The Caring-Shell

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Far far away in another galaxy, on an earthlike planet, there exists a race of mammalian creatures who lay eggs and are functional hermaphrodites.

Want to try an ebook that has a lot of alien sex, but only between aliens? You won’t find any humans in The Caring-Shell. This isn't pure erotica since the plot doesn’t focus entirely on sex, but there’s a considerable amount of it going on, sometimes nice and sometimes not.

The Caring-Shell tells the tale of Jilvray of the Clan of Hilvesh. Taken captive by this infamous Clan, ee has long ago given up all hope of escape. Then a new scharn is brought in, a youngster who still longs for freedom and isn’t about to give up without a fight.

I write what I call Anthropological Science Fiction, for lack of a better term. No hard science, no space ships or galactic empires, and definitely no humans. I prefer to imagine what other sorts of sentient beings on distant planets might be like, especially ones who reproduce in ways very unlike we do, and then figure out what their societal arrangements might be like as a result.
If you enjoy reading stories about life on other worlds told from the point of view of beings who differ from us in various ways, this book, along with my other SF books, is for you.
