If I'm rereleasing it as an ebook today, without Tracy Lee's work (mostly because I can't get in touch with her), it's feeling a little weird to have this heavy internet framing. It's true that online (and other) censorship can still be an issue (see recent post I did re: Canada), but mostly, it's twenty years later, and there's a ton of erotica published these days. It's gone very mainstream.
What do you think? Do I keep all the original framing, and just add a second afterword or some such? That has the advantage of really preserving the history of the book in the second edition, but it also means there's a lot of bulk of other, not-so-relevant material before you get to the fiction and poetry.
Or do I delete the original introductions (three of them!), and the page of quotes about censorship, write a new (brief) intro that just mentions the history of the first edition (pretty much as I did here), and let the second edition of Torn Shapes be a simpler collection of my early work?
