She is wearing spandex pants decorated with the bold black and white icons of half a dozen Tokyo corporations. Her hair is in dreads, spiced with glittering watch parts. Her shoes are new and intelligent, contouring to her feet as she runs out of the crowd towards the place. Her poncho is tiger-striped, the newest Euro-trash fad, and the bystanders can see, as she pumps those strong legs in those black and white spandex pants, that she doesn't have a top on, and that her nipples (flashing out from under the red and black of the poncho) are only covered by crosses of black electrical tape. She is a mix of black and something else. All can see – even in the midnight glare of Broadway's brilliance of neon, lasers, fluorescents, and headlights from blurring cars – that her skin is a brown like stained wood. Her face is high-cheeked, her lips dark brown, her eyes hidden behind mirrored, image-intensifying glasses. She is running for her life: down the street, through the sidewalk crowd, panic in her strides, panting breaths. It is drizzling, like static.

"There are only two people in the world I envy. One is the late Roger Zelazny, whose talent for an almost jazz improvisational way of writing I could never match. The other is M. Christian, for writing exactly what I’d write if only I could get off my ass. Which is to say, raunchy hallucinatory sexfuture dreams that never fail to arouse me and kick me in the gut at the same time." —Cecilia Tan

"M.Christian is one hell of a writer. A no-holds-barred storyteller, he embraces his reader at the start and doesn’t let go until long after the end." —Mari Adkins, Apex Publications

"There is an uncommon variety of material in here, from cyberpunk to space opera, alternative history to dystopia. The science-fictional settings are manifold, as are the sexual positions and inclinations — there’s something in this book for everyone."
—Johann Carlisle, Future Fire

Calling M.Christian versatile is a tremendous understatement. Extensively published in science fiction, fantasy, horror, thrillers, erotica, and even non-fiction, M.Christian has become an acknowledged master, with more than 400 to his credit. M.Christian is known and respected not just for his passion on the page but also his staggering imagination and chameleonic ability to successfully and convincingly write for any and all orientations.

M.Christian's short fiction has been collected into many bestselling books in a wide variety of genres, including the Lambda Award finalist Dirty Words, Love without Gun Control, Body Work, Welcome to Weirdsville, and erotic science fiction including Rude Mechanicals, Technorotica, and Skin Effect.
