I'm a huge fan of Susie Bright, but I didn't enjoy this. Production-wise, I didn't like the fact that each new story started abruptly, actually before you realized that the last one was over. If there had been a longer silence, or preferably some music, it would have flowed better.

What happened to BAE 2002?

Seeing the title 'erotica' lends my imagination that Susie Bright will once again provide the listener/reader with enjoyable product. This was a good listen. I only hope that the "Best of ..." series will continue to bring us past as well as future editions.
