Title: Sleight of Hand
Author: Katrina Strauss
Genre: Paranormal erotic
URL: Samhain Publishing
Other Information/warnings: Explicit sex, very mild violence, questionable consent
Summary (from the publisher): What if the man of your dreams is also the one of your nightmares? Edwin Matthews just wants to get some sleep. Traveling by steam train with his family, the melancholic nineteen year old is plagued by restless nights and recurring dreams of a fiery disaster. When a mysterious magician comes aboard, the troubled insomniac’s trip takes an interesting turn.
Tall, dark, and incredibly handsome, the flamboyant Sir Marco Satori offers to cure what ails Edwin. Spurred by equal parts curiosity, desperation, and attraction, Edwin agrees to the experiment. Suddenly he finds his quiet journey turned into a wild ride of life, love, sex, death..and a few strange things in between.
He also finds himself claimed—in more ways than one—while a promise of “eternity” may be more than Edwin bargains for.

Summary (from the publisher): In the first ten years of its existence, Circlet Press published over thirty anthologies and several single-author works, all the time pushing at the boundaries of sf/f and Erotica and fusing the two together. This is a collection of the very best and brightest of this unique publisher and unique genre, with twenty-five stories picked from the hundreds Circlet has put into print. Includes Francesca Lia Block, Catherine Asaro, M. Christian, Thomas S. Roche, Laura Antoniou, and many many more. This is an updated edition for Kindle, fixing previous formatting failures.
N.B.: The review version of the book I received has only 23 short stories and not the 25 referenced in the publisher’s summary. It is unknown if the Kindle version contains 25 stories or the 23 reviewed here.
