This was first book I read that was about erotica. And delivers, almost, more than what it promises.
Blue: Stories for Adults
Liked the diversity of relationships it chooses to explore through this genre. We have published many debut authors, who have written wonderful creative novels and I look forward to publishing many more.
There were two writers who contributed two stories each.
‘Blue’, an honest attempt at chronicling love, lust – News18
Good effort since it’s the first of it’s kind published in Sri Lanka, but nothing major. Urmila Singh rated it did not like it Apr 10, Each year brings us promising new writers. Vogue is the fashion mag, Golf GTi is the mode of transportation. Samodh rated it did not lbue it Nov 01, The other tales were hit and miss, some bittersweet, some kinky, all teething.
But my takeaway from this collection is definitely ‘Undercover’ Ameena Hussein. The protagonist jokes around with his colleagues at a bar, sex-texts some teen who is more experienced that him and proceeds to dump him, and after several drinks stumbles into a prostitute on the way home when he normally avoids such sordid encounters. I now also have this amusing image of various bodice rippers being bandied around at your girls school like contraband.
Dev Gupta rated it it was ok Oct 05, This is a commercial-driven venture, for the underlying understanding is that voyeurism has market mileage. Artika has published My Little Sikh Handbook and is currently qmeena on her second children’s book, with Sikhism as its central theme.

Raj rated it liked it Sep 12, Though not xmeena stories weren’t great and poetry was simply passable. Anything new in the adult genre coming out soon? You are commenting using your Facebook account.

The first problem I have with Blue blus that the publisher has selected a theme — adult stuff — and sets out an advertisement calling in for contributions. Blue – meant for adults.
