the reading list

I'm hosting a BDSM panel at a writer's convention in a couple weeks, and several people asked me to post my BDSM reading recommendations here since they can't make the convention. Not all of these are BDSM, but may contain elements, or in the case of anthologies or collections, contain a story or two that is BDSM related. This list is nowhere near complete. I do forget incredible books. (feel free to add your favs in comments)

I didn't add them to the list, but suppose I should mention the Gor series. There are Gor lifestylers, many Gor Universe chat rooms, and legions of fans. I simply don't happen to be one of them. Not every book is for every reader.

Anyway - The List
