clothes, body image, and food for venues as varied as Bitch: Feminist Response to Pop Culture, the Boston Phoenix, BBW, Lilith, and The Elvis Presley Reader. She lives in Boston with numerous houseplants, two cats, and one inter-gendered life partner, and online at www.hanne.net.
Hanne is a must for the well-read polymorphously perverse I`ve loved her work from the very first essay I read she`s saucy, sexy and, most important, intelligent and thought-provoking (Anything That Moves Magazine)

Best Transgender Erotica brings together twenty stories by writers of every gender. The first book to celebrate exclusively gender-bending, -crossing, and -breaking sexuality through erotic fiction, Best Transgender Erotica includes representations of many forms of `trans` identity. Whether blurring the line between masculine and feminine, or making the transition from female to male, or vice versa, these characters (and authors) had to put on their sexiest, most alluring, heart-racing show in order to make the cut.Including selections from Thomas Roche, Saachi Green, Todd Belton, Simon Sheppard, M. Christian, and many more of today`s best-known erotica writers, Best Transgender Erotica follows on the smashing success of Best Bisexual Erotica, which was released in 2000. Like `Best Bi,` `Best Trans` drew its contributors from within the gender activist community, providing a unique and stimulating look at gender issues from an erotic perspective.Contributors: Todd Belton, Saachi Green, S.
