The Moon-Haunted Heart (50 short stories)

paperback:

e-book:
Nook (Barnes & Noble)

Sometimes, the truest stories are about what ‘almost’ happened; not what was, but what just as easily might have been. The would’ves, the should’ves, the could’ves, the haunting maybes and the melancholy might-haves are the fertile soil in which the most powerful and affecting fiction takes root. Then too, sometimes, the most intriguing stories leave a bit of mystery beyond the margins—small enigmas for the reader to ponder hours and days after the book has been closed. Sometimes, the shortest stories are the ones that stay with us the longest.

The fifty very-short pieces in this collection of mature literary fiction range from as many as 4,000 to as few as 50 words. The purpose of these stories is not necessarily to arouse, but rather to explore various aspects of the human condition through the lens of the erotic in a way that is both enlightening and entertaining.

There are brief vignettes—entire worlds conjured up within the space of an eye-blink—alongside more conventionally expansive narratives. There are a number of stories about the erotic dimensions of ‘disability,’ particularly visual impairment. There are pan-sexual celebrations—the hetero- and homoerotic along with the intentionally ambivalent. There are richly atmospheric scene-settings, effusive literary evocations, and casual pop-culture-inspired dialogues; orneriness and ecstasy, contemporary vulgarity and timeless transcendence standing cheek by jowl, low comedy, erotic horror and lambent exultation comfortably sharing the same space, breathing the same air, seeking the same truth.




Kiss-Off the Devil (9 Short Stories)

paperback:

e-book (all platforms):

The truth isn’t always 'nice,' and those who would dig down to the roots of human folly should expect to get their hands at least a little dirty.

This collection transports readers to the realm of the forbidden, probing the dark, seldom-explored reaches of illicit desire and obsession where opposites attract and lust burns on any fuel it can find. Ranging in mood from the comically macabre title story to the poignant realism of All the Things They Never Got to Say and the bewildering moral ambiguities of  The Why in Everything and  Detour (Alternate Timeline), these tales  challenge our comfort zones and scandalize the earnest little angels sitting on our shoulders, while inviting their opposite numbers to come out and play.
If the stories in this book were made into movies they would no doubt be rated somewhere between R and NC-17. Not so much for graphic content (though there is a fair amount of that) as for “adult situations.”

Then something caught my eye. Passing the Great Room, I froze, dead in my tracks. May-Lin was sitting on the corner of the bed nearest the entrance, looking out into the hall. Keeping perfectly still like a model holding a pose for a painter, she was serenely topless, a beautiful mermaid, dark hair hanging loose around her shoulders, some rumpled sheets draped over her legs. My sudden appearance didn’t seem to startle her at all. She looked straight at me, but made no move to cover herself. I stared back, admiring her as much as I dared, trying not to be too obvious while pretending that this sort of thing happened all the time. Neither of us said a word.

Ben Bohring’s life gets interesting, taking a dark detour into obsession when he meets beautiful May-Lin Song during a summer week of teenage debauchery at a lakeside cabin. The vivacious young woman’s combination of classic Asian beauty and all-American attitude is more than Ben can resist, and he vows to have her some day in spite of the odds.


Ben’s quest propels him on a series of amorous, sometimes-violent misadventures, where unsettling secrets about the past are revealed and hard truths about the future learned at painful cost, ultimately leading to someone who may hold the key to questions that have haunted the young man his whole life.





Summer of '69: A Coming-of-Age Story

e-book (perma-free)
Smashwords
Barnes and Noble
Also available in paperback as part of Take Me Like the World Ends at Midnight (see above)

It’s the summer of Woodstock and the Moon landing, but for sixteen-year-old Nate, vacationing with his family on the eastern shore of Lake Michigan, the real excitement is considerably closer to home. The Establishment’s in serious trouble when long-lost “Aunt” Penny shows up for a visit. A free-spirited flower child, Penny’s the hippest, most exciting, worldly woman Nate’s ever known, an irrepressible exhibitionist with a talent for finding fun and getting everybody else into trouble along the way.

“1969 was my summer of love; the summer Aunt Penny taught me how to juggle; the summer I finally got the hang of driving a clutch, lost my virginity and my stutter, all on the same incredible night. It was the summer of one small step that changed the course of history for all mankind, and of one giant leap that changed a lonely boy’s life forever.”

“Summer of ‘69” is the funny, sometimes poignant story of classic rock, not-so-cool cars, and the agonies of puberty; sex and the generation gap, the clash of cultures and the games people play for a thrill. A story about coming of age and coming into your own; learning to stand up for yourself and the ones you love; finding your place in a world that doesn’t want to understand, and finding your true voice in the last place you’d ever expect.







Muse in the Neon Twilight (An Erotic Entertainment)

e-book:
Amazon
Also available in paperback as part of Kiss-Off the Devil (see above)

Beautiful Julia Rogers schemes to make her long-distance boyfriend jealous, though it could mean making a deal with a man she despises. Caught in the web of her own deceit, Julia discovers that no plan ever goes smoothly once emotion takes over, and her most deeply repressed passions come into play. Soon, she must decide what she truly wants in a surreal world where the lines between hate and attraction, lust and disgust, revulsion and surrender are virtually erased. A world where seduction’s a zero-sum game—where no means no means yes. 






