Two Men, A Rat, And A Lady

Tales of Obscenity #1_6x9size

Announced here, you can now pre-order the limited hardcover of Tales of Obscenity #1 magazine. Click on the link to check out the full table of contents; which includes a review of DININ’ by Sheri White, an interview of me by John Everson, an article co-written with my fiancé, Sheryl Scanlon, and my 10k novelette, “Two Men, A Rat, And A Lady”. Below is a description of the story.

Steve and Marc are two men with nothing much going on in their lives. They work little, live in a rat-infested apartment, sponge off the government and enjoy the simple things in life: booze, cigarettes and women. It’s on one lonely night they decide to take their wasted lifestyle to the next level… by calling Miss. Jena’s Escort Service.

Deanna is a smart, good looking and goal driven lady, but works in a terrible profession. If she makes it through one last night, she’ll have enough money to retire from the lifestyle she’s never quite become accustomed… If life was only that simple.

What ensues is a night full of debauchery and torture. Will Deanna have the inner-strength to make it out of the trashed apartment alive or will the two men and a filthy rat reign supreme?

Only time and one of the men’s conscience holds the answer.

People who pre-order the Limited Edition Hardcovers will be the first to hear about (and be able to order) any other issues we publish.

The Hardcover Special Limited Signed & Numbered Edition is signed & numbered by the editor and will feature exclusive original artwork by Luke Spooner on the limitation page created especially just for this edition, and will never appear anywhere else. These copies are available for only £29.95 with FREE worldwide shipping!

The Hardcover Special Limited Signed & Lettered Edition is signed & lettered by the editor and available in only 52 copies.

These copies are available for only £49.95 with FREE worldwide shipping!

Both of these very collectable hardcover editions will be printed in FULL COLOUR throughout and will feature exclusive original artwork on the limitation page. The books are case laminate, which is basically a hardcover book without a dust jacket. The cover artwork is printed directly onto the hardcover case. They will be printed using Premium Colour high-quality printing on 70#, 378 PPI White paper, as opposed to the Standard Colour printing of the magazine which is printed on 50#, 512 PPI White paper. So the paper stock for the hardcover editions is thicker and better quality and the interior full colour printing quality is much superior. The magazine print and production quality is excellent but the quality of the hardcovers will be much, much higher!
