White Balance – Chapter Eight

White Balance – Part One (Chapters 1-6) White Balance – Chapter Seven “Anything?” “Anything Martin. I’m yours. But could it at least involve your mouth on my dick for a tiny part of it?” I smiled, feeling very relaxed and relieved after my outburst and subsequent orgasm. “There’s nothing tiny about that option.” “Hardy har….

Book Review: Fagin’s Boy by Christina E. Pilz

First, I must confess to putting off reading Fagin’s Boy, which I downloaded for free from Amazon several weeks ago, because I read a lot of historical literature like Dickens, George Eliot and Charlotte Bronte, and I was really worried that this book would not live up to my expectations of it. I’ve always loved…

Call Me By Your Name – A Return to Eden?

*Contains spoilers* I have watched this film three times now, and it gets better at each viewing. Luca Guadagnino’s Call Me By Your Name is a feast for the senses – an erotic buffet filled to the brim with symbolism, intellect and culture. But most of all, innocence. Call Me By Your Name is the…

Teaser – Diamond Dogs

Myth #3 Vampires are selfish, solitary creatures. When Justice walked through the doors of Gemini’s home on the evening before his 24th birthday, after a quick visit to the gym, he was prepared for something. “Hey,” he called out to let them know he was back. There was no reply. He toed off his boots…

But First, Coffee – Friday Flash Fic., Jan. 25

The final shot I wanted to get was of the luxurious Master bathroom with the view out the sliding doors to the hardwood deck and the sliver of beach, the expanse of blue ocean stretching to infinity. It took about five tries to get that perfect shot. “And, done.” Mr. Yanofsky grinned. “I can’t wait…

Teaser, White Balance, Ch. 7

Jeremy stood just inside the door, staring at me. “Martin.” I didn’t answer him. I pretended I hadn’t heard him. “Martin,” he said louder. I glanced up. “What?” “What is your fucking problem all of a sudden?” He sounded angry and frustrated and I really couldn’t blame him. But all the careful restraint I’d imposed…

Personality – Monday Flash Fics, Jan. 22

The most interesting person in the square was someone wearing a white cashmere coat over a dark red blouse with a floppy red bow at the neck. Perched on their head was a matching red fedora-like hat. I thought the outfit showed a lot of personality and a certain unwillingness to dress to convention. The…

Science Fiction Double Feature – Friday Flash Fic., Jan. 19

“Rocky, just sit back and enjoy the show,” Dr. Frank N. Furter suggested in his sensuously deep voice with a smirk of his luscious red lips. “It’s a science fiction double feature!” His pink tongue slid over those lips as he raised his eyebrows, clapping his manicured hands together. “My favourite!” Rocky grunted, glancing at the…

Tease – Monday Flash Fic., Jan. 15

Are you in the building? I glanced down at my phone. It had buzzed as I’d exited the elevator on Sam’s floor. Grinning at his eagerness, I texted back: Down the hall. Be there soon. My phone buzzed again. Don’t come in. I stopped in my tracks, confused. That was unexpected. What? Why? Because I have something to…
