‘Funny, brutal, and irreverent’ – Bustle.com

Inspired by Eastern European and Russian superstitions and folklore, here are twelve tales; darkly delicious imaginings for the adult connoisseur of bedtime stories.  Be drawn into a world where the boundaries between the everyday and the unearthly are snakeskin-thin, where the trees have eyes and the night has talons, where demons, drawn by the perfume of human vice and wickedness, lurk with intents malicious and capricious. Tread carefully, for here the dark things best left behind in the forest may seep under your door and sup with you; the lover at your window or in your bed may have the scent of your death already on their breath.

“We are the shiver on your uneasy flesh,
The creep of the unknown on your skin.”

Whispered to you from the edges, from the haunted mouths of those who see more than you or I, here are twelve tales of lust and rivalry, of envy and deceit, and of secrets gouged from the darkest depths of the human heart.

Is the shadow on the wall,
really yours, after all?

Blood lust and sexual desire; for vampires the two are inseparable.

Prepare to devour ‘Red Grow the Roses’, an explicit vampire erotica novel with plenty of bite.

Sadistic chanteuse Estelle; feckless Ben; Roisin, the mirror-ghost; Wakefield, haunted by his own damnation; Naylor, the most feral of them all. And Reynauld is the Good Shepherd, the one who holds them all in check.

But his grip on his own humanity is fading, and when Wakefield accidentally kills a woman and Naylor gets the blame, a power-struggle erupts between the city’s immortal undead.

The Innocent’s Progress and Other Stories by Peter Tupper

 

Available at Amazon

In a steampunk society where sex is ritualized and marriage is sacred, the slightest misstep can bring your world tumbling down. In this collection, Peter Tupper explores the many facets of a time that never was, and a society that is all too familiar. Rich in eroticism, and immersive in its detail, The Innocent’s Progress and Other Stories is a sterling example of what steampunk can be.

In an unnamed place, in a time that never was, sex is elevated as high as ritual, and can be had for the price of a theater ticket. In The Innocent’s Progress and Other Stories, Peter Tupper explores the many facets of a complicated, sensual, and, in many ways, rigidly conservative society. Here, we are given passes to a theater of fantasies; we are allowed into the labyrinthine world of steam-powered workhouses; and we are given glimpses into the minds and mettle of the kind of people who survive in such a world.

Carolina Black is content enough with her humble art gallery in a ramshackle town, but her life takes a turn for the unexpected when a fall-by-mopping leaves her trapped inside a fairy tale painting late one night. Desperate to return to her world before a looming deadline closes her gallery’s doors forever, Carolina must sort her way through a labyrinth of nonsensical nursery rhymes before the king – a malevolent wolf – can catch her.

As no mystery would be complete without stranger or handsome hero, the curator is accompanied by the man of her dreams, who wants to find himself almost as much as Carolina Black wants to return home with an adventure on her heels.
