Spotted a very young Hobbit in Back to the Future

We love our fantasy & science fiction films in this house. Of course, we’re watching back to back Back To The Future films this week. If you like that sort of thing then you know why.

So it was fun to see a very young 8-year-old Elijah Wood (Frodo Baggins) in Back to the Future 2. I didn’t know he was in it but as I usually sit watching the credits after a film I spotted his name. You can google it to see a picture. He hasn’t changed much 🙂

…extended Lord of the Rings films  almost run on a continuous loop here!

One month on how many words have i done?

After promising myself I’m going to monitor my output of good words of fiction I have failed to do so.

I could list the reasons and excuses, but lets focus on the constructive:

I have finished and published At Last, a gay contemporary erotic short romance.

  • It was already partly written and is 14,000 words.

I have finished and published my first novel, Deviant.

  • Some people call 48,000 words a novel and Deviant is a complete story in itself, but I think of it as a part of a bigger work. The next part is what I’m working on now.

I have learnt to use scrivener in the past few days to make working on my next novel much easier.  According to Scriverner my current work (The Arrival)  is at 28,948. I think I may have roughly 20,000 words more to write. But I also know some of what is down is a very rough first draft so can’t count all those 29k as being ‘good’ words.

  • I’ve said it before, but I am going to monitor and record my output in raw words this week. And I’ll report back.

I intend to focus exclusively on The Arrival, which is part two of my series of Forbidden love set in a Matriarchal dystopia.

Free SF Erotica Short Story The Boxes by H J Perry & Adria Kane

I’m pleased to let you know you can try out some of my writing for free on any e-reader as  The Boxes is FREE. Links below.

The Boxes Erotica Short

In this book we describe a place where women pay for sexual satisfaction. Fast and Efficient.

The place and service we describe in this book does not exist. But it could.

An entrepreneur could set it up in no time.

Giving it the label SF will put off many readers, who think of aliens, machines and time travel.

But

Speculative Fiction

It about what the future could hold even it these things don’t exist now.

In the same way, Science Fiction can (and often does) become science reality.

Less than 100 years ago computers, iphones and the internet were science fiction.

Adria and I both like to think outside the box and we read and write SF as well as other stuff.

I could imagine a place very similar to this existing in The Capital of the Matriarchy….

West Beach & The Matriarchal Society – Where does it come from?

I wrote the story that is now published as the Deviant in November 2014 as part of nano month. I did no planning of the story and did not even think up the characters of Mia until 1st November!

Rayfe already existed, as did his roommates Paul, Jay and Zander, as I was more than halfway through writing the story that will be published next. Set at the same time, in the same universe, Arrival should finally be finished this month!

The world that I’m writing about in these stories has existed in my mind for much longer, for a few years.

How Did I think Up West Beach?

WB was dreamt up in my erotic fantasies and I’ve worked on it over time.

  • A brothel for women.
  • Where women can have any need met or kink serviced by willing men. Men who are both eager and enthusiastic.
  • A brothel because after all the sex is done, we women can walk away. I like fantasies that involve sex between strangers with no ongoing relationship (as you will see in my published erotica shorts).
  • When I’m enjoying this fantasy all my favourite fantasy men are there ready to do whatever with me! How I’d love to cast the actors for the film!

I took this part of my erotic fantasies and worked on it in the series of novel s and short stories that are (to come) under the umbrella of Matriarchy and Corruption.

Note: I’ve written loads in this world and it is unpublished as the moment, safely saved on google drive!

How Did West Beach – the brothel – end up in the Matriarchy, 75 years in the future?

There are quite a few complex reasons, hard to say which is the most important and I’m not going to explain in too much detail. Here is the list, make of it what you will. Or leave a comment if you want to know more.

  • I like Sci-Fi perhaps it’s obvious,
  • It will not be obvious at all, but John Carpenter’s film Ghosts of Mars played some part in my inspiration.
  • I frequently ask myself What If… things ere the opposite. What if we had matriarchy instead of patriarchy? What if heterosexuality was taboo instead of normal? What if our species became infertile? What would the end of the world be like…
  • I’ve always been a radical! I like to question and challenge our fundamental assumptions about the world we live in. A fictional, future dystopian society can permit ways to explore real issues in our own society.
  • Many philosophers have argued that our ideas about the world we live in are not based on facts, but we learn the dominant ideas of our time through education, friends and family, the media, etc. And we come to accept these opinions as facts.
  • What if…?
