Editorial Reviews for Carnal Machines: Steampunk Erotica
"This captivating collection has everything I look for in outstanding erotica; rich atmospheric settings, interesting, intelligent characters, well-crafted storylines, and the playful but always cerebrally surprising use of language."
—Erotica for the Big Brain
"An inventive, sexy twist on an up-and-coming genre."
"Hot, Victorian repression being let loose on every page."
"Harnessing a young man's libido to power the house—brilliant."
—Independent Publisher Awards Judges, 2012
"It is hard to review an anthology, because you might not like all the stories equally or all the authors equally enough to give a rating. However, I loved all the stories in this book, which uses modern technology in some form or other in each story. It may not be modern as we know it, but with the machines built for pleasure seeking Victorian era prudishness, we see Queen Victoria couldn’t hold back sensuality and sexuality as much as most people might have wished or believed. Carnal Machines is a great collection of stories, with widely varied ideas from widely varied authors. I think you will enjoy it."
"It’s a really good fun, well written anthology which is completely different to anything I’ve ever read before. [...] if you’re looking for something sexy and very different, look no further. Carnal Machines is a decadent and unique read that’s well worth adding to your to be read list."
—Lucy Felthouse for Erotica for All.co.uk
"So, if you're looking something sexy and very different, look no further. Carnal Machines is a decadent and unique read that's well worth adding to your to be read list."
"Carnal Machines is a wonderful exploration of erotica in the Steampunk genre. I've read a fair amount of Steampunk erotica and this book, edited by D L King, is one of the best out there. The stories all embody the genre perfectly. Each one shines as a glimpse into a Victorian world that might have been if things had gone just a wee bit differently and in some cases magically. The characters and worlds of the various authors pull you in so well it's a shock when the story ends. You don't want to let go, you want to continue on and find out what else happens in these worlds. As I mentioned, I've read a lot of Steampunk erotica and most fail to catch the feel or the atmosphere of the genre. Carnal Machines nails it, this is what Steampunk erotica should be. This is definitely a book for the keeper shelf and one to read over and over with your favorite Airship Pirate or Mad Scientist. This one gets a 5 and a recommended read."
—Night Owl Reviews
"It would be easy to get lost in the devices of this ersatz era – they could so easily steal the show – but it is that the tales don’t do this that makes the collection shine. I’m a firm believer in the strength of narrative in erotica, and it’s obvious the authors in this anthology are cut from similar cloth. The devices are indeed carnal, but it’s the characters who take you there."
"The possibilities for this time were limitless and I think the collaborator collected the best of the best. These stories are as varied in their subjects as they are arousing!"
