The Erotofluidic AgeThe Erotofluidic Age

Reading the three novellas comprising the Erotofluidic Age was so damn fun. I giggled. I guffawed. I was entranced. Imagine, if you will, that classic Victorian romp The Pearl infused with a dash of comedy of manners, a hefty dollop of steampunk, and a refreshingly droll sense of humor, all delivered with a lascivious wink, and you have the Erotofluidic Age.

In the first novella, The Ontological Engine, we’re introduced to Professor Daedalus Tesla, who seeks to harness the power of erotic stimulation to power a machine that can transform matter into living beings. He’s a bit of a mad scientist, but still manages to lure an assistant, Victor Dalrymple to his estate to help him carry on his work after being dismissed by the university. Things don’t go exactly as planned as they seek to collect more “vital fluids” to power their machines. A vicar’s daughter, Miss Pertwee, becomes involved in their escapades, much to the chagrin of the slightly dour Mr. Tesla.

Mr. Tesla resigns himself to Miss Pertwee’s company, but when Miss Pierce shows up at his doorstep in Miss Pierce’s Position, he decides he’s had enough meddling with his work. Miss Pierce proves herself a valuable addition to the laboratory though and is soon involved in household shenanigans.

The last novella is The Terminando. Victor Dalrymple and one of Mr. Tesla’s sentient experiments break through to another universe. It looks a bit like home, but citizens of England can be conscripted into service powering ontological engines. While escaping that fate, Victor meets a society of violas—transgendered beings. They protect him as he tries to create a device to help them transform to their desired gender. In exchange, they will help him repair his machine and return to his own universe. For fans of pony girls, descriptions of the machines will bring moments of bliss.

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the excellent cover design on this ebook. It’s pitch perfect for this collection of novellas. A rollicking time will be had by all, I assure you.
