Run Like Hell (Book 1 of Wandering Monsters)

Elliot Kay's new book Run Like Hell asks and answers the question: "What is it like to be the monsters when an adventuring party kicks down your front door?"

Although the book is technically game-related literature, it doesn't have the usual hallmarks of character sheets or explicit rules elements. It's just set very solidly in the generic fantasy game setting, with the perspective reversed. Gaming fans will have a lot to recognize while finding quite a lot of new and interesting elements from the perspective shift. It's definitely light reading, and quick at just under 200 pages.

Highly recommended for gamers, who will find a few hours of light amusement at a good price (free via Kindle Unlimited). Non-gamers can probably take a pass, not because it's bad, but because you won't have any idea what's going on or why it's funny. Very reminiscent of Drew Hayes.

Natural Consequences

In case you are ever hit by the supernatural version of a meteor strike out of a blue sky and magically bound to a succubus and an angel, there are a number of steps that really should be followed as soon as practically possible:

  1. Have a lot of sex with the succubus. Duh.

  2. Convince the angel to join in.

  3. Move out of your mom's basement


That last step can get tricky when a werewolf wants to mate with you -- as forcefully as required, two witches are worried they are getting left out of the fun, heaven is threatening to demote your angel, and the vampires have an all-points-bulletin out on your ass.

Good Intentions

Good Intentions is somewhere between male adolescent wish-fulfillment, soft-core erotica, paranormal romance, and urban fantasy. The plot revolves around a pretty ordinary guy, still living in his mom's basement, who decides to sneak into the local graveyard to get a few atmospheric pictures. He's hoping to use the pictures to impress a pair of cute goth chicks in his photography course, lacking the gumption to simply approach them without a prop.

As fate would have it, though, he interrupts a midnight ritual and ends up supernaturally bound to a succubus on one side and an angel on the other. Permanently bound. And of course they are both female, and supernaturally attractive, as you might expect.

It's not exactly a fate worse than death.
