    I would have given this a 4.5 if I could have. It was a great little group of stories that elicited many different emotions and actions. They are stories that combine a little sex with a little horror as the title states. I found myself facinated with the woman that through sex could take over her lovers' bodies and chuckling over The Thang (sometimes you get what you ask for) and grossed out by The Meat Market. These little anthologies are not for everyone but if you are a horror fan or an erot I would have given this a 4.5 if I could have.

    This weird cover and book has short stories from such a great ensemble – Graham Masterton, Robert Bloch, Harlan Ellison, F. Paul Wilson, Ramsay Campbell, that I had to pick it up. Not to mention, of course, that the erotic horror theme is interesting if done right. Overall it was a worthy anthology; not erotic, but some disturbing stuff here and there, others creepy, others just strange. The first story by Graham Masterton was average. The story was creative and out there, but not too crazy about This weird cover and book has short stories from such a great ensemble – Graham Masterton, Robert Bloch, Harlan Ellison, F. Paul Wilson, Ramsay Campbell, that I had to pick it up. Not to mention, of course, that the erotic horror theme is interesting if done right. Overall it was a worthy anthology; not erotic, but some disturbing stuff here and there, others creepy, others just strange. The first story by Graham Masterton was average. The story was creative and out there, but not too crazy about it. As usual his writing style is smooth. The same is same for Richard Matheson’s The Likeness of Julie, promising but just not raising above average. The Thang by Robert R. McCammon doesn’t have much of an explanation for how the man got that way, but it was a cool short story where it was hard to take the eyes away, much like a train wreck. F. Paul Wilson’s Menage A Trois was lots of fun with an eccentric old lady and a dark humor. Mr. Right from Richard Christian Anderson is amusing and brief, reminding me of a brief joke I’ve seen on the internet before over the years. Chocolate from Mick Garris was written well in the first person POV, not with any full explanation, but interesting nonetheless. Again by Ramsey Campbell (have so much of his stuff in my library to read still) was maybe the creepiest story of the bunch. Eerie, with his powerful talent of the pen enhancing the horror. Where his story was the creepiest, the next story by Lisa Tuttle, Bug House, is the most disturbing. There IS a strange eroticism with this one in fact, but it gives miserable shivers. Interesting story that is the perfect length for its tale and almost numbing in its telling, and is one of the best offered. Vengeance Is. By Theodore Sturgeon is such a short story, a scene really, that is doesn’t draw much attention. J.N. Williamson (RIP) also tells a simply short story which is disturbing in itself. Michael Garrett warns us on the type of people you shouldn’t cross in Reunion, a decently long tale that has a semi-predictable, but still worthy, ending. Harlan Ellison’s Footsteps was awesome and gothic with tone, I love the surprise ending and almost a happy one for the big and bad. Pretty is…from Mike Newton is a typical prey and predator tale that tells it from a woman’s point of view instead of the similar stories like it, it was interesting. I loved Aunt Edith by Gary Brandner, good stuff, even if not very surprising. Meat Market from John Skipp and Craig Spector is painfully brutal but cool and fits into the anthology like a second glove. Robert Bloch doesn’t disappoint with being brutal and yicky with the Model either, his great writing style working well for this horrible event. Carnal House (Steve Rasnic Tem) is eerie and unsettling but gothic and justified. They’re coming for you by Les Daniels was great – funny stuff, humorous writing, loved the ironic ending, bravo. Suzie Sucks by Jeff Gelb plays on some urban legend stuff kind of, a suitable story that doesn’t have a lot of surprises but works. Ray Garton’s Punishments is one of the very top of the stories as the best, great stuff and interesting. If you’re a horror fan or anthology fan, pick this one up if you pass it by. There have been new ones since then (this is part one), and it’s an older book, but it’s fun for those demented moods.

    There is a line of thought that sex and horror (death) are linked; and it's not just because Hammer horror films started integrating nudity by the late 60's and a lot of people grew up on them. The link seems to be loss of control. Great sex culminates in a white hot primal climax that renders both parties momentarily incapable of rational thought. In good relationships this mutually beneficial loss of cognoscent abilities is not noticed.

The link seems to be loss of control. Great sex culminates in a white hot primal climax that renders both parties momentarily incapable of rational thought. In good relationships this mutually beneficial loss of cognoscent abilities is not noticed. The physical is all that matters and that's becuase the partners trust one another. What if that trust isn't there though? What if someone has a different set of values for what brings them pleasure? Then that loss of control can lead to definite unpleasantness. Turning something that's supposed to be pleasurable into something frightening is an easy fear to exploit. It also gives most readers an easy 'in' to these stories. Who hasn't felt the urge and realized that it might lead to unsound decision making? (C'mon even Spock lost it during Pon Farr.) That's the basis for these stories and this entire series. It's not a link we're likely to see go away anytime soon. (Because it's so true.)

    I've had the HOT BLOOD books (or most of them anyway) setting on my shelf for many years now and I kept saying I was going to get to them and just kept putting them off. Now that I've read this one... I can't believe I kept putting them off! I can't say that I absolutely loved EVERY story in this book, but there are some great pieces within this one book as there are twenty-five stories and authors to choose from. I was introduced to many authors I have never read and some I had never even heard I've had the HOT BLOOD books (or most of them anyway) setting on my shelf for many years now and I kept saying I was going to get to them and just kept putting them off.

