This book is for adult audiences only. (18+)
The first thing you should know about this latest Smut Peddler anthology is that even though Jeff Goldblum is on the cover, there is no Jeff Goldblum inside the book. I mean, that illustrated person on the cover is clearly not really Jeff Goldblum, but you and I both know what's happening there.
The second thing you should know is that there are plenty of other silver foxes in these pages. Following the first two Smut Peddler anthologies, the three themed books have delivered exactly what they promise: Monster Boyfriends, Sex Machines and now Silver foxes. If any of those things flips your switch, you'll be happy!
On to Silver. This book is long, coming in at 280 pages and featuring 14 stories, this is a BIG book. So yes, it's $15 in PDF (or $30 in paperback) but that works out to just over $1.00 per story. For me, that means that even if some of these tales didn't work for me, it's still a good deal.
Lots of trans stories, which is cool because we rarely see trans representation past the age of say, 30. (Trans people have always existed, publishing!) In general, this anthology is very queer. As usual, there's a variety of pairings and settings and there's sure to be something in this giant book that appeals. The art is as varied as the creators, so while not all of the stories worked for me from a visual or storytelling perspective, I'm sure the hits and misses will be different for everyone.
Physical books have been delayed due to COVID-19 and the hell of international production and shipping, plus domestic distribution, but I've read the PDF and it's great! I'm sure the physical version will be high-quality as Iron Circus has yet to disappoint.
Here's hoping we get another volume of this fun, sexy, often absurd series.

The FTC would like me to disclose here that I received a review copy from the publisher, but I also backed the Kickstarter, so make of that what you will.