Mr. Friday's Midlife Crisis (An Erotic Entertainment)

e-book:
Amazon
Also available in paperback as part of Take Me Like the World Ends at Midnight (see above)

Sixtysomething and seriously oversexed, Mr. Friday’s long overdue for a midlife crisis. The old man still has two or three items left to cross off his bucket list of ingenious kinks when he meets beautiful Sami Rosenberg; a smart-mouthed, vivacious nineteen-year-old college coed with major cash-flow problems and a boyfriend who bores her to tears.

When Mr. F offers an ungodly amount of cash for her to play the courtesan, Sami tells herself it’s all about the money. But more troubling questions persist. How far will she go to get what she wants? How deep do her inhibitions truly run? What’s the real price of a thrill?

Definitely NOT a sweet romantic yarn about nice, agreeable people, “Mr. Friday’s Midlife Crisis” is the gritty, sometimes disturbing story of what happens when headstrong opposites attract, when honesty takes a back seat to greed, and lust goes on the take. Sexual sparks fly, triangles are shattered and dark emotions laid bare in this contemporary character-driven erotic entertainment from Terrance Aldon Shaw.






Turn Me On--Tell Me a Story: An Erotic Anthology

e-book only:
Amazon (Kindle)
Smashwords (All platforms, perma-free)


What you will find in this collection falls comfortably into the sane middle somewhere between highfalutin, metaphor-heavy 'erotica' and over-pungent porn; better edited than a stroke book, more down to earth than the kind of 'literary fiction' that usually ends up winning the British 'Literary Review's' annual 'Bad Sex in Fiction' award. There’s an actual story that connects the juicy parts, but those scenes are just as well-crafted and carefully thought out as the rest of the book, if not more so. This is unapologetically sexy fiction, intended to entertain, turn-on, titillate, lubricate, harden, and stroke. If it also gets you to laugh, think, imagine, fantasize or dream, so much the better. 

The stories are set mostly in the American Midwest; the characters are not larger than life—and, at least most of the time, neither are their body parts. They take their foreplay slow; they talk to each other like real people, and think about what they’re doing and feeling. They get it on with gusto, and do it till they—and the people watching them— are satisfied. They understand that the brain is also a sex organ, and needs its share of stimulation from time to time. 

The novels and stories excerpted in this newly-updated anthology began life as imagined conversations. What would smart, sexy, articulate people talk about if they were free to think and say whatever they liked? Smart people want pretty much the same thing as everybody else; they just want to deconstruct their favorite episodes of 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' or quote William Butler Yeats while in the process of getting it, undoubtedly bandying about one of the great Irish poet’s most famous pronouncements while gently maneuvering their partners into bed; “sex and death are the only things that can interest a serious mind.” 

These stories have the sex part covered, and one of them even delves into death at the end. The characters have decidedly serious minds, always actively engaged, yet most of them are people you might imagine hanging out with and talking to, or fantasize about making love with. They are the sort you wish you knew in real life, and not just because they don’t mind if you fantasize about making love to them—in fact, they hope you will. The clean little secret they all know is that there’s nothing wrong with sex between consenting adults; that thinking about it doesn’t make you a bad human being—even if your thoughts occasionally go beyond the limits of what society deems acceptable; that talking about it isn’t naughty or immoral; that reading about it isn’t a waste of time 

This anthology includes a complete short story 'Sleeping Dogs and Southern Comfort', excerpts from the up-coming collection 'Stories Out of School' and generous selections from the novels 'A Song for the Girl with the Almond Eyes' and 'The Seven Seductions of Sister Mary Chastity'. And finally, for dessert, a collection of bawdy limericks.







Turn Me On Again--Tell Me Another Story (A New Erotic Anthology)


e-book only:
Amazon
Smashwords (All platforms, perma-free)


Seduction comes in many forms; the subtlest looks and gestures, a virtually imperceptible nod of the head, the tiniest hint of moisture on the lips, a furtive movement of the eye, the slightest flutter of lashes. Seduction is a would-be lover’s hot breath on the back of your neck, the wordless hum of a deep male voice rippling through your body like a giant vibrator.  

I felt his presence there, and the little hairs on my neck stood up, and he was touching me with these big, strong hands, cradling the side of my face, running them down over my shoulders, across the front of the soft flannel shirt I had on. And the whole time he’s breathing those sweet somethin’-somethin’s in my ear until all I want to do is get the hell out of there with him.

Explore seduction in its many forms in this new anthology of erotic fiction from Terrance Aldon Shaw. The collection features two complete short stories, including the first publication of  A Girl from White City as well as a substantial excerpt from the upcoming novel, A Song for the Girl with the Almond Eyes and an extract from the new erotic coming of age story, Summer of ‘69 Here are stories that will arouse, enlighten, inspire, entertain, and, yes, seduce.




Turn Me On--Tell Me a Story 3

e-book only:
Amazon
Smashwords (All platforms, perma-free)


This third sampler of recent fiction is organized around the theme of humor in erotic storytelling. Sometimes, that humor is fairly black, approaching the macabre with a good stiff does of 'meta' to go with the dark jollies. The seven stories and one narrative poem in this book offer sometimes mordant, open-eyed forays into the realm of the transgressive, with perverse twists and turns, leading to bizarrely ironic denouements, worlds-removed from anything resembling the traditional Hollywood happy-ending. 

Sexy, creepy, silly, fun, ‘Turn Me On—Tell Me a Story 3’ makes a perfect, easy introduction to the teeming world of erotic imagination that is the mind of Terrance Aldon Shaw.