My list of novels to read sooner-rather-than-later has now grown as I'll be bumping up some of the authors I read within this collection. If you are looking to find some good erotic horror stories, look no further, as this book definitely gives a wide variety!

    Hot indeed. I needed a cold shower AND a change of pants. Oh, from peeing them in fright, not because...well, never mind.

    I thought this was a really cutting edge anthology with some really find stuff in it. And then there was "The Thang," by Robert McCammon. I won't call it good. It was horrible, in a way. But damn it sure was memorable.

    Hot Blood 1 is a collection of over 20 short stories, supposedly on an "Erotic Horror" theme, although my edition is subtitled "Tales of Provocative Horror" instead. The stories are of varying lengths, from just a few pages to around 30 in some cases. As is usually the case with collections, the quality varies from pretty good, through not bad, to what the...? I found the title to be a little misleading.

I guess this tittilating title was a marketing ploy. Many of the stories are oddities and would fit into an "Outer Limits" or "Tales of the Unexpected" theme. This isn't a bad thing, just not quite what the reader would expect from the cover. Overall, a varied collection of unusual tales that has enough entertainment value for fans of horror oddities with a bit of sex thrown in here and there.

    Perhaps it was a sign of the book's age, but I didn't get the creepy sexies out of this at all.

    This review originally published in Looking For a Good Book. Rated 3.0 of 5 I've always had a passion for well-written horror stories, though they can be difficult to find as many authors (as in the horror films) make them more about blood and gore rather than a psychological horror. There's also a fine line between the adrenaline rush from being scared and the adrenaline rush from being sexually aroused, so combining the two makes for a twisted kind of sense. Hot Blood is the first anthology in a This review originally published in Looking For a Good Book. Rated 3.0 of 5 I've always had a passion for well-written horror stories, though they can be difficult to find as many authors (as in the horror films) make them more about blood and gore rather than a psychological horror. There's also a fine line between the adrenaline rush from being scared and the adrenaline rush from being sexually aroused, so combining the two makes for a twisted kind of sense. Hot Blood is the first anthology in a series and features some well-recognized author names mixed with some that are new (to me, at least). As with most anthologies, the quality of the stories varies a lot. I'm pleased that none of them stood out as real duds, but only two were noteworthy. "Punishments," by Ray Garton adds a touch of religion to his sexually charged horror story, with a young boy discovering that the prudish church organist isn't quite the prude she seems to be, but her sexual desires aren't the only secret she hides. My favorite story is "Aunt Edith" by Gary Brandner. When a young girl brings her new boyfriend home to meet her Aunt Edith, the aunt sends the girl down the street on an errand so that Edith can test the man's true intentions and his purity. What happens will send a shiver down your spine, but just as I did, you'll probably chuckle a bit, too. However, the story begins with a brief prologue which is completely unnecessary and gives the ending away. Overall, this was a nice diversion (I really enjoy reading short stories) from the many novels I've been reading. This volume contains the following: Introduction - Jeff Gelb and Lonn Friend "Changeling" - Graham Masterton "The Likeness of Julie" - Richard Matheson "The Thang" - Robert R. McCammon "Ménage à Trois" - F. Paul Wilson "Mr. Right" - Richard Christian Matheson "Blood Night" - Chet Williamson "Chocolate" - Mick Garris "Again" - Ramsey Campbell "Bug House" - Lisa Tuttle "Vengeance Is." - Theodore Sturgeon "The Unkindest Cult" - J. N. Williamson "Reunion" - Michael Garrett "Footsteps" - Harlan Ellison "Pretty Is..." - Mike Newton "Aunt Edith" - Gary Brandner "Daughter of the Golden West" - Dennis Etchison "Meat Market" - John Skipp and Craig Spector "The Voice" - Rex Miller "The Model" - Robert Bloch Carnal House" - Steve Rasnic Tem "They're Coming for You" - Les Daniels "Suzie Sucks" - Jeff Gelb "Punishments" - Ray Garton "Red Light" - David J. Schow Author Biographies Looking for a good book? Hot Blood is a nice assortment of dark, occasionally erotic, short stories. While nothing is outstanding, nothing is horrible, either.

    Yes this book is dated, so you can't really expect it to be horrific in nature with gratuitous sex scenes, however it does live up to it's genre. The short stories in this book are all different and all have a mix of different supernatural and horror elements. Well written and interesting plotlines. My personal favourite in the anthology is the short story called " Chocolate".

    Mixed bag of short stories, some i liked very much (especially the last one about photography), some were more meh... But on average, a nice opportunity to have little somethings to read while waiting for the public transportation to arrive.

    Hot Blood is very enjoyable, a nice anthology of tales with the erotic/horror themes. Lots of very talented writers adding in their stories, and it's a winner. My favorite stories, "The Changeling" "The Thang" "Aunt Edith," and "Vengeance Is".

    The Hot Blood series is exactly what it says it is: An anthology of short stories that does an excellent job of mixing horror and erotica. Every book in the series is an excellent read.

    I reread this last holiday and finished it in January 2012. I found it sublime and somewhat boring and predicatable. MCCammon's was the best short story.

    Dont' let the name fool you. This collection of stories are much smarter and far more entertaining then you would expect from the title alone.

    A nice collection of short stories that are more erotic than horror. Recommended
