The Girl Who Couldn't Come - This is a book of dirty stories. It is a book where sex is fun and good and people are kind to each other. Also there are ghosts and there is math and there are obsessive compulsive disorders. (Direct link to eponymous story - NSFW text)

Previously, other works by Mr. Comeau, as featured on Metafilter: A Softer World, Overqualified & One Bloody Thing After Another

Bonus Comeau (and Jess Fink): We are become pals!

If horror is more your thing, I highly recommend his Bible Camp Bloodbath book.

In related news, some women on a certain anti-depressant are coming when they yawn.

Is this the same Comeau (or inspiration thereof) from the Scott Pilgrim books?

I knew there was a reason I learned to play Johnny Cash on the accordion.

I was expecting a story about a slimepuppy. I think I'm relieved.

I knew Joey Comeau (internet-ly) back when he was writing weird shit on Diaryland. Dude just keeps getting better.

Cue the song! (a slightly different take than Norah Jones)

Sex is about to get a lot more boring.

Sex is never boring!

Thus, clomipramine is a little like a pharmacologic version of "The Lady or the Tiger?": You might get something very, very bad, or something very, very good.

I love that story, even though I still don't know how it turns out.

This reminds me of a girl I used to live with who would orgasm if you squeezed her hard behind the knee. I make even less effort nowadays (because I'm old)!

Surely "The Girl Who Couldn't Come" was the original title of the movie Shortbus?

Sex is about to get a lot more boring.

On the contrary -- boring is about to get a lot more sexy!

My personal fave story: And then the werewolf

Because why can't dirty stories have surprise endings?

Telling your sex partner boring stories because they get off on it is the new hitting your sex partner because they get off on it.

Also dear lord there is something wrong with that sentence. I suggest reading it to anyone you suspect of being an evil robot, on account of it will probably make their parser fall right off.

Thanks for these, I really enjoyed them and will now order the book for my public library.

Was it a fancy-dress party? No, just come in your pants.
