I have a bunch of free sex stories on my website, and a pornographic steampunk comedy e-book, The Erotofluidic Age , for sale through Circlet Press.

I want to post more reviews here, but I'm feeling a bit unfocused. Ask me to review something I've read, and I will take a stab at it.

A word about how I'm rating books here: my star ratings are based on how I, personally, responded to the book, not any attempt to measure its objective merit. Some flimsy checkout-counter books that delighted me as a teen get five stars because I love them with an unreasoning passion. Acknowledged classics may get only a couple stars if I failed to respond strongly to them. I absolutely acknowledge that the fault may well be with me.

On Language

In translating this history from the Unobtanian, I have, for the sake of clarity and concision, taken certain liberties with the text. For example:
* The terms "ekdol," "ekdolha," "ekdolnu," "merk," "borate as kallataba," and "avai" I have translated as "cousin" throughout.
* "Veh" [red fruit] and "elatu bok eraz monaa" [not-red fruit] have both been rendered as "fruit."
* For "mohe," which can mean Read more of this blog post »

Quotes by Vinnie Tesla  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Our culture teaches that sex is for the sexy, and the only way to be sexy is to be pretty.
No wait--that's still too weak. Sex should properly arise from sexiness. For unsexy people--fat people, old people, funny-looking people, disabled people--to even feel sexual desire is inappropriate, perverse, disgusting. For them to engage in sexual display is offensive. For them to have sex...well, there oughta be a law.”
Vinnie Tesla

“I work hard to stay cynical enough! I keep my expectations of our culture and our leaders low, low, low, and I do it so I don't have to be let down. And yet again I am lowballed by the brokenness of the American cultural machine.”
Vinnie Tesla

“A lesser man might have begrudged
him that, but remembering the old adage, "The finder’s goods shall
he retain / Nor mind the loser’s dreadful pain," I rejoiced, rather, in his good
fortune.”
Vinnie Tesla, The Erotofluidic Age

“Celibacy is the Tesla family secret, passed down through the
generations.”
“Celibacy, passed down through the generations?”Victor asked dryly.
I flushed. “Its efficacy is not disproved by its imperfect application,”
I muttered.”
Vinnie Tesla, The Erotofluidic Age

“Tesla,” the vicar mused. “That’s a foreign name, is it not? Hungarian,
is it?”
“Serbian,” I corrected him. “I’m afraid the ——shire Teslas are a
scant three centuries in these parts, having constructed Tesla Hall in
the reign of Queen Elizabeth.We are a restless people, and no doubt
will be moving on again any century now.”
Vinnie Tesla, The Erotofluidic Age

“I am certain
you are not one of those dreary fellows one reads of who demands that
their lady friends be in possession of a maidenhead. Mine was taken
by a marrow two years ago.”
“A marrow, Miss Pertwee? The vegetable that the Italians call il
zucchine?”
“The very same.A most particularly bold and impetuous hot-house
marrow. It was quite the ravishment, I can assure you.”
“I consider it no dishonor at all to be preceded by so noble a vegetable.”
Vinnie Tesla, The Erotofluidic Age

“A lesser man might have begrudged
him that, but remembering the old adage, "The finder’s goods shall
he retain / Nor mind the loser’s dreadful pain," I rejoiced, rather, in his good
fortune.”
Vinnie Tesla, The Erotofluidic Age

“Perhaps if you were to refrain from deploying the phrase ‘ignorant
buffoon’ with a liberality most writers reserve for ‘it’ and ‘the,’
you would find a readier audience.”
Vinnie Tesla, The Erotofluidic Age

Vinnie Tesla The Erotofluidic Age by Vinnie Tesla Exciting news: My publisher is doing a giveaway of the new paperback edition of The Erotofluidic Age. Um. So I guess the implicit exciting news is that there is now a paperback edition.

There is a paperback edition. We are giving away three copies for free. I designed the cover myself, and the whole package is, in all modesty, gorgeous. This is a revised and corrected edition with some formatting errors removed and a couple embarrassing vocab anachronisms fixed. You totally want this thing!

And if you've already read the ebook, this would be a great time to post a review if the spirit moves you. Also thank you for spending time reading my strange little book.

The giveaway is at https://www.goodreads.com/giveaway/sh...

If you're impatient, pessimistic, or generous, you can buy the book at the usual online suspects or here: https://www.createspace.com/5575742

Soon, you will be able order it at your local bookstore as well. I'll let you know when that happens.
