Intimate Journeys
by SS Hampton Sr

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Erotic Sci-Fi Fantasy Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

The most intimate journeys, though they are polar opposites, involve the unparalleled pleasures of sex and the inevitable unknown of death. Both are an experience unlike anything else: one is sought by everyone, while the other is avoided by everyone - for as long as they can. Sometimes these polar opposites complement each other.

EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT:

“Grandpa’s Bon Qui Qui,” Intimate Journeys

A cold, brilliant sun hung in the deep blue Afghan sky above ancient mountains whose snowy peaks shone so brightly that it hurt the eyes.

Sparse pine trees on a smaller rocky peak rustled noisily in the strength of a wind sweeping up from steep, forested ridges that blended into one narrow ridge for the final zigzag up to the peak. To the northeast of the small peak and curving southwest around it, rose a range of even higher, snow-blanketed mountains so tall, so rugged, and so often shrouded in stormy clouds they might have been home to forgotten, nameless gods that predated mankind.

Sometimes it was easy to imagine that the solitary peak harbored the last vestige of human life left in the world, especially when one gazed on mysterious valleys below that were often hidden by thin, wispy or stormy clouds. The peak wasn’t immune to the grayish clouds or storms. Sometimes, dazzling lightning flared silently mere feet overhead as sheets of rain poured from the roiling clouds that a hand could touch. At other times a silent, heavy snow drifted out of the clouds.

Most beautiful and mysterious of all, when the wind drove the snow across the peak and into the air, it created billowing tresses of silverish hair that sparkled in the sunlight. The long tresses trailed into the distance, shadowing the smaller mountains and valleys below. Sometimes the blowing snow murmured as if with the hiss of sharp, indrawn breath interspersed with a low moan of rising pleasure...

  6. Good evening everyone.

    Yes, hopefully this collection of short stories has something for everyone. Military fiction, science fiction, fantasy, horror, a slice of life, and even a bit of erotic romance sometimes blended with one of the genre above.

    Thanks for visiting, and have a great weekend!

    Stan
