Seedy Business (Hot Summer Days)
Revenge can get sticky.
This prequel to Grown Men* is a crazy sci-fi short about sperm piracy and sibling rivalry gone seriously wrong.
When corporate mercenary Beirn agrees to a sleazy organ harvest job, he walks straight into his worst nightmare, a trap set by the twin brother he betrayed. ...more

In this short, Ox's twin brother, Beirn, is on a mission to rescue is brother after having practically sold him to a sperm harvester. When he arrives to the place where his brother is held, it's too late: Ox has managed to escape and has built a trap for Beirn and his accomplice Zed.
The protagonists of this story are anti-heroes: the giant Be ...more
A sperm pirate kidnapped or somehow obtained donors (victims). They are strapped down with machines feeding them drugs and milking them every two hours. Beirn is sneaking up on the place, planning to free his brother Ox. I’ve never read anything like this. I loved the set up and the author’s creative and funny body part terms.
The relationship between the two guys was too vague. I want ...more
Fantastic world-building, terrific characters, and I absolutely loved the humour, writing style, and dialogue (especially Beirn's internal thoughts)! It was such a page-turner, and I was so sad to see it end.
Can we get a sequel? Please, please?! :D I would love a continuation of their story/adventures, and my inner-kink is dying to know what else these two could get up to "between the sheets". Oh, the possibilities! Ha ...more
"Seedy Business" achieves what the majority of full length novels only aspire to. I understand there's another related story and cannot wait to read it.
This story is available for FREE as part of the M/M Romance group's "Don't Read ...more
This little sci-fi short was a helluva ride. I love what you did with that prompt, and I love the way you turned the tables on your mc...so smart and sassy.
Now for the shameless begging part.
Would you please write more in this world, with these characters?

I thought this was really good until the very end (the last page or two), at which point I found one of the characters' attitude shift jarring in its abruptness. But I rounded up because this little story is free and certainly worth reading. It also gives some interesting and useful backstory for Grown Men, a novella which I found excellent and certainly superior to this story. It also has some elements from this story that make this story feel like a rough draft for that novella. The w ...more
I am upping the rating to 4 stars because Damon did write a sequel. I did not realise that Ox out of grown men was the brother in this free story. Many people that now read Seedy business will love being able to jump straight into Grown Men :) The extra world building and backstory makes everything more enjoyable in my mind.
Great concept and ideas but it felt way to rushed. This story could easily be turned into a 30,000+ story because it has so many possibilities.

I think I have learned more phrases for my M/M lexicon in this one story than in the past 2 years of reading this gen ...more
Really slow in the beginning, seemed like it was mostly just paragraph after paragraph for different ways of saying sperm-pirating. Was pretty annoying for me
I didn’t like the MC and by the end still didn’t like him
Second half of story was good and the MC was more tolerable for me
Even though it ends on a cliffhanger kind of I have don’t desire to read more about this MC and I really couldn’t care less what happens next
Normally I don't like sci-fi based stories, but this short story changed my mind. Funny, original and hot, this was a great read. I mean, a MC who deals in stolen semen? You have to check this out! Plus toss in Damon Suede's way with words and I cannot read to read Grown Men.
You might have guessed from the description that Seedy Business is not your typical M/M romance. You'd be right. Seedy Business holds nothing back in describing the grim world its characters inhabit; one of organ and semen harvesting for a thriving blac ...more
Now with Seedy Business I have read five ...more
Damon Suede grew up out-n-proud deep in the anus of right-wing America, and escaped as soon as it was legal. He has lived all over and along the way, he’s earned his crust as a model, a messenger, a promoter, a programmer, a sculptor, a singer, a stripper, a bookkeeper, a bartender, a techie, a teacher, a director... but writing has ever been his bread and butter. He has been happily partnered for...more
