As an active user of social media, author Anne Rice often shares interesting links on her Facebook page. Today she shared a fascinating article from Business Insider about a booming new trend in self-published fiction, “cryptozoological erotica.” Rice, of course, is herself no stranger to the genre of fantasy erotica having written the Sleeping Beauty series under the pen name A. N. Roquelaure.

EXCERPT:

“[Virginia] Wade is hardly the only author who has made a mint writing about monsters and the women who love them (or at least submit to their sexual appetites). She’s part of a burgeoning literary genre that’s found a wide audience online: monster porn, otherwise known as “cryptozoological erotica,” or as some of the authors prefer to call it, “erotic horror.” Their self-published books feature mythical creatures of every possible variety, from minotaurs to mermen, cthulhus to leprechauns, extraterrestrials to cyclops, who become involved in sexual trysts, often non-consensual, with human lovers.”
