Edo, Japan Isamu, hailed as the veteran of 500 fires, has spent 17 years as a machibikeshi, protecting the delicate paper-walled homes of Edo during windy monsoon season. Ryo, the water dragon etched on his skin, has been a source of comfort throughout this time—and an object of longing. The chief of the brigade wants the aging Isamu to retire, but Isamu fears that if he does, the great dragon will no longer be interested in protecting him.
In ancient Nippon, a cold, virgin princess shut herself away in palace tower. Meanwhile, the Dragon God Mizuchi released his elemental fury upon the land. Floods swept the land as the mighty Kawashima River broke its banks. As the dragon’s rage and power grew, the girl found her sexual desire inflamed by the god’s wrath as never before by any mortal suitor. (F+)
Wicked Fairy Tales – Anthology
by Claryssa Berg, Mina Kelly, Annabeth Leong, Kailin Morgan, Matthew Nadelhaft, Nobilis Reed, Elizabeth A. Schechter and R.W. Whitefield
An anthology of bedtime stories for adults!
Just what kind of happy goes into “happily ever after?” As children, it was enough that Pinocchio got to be a real boy and that Red wasn’t eaten by the wolf. As adults, we have a slightly different perspective. Being a real boy means having boy parts, and being eaten by someone big and bad doesn’t mean quite the same thing it once did.
Ever wonder what mermaids do with the swimmers they seduce? Or why a dragon might prefer a castle-guarded princess to a nice, easy field of sheep? What if your fairy godmother wasn’t circumspect in what wishes could be granted, or if that dainty little fairy had a much bigger appetite than one might guess?
When the dragon kidnaps a princess, he find himself wondering if a cow would have been a better idea after all. Who knew a princess was so demanding, or so kinky? (F/M)
