The stories that delighted us as boys, now told with a sensual edge for us as men!
"The Glass Coffin". "The Elves". "Fitcher's Bird". Old fairy tales that might provoke a wistful grin at their magical storytelling. Author William Holden has breathed new life into such stories in A Twist of Grimm, and his retellings strike true, like Eros's arrow: below the belt. Herein are such tales as "Wicked Little Tongues" - a shoemaker discovers new lust brought on by a pair of diminutive trolls - and "The Flaccid Cock that Sang", and more.
In almost all traditions, winter has been a time to huddle around the fire and be thankful for those the fire is shared with. The holidays grew out of a need to celebrate that time, from Christmas to Chanukah to Solstice. The longest night of the year has always held some special mystery, and we're proud to present you with several stories of how those mysteries bear fruit.
The imagination of William Holden is one that values sweat and sperm and blood. And shadows to hide the rivulets of these fluids as they descend and drip from the naked flesh of men. These tales of homoerotic horror haunt a listener long after they are over. Stories of a lecherous carnival barker who deals in breath and souls, a town where Halloween has become more than playful tricks and sweet treats, the promise of desire at the razor's edge of life and death.
