Are genitalia needed for love? To feel "whole"? You might be in Hell without them

Egyptian myths really handicapped Osiris, god of rejuvenation--even left him penis-less for a time. Eh gad. His wife Isis repaired him by most accounts, but in this version of afterlife fate may differ.

My contribution to this anthology is “Lovers Sans Phalli.” To repair the penis-less Osiris of Duat, a dozen cursed pharaohs team with the infamous, tomb-raiding Howard Carter (of King Tut's tomb) and discredited evolutionist Ernst Haeckel.

Like historical and dark fantasy? Check this series out. The Heroes in Hell series all stand alone (Lawyers in Hell, Rogues in Hell, Dreamers in Hell, Poets in Hell, Doctors in Hell, Pirates in Hell, Lovers in Hell), but also have story arcs spanning across books. This volume is all about Lovers, and Love, in Hell:
