Some people prefer to choose short stories rather than read an anthology from beginning to end. To make this easier, the word count, locations of the story and the sexual preferences featured are listed below. And as a reader may prefer to avoid or at least start with the less explicit stories, they are rated from R (unraunchy) to RRRR (very raunchy). Two stories, The Order of Abraham, and Moobs contain violent scenes of a non-sexual nature.

The thirteen short stories and novella that make up The Fetish Collection are varied other than each including at least one unusual sexual preference. These range from ablutophilia (bathing) to zonaphilia (girdles). See below for more details.

The characters deal with issues at different stages of life including a boy who can’t understand why men stare at his mother, a student grappling with honesty, a priest who no longer has faith, grief in old age and a woman facing imminent death. Some stories feature explicit sexual scenes, others are coyer. Surprises abound.

 The geographic spread is wide and the period covered stretches from WWII to the present day.

The collection includes one modern Gothic tale, the prize-winning Folie à Deux.
