Ota Discovers Fire by Vinnie Tesla

The winner of Circlet Press’s 2012 “Fantastic Erotica” award, Ota Discovers Fire is a cliché-busting fantasy tale of magic, kinky sex, and witty dialogue.

The story follows Ota, a novice fire magician with no wilderness survival skills, who is traveling through the forest to reach his relatives in Ivy City. His journey is enlivened when he comes across a girl who claims to be able to turn herself into a wolf, and when she agrees to guide and protect him… for a price. As with all of Vinnie Tesla’s Circlet publications, Ota Discovers Fire is at once funny and sexy, a masterful display of worldbuilding, and defies standard fantasy tropes.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Circlet Press, readers were given the opportunity to vote for their favorite story from among all the stories published by Circlet from 2008 to the present. Ota Discovers Fire–originally published in Circlet Press’s travel-themed anthology, Like a Long Road Home–beat out hundreds of other stories to claim the title of top story. (The top 19 stories have been compiled in a print anthology, Fantastic Erotica, also recently released by Circlet Press.) Ota Discovers Fire is available here as a stand-alone ebook, with bonus glossary.

“… A traveler’s tale that blends anthropological satire with a compelling setting and delightfully hot human-werewolf sex scenes that flow seamlessly from the plot.” – Publishers Weekly (starred review of Fantastic Erotica)

The ambulance pulled away at two, just as the glazier arrived. Chris could see them both through the window as he waited on hold. Thunder crashed; it was technically too early for a Nor’easter, but water spouts had been spotted off the north shore, and out of a sunny afternoon a deepening gray sky had grown and harsh winds shook the pin oaks on the front lawns. In retrospect, he thought, perhaps this wasn’t the best day for a party…

So begins another day at the Long Island mansion where elite slaves are trained to serve the masters and mistresses of the world with impeccable grace. Grendel and Alexandra are hosting a dinner party and their latest trainees–as well as the patience and resourcefulness of their majordomo Chris Parker–will be put to the test.
