In November 2012 I featured an interview with Eve Seymour, a new Caribbean writer of Erotica. Her rambunctious tale, Broken Rules puts her firmly in line to become the foremost Caribbean writer of Erotica. (Those of you who’ve read the book, please correct me if I’m wrong!)
Now, please allow me to introduce you to the work of Robert E. Sandiford, whom I consider the foremost Caribbean writer of Erotica at this time.
Robert E. is no newcomer on the local, regional and international scenes. Journalist, essayist, biographer, short story writer, novelist, video producer and editor extraordinaire, he is one of Barbados’s top contemporary writers.
To date he’s written and had published short story collections, essays, his memoirs, and (my favourite!) a series of erotic graphic novels: Attractive Forces, Stray Moonbeams and Great Moves.
What I like best about these comic books is the writing; the way Robert uses ordinary language in extraordinary ways; the way the illustrations (which are fantastic!) and the script complement each other so perfectly.
This isn’t a formal review so I’m not going to go on and on. You want to know more? You’ll have to beg for, borrow (not mine! So don’t ask…) or buy them and discover for yourselves.

If you’re in Barbados, go to The Book Place on Probyn Street in Bridgetown and get your copy. I think I bought their last copy of Stray Moonbeams, but I’m sure they’ve restocked by now. Drop them a line via firstname.lastname@example.org to find out.
And, by the way, Intimacy 101: Rooms & Suites, a collection of erotic prose from which many of the comics stories were adapted, is due out in April so keep your eyes and ears peeled.
Finally, I must add: Fans of erotic fiction, these books are a MUST-READ! (And yes, I’m shouting!)
Now, please return the favour…. What book(s) are you eager to shout about? Let me know soonest….
