The source of the title, The Wild Side

(Warning: adult content in the video)

When Publisher Toni and I were first discussing this anthology, we both thought the title's source would be obvious. I've since learned that a great many people have never heard of the Lou Reed song from which we took the anthology's name.

If you're one of those folks, check out this video, which does a decent job of showing some of the song's background while playing a decent recording.

If the video worries you, relax; all we took from the song was the name. Each of the book's stories is its own thing set in its own world.

Anyone bothered by the video can always pretend you got the title from "The Wild Side of Life" by Hank Thompson.

Listen at your own risk:
