Smashwords book reviews by Khan

  • The Oviposition Chronicles - Missionary on Dec. 14, 2020

    This series hits my sweet spot for near perfect erotica balance - my inexplicable oviposition fetish, just enough characterization, just dubious / reluctant enough consent, an attention to detail, and perfect length. The author says they wrote these stories because they wanted to see more of this style of work out there, and I do too. Excellent stories.
  • The Oviposition Chronicles - Arena on Dec. 14, 2020

    This series hits my sweet spot for near perfect erotica balance - my inexplicable oviposition fetish, just enough characterization, just dubious / reluctant enough consent, an attention to detail, and perfect length. The author says they wrote these stories because they wanted to see more of this style of work out there, and I do too. Excellent stories.
  • The Oviposition Chronicles - Cargo on Dec. 14, 2020

    This series hits my sweet spot for near perfect erotica balance - my inexplicable oviposition fetish, just enough characterization, just dubious / reluctant enough consent, an attention to detail, and perfect length. The author says they wrote these stories because they wanted to see more of this style of work out there, and I do too. Excellent stories. This book is my second favorite in the series (of the four released so far) because it also includes a gyno fetish. The ending is well done leaving just enough to the imagination.
  • The Oviposition Chronicles - Intromission on Dec. 14, 2020

    This series hits my sweet spot for near perfect erotica balance - my inexplicable oviposition fetish, just enough characterization, just dubious / reluctant enough consent, an attention to detail, and perfect length. The author says they wrote these stories because they wanted to see more of this style of work out there, and I do too. Excellent stories. This story is easily my favorite, probably because it's dark, and involves insects and web bondage. The author's note says it was written first and it took a long time to find the right balance of darkness. I think the resulting work is just dark enough, but in the middle of the story, the hints of how dark it could go interested me.
  • The Oviposition Chronicles - A Filthy Half Dozen on March 29, 2021

    In case you missed the first four entries in the author’s excellent oviposition stories, and share that particular kink, here they are in a cheaper collection featuring two new short stories of five thousand words. The new stories are both excellently framed and paced, though less directly erotic, I felt. Scrambles has stuck with me as a haunting story made extremely vivid with its attention to detail, giving it that sort of more real than real feeling. Harvest is a fascinating sort of idea-story, again using negative space of just-enough exposition to let your imagination fill in the culture and dynamics of such a lifestyle. (Though I do wonder which villager first thought to herself, “Hey, you know what I should try?”) Hoping to see more in the future.
  • Goblin Run on July 25, 2021

    Happy to see new work from Paragonas. Enjoyed the book, as always well written with a unique narrative structure. The main character's emotional journey through to the end was interesting - I was both surprised and not surprised, she describes her experience quite well. Can't say much more without spoilers but for a book about goblins chasing women up to a church it left me with some musings about the expectations of polite society as opposed to what a person really wants and whether societal expectations are always good. Looking forward to the mentioned big sci fi work.
  • Interrogated by the Military Officer: Submission on May 25, 2022

    A great erotic interrogation story. Well paced, the agent’s experiences and feelings make for a fun journey.
  • Dark Lord’s Conquest: A Noncon Fantasy Novella on June 26, 2022

    I’m a sucker for a good erotic interrogation story and this one fits the bill. The villain is very dark, in an offhandedly violent way (the escalating stories about what he did to the protagonist’s brother paint a picture.) The sexual tension between the villain and our heroine is also well executed, as well as his mixture of disdain and attraction to her. While I found her “fantasies about being captured” and her falling for his dominating presence compelling on their own, it sometimes clashed in my head that this was the man that violently dismembered her brother, publicly, at length. I think as much as could be done to show her conflicting emotions was probably done, especially with a scene toward the end, but it was a little distracting. A fine read for fans of this sort of setup.
  • The Witch’s Bargain: A Paranormal Forced Breeding Story on July 30, 2022

    A delightfully well written tale about being careful what you wish for, hot and straightforward. A quick but memorable read.
  • Guard Rail on Oct. 08, 2022

    Just in time for Halloween, a delightful period piece about a woman who takes a job on a mysterious train whose final stop is inside an ancient mountain. The language and attention to detail really stand out; words I’d never seen before flowed through the text and while I looked some up for fun usually just the feel of the word itself was enough to glean its meaning. The main character has a delightful way of describing her descent into debauchery, never crude yet always conveying her mix of feeling like what she is seeing and feeling is wrong but also her desire rising up inside her after years of denial. The very end of the book made me chuckle and was the perfect sendoff to the tale. Highly recommended.
  • Frank (A Gothic Folly) on Oct. 10, 2022

    I picked this up last year and somehow didn’t realize I hadn’t read it. Just in time for Halloween, I corrected that oversight. What a delightfully lived-in universe (as another reviewer mentioned, the book’s introduction is worth the price by itself in amusement.) And yet it transitions to a satisfying romantic story with a consistently dry tone, a fun take on love in the world of mad acience. Highly recommended!
  • Breeding The Witch on April 17, 2023

