About Marjorie F. Baldwin

Marjorie F. Baldwin (aka "Friday") is a pen name used to write Science Fiction technothrillers, SF action/adventure series, some time travel short stories or novellas and old School SciFi. Friday's style will appeal to fans of Romantic SF (or SFR) since like Heinlein's character after whom she is named, she feels sex is part of the human condition. Of course, that assumes we're all human ^)^

Reviews of A First Time for Everything (Phoenician Short #1.1) by Marjorie F. Baldwin

Sadie S. Forsythe reviewed on May 30, 2016

I thought this was a fine erotic one-shot. But I admit to confusion. It's been almost 3 years since I read the rest of the Phoenician series, which I very much enjoyed. (I gave the first a five star rating/review.) But I don't at all remember it being erotic, let alone kinky. So, this BDSM novella felt very much like a departure from theme.

I liked William's shy embarrassment and I did appreciate Jared's attempt to negotiate 'vanilla sex' when he was used to kinky play. But I was totally thrown by the existence of recognizable BDSM in the Phoenician universe. I mean, this is a world in which fairy tales aren't remembered anymore, but BDSM language managed to transverse the galaxy unchanged?

Lastly, while it stands alone well enough to read if you haven't read the rest of the series, you will definitely feel you're missing something.
