KIRKUS REVIEW

 Editor Slung (Slow Hand, 1992, etc.) has compiled another collection of erotica written by women. Most of the authors are not well-known, and all of the pieces are being published for the first time. Each author has added a note about the writing or the meaning of her story. Slung has selected carefully--to give a sense of range and inclusiveness (aesthetic as well as sexual). There's some basic sweaty bump-and-grind action, some lesbian sex, and some ``wow-I-never-knew-it-could-be-like-this'' writing. And, most amusingly and hot in its own way, is Jenny Diski's ``Yarn,'' a feminist fairy tale in which the narrator, a miller's daughter who speaks disparagingly of someone named ``Chaser, or Chooser, or Chancer,'' also turns the tables on Rumpelstiltskin by giving him such a good roll in the spun straw that he forgets his name.
