Four Seasons: Spring 2009 is an anthology of twelve short stories that share the Spring theme of birth, renewal and blossoming libidos. The anthology runs about 90,000 words (novel length) making the average tale a little over 7,500 words each which, in my opinion, is a good length for a short story. The stories run the erotic gamut from sex with Gods and other creatures to incest to new love and old flames, to weddings and sex with transvestites.
The stories include:
