Celebrating Sensuality. Intended for mature audiences, 18 and over

Eric Key’s New Story


Eric Key’s new story — Mstislav — is out, and it’s available for free at Smashwords.

Eric used to have a WordPress blog, where he talked not only about his writing, but stories from others. This support was extended to other people’s blogs, where I saw he was a frequent commenter. He also supported my writing on my blog, for which I’m grateful. It’s in this spirit of helping out a fellow indie author that I’m posting about his new story — and a couple of his other stories that are freshly available on Smashwords.

Before I get into his three ebooks, I want to say that reading them comes at an appropriate time for me. The novel I’m writing for NaNoWriMo is horror, and it was really interesting to read what another author has done within the genre.

However, Eric’s stories aren’t just horror — they’re erotic horror. So you need to know that these stories are only for readers 18 years and older, due to the explicit descriptions of sex and violence. As Eric’s warning message on his ebooks says, “This story is a work of fiction and it is intended for mature audiences. All the characters depicted in sexual situations are over the age of 18.”

The first two stories below are erotic horror, and they bring a big, walloping dose of both of those. These are not the stories for you if you want a romance with sparkly vampires. What you get instead are intense stories with scenes that come right at you, and there are things in them that I’ve never read about before. Enough to maybe make Stephen King flinch. Indeed, Eric has a very vivid imagination. These are dark stories that aren’t exactly for squeamish readers.

The third story below is erotica and contains BDSM. I’ve never read Fifty Shades of Grey, so I can’t compare Eric’s For the Glory to that popular BDSM book, but I can tell you that Eric’s story has very hot scenes. It also might be the only erotica book with a Gettier problem in it.

The blurbs for each book are under the titles. Click on the covers or titles to jump to their Smashword pages. As of today, all of these ebooks are free…
Mstislav, by Eric Keys


Angela is a school teacher with a double life. She thinks her secrets might get her into trouble someday, but it turns out the the secrets of one of her students and her husband are far more of a threat to the world than her dabbling in erotic writing. As things come to light Angela is drawn into a world of violence, vengeance, blood, sex and glory. You see, she’s about to meet Mstislav.

Grace and Blood, by Eric Keys
Grace and Blood

All Gracie wanted was to fulfill her passionate desire for her boss, Kevin. But when she finally makes her move she finds herself drawn into a story beyond her understanding. It’s a story of fear, blood and lust that might set fire to the world.

For the Glory, by Eric Keys
For the Glory

Sometimes it takes extraordinary measures to turn hate into love.

Ilsa was driven by rage when she met Saul. He was everything she despised, but he saw something more in her. But does he have the determination to break through Ilsa’s defenses? And more importantly, does Ilsa have the strength to let him?

Warning: There are ideas and words in here which might make you uncomfortable, but there is also plenty of hot BDSM action. And maybe there will be a happy ending.


One last thing: Eric’s new blog is The Blood, The Glory, and The Grace.

  1. Thanks! Ah, The Gettier Problem… I have to admit I feel like I’ve spent close to 20 years looking for a way to work that into a story… The joys and sorrows of having studied epistemology…

    Thanks for the plug! It’s much appreciated. Can’t wait to hear how your horror novel turns out.


    • I’d never heard of The Gettier Problem, so your story taught me that — and it’s really cool that you added it to a story πŸ™‚ And I learned other things from your stories, things that never occurred to me before… you’ve totally got a vibrant imagination.


      • It’s a fascinating little logical puzzle that kind of blood the lid open in the little corner of philosophy that it affected. Gettier himself was know for sitting around the Umass Amhearst dinning commons writing out little logic problems all day. The story – perhaps apocryphal – goes that the head of the department told him they were going to deny him tenure if he didn’t publish something soon. So, he took one of the little logic problems he had been playing with in the cafeteria and wrote a paper around it. At a mere three pages it is probably – word for word – one of the most influential papers in American Philosophy. His twitter would have exploded had there been twitter back then. πŸ™‚

        Thanks for the kind words! I never thought of my writing as pedagogical before.


      • That’s a great story πŸ™‚ I like the image of a professor simply writing down problems all day — and then getting kicked in the pants to do something with them. Something huge, from the sound of it πŸ™‚


      • It’s hugeness is difficult to understand without a lot of context in Anglo-American Analytic Philosophy, but yeah… It was big. And it’s such a great story that I don’t really care if it’s true or not!


  2. Thanks for the recommendation, Gus. Treads lightly, however, Eric seems like a great chap. πŸ™‚ Wondering if I can get Erik to write about butterflies and cupcakes. πŸ˜‰ I’ll be sure to introduce myself. Enjoy your night.
