[Free eBook] My Lady Queen by John Cleve aka Andrew J. Offutt [Vintage Erotic Historical Adventure]

My Lady Queen by John Cleve, pseudonym for the late Andrew J. Offutt, a prolific American sf/fantasy author who also moonlighted by writing erotica, is the 4th novel in the The Crusader series of medieval historical f/m erotica adventure romps, free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Endeavour Press.

This was originally published in 1975 by Dell Grove. The series is set during the late 12th century’s Third Crusade under the leadership of Richard the Lionheart, starring a young man who rises from humble peasant origins to becoming a warrior, with plenty of exciting battles and erotic encounters along the way. At the time of writing (circa the early 1970s-80s), the sex scenes were racier than what was generally available, though would probably be considered tame today.

This installment takes him to the city of Tyre on the Mediterranean coast of what is now Lebanon, which is under threat of siege again, as he is caught in the wiles of a beautiful and vicious Frankish noblewoman and must seduce Saracen secrets from a lady spy. NB: due to the wartime setting, there are apparently also occasional scenes of sexual violence some readers may find disturbing.

Offered worldwide, available at Amazon.

[Free eBook] Spicy Slipstream Stories [Speculative Fiction Anthology]

Spicy Slipstream Stories, edited by Nick Mamatas & the late Jay Lake, recipient of the 2004 John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer, is a standalone speculative fiction anthology with experimental literary and LGBT erotic elements, free for a limited time courtesy of LGBT specialty publisher Lethe Press.

The genre-bending “slipstream” category combines sfnal speculative fiction elements with literary fiction form, and in this case, occasional eroticism (I own this from a long-ago purchase and it’s fairly mild in the stories I’ve read), with this anthology featuring risqué homages to the sexily adventurous pulp fiction of yesteryear by contributors including World Fantasy Award-winning Ekaterina Sedia, Carrie Vaughan (author of the popular Kitty Norville urban fantasy series), and many more.

Offered DRM-fee worldwide, available at Amazon.
