literary perversions: a curated selection of really, good BDSM fiction

My guide club has an issue. It’s hard to find fiction that is good.

The Leather Bindings Society satisfies every six months and now we alternate between reading non-fiction and fiction. We have been especially thinking about publications about and linked to BDSM, Leather, fetish and kink. There’s non-fiction aplenty: even if we omit the endless 101-level how-to guides, today’s offerings in memoir, biography, academic work and community-based texts are rich and varied on these topics. We don’t find yourself loving every guide we read, but we have an abundance of solid people to pick from. However when it comes down to fiction… hooboy. Not too effortless. We usually omit pure porn/erotica from go, you wank, not to provide interesting fodder for discussion because it’s designed to make. Periodically a work of erotica manages to strike sufficient plot, character, setting and metaphor records to the office, but books that are such quite few. While we’re open to genre fiction, it usually presents quality dilemmas: predictable plots, ho-hum writing, terrible modifying, and ultimately very little to discuss. (we mean… the Gor novels are only… no.) looking for BDSM fiction usually raises mostly both of these kinds of publications. On the other side hand, looking for books that are BDSM-relevant the world of literary fiction is a lot harder, as the many relevant people in many cases are indirect or greatly metaphorical within their discussions—you usually won’t see them by making use of “BDSM” being a search phrase.
