***NEW STORY: KETRIN Part One***


It seems the search engines have finally got their ’bots in gear!
I’m also kind of flattered to have been listed on the Official Lady Cyrrh Website’s Links Page after only two months on line. Thanks, Lady C!

At first you are disoriented. You can’t tell where you are or what’s happening. Gradually you become aware of your surroundings. Birds are singing, the leaves are rustling on the trees, and you can hear quiet speech and laughter. As your vision slowly clears you realise that you are in some kind of park or garden. People are milling about, singly or in groups, enjoying the warm sunshine. Even as you become aware of the sun’s warmth on your own body, you realise that you are naked, and all these people are looking at you. But when you try to cover your nakedness with your hands you suddenly realise something else. You cannot move. No matter how you try, your limbs remain frozen like stone. You want to cry for help but your lips seem to be literally sealed.

This cannot be happening, you tell yourself. You must be dreaming. But then, as the sun slowly warms your body, you feel another kind of warmth welling up from your loins, building slowly, inexorably, until you wish you could cry aloud with pleasure. And you can feel the passers by caressing you with their gaze, and you feel beautiful and erotic, an object of worship, and even though you are physically helpless you never want this feeling to end. It might be a dream, but at last you realise that it is not a nightmare.

On this site you’ll find the final, definitive versions (although in practice, “final and definitive” tends to mean “subject to revision without notice”) of science fiction and fantasy stories I’ve written which feature the concept of living statues. All of these stories contain eroticism, but some are more explicit than others, as indicated by an X in the listing below. All stories marked with an X are linked from this page via warning messages, and have gibberish URLs to prevent anyone stumbling across them by accident.

I’m always in the process of tweaking and revising this site - in that sense it’s always ‘under construction’ - so be sure to check back as often as you like.

If you enjoy these stories please feel free to let me know at the address below. If you do not enjoy them, please don’t let me know at any address. Thank you.

In addition, because I’ve used pictures of works of art throughout the site I’ve also decided to include some background information and links related to the works in question and their creators:

Antoine-Denis Chaudet
Jean Léon Gérôme
Antonin Idrac
Hippolyte Alexandre Julien Moulin
Albert Toft
