About Huck Pilgrim

Huck Pilgrim has lived on the streets of New York City, in a communal home for Christians, and on an American submarine out of San Diego. He has washed dishes, made costumed helium balloon deliveries, and robbed designer jeans from department stores.

Huck writes gritty stories about submission, blackmail, and coercion. Occasionally he tosses a hand grenade of action and adventure into the mix. Huck's stories are vivid fantasies, exploring the darker sides of submission and exposure. In Huck's stories, the mousy girl becomes suddenly bold and capable, often discovering the hidden slut inside her. The men are handsome, hard-bitten, and cruel, enjoying all manner of debauchery.

Well written and sometimes dark, these stories feature characters from other Huck Pilgrim stories. The title of the anthology (and presumably that of the other volumes as well) belies its content: these short stories do not evoke the light feeling of a pair of summer shorts.

These are more mood pieces than actual stories, so beware if you're looking for plot or resolution.

All three have a wonderfully thick, smoky, noir-ish atmosphere and less than savory characters with dark motivations and desires.

The writing is languid and well paced, although a little rough in spots, with much more implied than actually said. Once an ending is in sight, they all simply fade to black without needing to spell everything out.

These are not your typical 'fuck stories', with smiling and happy people screwing each others brains out, so adjust your expectations. They're more like shots of espresso - dark, hot and bitter. And a small dose is just the right amount.
