New Circlet Press podcast!

We at Circlet Press, the independent publisher of erotic science fiction and fantasy, are very pleased to announce a partnership today with Nobilis Erotica, the longest running erotica podcast on the web.

Circlet Press just celebrated our 19th anniversary and in nearly two decades of publishing we have consistently pushed the importance of high quality erotic literature that provokes the imagination while celebrating sexuality. Nobilis Erotica is coming up on five years podcasting a weekly erotic story. In the early days Nobilis Reed, the main writer and producer of the podcast, mixed in some real world, contemporary erotica to the program, but found he enjoyed the material that combined the erotic with the fantastic much more.

“Every anthology I’ve read from Circlet Press has really impressed me,” he told Circlet’s editorial director, Cecilia Tan. “It seems like a natural fit for us to work together.”

Tan agreed and a partnership was born. The weekly podcast will now have a once-montly episode sponsored by Circlet in which the featured piece of fiction comes from a Circlet Press publication.

“Nobilis is the best at what he does and it made so much more sense for us to team up than for us to go off and try to start a new podcast,” Tan said. “Our expertise is in the editorial side of things. Instead of starting a whole new learning curve, we can keep our energy on producing more fabulous books, while Nobilis brings the stories to a new medium.”

The first partner podcast is live today and features the short story “Moon Fears Woman” by author MeiLin Miranda, another Internet/new media pioneer in the erotic science fiction/fantasy genre. Her “Intimate History of the Greater Kingdom” is one of the best-known and most popular web fiction serials. “Moon Fears Woman” first appeared in the anthology LIKE A MOONRISE, a collection of shapeshifter coming of age stories, edited by Artemis Savory for Circlet Press.

Mayport reclined at his ease on a window seat, watching Thiervy at his most hectically inventive. After Mayport had boldly surmised an obvious affair, Thiervy had demanded a change of topic. Mayport had yielded, and instead took up a pulpit full of unreasonable demands in the matter of cocoa and machinery.
