BLURB
Enter live action hentai: Mt. Everest of the porn industry. No one has scaled that mountain and lived to tell the tale. In fact, nobody’s even attempted to scale that fucking mountain. Now legendary porn producer Fitzel Kingswood has a plan and he’s recruited Elsa, a disillusioned pornstar who thinks she’s seen and done it all. With millions of dollars at stake and a marketing plan that can’t possibly fail, it’s time to get Squidfucked.


BONUS MATERIAL
* ‘A Hot, Wet End to a Long Dry Spell’ (2013)


DISCLAIMER: Not only do I know Kerry Lipp, I was actually the first editor to publish one of his short stories. This fact has no bearing whatsoever on the impartiality of this review.

This may be the most pointless review ever written. Let’s be honest: you’ve already decided if you’re going to buy this novelette, based on the title, cover, and blurb. Nothing I can say will convince you one way or the other. Suffice it to say that the story itself is well told. Lipp has an easy-going, conversational writing style and a good ear for dialogue. His characters are lightly sketched, but perfectly adequate for the tale being told. The set pieces, both pornographic and gruesome, are played for maximum impact, with Lipp’s tongue wedged firmly in his cheek… I hope. (****)


* ‘A Hot, Wet End to a Long Dry Spell’ (2013)
In comparison, this bonus story errs towards the sexy and (dare I say?) romantic, whilst still being very, very wrong. (***)