    A great oviposition and sneaky demons vs. mildly inept witch tale, something we need more of! Well written with a nice level of detail and creativity. Especially like the descriptions of the demons.
  • Tentacle Catalogers on June 20, 2023

    A promising start to a new demonic / alien reproductive adventure! A big part of the hotness for me is the way that the demons alter the woman’s anatomy to become compatible with their spawn and the submission here is well done. Looking forward to more!
  • Heavy with the Plant Alien's Tentacle Brood on June 20, 2023

    A promising start in a new genre I wholeheartedly endorse, where women volunteer to reproduce with aliens and the story of what they experience. As an introductory story it felt a little rushed but I look forward to more lingering on the scenes in the future!
  • Bred by the Alien's Monster Pet on June 20, 2023

    Really enjoyable second story in the series, with a unique alien and its member and description of the experience from the heroine. Scratched my itch of a sufficiently non-human encounter and what that might be like. Looking forward to more!
  • Tentacles in the Ancient Ruins on July 08, 2023

    I enjoyed how different this story is and am always a fan of eldritch horrors coming for our women and transforming them. Well told and enjoyable.
  • A Demon Sheds His Chains on July 19, 2023

    A delightful dub to non con story about a demon slipping loose from hastily applied bindings, again at a quality level not often seen for the price. Concise characterization and for my tastes just dark enough. Looking forward to more from this author!
  • Gothic Follies on Sep. 28, 2023

    Probably one of the best collections of erotic fiction you can find anywhere. The theme is one of Becoming, of sexual awakening, and features the author's trademark mix of concise character development, in-story world building, and clever wordplay that lightens just at the right times. Few people can run with an idea as thoroughly as the author. Goblin Run, Frank, and Guard Rail are all great stories and if you haven't read them before, you're in for a treat. Each features a journey of a young ingenue or otherwise innocent woman slowly understanding the power of sexuality, no matter the societal judgment. The stories take their time and develop naturally in the best possible way, and have that relatable nature of a supernatural exploration of a duality we're all familiar with. The highlight of the collection to me though are the new Becoming stories, featuring a Victorian Industrial Revolution where the new science and inventions are dedicated almost entirely to the spectacular public demonstrations of their efficacy at bringing a woman to climax. Written in the breathless style of awed pomposity from the time, each story is a delight in its own way and a genuinely creative alternate history of women owning their sexuality and using it to advertise their energy and talent in the pleasurable arts. A bargain at twice the price!
  • Xenofestation 3-01 - Trojan Stratagems on Dec. 17, 2023

    Ring in the New Year with your favorite sci-fi smut! Xenofestation volume 3 starts out with its trademark mix of story, sex, and fun. Quite a few story threads are brought back to the front and I’m looking forward to finding out more about these developments. Plus there’s zero G dinosaur sex. What’s not to like? The quality of writing alone makes this series an insane bargain.
  • Ravishing the Star Princess - Part 1 – The Submission of Anasia on Dec. 24, 2023

    A creative setup with the princess going “under cover” through mind control. Well written with her gradual conversion described well, and hot sex of course, Looking forward to more!
  • Something More Comfortable: An Erotic Science Fiction Short on Feb. 04, 2024

    This series opener is chock full of dry humor (I’m especially fond of “The Beige Nebula”) and hot tool-assisted self-satisfaction. Sort of like a mix between Barbarella and a lovable loser, Bellara is quite relatable as random things go wrong in a very modern way. Looking forward to more,
  • Quarantine Breach: An Erotic Science Fiction Short on Feb. 04, 2024

    Enjoyable even without reading the first story, Bellara continues to be a likable horny not-quite-a-loser but not-quite-not-a-loser either. The creatures are fun and the humor is once again perfectly calibrated. Looking forward to more adventures.
  • Xenofestation 3-02 - Uncovered on Feb. 18, 2024

    The third volume continues building up questions and bringing in sinister backstory, tying together different storylines and adding more and more intrigue around the origins and goals of the programme itself. Like a good TV show that leaves you wondering and theorizing from episode to episode, details emerge here that are fun to think about. On top of that Ornella has a fun implantation scene, as well as Tali having an insightful experience equal parts humorous and dark, without crossing the line into the gross. Highly recommended as always.
  • Xenofestation 3-03 - The Chase on April 02, 2024

    Another banger of an episode with a strong integration and theme with breeding as opposed to oviposition, pursuit and chasing, and the notion of the ostensible “sub” actually being the one in charge. Ornella has a surprisingly satisfying pure hetero experience in the opening which is refreshing, and the theme builds from there. The series continues to explore sexuality through science fiction in a very satisfying way, and the sex is hot as well. And the humor is spot on too!
