BLURB: Humankind possesses a dual nature, the ability to rise to the brightest heights—or sink to the darkest and most perverse depths.
What inspires some to reach the pinnacles of virtue while others cannot resist the temptations of vice? Is it something innate, or a result of destiny and circumstance?
Delve into the minds and spirits of saints and sinners alike with a collection of stories that explore the call toward good or evil—and the consequences of answering it. For while rewards certainly await the righteous, there are also pleasures to be found in the darkness. Venture off the expected path with some of the most innovative voices in LGBT speculative fiction as they present their unique takes on the classic vices and virtues.
Includes my story TRAITOR (Fortitude):
Two men face each other from opposing sides of the political fence: the interrogator and the traitor.
Aiden Hanwell rarely knows the name of prisoners he interrogates on behalf of MI5’s specialist Department. But at their London base, he’s shocked to find Cameron Fischer – a man he knows only too well. Cam was a fellow agent but defected to a terrorist cell six months ago, turning traitor to the Department and to Aiden, his lover. Now Cam has returned, but as a prisoner with no hope of escape.
Aiden struggles to understand Cam’s motives while nursing his personal pain. Cam is haunted by his betrayal of a lover he’d cared for deeply. In those tense hours, neither of them can see any common ground or chance to reconcile, unless there are other secrets to be uncovered—and their skills are up to the task.
