There's no need for continuity or historical accuracy. In fact, the less the better. AFE is about breaking from tradition and the ties that bind conventional narratives.
Traditional narrative is the structure of BDSM. The characters and author and audience are chained together and given only bits of pleasure at a time, caught up in the ritual of time.
There is a need for sex. Lots of it. And everything legal goes. The stranger the sex, the better. The more surreal, magical, mythic, impossible the sex the better. This isn't just about getting off or enjoying a romance. It's about stretching your mind and imagination and being wowed while you're orgasming.
Think Robot Chicken. Or what we all probably did as kids with our dolls. This is play. It's funny. It's irony. Why shouldn't we laugh as we come? Why can't we have fun while we're being aroused? Does everything have to be so serious?
Yet, there is seriousness. Medusa is struggling with issues of identity, even as Kali has dangerous sexual escapades. Lincoln has deep conflict over the civil war. And Marie Curie is trying to make sense of her abusive marriage. (Those last two are upcoming novels.) Life is not just a farce. It's not just tragedy and it's not just an encyclopedia of facts. It is all those things and many more.
Books shall be forthcoming. At the end of November, Abraham Lincoln Eats Pie at the Kali Cafe. But for now. a free sample, a novel in progress, awaits you:
I'm Lady Ristretto, writing under a pseudonym. My pseudonym has a pseudonym.
