Micro Review: Eerie, atmospheric, with a delicious doomed undercurrent of imminent disaster. Great world-building and a story that keeps you turning the pages.

Description: From Passionate Plume award finalist Elizabeth Schechter comes a steampunk novel of dark passion. In a respectable neighbourhood, on the top floor of a beautiful house, crouches the Succubus; by design, and by temperament, she is all that men crave and fear. To the wealthy and privileged men of London, the Succubus is a test they must pass to gain access to the House of Sable Locks, the most exclusive brothel in town. However, to William, a wealthy young man born and raised in India, she is the very essence of his desires. William is recovering from the loss of everything he knows and loves when he first meets the Succubus. With great care she tears him apart… and he falls in love again. But their idyll cannot last: there is a killer loose in London, and the darkness of William’s past is about to collide with the terror of his present. Based on the story “The Succubus” from the acclaimed erotic steampunk anthology Like Clockwork, HOUSE OF SABLE LOCKS lets us enter the mysterious brothel readers previously only had a glimpse of.

In the tradition of Georges Bataille, Kathy Acker, and Jean Genet, these 26 erotic encounters combine to form a highly charged alphabet on the pursuit of pleasure and possibilities of language. A nameless man graphically details his experiences as he cruises from parks to sex clubs in a relentless pursuit of pleasure and sexual gratification. Powerfully staging these anonymous encounters and describing each with luminous intensity, he continually tests the boundaries of sex, desire, and the body until he is faced with the ultimate challenge: to capture adequately in words the physical sensations he experiences.

Islands by Richard V. Raiment

 

Available at Amazon

Menage, adventure, historical romance, and more. Two straight men shipwrecked alone on an island together for years. What do they do? What else could they do? And then a woman arrives…

The early 1700s, Thomas Carton, an English sailor is shipwrecked in the tropics, his ship destroyed and all lives lost, save his own and one other. That other, Peter Lightfoot, is gay—and thus is the last man alive that Carton or any of his ilk would choose to share his isolation. Peter considers himself a depraved freak rightfully despised by God. Thomas agrees.

Forced by the passage of time and the dictates of circumstance into increasing mutual dependence, what kind of relationship, what level of intimacy, might possibly be arrived at by two such men?

And what happens to that relationship when Fate introduces a desirable woman into the mix?

An erotic adventure and romance containing m/m and m/f.

London Triptych by Jonathan Kemp

 

Available at Amazon

Rent boys, aristocrats, artists, and criminals populate this sweeping novel in which author Jonathan Kemp skillfully interweaves the lives and loves of three very different men in gay London across the decades.

In the 1890s, a young man named Jack apprentices as a rent boy and discovers a life of pleasure and excess that leads to new friendships, most notably with the soon-to-be-infamous Oscar Wilde. A century later in 1998, David tells his own tale of unashamed decadence from prison, recalling life as a young man arriving in the city in the mid-’80s just as the scourge of AIDS hit. Where their paths cross, in the politically sensitive 1950s, when gay men were the target of police and politicians alike, the artist Colin tentatively explores his sexuality while working on his painting “London Triptych.”

Moodily atmospheric and rich with history, London Triptych is a sexy, resplendent portrait of the politics and pleasures of queer life in one of the world’s most fascinating cities.
