There has been a recent revival of interest in the work of Polish film director Walerian Borowczyk, a label-defying auteur and “escape artist” if there ever was one. This collection serves as an introduction and a guide to Borowczyk’s complex and ambiguous body of work, including panoramic views of the director’s output, focused studies of particular movies, and more personal, impressionistic pieces. Taken together, these contributions comprise a wide-ranging survey that is markedly experimental in character, allowing scholars to gain insight into previously unnoticed aspects of Borowczyk’s oeuvre.

A biographical history of Aleister Crowley’s activities in Berlin from 1930 to 1932 as Hitler was rising to power • Examines Crowley’s focus on his art, his work as a spy for British Intelligence, his colorful love life and sex magick exploits, and his contacts with magical orders • Explores Crowley’s relationships with Berlin’s artists, filmmakers, writers, and performers such as Christopher Isherwood, Jean Ross, and Aldous Huxley • Recounts the fates of Crowley’s friends and colleagues under the Nazis as well as what happened to Crowley’s lost art exhibition Gnostic poet, painter, writer, and magician Aleister Crowley arrived in Berlin on April 18, 1930. As prophet of his syncretic religion “Thelema,” he wanted to be among the leaders of art and thought, and Berlin, the liberated future-gazing metropolis, wanted him. There he would live, until his hurried departure on June 22, 1932, as Hitler was rapidly rising to power and the black curtain of intolerance came down upon the city. Known to his friends affectionately as “The Beast,” Crowley saw the closing lights of Berlin’s artistic renaissance of the Weimar period when Berlin played host to many of the world’s most outstanding artists, writers, filmmakers, performers, composers, architects, philosophers, and scientists, including Albert Einstein, Bertolt Brecht, Ethel Mannin, Otto Dix, Aldous Huxley, Jean Ross, Christopher Isherwood, and many other luminaries of a glittering world soon to be trampled into the mud by the global bloodbath of World War II. Drawing on previously unpublished letters and diary material by Crowley, Tobias Churton examines Crowley’s years in Berlin and his intense focus on his art, his work as a spy for British Intelligence, his colorful love life and sex magick exploits, and his contacts with German Theosophy, Freemasonry, and magical orders. He recounts the fates of Crowley’s colleagues under the Nazis as well as what happened to Crowley’s lost art exhibition--six crates of paintings left behind in Germany as the Gestapo was closing in. Revealing the real Crowley long hidden from the historical record, Churton presents “the Beast” anew in all his ambiguous and, for some, terrifying glory, at a blazing, seminal moment in the history of the world.

Erzählt in Christians eigenen Worten, erfüllt mit seinen Gedanken, Vorstellungen und Träumen zeigt E L James die Liebesgeschichte, die Millionen von Lesern auf der ganzen Welt in Bann geschlagen hat, aus völlig neuer Perspektive. Christian Grey hat in seiner Welt alles perfekt unter Kontrolle. Sein Leben ist geordnet, diszipliniert und völlig leer – bis zu jenem Tag, als Anastasia Steele in sein Büro stürzt. Ihre Gestalt, ihre perfekten Gliedmaßen und ihr weich fallendes braunes Haar stellen sein Leben auf den Kopf. Er versucht, sie zu vergessen und wird stattdessen von einem Sturm der Gefühle erfasst, den er nicht begreift und dem er nicht widerstehen kann. Anders als all die Frauen, die er bisher kannte, scheint die schüchterne, weltfremde Ana direkt in sein Innerstes zu blicken – vorbei an dem erfolgreichen Geschäftsmann, vorbei an Christians luxuriösem Lebensstil und mitten in sein zutiefst verletztes Herz. Kann Christian mit Ana an seiner Seite die Schrecken seiner Kindheit überwinden, die ihn noch immer jede Nacht verfolgen? Oder werden seine dunklen Begierden, sein Zwang zur Kontrolle und der Selbsthass, der seine Seele erfüllt, diese junge Frau vertreiben und damit die zerbrechliche Hoffnung auf Erlösung zerstören, die sie ihm bietet?

"Die Geschichte der O gehört ganz offensichtlich zu den Büchern, die ihre Leser prägen, die ihn nicht genauso zurücklassen, wie sie ihn vorfanden oder ihn sogar völlig verändern. Sicher ist die Geschichte der O der heftigste Liebesbrief, den ein Mann je erhalten hat." Dieses Buch ist keine pikante Boudoir-Idylle, denn in der "O" weht ein entschiedener Geist, der nichts scheut, weder Seufzer noch Greuel, weder Ekstase noch Ekel: O wird von ihrem Geliebten in einem geheimnisvollen Schloß abgeliefert und dort mit Kette und Peitsche gezwungen, sich ganz ihren Gebietern, den Männern, zu unterwerfen. Sie erlebt alle möglichen Formen der Entwürdigung und des Schmerzes, doch je heftiger sie gequält wird, um so mehr wird sie zum femininen Symbol, um so offener, gehorsamer und opferbereiter wird sie, bis zur völligen Selbstaufgabe. In ihrer "Geschichte der O " will Pauline Reáge den Leser in ihre geheimnisvoll oszillierende Welt hineinziehen. Gibt es also in den Tiefen der Frauenseele etwas, das auf Unterwerfung und Selbstaufgabe besteht? Ist es Natur oder Erziehung durch Jahrtausende? Diese Frage sollte sich - gerade heute, in der Zeit lebhafter Diskussionen um das Selbstverständnis der Frau - der Leser selbst beantworten.

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.

Viking invaders, punishing Pharaohs, naughty maids and lusty lords come together in this collection of hot historical erotica. In this selection of stories no one is quite as prim and proper – or as tightly laced up – as you might think. A feisty female highwayman finds love when she orders a duchess to stand and deliver, while a headstrong Southern Belle embarks on an erotic battle of wills with a Union soldier hunting a Confederate spy. And when the Bard of Avon meets a girl with a yen to tread the boards and a taste for the kinkiest of sex, all’s well that ends well. Cherry Ripe by Maria Lloyd When 18-year-old Georgette is sent to yet another finishing school, she is surprised by an erotic encounter with the handsome local aristocrat during her carriage journey.

Some of them were in the bedroom, and he learned them all late one night at the Tourist Court. The Day the Sun Stands Still by Toni Sands Persian slave-girl Zuleika makes her way to market.

As You Like It by Tilly Hunter Beatrice’s dearest ambition is to perform on the stage with Will, the greatest playwright and actor ever known and a favourite of the queen’s court. But women are forbidden from appearing in plays.

Garver by Landon Dixon Raw Garver. He shifted his hips, feeling a tightening in his dusty jeans, a warmth down below that had nothing to do with the hot sun or the hard ride he’d endured. He was known for his fast guns, and his big gun; the tall, lean man with the deathhead’s grin. Yoni Puja by Honey Falls Leila is a young, collared slave girl in 19th century Persia. Given to Jalil as payment for her father’s gambling debts, he delights in teaching the headstrong young virgin that obedience leads to ecstasy and fulfilment.

My Lady is quivering more with passion than fear after their encounter in a steamy coach on a lonely road.
