When Tanel's lover takes him to see the teller of naughty stories, he does not expect it to be a neuter, nor for it to challenge him to examine his own preconceptions, his fears...his ability to love.
This story won a Strange Horizons Reader's Choice Award and was included in the Best of Strange Horizons, Volume 2. It was also a finalist for the 2003 Spectrum Awards in the short fiction category. It is included in the print book collection Clays Beneath the Skies.
A sequel, Unknowable, is now available in the kindle store.
With this book being the first in a series it does well to introduce you to the lore. What it lacked was a well understood narrator which whispers so soft compared to the other sound your left on the side confused and unable to decipher the few words you can pick up.
