The Hysteria Machine ( published in Elementary Erotica, Circlet Press, April 2011)

‘Holmes’s apparent distaste for women and seeming lack of interest in sex make him an unlikely hero for an erotic story, but each of these authors found their own unique way of dealing with this problem. The backdrop of Victorian England is one filled with tension and danger for homosexual men.This was a time and a place where it was illegal to be gay, plain and simple. We’d do well to remember that Holmes was not always a devotee of the law.
By transforming the Victorian figure into an erotic one, these stories make social commentary on the repressiveness of the Victorian age and fear of sexuality in our own times. They are simultaneously parodic, through their use of known settings and tropes, and erotic, through their liberation of the previously unwritten sexuality of the characters.’

Deor  (published Oct 30, 2010, as part of Torquere Press’s Halloween Sip Blitz, currently unavailable)

In war and in love, the wolf-bond overrides everything. When Swift’s mate is wrongfully imprisoned, no locks or bars of human fashioning will keep him from taking back what is his.

Aiken is a spearsman in a pre-Conquest, early Saxon Britain, where small, tribal settlements in the greenwood are the norm, and the rise of the towns represents a danger to the pagan way of life they have long adhered to.  This is particularly true when, as in Aiken’s case, the settlement is home to a werewolf pack.
This is a society where homosocial bonding is heavily encouraged. As such, Aiken’s bondbrother, Swift, is determined to rescue the man who is also his mate when he is imprisoned by suspicious outsiders. This short story describes Aiken’s imprisonment and rescue, his reunion with his mate, and their subsequent return to their people, seen through the double lens of their human and wolf selves.
